Food, service and wine was terrific. Try the octopus appetizer - YUMMY! The One and Only Palmilla where the restaurant is housed is amazing and beautiful, especially now for the holidays.

The place: it's truly Mexican and authentic. Palmilla; the property is outstanding and the way they layout the restaurant makes a nice contrast between interior and exterior. The food: it's presented in beautiful Mexican plates, the lighting at night coming out of these umbrellas make a very romantic place to be. The service: it's not intuitive, I spend more than...

We were staying just outside of Cabo San Lucas but made a special point of coming here for dinner. It was probably one of our best nights during our vacation. Food, setting and service were superb. The bar is special -- don't miss having a cocktail either before or after dinner.

Casually elegant dining at it's finest. Overlooking the pool and the ocean, mixed with beautifully lit umbrellas and live music, this is a great place to spend an evening. We started with cocktails in the bar under a huge palapa roof in cushy chairs. The cucumber martini was perfect as was the mezcal negroni. Olives and almonds served with your... More

The property is beautiful. Once we were dropped off by our taxi, we were met with a golf cart and taken to the restaurant. We enjoyed a cocktail first at the bar. The bartender provided us with marcona almonds and olives. Nice way to whet our appetite. Then we were taken to our table. We chose to sit inside. We... More

Lunch had salads and especially good fried octopus. The resort staff were phenomenal. We were there with two chioldren - 4 & 6 years old and the waiters... More
