At this outdoor restaurant at Casa Natalia boutique hotel, fire bowls glow on the dining terrace, which is surrounded by palm trees and gentle waterfalls, blending the four elements: earth, wind, fire, and water. Tables are spaced far enough apart so that you don't have to share your whispered sweet nothings with neighbors. Chef-owner Loic Tenoux experiments with his ingredients, calling his approach "Euro-Mexican Bistro." He serves catch-of-the-day with ginger lemongrass salsa, grills vegetables and steak for sizzling fajitas on jalapeño tortillas, and prepares an exceptional free range "chicken chocolate" with caramelized apples and a dark chocolate pepper salsa.The seafood-infused risotto is always a hit. A generous wine list pairs well with the menu, while the hotel's adjoining martini bar offers more colorful drink selections.

As good as the food is, it is really the atmosphere that sets this apart from the other places we ate in Los Cabos. It was tranquil, with a fountain, tall trees, nice lighting, and, overall, a quiet, peaceful setting with attentive service. The prices were not cheap but reasonable in comparison with a lot of other places.
