Mi Cocina Review
Traveling foodies favor this chic outdoor restaurant at Casa Natalia, San José del Cabo's loveliest boutique hotel. Torches glow on the dining terrace, which is surrounded by palm trees and gently tinkling 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 mixes marinated octopus with Chinese noodles in a to-die-for salad, grills baby scallops over a vegetable tartare, and stuffs poblano chilies with lamb and Oaxacan cheese. Catch of the day is served with your choice of saucing—Veracruz, Mediterranean, or Provençal style—and 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.
