Los Cabos Restaurants

Pitahayas

Updated 08/14/2014

Fodor's Review

Chef Volker Romeike blends Asian and Polynesian ingredients with local products for a menu that showcases well-executed Pacific Rim fusion. Above the beach in the Sheraton's Hacienda del Mar resort in Cabo del Sol, Pitahayas is set under a soaring palapa overlooking the rollicking surf. Seafood-heavy dishes are the specialty. Try the blackened catch of the day accompanied with mango-papaya relish, or the famous coconut shrimp with lilikoi horseradish sauce and chipotle

cilantro cream. For an impressive presentation and fresh flavor, the ahi tuna comes with avocado, pineapple, and tobiko. Also on offer is one of the largest wine selections in all of Mexico with nearly 3,000 bottles, as well as private dining in the wine cellar for 8 to 10 people.

The ultimate!

Thank goodness we had a $75 off voucher obtained by doing a time share presentation. That made our $210 dinner for two only $135! We did the $80 tasting menu and were not disappointed. We knew it would be our big splurge night, and we're not sorry -- what a lovely setting (but we actually preferred De Cortez at the same resort) and impressive service.

Never never never again

The advertisements said formal attire required, so we drove over from the Westin expecting an elegant dining experience. What we found was a large, loud restaurant filled with (mostly) Americans in t-shirts and pool coverups. It took 20 minutes (and a trip to the hostess) to have a waiter arrive at our table. He hurredly took our order for a bottle of water and handed me the wine list, which was printed in no larger than 4-point type and indecipherable

in the dim light. The waiter brought the water in about 10 minutes and took the wine order, but we had to ask him for menus. He returned with one (in Spanish only) for my wife and nothing written in mine. When the waiter did not return for another 10 minutes we decided to depart this wretched place and returned back to the Westin. We had a wonderful meal there at Arricifes. I would suggest the manager at Pitahayas learn a few things from his colleague at the Westin.

Mixed feelings

We reserved here for my birthday. The atmosphere is really lovely, in a huge palapa looking out to the sea. Because it is open apparently there are not any rules related to smoking and we had people at the table next to us smoking. There were ashtrays on all the tables. The music was ok, not as sophisticated as I would have liked (I had hoped for soft jazz per your review, but the two man combo and their music struck me as more Las Vegas lounge

like). Service was absolutely lousy. Our waiter, who was very friendly, nonetheless kept getting distracted, so he would begin to open the wine and then walk away, or begin to pour the wine, and then walk away. We also sat a little too long without menus. We were there for about 2 1/2 hours when we felt 2 should have been maximum. Part of the problem was that when we did need something we couldn't see him anywhere to flag him down. For example, I had steak and lobster, and not only wasn't given a steak knife, I didn't even seem to have a serrated butter knife, so the steak was hard to cut. However, I had eaten what I wanted of my steak before I saw him again to ask for a better knife. Three of our group felt their meals (the sugar cane shrimp and the seafood trio) were outstanding. I loved my lobster with vanilla bean sauce but the steak was overdone, and overly smoky and strong tasting. An acquaintance ate there later in the week and said the same thing about the steak. The tortilla soup was great, and the desserts were great, as was the duck salad. The ceasar salads were overdressed and came in a tough parmesan basket. We ordered the same Mexican wines as we had ordered at The Restaurant at Las Ventanas and found them to be $20-30 per bottle less at Pitahayas. They say that formal resort wear is required but they apparently don't enforce that as some people came underdressed in jeans and were rewarded with a great table. Anyway, our impressions were definitely mixed.

Serious Pesos for the Atmosphere

A lovely setting overlooking the Sea of Cortez. Big south seas style thatched terrace with romantic lighting. But...be prepared to part with a serious number of Pesos for a meal that may look really delectible but won't live up to its initial impression. The wine list is good but really pricey. Too bad...because this place has real potential. Maybe they had to pay for their supposed 5 star rating and need to earn it back from us.
