Casiano's Review

"No menu, no rules" is the way chef Casiano Reyes describes the "spontaneous cuisine" dining experience at this gem located in a tranquil and elegant new location. If you're open-minded and adventurous, you'll relish this creative spot where a changing palette of local ingredients inform a free-form menu. Once you're seated in the bi-level, indoor-outdoor space, your waiter will offer a list of the day's ingredients, which can include anything from goat cheese, heirloom tomatoes, and lobster, to scallops, fillet of beef, and foie gras. Inform the kitchen of your preferences, and the talented, Oaxacan-born Reyes will whip up a tasting menu to delight your senses. Standouts include the seasonal Mexican specialty chiles en nogada, scallops with cauliflower and capers, and sea bass with lentils over sweet corn puree. Tasting menus and food–wine pairings are pricier, but worth it.

    One of my most memorable dining experiences....

    My husband and I are frequent travelers and love innovative dining experiences featuring quality food and service. Casiano's did not disappoint and now holds one of the top spots for my dining experiences. To begin, the staff is passionate about what happens at Casiano's and ensures the whole dining experience meets the patrons' needs. There are about three different staff attending the table at any given time, but you would never know it. Everything arrives seamlessly and is precisely timed for a fantastic presentation. More importantly, the food is exquisite. We chose the 5 course experience. Don't be put off by the first course portions when they arrive. You will be served the perfect amount of food to appreciate the variety you will be provided (many of the courses have three different offerings on one plate) and still leave full at the end of the night. It is clear that the chef uses only the freshest of ingredients that can be found at the time and uses creative techniques in putting them all together. My only disappointment was that the meal ended...but not before the chef came out to greet us because we enjoyed our meal so thoroughly. If you are in San Jose del Cabo or Cabos San Lucas....do NOT miss Casianos.

    Perfect for a couple or a food-loving group

    An exceptional dining experience. The "spontaneous cuisine" approach is great fun for adventurous diners. Unique, innovative, unlikely combinations that worked perfectly every time. Sommelier made great wine pairings. Service was professional, very attentive and friendly, but not intrusive. Preparation, presentation and quality were comparable to the very best restaurants in the U.S. These people seem to truly enjoy their craft, and it showed!
