El Farallon Review
Atop a bluff in the Capella Pedregal hotel, El Farallon provides one of the most breathtaking vantage points from which to have a meal in Cabo San Lucas. Chef Marco Bustamante presents a seafood-heavy menu with a "fresh fish market" displaying the catch of the day. Customize your dish from an array of fish and meats—from yellowtail, parrot fish, spiny lobster, steak, chops, and sea bass to the irresistible local chocolate clams. All dishes come with a tasting of the day's three appetizers, which can include anything from tuna ceviche to crab-and-chipotle soup, as well as two sides that range from asparagus to grilled corn to cilantro-infused rice. Fish and meats are simply prepared on a flat grill with fine herbs and a drop of butter. They're so well executed that you may forego the accompanying sauces. It's challenging, but save room for desserts like Mexican doughnuts, then digest over an after-dinner drink while you ogle the view.
