Most welcome diners who aren’t guests, although the more luxurious and exclusive properties typically require advance reservations.

The Bungalows Hotel

Why it made the list

Only breakfast is served, and only to guests. That meal alone, however, is enough to recommend this small off-the-beaten-path hotel. Guests gather on a stone patio centered around a colonial-style fountain, where they’re treated to a morning feast filled with omelets and frittatas, pancakes and waffles, plus strong coffee and freshly squeezed juices. Hugs from the staff are an added bonus.

Tropicana Inn

Why it made the list

Airy al fresco dining and sidewalk café culture come together at Tropicana, a restaurant mecca in downtown San José del Cabo for better than three decades. Outside, visitors can enjoy views of City Hall and other downtown attractions as they sip their cafés con leche. For dinner, make reservations in the charming, fresco painted dining room, where live entertainment accompanies fine Mexican cuisine four nights per week.

Hilton Los Cabos Beach & Golf Resort

Why it made the list

Hospitality leader Hilton doesn’t disappoint at its Los Cabos based property, particularly when it comes to dining. El Mesón offers a picturesque setting overlooking the Sea of Cortés, with plenty of bounty pulled from its fish-rich waters. The sea farm raised totoaba is delicious, as are the menu’s many Mexican specialty dishes. Poolside Vela, by contrast, excels with traditional Italian fare and romantic entertainment from local balladeers.

Casa Natalia

Why it made the list

Co-owner Loic Tenoux shows off his culinary prowess at on-site restaurants Mi Cocina and Baja Oyster Bar. Courtyard standout Mi Cocina is what Tenoux calls a “Euro-Mexican Bistro”, a fusion concept that produces delights like the ever-popular pairing of chicken and chocolate. Baja Oyster Bar premiered more recently, and as the name suggests, serves as a showcase for the fresh and abundant regional seafood.

Sheraton Hacienda del Mar Resort

Why it made the list

Chef Volker Romeike pioneered Pan-Pacific fusion cuisine in Los Cabos when he opened Pitahayas – named for a cactus fruit prized by the region’s indigenous inhabitants – in 1995 at what was then a Hyatt property. It’s now part of Sheraton Grand’s collection of restaurants at Hacienda del Mar, joined by traditional Mexican culinary specialist Girasoles de la Hacienda, fine dining destination De Cortez, and other excellent on-site eateries.

One&Only Palmilla

Why it made the list

Benchmark ultra-luxury property One&Only Palmilla can lay claim to the most impressive pair of chefs in Jean-Georges Vongerichten and Larbi Dahrouch. Vongerichten’s SEARED is the premier steakhouse in Los Cabos, with choice-cut offerings from Kobe and Wagyu to aged rib-eyes and tenderloins. But Dahrouch, who apprenticed under celebrated French chef Jean-Louis Palladin, provides the resort’s signature dining experience at Agua by Larbi, pairing romantic seaside ambiance with unique “Mexiterranean” cuisine.

The Resort at Pedregal

Why it made the list

El Farallón is as romantic a restaurant as one could hope to find, set cliffside above crashing Pacific Ocean waves, with a boutique Champagne Terrace for pre- or postprandial sipping. Market style seafood heads the bill of fare at El Farallón, whereas The Resort’s signature restaurant, Don Manuel’s, impresses with its open kitchen and traditional Mexican specialty dishes. The breakfast buffet is a perennial favorite, but the highlight is dinner, when chef Gustavo Pinet creates a custom menu based on the availability of fresh regional ingredients.
