Don Manuel's Restaurant Review

: Executive chef Marco Bustamante uses local organic ingredients to prepare the traditional Baja cuisine for the signature restaurant of Capella Pedregal. Don Manuel’s invites guests into its kitchen during the breakfast, lunch and dinner meals, in keeping with the feel of a traditional Mexican kitchen.

Finest Dining in Los Cabos

:D This was an incredible dining experience. We were treated to a private tour of the cocina, which was the most beautiful kitchen I have ever seen in a restaurant. It would be the envy of any chef. We were greeted by the executive chef, Marco Bustamante, who gave us information and answered questions about the menu, local produce and fish. I would happily have pulled up a chair and eaten my dinner right there. The meal was served on the terrace, where we had a view of Capella's beautiful outdoor gardens and pools. We listened to the sounds of the waves crashing on the beach and watched a gorgeous sunset over the Pacific. I had an incredibly tender, succulent filet of sole baked in a banana leaf, with a lemon, olive, caper and tomato sauce, and my companion had a fish stew that was superior to any French bouillabaisse I have ever tasted. After dinner we continued our tour with a visit to the wine "cellar" (actually above-ground) and the special room for tasting tequila and smoking cigars. We both tried Azul "sipping" tequilas and became instant fans. I just cannot praise this restaurant enough. It is reason enough to choose Cabo San Lucas as a vacation destination.
