Description: Cocina del Mar is known for its exquisite variety of fresh fish and seafood specialties. It utilizes only the freshest possible ingredients offered by La Baja, offering a light, simple, casual and progressive menu. We would call Baja, coastal, seafood restaurant concept. Is the best place for guests, owners and local visitors to celebrate life, love and friendship in a unique seating that maximizes views of the Sea of Cortez. Cocina del Mar embodies the simplicity and elegance of natural & fresh dining, the restaurant focuses on the pure essence of taste, with a genuine passion for providing an opportunity to slow down and indulge in a dining experience carefully crafted for the mind, body, and soul. Featuring local fare presented in a vibrant ─ bare style, such as tuna crudo ─ jicama taquitos or perfectly ripe heirloom tomatoes with tomatillo salsa. Along the menu a selection of local, seasonal, sustainable and organic ingredients; such as simple grilled grouper with a ripe-raw tomato sauce or small progressive bites offered directly at the table, create a freshly and wholesome concept. CDM cuisine is based on the product of the coast of Baja California, where Cortez Sea local ingredients are the stars along with seasonal fresh organic vegetables from Cabo’s near small towns. This Cuisine is highly inspired by Mexican flavors. A menu inspired in seasonal and locally grown ingredients full of Mexican flavors with some Mediterranean hints. A selection of appetizers from an Abalone with green tomatillo sauce, to fresh oysters with passion fruit ─ light spicy cocktail sauce. The Chef highlights the wide selection of La Baja ingredients, resulting dishes such as roasted octopus with peppers, avocado and toasted white corn or al pastor totoaba with annatto seed sauce and grilled pineapple. Cocina del Mar is already known for showing a real empathy with those vegetarian trend healthy eaters who can enjoy an oven beet salad with hibiscus vinaigrette or a pan roasted eggplant with pico de gallo and cilantro.

Breakfast can be either buffet or a la carte, and both are excellent choices. The huevos rancheros was a winner.

We went here with a family group of six to celebrate a special birthday. My wife had made the surprise reservation. We started with a couple of drinks at the bar, where we sat at the fire pit and enjoyed the ocean view. Our table was set out on the rocky point surrounded by the ocean below. The crashing waves and the fabulous, ever changing colours of the sunset added to the magic of the occasion. We ordered mostly seafood, which was good, but came in relatively small portions. This restaurant is very expensive, but the special setting merits the experience and is well worth it. Getting there from San Jose del Cabo was a $250 return taxi trip. Recommended for a romantic dinner or a memorable family event!

Come here for the view! An incredible vista and outdoor restaurant with the waves crashing below....can't beat that! The food was good but not exceptional, which one expects at an Auberge restaurant. And, very expensive! Service was excellent.
