Don Manuel's - The Resort at Pedregal
One of the greatest atmospheres you can experience anywhere on the globe and the service is great, unfortunately the food is slop and the wine is ridiculously overpriced.
We had a wonderful experience dining here...the setting is spectacular and the food was amazing. We definitely recommend that you try it.
One of the most memorable meals of our vacations anywhere in the world. The ambiance, the music, the service and the food were completely special and thoughtful.
The best ambiance, delicious food and impeccable service! The live music was lovely!
The best food and service!
Located right next to the ocean, so the ambiance and environment is stellar. We ordered the Oaxaca cheese with chorizo, which was really good (it's just melted cheese and meat, of course it's good). We ordered some drinks, like the special margarita our waiter recommended. It was really fruity and sweet, which I enjoyed. For mains, we got three kinds of tacos: lobster, sea bass, and skirt steak. My favorite by far was the lobster tacos, the orange sauce on it was just amazing. The sea bass was also really good too. Each taco plate came with 3 tacos and some salad, about$25 to $30 USD per plate.
Service and food top of the line
Outstanding food and service in a gorgeous location.
My wife and I always enjoy the dining experience in such a beautiful location.
Prior to dinner, we each ordered a glass of champagne. The bottle presented had only two glasses left. We experienced a lesser than quality experience with few “bobbles” to experience the quality. Our server was more than happy to open a new bottle. A guest joined us that had previously had ordered two glasses. I then insisted on paying for her two glasses plus our 2 glasses, but was quietly reserved when our bill totaled $150 for 4 glasses of wine? I did not want to call attention to the bill, for we were going in for dining.
However, my wife’s meal was great, while my steak was tough while being cooked to the correct temperature? I have never had a steak quite like that previously. Had not have been for our guest, I would have sent it back.
Our service team were very attentive.
Wonderful restaurant. The food and service were both excellent. I had the sea bass crusted with pork rinds and let me tell you, it was one of the best things I’ve ever eaten. If you get the opportunity, you must try Don Manuel’s!
Great ambiance, great music, great food, great service, awesome desserts, love the menus. Highlight of the trip. Take the golf cart through the mountain.
Second time dining at Don Manuel's Excellent fish and steak. Apps were awesome. A must choice when in Cabo.
Had dinner for two here as we couldn’t get into El Farallon (completely booked during Christmas week except for very late after 9pm seatings). Don Manuel has a lovely setting and very attentive professional service. Food was mostly competent except for a very tough roast chicken dish my wife couldn’t eat. We think the chicken wasn’t sufficiently de-frosted. It was so tough that she had to mention it to the waiter (it takes a lot for us to point out an egregiously poor dish). The waiter says “sorry about that ; I will inform the kitchen” so that no future guest would encounter the same thing, I guess. Apart from the “sorry”, there was zero offer to change the dish or remove it from the bill. It wasn’t removed. We made the best of it by enjoying the lovely live music at the restaurant.
Excellent food and good pricing. Beautiful ambience.
One of our absolute favorite restaurants! The view, service and food are impeccable! The staff is knowledgeable and attentive and food is beautiful and delicious! A Cabo must!
It was Christmas dinner and I just want to say how great the meal was but also amazing the staff is and they have to work on Christmas which I’m so grateful for but also they shouldn’t have to and yet despite this the staff here is always amazing. Thank you so much
I often don't write reviews, but must say it was very disappointing to have an $800+ dinner (4 adults/1 young child with light drinking) with such poor service. We had gaps of 1 hour between food, plates sitting on the table until the next food arrived, very long drink wait times. My 7 year old had soup and tacos ($65) but needed to remind the waiter about the tacos. My friend waited more than 30 minutes for his first cocktail. Beautiful spot but terrible experience that the Waldorf Astoria should be ashamed of putting their brand on.
First let me say the service at the resort and Don Manuel’s was top notch and second to none. The ambiance and setting was and is great. The food was really good but there was room for improvement like in most cases. I would highly recommend for a special occasion but for most it would be to pricey to put on there go to list for that regular Saturday night out. Unfortunately that has become the case at many restaurants, especially at top destinations like Cabo in the USA, Canada, México. We spent around 420.00 dollars for 2 drinks, 2 Christmas Eve fixed 4 course meals, water, 15 percent service charge, and wine service that was 50.00 since we brought our own bottle. They had our wine on their list but not the exact year, one a year older and one a year younger and they ranged in price from 300.00 - 420.00. This was for a medium range California Cabernet. They did also charge a water service fee it seemed. They served us I believe Evian water, one bottle and they charged 15 dollars. The restaurant in my opinion should offer free filtered house water at no charge.
We loved our lunch at Don Manuel's. Good food and exceptional service.
Setting, service and food were all amazing. Desserts are worth saving room.
WE LOVE DON MANUEL's! This is one of our top 3 restaurants in Cabo. Great menu, fantastic service and an amazing setting. We would go every day, if we had time....
Very outstanding dining experience. Unfortunately, they had construction work ongoing. Furthermore, I expected a better view of the sunset, besides this I was more than satisfied.
We celebrated our 36th wedding anniversary! The staff was amazing! Everything was perfect! From the rose petal trail to our table overlooking the pool and ocean, to the wine, freshly made breads, ambiance, delicious dessert with fireworks. Everything was perfect! Thank you!!!
Beautiful setting and excellent food and service! Will go again on my next visit to Cabo!!
Food was amazing; best entrees we had in Cabo.
However, there was a shady attempt made by waitstaff in not automatically returning change at the end when the check came. And while 20% or 25% percent could have been justifiable... 40% was a lot to assume as a tip.
I had a lovely dinner here with my cousin. The service was 5 star from the beginning and the decor was nice and sharp, as all things related to the Waldorf Astoria. The food and hospitality was phenomenal!
As a Mexican, I appreciated the modern twist of traditional dishes. I also had the best decaf almond milk later here with my dessert! I’ll be back next time I’m in Cabo!
Beautiful venue. Price is extraordinary. Good value but expensive. Staff made no mention of wife’s Birthday although I mentioned it on the reservation. We’ll be back.
As usual they were right on que.
Not inexpensive, but always outstanding and worth the visit.
Got the tasting menu and it was terrific. Excellent wait staff.
Our second visit. This time we feasted on appetizers only. All were excellent. Also left room for a great dessert.
We celebrated a birthday and wanted a fabulous experience. Could not have been better !!! We started with drinks in the bar and took a tour of the restaurant and wine cellar - very cool. The service was excellent. We wanted a non-rushed experience and were treated to outstanding service, outstanding food, outstanding drinks and overall one of the best (if not the best) dining I have ever had. Everyone loved the food and the ability to modify the plates to meet our taste preferences. We truly appreciated the birthday celebration from the musicians and servers. It could not have been better.
For that extra special occasion - we would recommend Don Manuel's very highly.
Amazing service the restaurant in the resort and it’s amazing resort as well. The servers are very experienced!!
Our dinner was amazing, the staff was incredible. We cannot say enough about the ambiance, truly a magical evening. The margaritas are perfection.
We are never disappointed on the service and food at Don Manuel’s. They made us feel special every time. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion.
This is an excellent restaurant with wonderful service, ambience and food. In addition, the live music was great!
Outstanding service, wonderful staff.
Fabulous all the way around. Atmosphere, service, views, food. Simply the best!
We absolutely love Don Manuel’s and make it a point to come here every time we are in Cabo. The service is impeccable and the food is divine. How could you possibly improve on the ambiance? You are looking out at the Pacific Ocean and hearing the waves crash on the shore while there is live, unobtrusive music in the background. This is a very special place.
My wife and I enjoyed a spectacular dinner Wednesday JULY 17 .. FOLKS, seriously!!! EVERYTHING was literally PERFECT .. the drinks, the appetizers (Blue Fin Tuna Tartare + “Tarasca” Bean Soup with Black Truffle), the main dishes (Roasted Totoaba, “Veracruzana” + Catch of the Day “Zarandeado”), and desert! Professionally prepared and flavorful. 110% outstanding experience …… HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Such a great experience!
