The service was not attentive and we had to ask for everything, wine, water....all of it. There was also a very drunk man that was allowed to disrupt those dining in the restaurant for 1 hour before being asked to leave. Good food and flavors, but service was not matched to decor and expectation.
Beautiful location and ambience at this beachside, luxe-casual spot with great attention to detail on the fit out. Saw some reviews carping about prices and service - our experience was flawless and charming service and pricing not out of line with anywhere else at this standard and in such a privileged location. Some dishes were a bit salty for our palates, but having said that others were amongst the best we’ve experienced. We also tried Mako in the same resort and this place beat it hands down.
I’ve eaten at La Deriva two other times with excellent experiences unfortunately my most recent experience was not the same. The service was horrible... the wait staff (other than the sommelier) were non-attentive. They offer a pasta carbonara which is always fantastic. The waiter stated it was available but then came back later to tell us they didn’t have the pork to put in it. Offered to make it into cacio di pepe... which was fine... but it came out very dry. To make matters worse, there was a table with an obnoxious woman (obviously not the restaurant’s doing) with a screeching voice that was like fingernails on a chalkboard.
We had brought friends and totally boasted about La Deriva... but this time they missed the mark. Will give the restaurant a “do over” some other time... but probably not this trip.
favorite place in Cabo.
Todo muy rico!!! El servicio un poco lento pero muy amables los meseros.
Excelente comida y ambiente.
Every item we ordered was divine. Kampachi crudo starter and watermelon salad, hubby had prawns and I had smoked rib tacos—yum! Kids loved their burgers. Oh and churros y chocolate was delish!!! We sat outside by the fountain and enjoyed every minute of it!
Been to la deriva many times. Things have changed. Many items on menu unavailable and quality was poor. My wife ordered the octopus appetizer that was so overcooked you couldn’t eat. My pasta was no better than out if a box at home. Service was just ok.
Our waiter was horrible. We had to ask three times for water, blankets and a menu. He literally disappeared for ten minutes while our glasses sat empty, he was busy chatting up another table. We complained to the manager and got the standard apologies but nothing improved though the balance of our visit. We will not go back.
Table lighting is unacceptable. Couldn’t even see to read the menu. When we asked for a flashlight we were given one with low battery and that was only marginally better than nothing. Wound up using the phone flashlight to see the meal. When the bill was presented it included an extra entree. Cross this place off our list.
The restaurant is absolutely stunning and the bartender was great. The service at the table was not great. We had to ask for menus, water, and waited 30 minutes before getting our wine (and that was after getting the manager). The service got better after we shared our experience with the manger.
Came here on Thanksgiving 2019. Everything was great including the specials for the holiday. I would recommend this place if you’re staying at the resort for Thanksgiving.
Food was underwhelming. Everything over seasoned (especially the steaks) and it took a crazy amount of time to come out, despite the restaurant being fairly empty.
We had a below average experience at la deriva. We were with our two children and the dinner took forever. We had to ask for menus, ask for bread, and ask for
Wild boar equal to what I ate in Tuscany. Excellent gnocchi.
Food and service were excellent.
The food and general dining experience was fantastic. May be the best meal and wine pairing we had during the week we were there. Our waiter was great once we were seated. However, though the bar was almost empty, the service was slow before we were seated. The resort is pretty but not really our first choice design wise. It was very quiet and for that reason, lacked some of the authenticity and energetic ambience that our long-time destination, Hacienda Del Mar and the restaurants there and downtown have. We had three young children between 2 and 5 with us and they were treated well. They loved the beach and mini-golf course and we loved that they were able to play without us worrying about being a disturbance. Overall, I think we'll certainly come back to La Deriva and will probably also explore Solaz and other restaurants on the property in the future.
One of the very best dining experiences in Los Cabos.
Excellent as always.
We’ll be back again soon.
Ate outdoors 2nd week of September, there has been no rains for awhile and was not humid. There was 4 flies buzzing relentlessly around my chicken when my wife said "they should have ceiling fans". Flies ruined the meal but not the occasion.
We started with the mussels. Really delicious. We’re big fans of mussels. We try them every where we go. This is on the top 5, even better than some we’ve had in France... Then we ordered the gnocchi and the sea bass special.
Both outstanding. Personally I’m not a big fan of gnocchi but at La Deriva I was truly impressed.
The service was great. But we’re staying at Solaz. And the service has been really incredible all around.
Although it wasn’t the worst, it definitely wasn’t the best. We expected more from the fine dining restaurant at the Solaz resort. The servers were polite but the service was not what you expect from a higher end restaurant. The food was just ok. Considering the price point, this restaurant was disappointing.
Miguel was awesome. Knowledgeable and professional
Given the location along a remote part of the Cabo coast, part of the Solaz property, I was pretty impressed that they pulled off this excellent Italian restaurant. The menu was very well selected, the food was well-prepared and flavorful, cooked properly, and the service was the best I had in Cabo. The Location was really breath-taking though. I sat right on the edge of the restaurant with a front-row view of the water and fireworks just off the water - really, really, quite beautiful. A few minor fixes related to the quality of ingredients - the burrata was technically burrata and I'm not sure where it was from, but I'm used to the Italian-sourced burrata with a creamy interior and light, fleshy case - this burrata was almost a curd-type interior with a thicker case, which I've had before but would not be my first choice. The beef tagliata was delicious and cooked perfectly, though the beef itself was a bit tough and again, I'm not sure where it came from and I didn't ask the origin. I would definitely go back and I do recommend this restaurant, it was a very, very nice evening.
Comida, lugar y servicio excelentes.
Definitivamente volvería de estar de regreso a Los Cabos.
Best pasta carbonara in town!! Great wine; warm an careful service.
Es una excelente opción para comer en pareja o para cena de negocios
DELICIOSA COMIDA Y UN SERVICIO EXCELENTE! BONITA EXPERIENCIA
Very beautiful dining experience. Jose and Daniel were our tag team servers who both did an excellent job
Gorgeous views, service was spotty. A lot of people but most weren't sure what to do. Food was pretty mediocre for the price but very nice area.
Buen Servicio, los meseros muy amables y en todo momento explicandonos los platillos y entradas que pedimos, definitavmente volveremos
Super recomendado, muy bueno todo lo q pedimos, el servicio excelente, la vista del lugar increíble, sin duda volveremos a ir 👍🏻
Food was the worst we had all week. Los Cabo’s has so many good restaurants, this isn’t one of them. Service mediocre. Why they serve toasted bread when their seafood restaurant serves amazing bread and butter is beyond me. Chicken was dry. My husbands clam pasta was ok. Salad was just a bunch of rabbit lettuce drained in dressing. Too much money. Beautiful view and setting.
The lobster Mac and cheese is to die for. Maybe it’s the richness of the dish. The presentation was great!
Food was outstanding. Service was wonderful and the ambience was amazing. Highly recommended.
We loved this place! The atmosphere was great, the views were amazing, the food was incredible and our waiter Edmund tied it all together with world class service.
The service was unacceptable. Very disappointed.
We had a table on the deck overlooking the water. The location is stunning and the food is to match. We had the Burrata and Tagliere starters. They were fresh and full of flavor. Our mains were lobster ravioli and fire roasted chicken with lemons. I recommend La Deriva to anyone looking for fresh and flavorful Italian cusine. We loved it and we will be going back!
For a restaurant that holds itself out as "upscale dining" the service and professionalism seemed to lacking.
Our waiter was non-existent after the food was delivered. For the price the food was nothing special.
We come to Cabo multiple times a year and are always trying new restaurants to add to our list. La Deriva will not make the cut.
