Manta at The Cape a Thompson Hotel
Amazing view! Amazing food! Amazing cocktails! Amazing service! We will visit every time we are visiting Cabo! Plan to arrive an hour before sunset! We went at 5:00pm - had “The Cape“ cocktail at the hotel bar, we watched the surfers and took in the incredible view! Then we went to the patio at The Manta at 5:30! We were the first to arrive so the staff captured amazing photos of us as the sun set! We both opted for the 5 course tasting option! We will always do this! Every entree was very good! The pics don’t do it justice! The soft shell crab taco, sashimi, sweet potato mole and tres leches cake were some of our favorites! The cake was very different from any we have tried before! The mole is made with 23 ingredients and served with corn tortillas! They also gave us complimentary Mezcal Sherbet to cleanse our palette! So tasty! This is definitely one of our favorite restaurants in Cabo! Must visit!
Average good but prices overrated
Food and service were great!
Manta was amazing. Leonardo our server was 5 stars. He explain the whole menu with lots of knowledge. My wife and I celebrated our 9 yr anniversary and it was just perfect great staff great food great ambiance just perfect..I been to puyol and manta. Love Enrique olveras food. Thank you Manta
Best meal we have ever experienced in Cabo. The service was impeccable, the ceviche to die for, fish tacos... wow, the views, beautiful!
Superb food, service and the best view in Cabo!
We have been visiting this restaurant for a few years. Unfortunately, this time did not live up to our experiences of times past. The menu hasn't changed much but the food has diminished in flavor. The restaurant was not busy on a Friday night but it took forever to get our drinks and our meals. We apparently had two servers but had to refill our own water.
We aren't sure if we will revisit. Too many other places that serve food at that level for half the price.
We assembled a tasting menu from their a la carte menu: sashimi, beet ceviche, mushroom ramen and wagyu beef yakitori. Sashimi was unevenly cut and full of sinew. Accompanying sauces made no sense. Beets came in huge chunks with no complementary flavors. Ramen was okay but broth was murky and grainy. Beef was an expensive disaster. Told to cook thin slices on hibachi grill for 20 seconds on one side 10 seconds on the other left it still raw and flavorless. Served with a pineapple purée and corn tortillas. Horrible. The restaurant did offer an alternative dish but we just wanted to leave. We paid the bill including the wagyu and left. Great cocktails before dinner with barman Ivan
Original, interesting, beautiful, and most of all delicious food with a customer friendly dining format, all located within a gorgeous space. What's not to love?
Amazing family style tasting menu with creative dishes. The seafood was especially fresh and delicious!
Increbile ambiance! Wait staff was very helpful and knowledgeable, attentive but intrusive. Excellent food quality and variety. Our first experience with Manta, but certainly won’t be the last.
The atmosphere was good the beer was beautiful however the food had no rhyme to reason the menu look like somebody just put it together five minutes before they decided to open the food needs a lot of work we eat in a lot of places in Cabo and that didn’t even scratch the surface of being good
Everything was perfect! Highly recommend!!
Wonderful atmosphere ..... They want you to order the big 5 course menu at $95.00 per person. When you tell them that you can’t eat all that food and want to order off the menu that is when the service levels went downhill to a very disappointing evening
Beautiful restaurant overlooking the Pacific Ocean, floor to ceiling windows! Group of 4 sat outside at sunset, ordered multiple dishes, octopus and blue fin tuna stood out! Drinks were delicious! Would recommend as a fantastic place in Cabo!
Absolutely lovely experience. The location is stunning and the food amazing. The wait staff was patient and helpful in explaining the unique options. The black miso sea bass tacos were superb. A extremely extensive wine list! Make sure you sit outside. I only wish we had gone before dark so we could have enjoyed the view more.
The ambiance and decor at Manta is 10/10 and the service is incredible. It is extremely expensive for what you get. The food was beautifully plated but each dish seemed to be missing a element to give it that extreme satisfaction.
Awesome place... the view beyond reproach
Care with food issues and dietary needs. The most amazing young chef !
Food was fresh, beautiful and excellently prepared! Service was outstanding.

Beautiful outside table with EXCELLENT customer service. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Cabo
Great service from Mauricio, great view!!
Absolutely breathtaking view from the restaurant. Staff was attentive and made great recommendations on food. Almost tapas style dishes so we tried 8 different things, ALL of which surpassed my expectations. The food tasted even better than it looked! Highly recommend this place and will definitely be back next time in Cabo
An incredible surprise. Each course (and yes, the 5-course tasting menu is a must) was truly a culinary surprise. Each bite unique and on point. Our servers Micheal and Luis were amazing. From their recommendations, explanation of each course as it was set, and the personal touches of hospitality- we were truly grateful for such an amazing night!
For a girl who never eats at the same place twice when traveling - Manta would be the one to break that rule in two.
Exceptional from start to finish. Food is to die for, presentation fabulous, views amazing and service off the charts in terms of perfection. If you have one spot to treat yourself in CABO for an all out, just incredible meal from every aspect this is it.
Amazing food! Great service! 10/10 would recommend
La comida deliciosa! La mejor atención y servicio por parte de Mario y Antonio!
Best restaurant in Cabo San Lucas. Ate at another renowned Cabo restaurant the following night and the level of cooking at Manta was far superior. It's been a while since I've been to Cosme, but we enjoyed our meal at Manta more.
Excelente servicio de parte de la gente que trabaja ahí, y la comida deliciosa.
Magnífica experiencia ...
Deliciosa cena y precioso Hotel
Amazing staff! Great menu and a wonderful wine list. I highly recommend manta if your in Cabo
Stunning view, incredible service and spectacular food!
Non hotel guests, please pay attention;
I made reservations here almost in a month in advance for my boyfriends birthday dinner. This is the 2nd time they’ve done this to us so I will not be returning here. I had reservations for 2 and made specific requests. I arrived to our reservations 30 minutes in advance to make sure what happened to us didn’t- but of course once again it did. When checking in with the hostess, she asked me several questions including if I was a hotel guest. She asked so many questions that I asked her if she couldn’t see my reservations, but she said she saw them. When she didn’t take the turn to go outside, I stopped and asked her why we weren’t going outside. She told me that outside was completely booked. I then had told her I specifically requested seats almost a month ago and even came 30 minutes- I even told her we can wait up to an hour to sit outside. She once again said no that she was booked. She then decided to sit us at a table in the middle of the room where my view was of the front of the restaurant lol and my boyfriend had a view of a closed curtain lol. Within 5 minutes, a family is getting seated of 4 and the mother stopped and told the same hostess they aren’t sitting inside when she requested outside. The hostess without question, turned around and headed outside. I later found out from someone who worked their that group were hotel guests. So short story- I decided for the one night of the year to celebrate my boyfriends birthday there and they ruined it with their customer service to non hotel guests. They’ll sit you in the kitchen if they could. Go to Sunset Mona Lisa where this would never happen as they never ask the million questions before seating you. They were unfortunately closed so I chose my 2nd best which I will never return. Twice this has happened to me. Twice.
Leonel, Rodolfo and Roberto were all very professional and the hospitality was above and beyond anything in Cabo. Wonderful food and an ambiance which is hard to beat. Overall, superb and worth a visit!
