Manta at The Cape a Thompson Hotel
Our first time visiting Cabo and, having been to Enrique’s Pujol and Eno in Mexico City, I knew we had to come here. We were a party of 5 and all did the 5 course tasting and had a cocktail. Luis, our main server, and his assistant Antonio were very welcoming and helpful in making our selections and ensuring that our experience was fantastic. The food and cocktails were great, the music in the background perfect, and the views incredible. Would definitely come here again thanks to the great food, service, and ambiance! Big thanks to the Chef, Luis, and Antonio for making our last dinner in Cabo one to remember!!
The staff is top notch, we are very spoiled after eating at great resturants in our travels and home in dallas. The food is gorgeously plated, only lacking a little nuance to make it extraordinary. best dishes- sashimi and tres leches dessert, could do without the ramen and octopus (ordered die to review popularity). Hands down the service is 5 star and without being pretentious. We stayed at the cape, but if you're not its worth going for views alone.
The dinner was absolutely perfect! Our waiter, Michael Luis, recommended the 5 Course Tasting Menu to experience all the taste and flavors Cabo had to offer. My husband and I requested he select the courses and he paired everything beautifully. The sashimi was amazing and the grilled octopus was delicious. A definite place to go to for an unforgettable date night!
We celebrated our 25th anniversary. Leonel and Eduardo were attentive, polite and friendly servers with great recommendations. There is beautiful sunset view of the Arch. The grilled octopus appetizer was so tender and delicious. The cuisine is a unique blend of Peruvian and Japanese.
El mesero que nos atendió hizo que todo lo lindo del lugar se arruinara, se llamaba Manuel súper despota y cómo haciéndonos el favor, es demasiado caro para el sabor y porciones de los platillos. Por otro lado el
Lugar es divino
Beautiful views in an equally beautiful hotel. I would definitely recommend coming here or to the rooftop for a drink. I felt the food was overpriced and nothing special except for the wagyu beef which was very good. The service was ok but left us feeling underwhelmed. Generally a nice place to visit but there are other places that have amazing food, beautiful ambiance and excellent service.
One of the best meals I’ve ever had. Amazing cocktails. Incredible service with knowledgeable staff. Accommodating for gluten allergy even with tasting menu, which was an incredible value. Must get.
The staff is fabulous from servers to captain. Food is exquisite. Scenery is out of this world. Cannot be matched. Ask for Roberto, Leonel, or Rodolfo!
By far one of the best experiences I’ve had in years.
We came here for my dad’s 62nd birthday. The food, service and ambiance were out of this world.
Food was amazing
El lugar es maravilloso. La atención muy buena, solo que un poquito lenta. La comida es suprema. Pedimos el menú degustación. Muy rico todo. El costo es elevado. La calidad de los platos también.
We like the sunsets on the Cape, so this year we tried Manta over our regular go-to (Sunset Mona Lisa). It is such a beautiful venue, although I wished there was more seating outside. The huge window inside is fantastic, but if anyone complains about the sunset light being too much they close the curtains. We were served by Roberto, Michael and Leonardo - they were all exceptional! Roberto even commented he remembered our family from a previous job he had at our condos. This made us instantly feel like family!
The service is second to none. Our family did the tasting, which was phenomenal. Our son in law would have never ordered beets but it turned out to be one of his favorite. Be cautious-although we were told the serving comes with small portions, it's really just too much food for anyone. :) It is also very pricey. The food is amazing and the slow pace is fantastic, but I feel it is a bit overpriced. Next visit we won't do the tasting and will know what our favorites are!
Delicious food with a cool vibe. I would definitely return on my next trip to Cabo
Open Table reso helped - requested a view and got a window seat with a view out over the bay / arch area. Extremely quiet. Multiple / attentive waitpersons. Menu was a tad complicated for my liking. Huge variety which is nice, but I needed an explanation about probably half the items on the menu. Gluten-free options were available but each one seemed to require a level of negotiation and would come with caveats / creative options for alternate contents. Some straight gluten free options would be a great addition to the menu. Opted for the prix fixe where you can select five options. Good way to taste a lot of different flavors but the prix fixe portions were sometimes quite small - especially for the sashimi. Would recommend picking a couple favorite foods and going with the regular pricing / full size portions - reasonably sure that my five choices added up to a price that was pretty close to the prix fixe anyway. Overall though it was a quality / intimate and memorable dinner.
This is a fantastic restaurant, superb food and ambiance. Just be prepared for the high prices.
Very good!! would go again when returning to cabo,
We came back to Manta because the crab tacos they promised me they will have it and they didn’t. Another thing is that they don’t have a good red Mexican wine and I asked for my Local discount (they give me 15% off last time) but now they didn’t so overall the food was good the price is so expensive they make me came back with the promise of the crab tacos and overall it wasn’t the good experience that I was waiting for my family
Manta delivered on every level of an incredible dining experience. My daughter and I decided to have our wonderful waiter of course with the chef choose a five course selection each for us so that we could try the many wonderful dishes. I could say everything was perfect! I have to mention the Tres leches cake was the best we ever had! Many thanks to Leomario and Leonardo for making our dining an experience to remember.
Great Meroma Event
Excelente comida y servicio
The most overrated restaurant I’ve ever visited. The food and menu were confusing and somewhat ordinary. Worst of all was the the indifference and arrogance of the waiter. I have never felt less welcome or appreciated.
Everything was great the service the food the drinks the space and all the amenities that the restaurant offers very good place for a meeting, for business, casual or for date
Very nice experience at Manta. Table for two and we both chose an individual tasting. Nice presentations, with well developed flavors. The seafood dishes in particular were of note with incredibly fresh sashimi! The room is beautiful and the service was very nice and attentive. A bit of a disappointing hostess / FOH experience which detracted somewhat from the evening - but overall a goodie example of Mexican fusion / fine dining.
Beautiful view of lands end and awesome unique seafood dished
Great experience! Great service, especially from Manuel and Francisco, sommelier. Delicious food, but the soft shell crab tacos are beyond this world, amazing
Excelene comida y fantástico servicio, ambiente cómodo y sin sobresaltos, muy buena carta de vinos.
The wait staff is amazing, Marco and Mario. Francisco, wine sommelier was extremely helpful. Recommend the wine pairing as well as the tasting menu. By far, one of the most elegant restaurants and most professional staff in Cabo. View is spectacular.
Stunning setting, fantastic staff, and impeccable food. We will be going back next year.
Luis our waiter was fantastic!!!
It’s a beautiful space in a beautiful place. The staff is, as one would expect, welcoming and professional. The food is artfully prepared, cooked properly and very good. The prices are outrageous! $300 for two with wine, but not coffee or desert. It was very good, but it wasn’t THAT good.
Food was good. It was tough to understand the menu. I think they can simplify it. Everything tasted great. Service was phenomenal. View was great and watching surfers was entertaining.
The view and service were outstanding. We had the tasting menu and found the fish courses to be the absolute best. Avoid the chicken dish. NY Strip was good, but not remarkable. Sashimi and ceviche were terrific.
Delicious food!! Especially loved the mushroom ramen, gingery fried chicken and baos. Gorgeous view and every detail of the restaurant down to the place settings, glassware, and decor is well thought out. We will definitely come back.
El restaurante es lindo pero el sabor de los alimentos no es acorde al lugar, no me pareció rico, ademas las porciones son muy pequeñas. He ido a otros lugares de la misma categoría donde las porciones son bastas y el sabor especial, no es el caso de Manta.
Our server was very rude
Trying to sell us the most expensive plates on the me
This was the highlight of my trip to Cabo! We had a dinner with 8 people and it went flawlessly! Service was immaculate and the venue itself was beyond stunning! There was a wedding outside the restaurant so we caught fireworks literally right outside our window! You can see the Arches from the restaurant as well. The workers were so pleasant and nice!
This restaurant was sooo good that we went twice during our trip.
The beet ceviche was fantastic so was the catch of the day which in our case was a local farmed fish called totoaba (similar to halibut).
The service Wes great, and the manager Alejandro was great.
The view of the arch was beautiful. Try to go there at sunset and seat outside for a real treat.
Beautiful scenery and perfect place for sunset. Menu was too interesting for our group. I thought there may be just a catch of the day or specials but really limited menu. Highly recommend taking a look prior to dining. We are back at our hotel looking for dessert!
The food and service were implacable. The flavors were nicely balanced and food presentation well designed. I make it a point to eat at Manta on every Cabo visit.
