Tucked into the cliffs of The Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal and stocked daily with bounty from local fishermen, El Farallon is the most sought after dinner location in Los Cabos. Meaning “a rock that comes out of the ocean”, El Farallon has become a hallmark of exquisite dining at our luxury resort. Situated overlooking The Pacific Ocean, where Chef Gustavo Pinet sets only the best selection of local catch on mounds of shaved ice. Our fish experts will guide your selection with an old-fashioned scale that weights each choice.
Carved out of the rock appears The Champagne Terrace with a selection of over 15 different champagnes ranging from Blanc de Blancs to Rose to Vintage Champagnes. All you and your guests need to do is decide how many and what measure of each one you want. Jhonatan Adame, our Wine Manager, and his team will be able to guide you through the process as well as help you learn about the champagne with a selection of imported cheeses and artisan salts.

Restaurant is beautiful with an absolute gorgeous view. The food was okay. Nothing special. I ordered red snapper it was very light and fluffy but no real taste. My husband had filet and shrimp it was pretty good. All in all I might come back but just for view.

This was the worst dinner we have ever had in cabo in the last 30 years. It was a joke. Both of us had the runs the next morning. It was nearly $ 400 . Save yourself and don’t go

El Farallon was more than we expected. The views, the clientele, the wait staff - you name it, it was wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you are in Cabo San Lucas this is a MUST VISIT RESTAURANT. I thought Mona Lisa was spectacular, and it is. However, El Farallon is in a class of its own.

Everything was just perfect. Plates were generous, service was amazing and scenery was to dream about. Alcool is quite expensive but food is way more than reasonable. My boyfriend is allergic to seafood and they arrange a special menu for him that was as delicious as mine.

The view is breathtaking. I would love to go there and sit on the viewing chairs and drink all night. The food was not good by normal standards, but especially not good at the price charged. Most dishes lacking salt. Waldorf salad type was meh. "Tortilla soup" was a bland tomato soup essentially. One fish entree cooked to much. Other was flavorless, but fish was impeccable. I left thinking "This is simply poorly made hotel food at astronomical prices." However, management did remove the items from our bill that were not enjoyed, which was not requested or expected but due to our personal feedback and their attention to try and correct. I would return only for the view.

Extremely expensive, inedible food. Waiter charged us $345 for a bottle of wine we did not request, drink, or even look at. We picked and drank a $150 bottle. He claims a sommelier came and recommended the expensive bottle. We knew the wine we wanted and didn’t even know there was a somm on property. Extremely horrible meal but an absolutely ridiculous ending to our night. We also waited two hours between waiting in the drink area and getting our food. Never once complained, but while I’m being honest I thought I’d mention it. I expected way more from WA. We even debated staying there instead of the Montage and we are SO thankful we’re not spending eight nights there. Cabo has so many good restaurants. The McDonalds downtown would be better than El Farallon. I’d however recommend Arbol, NOBU or Mezcal at the Montage.

The ambience is incredible but the food did not meet our expectations. After having gone to other wonderful restaurants like Acre and Manta, this was a big disappointment. We enjoyed the breathtaking view and welcoming champagne bar, but could have skipped the mediocre meal. I recommend that the chef re-examine the menu and create a more contemporary experience for guests. The servers appeared disinterested as if they were just going through the motions. There was no connection whatsoever nor attempt to make it a personal experience. And the churros birthday dessert is a joke. We were advised by a friend in the restaurant biz that we should skip El Farallon, and, moving forward, we certainly will.

The dining experience at El Farallon is world class — I would recommend it to all my friends who would like to enjoy a blissful night along the ocean cliffs, with serene views of the stars at night. The sound of the waves crashing into the rocks adds to the romantic ambiance of the place. I suggest the jumbo shrimp, steak, and lobster, these options were cooked to perfection. The dining experience also comes with three additional courses, so be sure to come with a healthy appetite.

I was very excited to introduce my friends to this very special restaurant last night. We arrived and were escorted to our table. The service was very spotty and inconsistent. The appetizers were very mediocre at best. We ordered steak, prawns, lobster and small portions of each of the sides.
After an extensive wait the food arrived. There was no steak at all. The lobster was poorly cooked and the sides were awful. Needless to say, I was completely embarrassed after talking this restaurant up. Paying $372 dollars for a very average dinner is infuriating. Needless to say, I won’t be back!

Visiting Cabo for our BabyMoon and we Took a 45 minute cab ride. The place is gorgeous. We loved the experience. The food was delicious! Menu changes daily. The ramen soup wasn’t a favorite, but the Octopus tacos, Lobster tail, Asparagus, and Baked potato were all worth the drive! It’s a must if you are in Cabo. The Waldorf is stunning!

So much potential it has with a great location. Great spot to eat with scenary perfect. Bit disappointed with the food. Had way better food in other spots in Cabo. Need more of authentic mexican food with maybe some entertaining bartenders with skills light up the mood or waiters to light up food with fire. Some entertainment is missing to capture the attention. Look up toca madera in Scottsdale az for ideas
