As evening approaches, join us on the roof top terrace, an al fresco sky garden with sweeping views to downtown Cabo San Lucas and El Arco. Lush greenery, flowing waters and a dramatic sunken lounge with a contemporary fire pit create a relaxed, communal vibe. The bar and the beer garden are fueled by handcrafted cocktails and artisanal beers from throughout the local region.

If you can't afford to go to Sunset da Mona Lisa for a spectacular view, head straight to The Rooftop!!! Beautiful/setting and great food/drinks. And you'll still have $$ left to experience the rest of Cabo!!!

The prices are high but this place is GORGEOUS! The space and the views are spectacular. You will not be sorry you went. Even for one drink. It is super special. There is a reason it is named one of the 10 best rooftop bars in the world by Travel and Leisure.

Upscale tapas rooftop restaurant. Great view and ambiance. Live music after sunset. Food was good, highly recommend the pulpo taquitos and patatas bravas with pulpo. Tamarind wings were very good. Enjoyed the cocktails, view and dinner.

We always enjoy an evening here when we visit Los Cabos. I would like to alert management that the wrought iron “birdcage” chairs that we sat on last night left black streaks on both my husband’s and my light colored pants. Unfortunately, we did not discover the damage until we returned to our villa.
That being said, this is a fantastic venue for cocktails at sunset.

Our dinner and drinks at the Rooftop were phenomenal. Not only was the sunset view stunning but the service was impeccable. From being offered shawls to stay warm in the breeze to our waitress grabbing a vegetarian menu from the restaurant downstairs. Everything was exactly what we were hoping it would be. Highly recommend.

Great views of sunset and the arch. Good tapas, the goat cheese empanada was a big hit. Quesadilla was ok, boneless wings surprisingly very good. Expensive by Mexico standards, but you’re at The Cape so you’re really paying for the view.

Great views and music. Service was not very attentive but it’s a place you want to hang out and relax (and watch the sunset), so you shouldn’t be in a hurry anyway. Food was Hit or Miss. Popcorn shrimp was good, wontons were great, and we loved the octopus. The steak taco had great flavor but horrible pieces of meat with all fat and cartilage. Couldn’t eat it. A glass of wine costs 26-28 dollars! That’s ridiculous, and we come from San Francisco where we are used to high prices. Cocktails were good (cost about 16 bucks). I still will go back again and do recommend The Rooftop for the atmosphere, views, and music.

The Cape is a gorgeous hotel. Modern, sleek and stylish. Cape, please stop taking reservations for this space on Open Table as it’s a waste of time. Unfortunately we made a reservation for the rooftop before sunset and the hostess was unable to honor our reservation. There was a line as we entered and didn’t even speak to the hostess until ten minutes past our reservation time. This looks more like a first come first served type spot. Really disappointing as this was our last night in Cabo and we’d hoped to have cocktails at sunset at this beautiful spot. I wish we’d picked another spot for our last night. I’m a frequent Open Table user and gave never experienced this before.

Rooftop at the Cape was great. We were there when it was a bit chillier so be aware it can be a bit windy and cold but very nice. Food was delicious and service was great. They had a nice band playing but not too loud so you could have a conversation.

Please know going in they add a 15% service charge to your bill as a resort fee even though we weren’t staying at the hotel. Waitress said they gets split among all employees but any additional tip she gets to keep. So you are potentially looking at adding 15-35% to your bill depending on your generosity.

And last. I think this is probably a better spot for lunch and drinks in the afternoon so you can see the awesome sites from high above the beach.

Literally we’re out in the corner with no service for 20 minutes. Was told that I was late for my reservation when it took us 20 minutes to get up there because of their broken elevators. Host was extremely rude. The whole experience was awful. Also missed the sunset due to their elevator issues. Wouldn’t recommend to my worst enemy. Go to The Ledge instead.

Beautiful views from the rooftop and amazing service from Lupita! However, the seating was quite uncomfortable and the food was just average. We were there a few years ago and the food was much better and true tapas style. The whole place seems overrated except for Lupita’s service.

This is our third time at this restaurant. We love the food and the beautiful setting. We were disappointed this time in the service. It took over 20 minutes to receive our first drink and over 60 minutes for our appetizer and would have ordered a second round of drinks but was never asked. We also had to ask for our bill. We will however be back as we realize it was a busy night and felt the restaurant was understaffed.

Had the best seats in the house - corner of the balcony with unobstructed views. That said, every seat seemed great. Food and service also delicious. I'm glad we picked a seating time to catch the sunset. Hijghly recommend!

Had our son and his wife down for Christmas and wanted them to experience the magnificence that is The Rooftop at the Cape. The view is beyond belief and candidly beyond adjectives - Oswald provided exceptional service and the food and drinks were outstanding. It would be fantastic if it was just a bit less pricey so we could go more often but at the end of the day the setting is worth the price of admission. Everybody should experience The Rooftop at least once.
