THis is the second time we tried this restaurant. Service is excellent and the food quality is very nice. However the prices simply make no sense - unless you factor in that the guests are very rich people (including actors) from LA. There are a number of restaurants with equal or better quality (inlcuding menu inventiveness) that are expensive but... More

We've been to some amazing restaurants in Cabo, but this one tops our list! We went early so we could explore and we were not disappointed. Huge complex with lots of surprises and hideaways and each one was more amazing than the next. Infinity pool beside the bar, crazy views and unique drinks. Moved onto dinner...wine over priced, meals pricey... More

While breakfast here is delicious, the ambiance at night is incredible. Our reservations were at sunset at an outdoor table. The sky and water looked bathed in a fiery pink. Gorgeous. Because the nights are chilly, outdoor heaters kept us cozy. We both had seafood which was delicious. Our server made recommendations that were spot on. He determined if we... More

We're staying at The One&Only so good service is expected. However, our server at Agua was really an outstanding young man. He was so attentive and charming and proactive.
