Description: Tucked into the cliffs of The Resort at Pedregal, El Farallon is the best restaurant in Cabo San Lucas. Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, listen to the waves crash below while making your selection from the ocean-to-table menu featuring the daily bounty from local fishermen. Executive Chef Gustavo Pinet offers only the best selection of the local catch on shaved ice. Our culinary experts will guide your selection with an old-fashioned scale that weighs each choice and assist with side dish pairings.

My wife and I went to El Farallon for our 30th Anniversary dinner. We looked at many reviews and knew we better come prepared with a small mortgage to have the night we wanted.
I think previous reviews were pretty accurate, the food was very good, we had the surf and turf for $138 ea. and one serving was enough to feed us both honestly, we brought some back to our room. The courses leading up to the main were awesome! Carrot soup, sea bass skewers, and several other delicious treats.
The lobster was done perfectly as was the steak. As one reviewer mentioned your food will cool fast since your sitting on the edge of the Pacific Ocean, but it didn't detract from the meal.
They have a huge wine selection and some typical cabo prices for the same. We chose a wine we know well from back home, L'Ecole 2013 Cab Sauv. $20 at home, here...$155.

The bottom line is you go to this place primarily for "Location, Location, Location!" It is a breath taking beauty of a spot. Watching the waves pound the beach under a beautiful sunset, there is no other place in Cabo that you can be that intimate with the Pacific and enjoy a great meal. It is a world away from the noisy Cabo mainstream. Very serene.

Come prepare so you can forget about everything else and you will enjoy a very memorable night!

Definitely a must-do and try to get during sunset so you can get full beauty of this interesting and awesome restaurant built literally on the side of a cliff on the Pacific Ocean.

The experience surrounding El Farallon is overwhelming the minute you drive through the tunnel to begin your journey! The waves and cliff, the gorgeous setting, impeccable service and delicious food - every part of the experience was special and memorable. I'd urge everyone who visits cabo to make this a must do!

Open air restaurant on the side of a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean as its waves crash the beach just below you at an exclusive resort on the other side of the mountain from downtown Cabo. Spectacular. Food is excellent. For one price including gratuity, you pick the fish or meat for the entree and 2 side orders and they create the meal around it. Our waiter, Lupe, was great. We've been to many fine restaurants in Cabo. This is one of the best.

If you are up for an amazing experience you must make a reservation at El Farallon... and be sure to plan ahead as it books up! Everything from the entry to the resort, to photos on the cliff, champagne tasting and amazing food was perfect. The view and crashing waves make everything come together. The service was excellent and the food was amazing. The tuna and shrimp had to be a favorite at our table. They have amazing drinks and a fabulous selection of wine. Worth every penny and yes it will cost you a view! Very romantic.
