There are restaurants in this list that are ideal for everything from a romantic evening to a good time with friends.
They feature beautiful views, delicious food, and friendly service. No matter what kind of delicious experience you’re looking for, there’s something here for everyone.
1. Sunset Mona Lisa
As indicated by the name, the view may be one of the best parts of this experience! However, that is contested by the fact that the food is amazing. This is a restaurant that serves Italian and other Mediterranean food. As it is in a coastal town, it is also known for good seafood.
One of the highlights of this restaurant are the live opera performances. They are a unique experience, so prepare to enjoy. The views are beautiful, and the restaurant provides guests with blankets and other warmers in case it is a bit chilly. The rooftop location allows you to have a good view of the ocean, and the famous arch. It is “one of the coolest restaurants” in town, according to the New York Times.
If you want to get into Sunset Mona Lisa, you need to make sure you have a reservation. This is a popular spot, and lots of people want to visit!
2. El Farallon
This restaurant is very popular and is located at the Pedregal Resort. It is right on the coast, and features seafood of the day caught by the local fisherman. The staff, views, and champagne service are remarkable.
It is ranked high on the list of best romantic restaurants in Mexico, and also appears on many lists as a restaurant with one of the best ocean views.
It is important to know that El Farallon is outside, in order to provide the best ocean view. Blankets are available and hung on the backs of the chairs in case of colder weather. This is another restaurant that requires a reservation, but scores of satisfied customers agree it’s worth it.
This is the sister restaurant to another popular restaurant called The Office. It is more elegant and classy than The Office, which is located closer to the beach, although both are high quality and well worth a try.
The staff are very friendly and attentive, and the food is incredible. The entire menu is delicious, but the specials of the day are where it’s at! The alcohol, dessert, and coffee are also fantastic additions to dinner.
As with the restaurants above, we recommend that you make a reservation first to ensure a table.
As with many of the restaurants recommended, Lorenzillo’s specialty is seafood. The seafood is all fresh and caught nearby. The most notable dish to order at Lorenzillo’s is the lobster.
It is also set in a nice location, providing a tranquil view of the marina.
The service at this restaurant is fantastic. The servers want to make sure that you are happy with their service and with the food that you order.
It can be a little pricey, but reportedly it is well worth it. Again, it is best to reserve ahead of time; it’s so good, lots of other people want to go too!
5. Don Manuel’s
Like El Farallon above, Don Manuel’s is also located at the Pedregal Resort. This is an authentic Mexican restaurant that serves a traditional breakfast and dinner. It can be a great way to start and end the day — or both, if you’re feeling adventurous!
There is a huge focus on the freshest and most local ingredients, so the menu changes daily to reflect that. It is a fun place to go to before dinner as well, as they feature rare Mexican spirits curated in-house. They have live music every night and provide both vegan and vegetarian options to make sure all guests feel welcome.
These restaurants vary in cuisine, but the thing to try is the sea food. All these restaurants boast local seafood, often caught on the same day by local fishermen. The locations are all by the sea, offering great views of the ocean, the sunset, and local landmarks.
These are great places to enjoy the company of others, eat good food, and share good drinks. For a nice final touch, each restaurant has spectacular dessert and coffee options that are great to close at the night.
