Dine Like A Celebrity

If we are going to talk about stars, Los Cabos gastronomy shines for itself.

It was 1950, and the breathtaking landscapes, bright colors, and impeccable flavors of Los Cabos had already hypnotized Old Hollywood celebrities such as Sophia Loren, Elizabeth Taylor, Bing Crosby, Desi Arnaz, and Lucille Ball. Ever since, the tip of Baja California’s Peninsula has been a tropical paradise with a very exclusive VIP guest list: from Oprah Winfrey and Jennifer Aniston to Lady Gaga and the entire cast of Sex and The City, just to name-drop a few.

The elite quorum sure meets the high-end cuisine that Los Cabos offers, so here is a list of those exquisite places that celebrities cannot get enough of–and love posting about on their social media. Whether it's the location, the food, the flavors, or the impeccable presentation, these restaurants assure to meet the expectations of the most demanding palates.

COVID NOTE: All these restaurants, except la Cantina which is still temporarily closed, are following all safety procedures, with a limited number of seats, constantly cleaning and sanitizing, and personal is wearing protective equipment.


Where the Gulf of California meets the Pacific Ocean, you can find a hidden culinary jewel inside The Cape Hotel. As you open the menu, you understand the elegant, sustainable, and creative concept designed by the renowned Mexican chef, Enrique Olvera, which offers a seafood banquet infused with Mexican, Peruvian and Asian flavors and the freshness of local ingredients. The turquoise ocean views are worth a table on the terrace where a five-course tasting menu and some homemade mezcal cocktails will make you feel just like a top-notch celeb.

WHAT TO ORDER? The octopus anticucho, the Veracruz ceviche, and the fried banana dessert are a must. Black Miso Fish Tacos, cured nopales salad, and grilled avocados are Gwyneth Paltrow’s recommendation on Goop.com.

ADDRESS: Carretera Transpeninsular Km 5 Misiones, Misiones del Cabo, Cabo San Lucas.


Embark on a journey between the Japanese and Mexican culture, under the beautiful, high-end creations of Chef Ángel Carbajal; who was mentored by the creator of Spicy Tuna, Chef Masayuki Niikura.

Rumor has it; George Clooney thinks this restaurant is home to the best sushi in the city!

WHAT TO ORDER? Shrimp Tempura, Tuna Tostadas, Japanese yellowtail sashimi, and some off-the-menu hairy balls.

More than a restaurant, Cocina de Autor is a magnificent experience, one of those restaurants you have to try once in a lifetime. Led by a Two-Michelin-Star Chef, Sidney Schutte, whose name is often accompanied by the term “creative artist” because of his delightful creations. Just like the name of the five-star gastronomical concept suggests, the eight-course menu is filled with signature masterpieces that do not cease to surprise all your senses, as the luxurious atmosphere emerges you into the classical old-Hollywood glamour.

WHAT TO ORDER? Order the eight/ten-course menu, you will not regret it. Do stop before at the bar where you can begin your night with one of the signature cocktails and an appetizer.

Nothing says glamour as much as dinner being prepared by a private chef, especially if it is executive Hollywood celebrity chef, Juan Eumir, whose client list includes Leonardo DiCaprio and Cindy Crawford. Located inside El Encanto Hotel at the heart of the historical art district, a creative and intuitive experience awaits. Just like its name suggests, Chef Juan plays with distinct flavors, textures, and techniques without having a recipe or rules to follow, based on whatever ingredients he’s got, assuring a spontaneous and unique meal every single day.

WHAT TO ORDER? It’s a surprise! Chef Juan handpicks a variety of fresh ingredients on a local market every single day, combining flavors and intuition to create spontaneous meals.

If you are ready for a little fiesta in your mouth, you’ve got to come to one of the Kardashian’s favorite spot. An ancient colonial-style facade guards the place where the Mexican lively atmosphere and cultural tradition merge into an unforgettable night. A candle-lit terrace guides you to your colorful table under a classical palapa, as music sets the mood, you prepare yourself to enjoy the irresistible flavors of Baja’s cuisine with a touch of Guerrero’s flare–almost all dishes are fresh seafood and mesquite-grilled steaks seasoned with delightful local spices.

WHAT TO ORDER? Try the handmade tortillas, chile poblano, the enchiladas, and homemade flan. There is also a fabulous wine cellar filled with some pretty good Mexican wine brought from Valle de Guadalupe.

ADDRESS: Av. del Pescador S/N, El Medano Ejidal, 23410 Cabo San Lucas, B.C.S.


Last but not least, this is not your average fancy place to go out for dinner, but a very casual local bar where many celebrities love to go out and party their brains out. A classical Mexican cantina, just like those in the movies, is filled with rustic decorations and local music. The drinks and food here are not only good but also at unbeatable low prices. Who knows, you might just get to party like a true rockstar or meet a few.

WHAT TO ORDER? Nothing beats Mexican food when it comes to drinking and eating. Try the quesadillas, the tacos, or classical wings with tamarind sauce. If you want to drink like a local, ask for a Paloma (tequila with lemon soda) or a Charro Negro (tequila, coke, and lemon) or a Cielo Rojo (beer with tomato and clam juice, lemon, and salsas)
