Experience a Taste of Mexico at Pueblo Bonito Resorts

October 07, 2022

At Pueblo Bonito Resorts, our highly acclaimed chefs are devoted to creating unforgettable culinary experiences by offering extensive choices for your dining pleasure—from a traditional breakfast at Palomas, a superb and colorful theme night in La Nao, a fine dining dinner at LaFrida, fresh seasonal seafood with La Baja flavors at Península, or an impressive trompo al pastor in El Mexicano at The Market at Quivira. This month, help us celebrate our chefs on International Chef’s Day October 20th by visiting us and sampling some of our favorite restaurants’ exquisite Mexican flavors. Read on to whet our appetite and make plans to fall in love with the freshest flavors of Mexico and the Baja Peninsula.

Viva la Mexico! Experience a very traditional approach to the very best tacos al pastor, burritos, flautas, enchiladas, and tortas ahogadas at El Mexicano at The Market at Quivira in Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach. Expect to savor a range of delicate and fiery regional flavors in a spirited cafe where dinner menus showcase ingredients from local farmers and fishermen. Simple sides of tortilla chips with fresh salsa or guacamole and beans and rice offer quick options on your busier days. Stop in El Mexicano for a traditionally inspired tasty breakfast or even an "antojito" before dinner.

Taste the best of Mexico at Palomas at Pueblo Bonito Los Cabos where a regionally inspired menu overflows with fresh, locally sourced ingredients are prepared according to traditional recipes by expert chefs. Open for breakfast and dinner, this Mexican restaurant and bar offer the perfect harmony to start or end your day. Try our chef’s special enmoladas—essentially enchiladas covered in mole sauce—or a regional favorite, machaca featuring dried beef that accompanies eggs for breakfast or fills tortillas at dinnertime. In the afternoon at Palomas, you'll find Mexican themed festivities where tequila and mezcal are the main attractions, making this picturesque restaurant a traditional and fun-filled experience.

The secret’s out: Península Restaurant is your go-to destination for oceanfront seating, locally sourced food, live music, and a sultry yet sophisticated ambiance that’s sure to keep you coming back for more. As part of a multi-million-dollar expansion at the Towers at Pacifica, Pueblo Bonito opened a delightful and delicious window to the beach. With sweeping seaside views, Península Restaurant has since earned a reputation for its seasonal, Baja inspired menus replete with local, organic vegetables and fresh caught Pacific fish.

During your stay at Sunset Beach, reserve a table for two for a meal to remember at La Frida. Pueblo Bonito’s answer to a unique and inspired approach to gourmet Mexican cuisine, LaFrida earned the highest distinctions for fine dining in Los Cabos, including a AAA Four Diamond Award every year since 2008 for excellence in cuisine. With its dining room’s unique and colorful décor inspired by Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, LaFrida pays homage to regional cuisine, art, and culture. Guests have considered dining at LaFrida to be a magical experience that transcends time and tradition with a wide variety of authentic dishes that merge original, Oaxacan recipes with modern cooking techniques. Enhancing the flavors are the views; LaFrida’s elegant dining room offers indoor and outdoor seating with spectacular ocean panoramas. Please accept our challenge and taste the very best of what the region has to offer, if you can only tear your eyes from the view!

With gorgeous beachfront views and modern Mazatlán style, Cilantro’s at Pueblo Bonito Mazatlán is the ideal place for those who enjoy good food, good drinks, and good times. From opening day, the restaurant’s chef and talented kitchen staff have remained dedicated to serving the best of what’s fresh and have worked diligently to source menu ingredients from local farms, fishermen, and vendors. Given that Mazatlán is the shrimp capital of the world, the tasty crustaceans are a Cilantro’s staple arriving at your table, breaded, sauteed, in a scampi or fritter, over fish, grilled, or with a delicious side. But shrimp isn’t the restaurant’s only specialty. Any number of fabulous soups, salads, and sandwiches prepared with a Mexican-inspired flair, or a carefully prepared steak served from the grill fill the menu every night. It’s the ideal place to enjoy a delicious brunch, too. Cilantro’s expert staff scours the region for unique and traditional recipes to create seasonal brunch menus with as many local and organic ingredients as possible so you can savor every tantalizing bite no matter the hour. Enjoy a breathtaking view of the ocean while you dine.

Casa 46 is the new face of refined cuisine in Mazatlán. Inspired by its home in the heart of Mazatlán’s historic downtown, the restaurant’s menu offers a fresh take on traditional Mexican flavors. With Chef Carlos Contreras guiding his talented staff, Casa 46 has won global favor for its flavor, becoming a dining destination for world travelers with discerning palates. Given that Mazatlán is the shrimp capital of the world, the succulent crustaceans feature prominently in the locally sourced menu. But shrimp isn’t the restaurant’s only specialty; any number of fabulous soups, salads, and sizzling grilled steaks are prepared with a Mexican-inspired flair every night, each with an Insta-worthy presentation. But it’s not only the food that’s worth highlighting; it’s the view! Casa 46 is located in the heart of Mazatlán’s Historical Center so diners can enjoy a front row seat to the bustling Machado Square, an area brimming with life and local flavor. At once elegant and inviting, it is a cherished meeting place for Mazatlán locals and tourists alike.

You can also find delightful Mexican theme nights at our buffet restaurants, where you can try traditional dishes from all over the country. Visit La Nao on Mondays from 5:00 to 10:30 pm at Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach and Mare Nostrum on Saturdays from 5:00 to 10:30 pm at Pueblo Bonito Rosé.
