Good food and fireworks. This works every time for a great family dinner and entertainment. Location being right over the crashing waves is not too bad either. It was all fantastic.

Enjoyable but food wasn't worth what we paid. Food was good, atmosphere was amazing, live music was very nice. A bit pricy.

Gorgeous views spectacular setting. We loved the guacamole, the shrimp tacos and the Green cucumber and cilantro margarita, incredibly light and cooling.

The food and service was excellent but having fireworks going off out over the water and the water crashing into the cliff side where we were seated was the icing on the cake.

Just had dinner at Cocina del Mar a few nights ago and I have mixed feelings. This is a beautiful place no doubt, the view is incredible, you feel as if you are sitting on top of the water. However, we had gone to Agua at Palmilla the night before so I am comparing the two and hands down Agua!!... More

The food was prepared at the proper tempurature and the service was attentive. However we noticed that the cost was at least 20% higher than comparable restaurants off-site... More

As we descended the stairway, the evening light danced over the crashing waves (and this was before a drink!). They sat us on the edge of the patio, close as we could get to the pounding of the rocks. The food ranged from excellent (octopus, beet salad) to quite good (fish courses, desserts) to pretty good (seafood soup). The service... More
