“Magical views and very good food”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

We were recommended this restaurant by a friend. I am very happy we experienced it during our stay. I chose our last evening in Cabo to visit.

There was a beautiful Wedding starting as we entered the eating area. I felt as if we were a part of the ceremony. It was gorgeous.

The views are just sensational, a great outlook of the sea with the beautiful Arch across the ocean. The sunset was magical and I loved the surprise at sunset. Won't spoil it for those intending to visit.

The food was very good, not spectacular. Prices reasonable for Cabo. We enjoyed entrees, mains and dessert.

There were surfers out in the water and even though we were there for a few hours, we enjoyed the scenery so much that time flew by. Waiters took their time, letting food settle between courses, never rushing us.

A photographer was walking around taking photos of couples, and groups. The sunset would have been picturesque but by the time he decided to come to us (we had a child with us), the sun had long gone. He even went to the tables around us twice before asking if we'd like to have some photos.

The staff were amazing. Well knowledged in both the food and wine. We were very well looked after.

My credit card had been blocked and our waiter was very polite and patient while we tried to sort it out.

Upon leaving, a gentleman had a telescope available to view the stars (a wonderful exit for patrons). My Son loved this.

A cab was called for us and the wait was quite long. When we were leaving, a Spanish speaking patron and his young girlfriend tried to take the cab, in which the valet attendant quickly stopped them. They continued to have a pleasant chat together whilst we left.

To end, this place is a MUST SEE, even just for an hour..

“Great Sunset.... Good Food.”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

The sunset is spectacular at this restaurant that sits on a cliff overlooking the Cabo San Lucas bay and the arch..... great views and sunset.... the food is good, but not great.... since we were there a few years ago the menu has changed... seemed more upscale since we were there.

The pricing is reasonable as most items are 22.00 - 27.00. I had the Snapper encrusted with olives.... it was different but was very good, 23.00. My wife had steak cooked on a hot stone at the table, 27.00.... it was very good....

If you cant go for dinner, go for a drink and the sunset...

“Wonderful view and delicious food!”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

The Sunset Da Mona Lisa came highly recommended by reviews and even travel magazines. This restaurant was actually chosen by my boyfriend for our anniversary supper and it did not disappoint! We were not able to get a reservation for "sunset" but we came early to have a drink at the bar and watch the sun go down. There were many seats/couches and areas to sit outside that had the same view if you had been sitting at your restaurant table. The view was absolutely fantastic and is something I recommend not to be missed when visiting Cabo San Lucas.

When we did have our meal, the sun was already down but we had a fantastic seat overlooking the ocean and city lights. We ordered a bottle of wine that the waiter continued to fill our glasses with when they got empty. An amuse bouche sample was brought to us free of charge (phyllo wrapped beef) that was delicious. I ordered a broccoli puree filled ravioli with sausage and tomato sauce. The portion looked small but it was rich and very filling. My boyfriend ordered the sea bass and also felt that the portion looked small so he ordered the shrimp to go with it. By the time he finished the sea bass he was very full and didn't even need the shrimp. Both of us loved our meals! After the meal, the chef sent out a complimentary dessert sampler, which was the perfect ending to our meal. This was by far the best meal and dining experience we had the entire time in Cabo San Lucas and one of the best restaurants I have ever been to.

To top off the evening, there was a man operating a high powered telescope that we were allowed to look through. He showed us Jupiter and Saturn! This was such a neat experience, you could even see the rings around Saturn.

I will certainly be visiting this restaurant again if I am in Cabo.

“Amazing View and Good Food”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

My wife and I enjoyed dinner and the amazing view at Sunset Mona Lisa. Fortunately we had a perfectly clear and calm evening. The waiter mentioned that the prior two days had been so windy that outdoor seating was not possible. The food and service was very good and the setting not be be beat.
