Paired with spicy salsa, avocado, and offered in tacos or mole just to name a few—when referring to Mexican food—the possibilities are almost endless no matter the states of origin.

The culinary experience at Grand Velas Los Cabos extends along various paths, from the highlights of Italian and French cuisine to Mexican flavors that blend in harmony with the culture of its region.

In this article, we will cover some of the best dishes offered by our restaurants, some of which you should definitely try during your next visit!


Cabrilla at Grand Velas Los Cabos

Get a taste of the freshest catch of the day, in a fine cevicheria that features cocktails, and oysters in their shell all served to your taste. Delight your palate enveloped by a carefree ambiance alongside the pool, while savoring ingredients from the region.

Our pick: The Arch

With the warm climate of Los Cabos, this special dish, in addition to paying tribute to Cabo's famous rock formation, is ideal for any time of the year. As we say in Mexico, it is suitable for only the brave due to its unique component, tatemado habanero pepper oil, which gives it a highly spicy kick, although when combined with fish, shrimp, purple onion, tomato, cilantro and avocado it renders an explosion of flavors. Coupled with a Mexican brewed beer, it's the perfect plan for a much needed laid back afternoon.

Oyster Bar

Amidst the fresh breeze of the sea to cool you down on a sunny day, an order of chocolate clams paired with a side of shrimp is a must dish. Seasoned with salt and lemon, or a delicious mignonette sauce with a touch of chipotle to spice things up.
