Bahia Hotel & Beach Club
Avenue El Pescador

Tel: 52 624 143 1889's insider take:

A hot spot for surfers, supermodels, and the generally hip, Bar La Esquina, a Mexican–Mediterranean restaurant inside the Bahia Hotel, is more than just a pretty face. Juicy mesquite-grilled hanger steak is artfully presented with a side of broccoli and Lincoln Log–stacked potato frites; on the (somewhat) lighter side, a sweet and salty salad of arugula, walnuts, cranberries, sheep's cheese, and prosciutto could tempt even the strictest of dieting supermodels. One of the most extensive wine lists in Cabo San Lucas and desserts such as toffee pudding with dulce de leche ice cream and berry-topped crème brûlée round out the indulgent menu. The decor is a cross between a modern Mexican pavilion and a Middle Eastern nightclub, with white stucco walls, wood floors, and Moroccan-style lanterns—all of which helps make this the post-dinner party spot. For a decent table, get there before the bar crowd struts in around eight o'clock.—Isabel Sterne
