Awesome views and ambiance. Only real positive. Service friendly but lacking fine dining server experience. Menu far too confusing and tacky single sheet. Food, OK, but the saltiness of some dishes was overwhelming. Check you bill to ensure price charged matches what the menu says...More

Not specifically. It a more upscale place however. I seen and be seen atmosphere. It’s one of the few places in Cabo I do dress up as if you go to the rooftop bar you will want to be wearing something swanky.

We made a reservation... I think you can request it but I'm not sure about first come, first serve. I think they prioritize their reservations.

Description
Inspired by the views from one of the most desirable and secluded playas in Cabo San Lucas, chef Enrique Olvera conceived Manta with an intriguing double meaning: The manta ray symbolizes the kitchen’s focus on seafood, while manta, the Spanish word for blanket, conveys the chef’s emphasis on comfort. Olvera celebrates Pacific coasts traditions—taking inspiration from his native Mexico, as well as Peru, Japan and beyond—while maintaining a distinct and tastefully casual Baja sensibility with a commitment to sourcing local ingredients from Baja Califonia Sur. A curated beverage menu focused on mezcales, tequilas and sakes complements Manta’s fresh local ingredients.
