When only the best in elegant indulgence will do and a to-die-for ocean view is the setting of choice, Pitahayas is the answer for you. It is the ideal spot for a special celebration and will no doubt turn even a typical evening into an out-of-this-world experience.
Serving inexplicably delicious, award-winning Pacific Rim cuisine under one of the most beautiful, if not the largest, palapas in Baja California Sur, Pitahayas offers top-notch service, immaculate spaces, and an Asian fusion menu that combines the best in fresh seafood with ingredients found in recipes from areas such as China, Japan, and Thailand. Although by no means a Mexican restaurant, Pitahayas’ ambience is one in keeping with the sophisticated Mexican paradise that is Los Cabos.
Chef Romeike utilizes ingredients that are found in contemporary Mexican kitchens, such as rice, avocado, and even tropical fruit salsas. Dishes containing locally grown produce are abundant here.
Among the many salads, which incorporate the freshest local produce, are the mixed salad with salmon for $14.50 U.S. and the traditional Caesar salad for $12 U.S.
A Thai salad, with tender strips of chicken, plus carrots and zucchini, will set you back just $13 U.S. Sheraton Hacienda del Mar at Cabo Del Sol, Carretera Transpeninsular km 10, Cabo San Lucas, (624) 145-6126, www.pitahayas.com.
