El Farallon, cliffside grill at Capella Pedregal Hotel & Resort, the best seafood restaurant in Cabo San Lucas.
El Farallón is a Los Cabos restaurant tucked into the cliffs of Capella Pedregal that resembles a coastal seafood shop that has survived its share of storms. The restaurant is stocked daily with bounty from local fishermen. ‘Farallon‘ in Spanish means ‘a rock that comes out of the ocean.’ El Farallon is situated Cliffside over the Pacific Ocean, where the local catch rests on mounds of shaved ice. Beside it, an old fashion scale weighs each catch, and the selection of the day is handwritten with chalk onto a blackboard.
Various selections from the day’s catch are displayed on ice in El Farallón’s market-style fish display, or “La Panga,” accompanied by local experts available to answer your questions and assist in your decision. After making your selection, your seafood is weighted and bagged and sent directly to the chef to be prepared on an open char grill. As your meal cooks, the grill spreads the charred aroma and the pungent flavor of freshly ground chilies.
El Farallón invites guests to gather with friends to enjoy Cabo San Lucas fine dining and savor pitchers of Sangria or Capella Margaritas in a casual atmosphere accentuated by the evening sunset above crashing ocean waves.
