Baja Lobster Co.
It’s only appropriate that Baja Lobster Co. is set near Luxury Avenue in what is known as the Marina Golden Zone since its signature offering, lobster, is the most luxurious of all menu options. And what a setting it is: an alfresco dining area shaded by an elegant white awning that looks out at the fishing boats and luxury yachts moored in the Cabo San Lucas Marina. Add a spectacular sunset exploding in a burst of vivid reds and purples beyond the luxury villa dotted Pedregal hillside, plus a guitarist strumming romantic Spanish ballads, and you’ll understand why this is one of the truly magical Los Cabos dining experiences. But let’s be clear: The lobster is the star of the show.
The surest way to impress servers is the straight lobster ticket: an appetizer of lobster tacos in Thermidor sauce followed by lobster salad and a butter-drizzled lobster tail served with truffle mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables. But one can’t go wrong with any of the menu choices. Oysters Rockefeller, for example, are an excellent way to start the proceedings, and the filet mignon has enough cachet to stand up to the most-regal red-clawed crustacean (if it sounds like a tough decision, just order the surf and turf).
The ultimate “go big” move is to pair a fine bottle of Champagne with your lobster extravaganza, although more fiscally conscious guests will find plenty of affordable tipples by the glass or bottle.
