Alcaravea Gourmet This downtown hideaway is worth a visit, if only to glimpse its lovely flower-and-vine-garlanded entrance and to relax in a romantic bistro atmosphere framed by candles and colorful paintings. Add affordable prices for a generous menu of Mediterranean-style dishes, all beautifully presented by chef Enrique Diaz and his well-trained staff, and this is a mandatory stop for visitors who want to sample the best of Cabo San Lucas. Rich Italian pastas are a consistent menu staple–one of a dozen pasta options included with each entrée– but so are twists on traditional starters, salads, and seafood specialties. Start with a bowl of Alcaravea Mushrooms, earthy white treasures sautéed in extra-virgin olive oil, white wine, and marsala; baked with balsamic vinegar; and topped with fresh Parmesan and spices. Nontraditional salads include the Mar y Tierra carpaccio featuring fresh fish and beef drizzled in Greek sauce, then garnished with arugula and Parmesan. Main course choices include a Roman saltimbocca, veal scaloppini with prosciutto, and sage in a white wine sauce. Plenty of pairing options are available—by the glass or bottle—from an internationally representative wine list. Calle Ignacio Zaragoza and 16 de Septiembre, Cabo San Lucas, (624) 143-3730.
