Sunset da Mona Lisa – LCM 43 Spring 2016


Sunset Da Mona Lisa_13Abril15_FE_05The insanely romantic cliff-side restaurant was named for Leonardo da Vinci’s celebrated masterpiece, and rightfully so. Make a reservation ahead of time to enjoy the views as the sky transforms into a brilliant watercolor and the sun descends over Land’s End. The menu boasts a quality and sophistication that could conquer the most discerning palate; its colors and flavors combining to create a one-of-a-kind experience, especially for a celebration like a birthday. Start with one of the bubbly Champagnes from Taittinger Terrace. An appetizer worth sharing (or as an entrée) consists of three large prawns wrapped in phyllo, quickly deep fried and served with a variety of dipping sauces. A local fish is usually on the menu, but don’t shy away from trying the salmon flown in fresh from Canada, crispy on the outside and moist on the inside served over pureed cauliflower. Another entrée with a wow factor is the lamb shank. Valet parking. Km 6.5 on the Tourist Corridor, Cabo San Lucas, (624) 145-8160, www.sunsetmonalisa .com.
