Fine Dining at LaFrida (Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach-Cabo),

Reviewer: from Northport, New Y - See all reviews by Celticceliac

LaFrida is Sunset Beach's Mexican Cuisine restaurant, whose design was inspired by artist Frida Kahlo. Only open for dinner Tuesday-Sunday, they are on the pricier side of the cost spectrum and are not included in the all inclusive option. I honestly would NEVER eat here if it wasn't a honeymoon, and was disappointed with the prices. Staff seemed knowledgeable, with the help of the dining cards, and were willing to accommodate our needs. Many dishes were safe without question, and other things could be altered.

We ordered two dishes to share, and were also given a few things on the house to taste. Our dinner included Bluefin Tuna Tartar, a soup of Asparagus, Spinach, Parmigiano cheese and white truffle oil, a salad of beets, pecans, greens, raspberry, and honey, white chocolate rosemary ice cream, and a few drinks. Overall the food was very high quality and delicious, although the portions were small. We found the staff to be helpful, although quick to get frustrated and annoyed. I can attribute this somewhat to the language barrier, but at one point one gentlemen who clearly understood what we were saying took offense to us saying we couldn't have the complimentary dish and rushed off with an audible sign and an eye roll. This being our first experience I was a bit upset and worried for the week to come, that is until the manager came over to apologize for the confusion and offer us another dish.

Good Experience at The Bistro (Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach),

The Bistro, Sunset's international 'family style' dining experience is one of their more causal restaurants and is open 24 hours. The place has indoor and outdoor seating galore, allowing for minimal wait time and beautiful views of the ocean (and whales!). The first time we went here I used the dining card with my waiter, and our presence and needs spread throughout the staff like wildfire. Every server after that knew instantly what I was speaking about when I started the gluten free introduction, and was happy and willing to accommodate or answer any questions we might have..
This became our go-to spot, and I felt comfortable exploring new dishes. I honestly can't find anything wrong with any of the dishes we had here (which included items for breakfast, lunch, and dinner). We had dishes like Shrimp tacos, Sashimi with jalapeno, Sea Bass with Vegetable sides and rice, Fish A la Talla, Breakfast omelettes, salads, nachos, plenty of drinks, and flan. The flan, my god the flan: It was amazing. All delicious, all good portions, all decently priced, and all served with a smile.

Pueblo Bonito Sunset Resort is Gluten Free Accommodating!,

Reviewer: from Northport, New York - See all reviews by Celticceliac

Outside of the restaurants, there were many small bars and swim up spots (Yes I could swim while eating a taco and drinking a margarita) where we could grab a quick bite to eat on the resort property. We learned quickly that if we wanted nachos that weren't fried we just had to ask for 'lite nachos', which meant they were baked, so a variety of nacho dishes became a good go-to snack. We also had access to gluten free sushi and sashimi, salads, ceviche, tacos, dips and salasa, and other items. Oh, and Drinks. Lots and lots of drinks. After day two or so EVERY server we spoke to knew of our needs and was happy to accommodate, make suggestions, or answer questions about the various menus at each location.

There were only two things that weren't gluten free friendly about the restaurant. First, their breakfast buffet was almost entirely gluten based so it wasn't worth our money. A few additions to this would quickly solve this problem. Secondly, there wasn't a large convenience store on the property that had a lot of gluten free options. Although there was one that offered deli sandwiches and salad options in addition to some of the grocery staples, there weren't many fresh ingredients, or gluten free selections here. We found it easier to shop in town at one of the other resorts that had a small supermarket. It was also cheaper to do this.

Overall our experience at this resort was fantastic, and far from the disaster I was anticipating. Once we were understood, and the language barrier crossed, we were accommodated happily (mostly) and served wonderful food. I would highly recommend it for a trip to Cabo, regardless of the fact that it's slightly biased because I have no experience with other resorts anywhere. Either way, you know it's a safe option!
