La Deriva Restaurant
San Jose del Cabo, Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, México.
The new La Deriva Restaurant is the perfect place to enjoy authentic Italian fare for a relaxing dining adventure while letting the world go by. It opened on Valentine’s Day this year. Starting with carpaccio of beef or mussels in white wine, you’ll know you selected the right spot for a romantic evening on any occasion. As a second course, choose from fish, fowl, or beef prepared as only a true Italian can do, with a touch of vino, fresh organic veggies, and just the right seasonings. Pastas, Porter House, and organic chicken are all prepared to order to enjoy with your favorite wine. Save room for something dolci; the choices are delectable. Choose tiramisu enveloped in a house secret cocoa flavor. Panna cotta is always a treat in a true Italian restaurant, especially here with strawberry and chocolate sauce.
There are other delights at La Deriva Restaurant, but you can save those for another visit, as I’m sure there will be. Just arriving there is half the fun, to witness the awe-inspiring view. Solaz Los Cabos, km 18.5 on the tourist corridor, www.laderivarestaurant.com. Tues.–Sun. 5:30 p.m.–10:30 p.m.
