Led by Executive Chef Volker Romeike and considered by many to be the best restaurant in Cabo San Lucas, Pitahayas takes its name from the Mexican equivalent of the dragonfruit. Located within the Hacienda del Mar Resort Cabo San Lucas. Enjoy deliciously innovative Mexican-Asian fusion cuisine, under a scenic beachside palapa roof, with contemporary flavors drawing upon the influences of the Far East – and adding a decidedly European twist. Complement your meal with a glass of wine from La Cava de Santiago, the restaurant’s Wine Spectator Award-winning underground wine cellar, offering over 400 labels. And drop in for a special cocktail at the Pitayitas Bar, located within the restaurant and open until 1:00 a.m. Pitahayas has been the proud recipient of the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences’ prestigious Five Star Diamond Award every year since 1999.
Dress code is upscale casual, and reservations are strongly recommended. Chef Volker Romeike has been a pioneer of eclectic and delicious Mexican-Asian fusion cuisine in Los Cabos and its foremost practitioner for more than 20 years. Romeike’s unique approach dates to his time in Hawaii, when his exposure to numerous Pacific Rim cultures led him to begin experimenting in the kitchen, blending a variety of Asian accents with the European cooking techniques he learned growing up in Germany. This initial fusion style was successful from the start, but it has become more fleshed out since the chef opened Pitahayas in 1995. In fact, it is only in the last few years that he has fully integrated traditional Mexican ingredients and menu standards into what is now a melting pot of far-flung Pacific Rim influences.The results speak for themselves. Romeike has been declared one of the best chefs in the world by the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences, which has awarded Pitahayas its prestigious Five Star Diamond every year since 1998.
