The sun dips below the turquoise horizon, painting the Cabo San Lucas marina in fiery hues. Laughter dances with clinking glasses, but instead of tequila shots, exquisite dishes grace the tables – culinary masterpieces whispering of potential Michelin recognition. The question simmers on every foodie’s tongue: will Cabo secure its first Michelin star?

As of today, the answer remains tantalizingly close to “yes,” but not quite there. Last month, Michelin inspectors cast their discerning gaze upon Baja California Sur, sending shockwaves through the culinary landscape. Anticipation, thick as the desert air, hangs heavy. Chefs and restaurateurs alike brace themselves for the verdict: will Cabo finally join the exclusive club of Michelin-starred destinations?

Michelin stars hold undeniable prestige, but their absence shouldn’t eclipse the dazzling culinary gems Cabo already boasts. Talented chefs are pushing boundaries, composing symphonies of flavor on every plate. From intimate waterfront havens to bustling hacienda-style restaurants, the variety of experiences is as captivating as the food itself.

Imagine savoring melt-in-your-mouth tacos al pastor at “El Toro Guero,” a local legend hidden in a side street. Or picture yourself at “Acre,” where Chef Javier Plascencia orchestrates a delectable dance of Baja influences and international flair. Each bite whispers of the passion and dedication poured into Cabo’s culinary scene, Michelin stars or not.

Top 3 Contenders for Cabo's First Michelin Star

The Future is Flavorful: A Gastronomic Odyssey Beckons

The ME Hotel splashed across the scene with other offerings, such as Mamazzita, Funky Geisha, and the Pollen festival, featuring international DJ sensations such as Kygo and Gryffyn.

One of our favorite recommendations is the Kobe Rib Eye Steak. Grupo RosaNegra has won awards for their cultivation of Kobe beef and upholding the standards of Kobe cultivation. In addition to a great steak here are a few other things you can expect when dining at Taboo Cabo Restaurant:

● A delicious and vibrant menu: A restaurant is only as good as its menu, right? This has got you well-covered. From a designated gin bar, offering Galata Tower and Pamukkale, to a versatile champagne selection, including Moet & Chandon Nectar Imperial, and Veuve Clicquot Rich, to name a few. If you come with a monstrous thirst–or perhaps just a big group—Taboo has you covered with a fine selection of Salmanzars, Balthazars and the elite Nebuchadnezzer!

Expect live dance sets, live music that revolves around the restaurant, fire, light shows and exotic entertainment. People dancing on tables and chairs….. yes, there some of that too!

● Located on a swimmable beach: What’s dinner without a pre-or post-beach event? Located on the Medano beach in the ME hotel, the location is great for enjoying the polished and vibrant atmosphere you want with the blend of sandy, salty fun outside, too! Great for a post-dinner stroll in the sand.

● Luxury Offerings: In addition to food, the Tabo Cabo menu also offers cigars and a selection of hookah. For those looking for a full night of entertainment and enjoyment, Taboo Cabo has you covered. And if the dinner runs long, you can take your smoking devices to the rooftop lounge. Actually, we recommend you plan on it!

● Equipped with valet services: A well-loved feature, when looking specifically for Taboo Cabo reservations, is that there is a respectful, timely, and courteous valet service.
