About the restaurant
For the voyager in everyone comes a restaurant that evokes wanderlust and awakens your palate. The specialty: robatayaki, a table side Japanese grill and the freshest produce from the sea. The setting: a beautiful nest-like structure suspended between ocean and land, and surrounded by “espejos de agua,” literally water mirrors, magical in their own right. It’s a setting fit for an adventurer.

Outstanding experience. From the moment you drive onto the property you feel special. The view is breathtaking and the walk to the restaurant is lovely. We had a delicious seafood dinner with locally caught very fresh fish. Dinner is 4 courses, prix fixe including your appetizer, soup, choice of entree and side dishes and dessert. Try to book an outside table & time your reservation to coincide with sunset. You won’t be disappointed.

Our dinner at Carolina was just perfect. The level of attention to detail in every facet cannot be overstated. The food is exquisite. The staff is super professional. The ambience is serene and sophisticated. For all of this, the pricing is commensurate but reasonable. If you have the opportunity to visit Carolina, run ... don't walk.

Absolutely incredible food. Seriously, I’ve eaten at very high end, creative restaurants around the world and this blew me away. Particularly the prawns…wow! I also had the sweet potato appetizer which surprised me with its deep flavor and the delectable bbq pineapple dessert. Yummy drink. Eduardo was a fantastic and knowledgeable server. The other staff were very welcoming as well. All wonderful! I wish more people were here as opposed to the overpriced more showy spots. The chef sources local ingredients and supports the local community. Please give your belly a gift and visit this place :)

About the restaurant
”Animalón by the sea experience is the definition of my cuisine. Using only Baja ingredients, my mission is to pay homage to local producers, and the lifestyle of Baja Sur." Chef javier Plascencia.
Animalon migrates from under a 200-year-old oak tree to the seas of Baja California sur, becoming part of La Isla tour family, who have given all their heart to build his new home, a 49” feet boat with luxury details unique in Los Cabos, to become Animalon By The Sea.
The 3 hour Sunset Journey begins from the Cabo San Lucas Marina, and sails through the Sea of Cortez, with close up sights of the Arch, Lover’s Beach and lots more. Very often we get to share this experience with marine life such as whales, Sea Lions and Dolphins.

It’s a completely wonderful experience. Every course was fantastic. The views are unbelievable. It’s a smaller boat than it looks which made it more intimate. I highly recommend this experience when traveling to Cabo San Lucas.
