A bit of history...
One of the pioneers of Los Cabos had a vision some fifty years ago. As a hotelier, restaurateur, and founder of the Solmar Group, he envisioned a ranch on the Pacific side of the lower peninsula, but his dream was not of horses or barns, but rather an upscale hotel, beautiful residential homes, retail stores, almost everything that you would find in a small community. The land he purchased is filled with natural desert flora and fauna with rustic beauty.
Only a fifteen-minute drive from Cabo San Lucas, you'll find Rancho San Lucas. The property slopes down to the sea and has one of the most incredible views in all of Los Cabos; it almost takes your breath away. His vision has become a reality, with a hotel, residential homes, a Greg Norman signature golf course, and...a restaurant called Pícaro. In keeping with the image of Rancho San Lucas, Pícaro can be defined as rustic chic. This is an exciting new entity for Romeo & Julieta led by Chef Matias Forté under the auspices of the Solmar Group, utilizing the experience and fine reputation of the several establishments under the umbrella of Romeo & Julieta.
If you’re an adventurous traveler and eater, this restaurant is for you. It is one of the remotest, has the best views of the ocean, is among the most unusual and has some of the best food in all of Los Cabos. Pícaro is celebrated for its natural setting, exceptional bounty of vegetables from nearby farms, foraged herbs, seafood, and a bit of whimsy. The atmosphere conjures thoughts of an Italian hideaway or dining in a Tuscan villa.
Who is Pícaro?
Pícaro is quite a famous character from history. He is a bit of a rogue, an imp, with mischief up his sleeve. He's a rascal. He is cunning and crafty. He survives on what he harvests from the land and catches from the sea. Put all of this together and you find Pícaro Garden Cuisine.
Come. Follow Pícaro!
