Benno, the hotel’s restaurant and bar, offers a union of classic Mexican and Mediterranean cuisine, built on the diverse culinary abundance of Baja. The restaurant is open to the public for dinner every day from 5 until 10 pm and for breakfast from 7 until 11 am daily.

As you explore Todos Santos and nearby communities, you will see the fishermen drive their panga boats onto the beach and pull in their daily haul, smell pungent basil in the night air and watch truckloads of strawberries, herbs and green beans being hauled from fields not far from the beach. The menu will focus on this incredible local bounty, variations on regional Mexican staples and other simply prepared, fresh foods. The wine program focuses on supporting vignerons that farm sustainably, with a special emphasis on organic and biodynamic wines. The selection spans Western Europe and the U.S., and includes some of the exceptional wines from within Mexico. The cocktail menu highlights small-batch mezcals, tequilas and classic warm-weather cocktails, and of course a selection of extra cold Mexican beers.
