It’s no surprise that Los Cabos is home to a multitude of celebrity’s getaway villas. The beautiful beach scenery, mild weather and extreme level of luxury make it the perfect destination for Hollywood names to kick back, relax and eat. In the heart of downtown San José Del Cabo lies a unique and thrilling dining destination and a favorite among vacationing celebrities. El Espontánteo is the dining concept from Executive Celebrity Chef Juan Eumir. Located inside Hotel El Encanto Suites & Spa, the restaurant features a concept based on desire. While a menu is available, Chef Juan has perfected the art of spontaneous cooking (like its name suggests) by focusing on whipping up creations based on readily available ingredients instead of recipes and thought-out execution.
This unique type of dining experience has gained major popularity among big names like George Clooney, Cindy Crawford and Leonardo DiCaprio. “Some of them say they ate my food, died and went to heaven,” says Chef Juan when talking about the reactions he receives from his well-known clientele after they’ve finished their delectable meals. Meals so good and service so divine that many of these celebrities like Clooney are long-standing clients of Juan, proving his cuisine is one-of-a-kind. We even heard a few of them have already made reservations for Thanksgiving this year.
For a sight to see and a bite to indulge in, make sure to visit El Espontáneo the next time you’re in Cabo. Keep your elbows off the table, you never know who might be sitting next to you.
