Agua by Larbi Restaurant

Agua by Larbi Mexiterranean Restaurant

Adjacent to the resort’s infinity-edge pool with stunning views of the Sea of Cortez, Agua by Larbi features the renowned ‘Mexiterranean’ cuisine of our award-winning Executive Chef Larbi Dahrouch. The restaurant’s palapa-style design with indoor and outdoor seating offers a more casual alternative to Market, the resort’s upscale, formal restaurant overseen by renowned Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten.

Evenings at Agua are always memorable, with the moon reflecting on the water and serenading musicians setting the mood for a festive meal.

The restaurant's decor, including vibrant red and yellow glass mosaic walls, blue and white patterned tiles accenting everything from a grand fireplace to the tables and a cluster of colorful Moroccan lanterns hanging over the Agua bar and lounge, is one of the highlights of this seaside eatery. There are also traditional Mexican touches such as custom-designed ceramic tableware from Guadalajara and a trickling fountain anchoring the restaurant’s courtyard terrace. A stunning glass-enclosed kitchen allows guests to watch Chef Larbi and his team perform their culinary magic. And magic it is, with appetizers such as a Roasted Medley of Vegetables “Tortita” with Picholine Olive Tapenade and Sautéed Foie Gras served with Blue Corn Polenta and a Red Wine Grenache Reduction. Entrées include signature dishes such as Tagine of Lamb served with Artichokes, Sundried Tomatoes, Goat Cheese and Raz Alhanout Sauce and Grilled Veal Chop served with Plátano Macho “Estofado” (stew) in a Black Mole Sauce.

Agua by Larbi’s menu is complemented by a diverse wine list that showcases Mexico’s many undiscovered wines that make up 60% of the list.
