Acre, Mexico

To sit in “Acre” is one of life’s little pleasures

To sit in “Acre” is one of life’s little pleasures

Cabo San Lucas sits due South of California in the Mexican state of Baja. The plaything of the rich Californian; littered with 5 star resorts, scenic backdrops and the warm waters of the gulf of California. A place where paradise beaches and crimson sunsets; jostle with the rowdy bars and party crowd.
Sitting on its own plot of land is a 25 acre restaurant and farm, Acre. The owners are Cameron Watt and Stuart McPherson, Vancouverites who own the successful “Keefer Bar”, fell in love with Cabo during a winter holiday a number of years ago. Armed with a plan to create a restaurant committed to fresh, locally sourced food and ingredients “Acre” was born. On site sits a working 5 acre farm which directly supplies to the restaurant, anything that can’t be found or produced is sourced only from local Cabo farmers.  This is a genuine “farm to table” restaurant.
A modern, seasonal, rotating menu was created by mexican restaurant vetrans Kevin Luzande and Oscar Torres. To sit in “Acre” is one of life’s little pleasures. Its tranquillity, a bubble away from the madness of the tourist strip and the inevitable “senor Frog”.  We’ve all been there, falling head over heels for a holiday destination restaurant, persuaded by the setting, the feeling, the time and place. “Acre” doesn’t fall into the holiday trap. This is a restaurant that stands proudly on it’s own. Educated, impeccable cooking using the best seasonal ingredients. There are many reasons to visit Cabo but that list just expanded.
