La Panga Antigua was excellent. Not only did they easily accomodate my small group in the outdoor section, despite many other reservations, but the service was flawless. Truly excellent. The restaurant has authentic Old Town character and charm that can't be bought, no matter how...More

We found this gem of a restaurant after walking around the town square in San Jose del Cabo adjacent to the Church. While walking in, a young couple shouted out, "Order the Sea Bass and the Lamb Chops!" This were so right! There were six...More

This lovely restaurant could easily be overlooked with its unassuming exterior. But, the inside with old arches and brick walls is inviting and tranquil. We were warmly greeted and seated on a small patio overlooking the garden. Service was personal, professional and timely. Our dinners...More

A stylishly ornamented, antiquated garden atmosphere, dotted with white, table-clothed, tables, surrounding an open-air grill kitchen. Ensconced in this romantic portico we enjoyed our favorite meals of this trip to Cabo—I LOVED the grilled lobster tail with a mango dipping sauce that made me forget...More

Incredible tuna and sea bass entrees. Sashimi trio as a starter was beautifully presented (didn't get a picture). Chocolate tamal for desert was a wonderfully unique way to deliver a molten chocolate cake that is common to many restaurants. Magical ambiance!

If you want a special gringo-style upscale night with inspired ambiance. Go here. It's not a place that local people could afford to eat. We shared some teeny-sized appetizers and a dessert, just to enjoy the outdoor setting & its decor. It's beautiful. Dishes are...More
