Lovely, lovely, lovely but be prepared for a large meal. Atmosphere/ambiance is excellent and romantic. Service is excellent. Food fantastic. Share or be very hungry...I am a big girl and I cannot finish my meals.

The food was fine, very traditional, the wine list heavy on Mexican varieties. The service was outstanding, and the setting is nice, although it is an open-air restaurant so it was quite hot on our evening, and eating a heavy steak/lobster meal in the heat is not my favorite thing to do. Ultimately, because it's not located on the beach,... More

The ambiance is lovely. Garden setting with lots of white lights in the trees. It is over priced. Surf and Turf (Lobster and filet) is $80 usd. I ordered skirt steak and scallop to cut down on the cost. The steak was NOT skirt steak, but an over marinated ?? maybe round steak? The texture was similar to Arby's meat...kindof... More

Order off chalkboard. Peso to dollar rate is 12(Ouch). Seafood Trio and Chile Rellenos excellent. Quesadillas so so, Bill came in dollars we asked to have it changed to pesos. Charming garden. Expensive wine list. Expensive period but worth a special occasion.

If you go to Cabo and don't enjoy dinner at La Golandrina...you have missed out on a Cabo gem. The outdoor patio,with the trees all lit up and lanterns hanging...set the mood.But the best is...the food! Mostly seafood and all of it is delicious. It's a beautiful little garden with great food and great service.

Ok food, not special, not cheap. No menus and kind of an institutional presentation Easy location next to city club market. If you're in a pinch it's better than others, clean and presentable environment

This is not a restaurant to be missed! The selection is terrific and the range of seafood they offer is vast. Lobster is always a great choice too! We just returned from our 7th trip to Cabo and La Golandrina is always on our list for dinner. We have never missed having a lovely evening & dinner at this restaurant... More

A complete ripoff!!! AVOID AVOID AVOID We ate here last night, following the recommendation of a local who must have been drunk. FIrst sign something was wrong, very large, over-the-top, writing on the walls advertising the place. Second, no menus, with info about meals chalked on a board for easy revision, meaning raising prices often. Third, and what you don't... More
