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

This has been my 5th trip to Cabo. I have always enjoyed this restaurant, this time the food was good as usually but service was lacking. Wrong drinks and long wait to get our order in. It was not at all busy. Nice atmosphere with outdoor sitting. General note about restaurants in Cabo. Be careful giving your credit card as... More

One of my favorite restaurants on Cabo either had a really bad night or changed ownership. The setting is still wonderful-outdoors under the limbs of an ancient tree. The first glass of red wine was undrinkable-not corked, but nasty! It was replaced by another that was passable. As the evening wore on, two more glasses of red were ordered, but... More

Make a reservation for 8 pm and enjoy the romance and lights of this wonderful courtyard resturant. Big menu with lots of meat and fish choices. Ok everyday preparation, but not real gormet quality. Slightly over price for what you receive. More of a tourist spot than local favorite.

Hidden away behind a garden wall on Paseo del Pecador is La Golandrina. Three years ago, on our first trip to Cabo San Lucas, arriving tired from our 12 hours of travel from Philadelphia, we were looking for a small, stress-free restaurant in which we could decompress with some food and cold drinks, close to our resort. We didn't want... More

We got here by mistake but are glad we did. The staff was gracious and helpful, the outdoor setting was fabulous and the food was spectacular.

We picked this restaurant to go to for our Valentine's Dinner with another couple. They were very gracious & seated us, even though they couldn't find the reservation I made that morning. Excellent staff! Wonderful food! I had one of the specials - 1 1/2 lb lobster and and enchilada. That was a small sized lobster! They declined to do... More

This place is probably tied for my favorite restaurant in Cabo. It isnt really what you expect when you go to Mexico, but I do love the atmosphere and the food is pretty good. Essentially, this is a steakhouse in Cabo. You sit outside, underneath a couple old trees that provide the canopy with white "christmas lights" strung up for... More
