This is an overpriced, overrated eatery with pretensions of grandeur. The northern Italian cuisine is beautiful on the menu but less so on the table. Take a large wad of cash; you'll need it.

This is what I call a yuppy restaurant. If you want black squid ink pasta this place is your cup of tea. If you like your bread served with vinegar and oil in lieu of butter you'll love this place. Get a bank loan before you eat here. You'll need it.

Another great restaurant in Todos Santos that will not disappoint, with a lovely patio outside and great service. I came with a group for business, so our meal was preselected and pre-paid; I did not check pricing, but can attest to the good quality of the food, very fresh, nicely prepared.

Beautiful and pricey. A surprisingly spa, temple-like environment that you walk into off the church and town plaza. A Mexican Colonial Style Surprise. But the servers were kind and excellent and the Lobster Ravioli was to die for. The Sage Butter Ravioli was also killer. I can taste it in my dreams.

I agree with many of the reviews posted, a very fine restaurant, though trendy and relatively over priced. If you want to be in a chique and trendy place, go for it. Great food. However if being seen at the "right place", and paying twice the price of comparable restaurants in town isn't your thing, just go around the corner,... More

Wasn't looking for Italian, but ended up here and had a good meal in the lovely garden area. Very attentive, but not hovering, service. On the expensive end.

This is a super Italian style restaurant with super appetizers, a great wine list and excellent entrée choices. I had the caprice salad with shrimps and calamari as a starter. Then main course fresh Tuna rare which was just outstanding. You want gourmet eating this is the place. Everything was done just right to perfection. The service was special. My... More

It's a bit out of the way, but very worth the trip from Los Cabos toTodos Santos to experience a great lunch or dinner. This garden setting classy restaurant serves great seafood, pastas, and salads in a cool shaded patio. Clean, comfortable, and with great service, it is hard to beat. We enjoyed fresh fish and scallop carpaccio, insalata caprese,... More

A trip to Todos Santos isn't complete without dinner at Cafe Santa Fe. I have never had a bad meal at this delightful restaurant. Try the lobster ravioli - wonderful.
