Best restaurant in Todos Santos

Expensive yes, but the best restaurant in that part of Baja. Order the Lobster Ravioli, unbelievable ... but must be in season. Great garden setting, great service. Don't let the simple entrance put you off. We go back there every year.

Our first journey to Cafe Santa Fe. The lobster ravioli was the best I have ever had! Delicious! My husband had the sashimi which melted in his mouth! He is a "ginger" hog and the staff was very generous with the ginger. We would go there again, in a minute. The garden setting in the center of the restaurant is... More

Cafe Santa Fe makes my life better. Members of our family have been dining here with pleasure (and frequency) for almost 20 years. When we are not in Todos Santos, and traveling in various places, we often crave many of their dishes (fresh fish carpaccio, ravioli in butter sage, linguini in gorgonzola, lobster ravioli, fresh grilled vegetables, etc.). Their staff... More

We had a very good lunch, I had a seafood medley in an Alfredo sauce, and my wife had red snapper. Both were cooked to perfection with excellent sauces. A Caesar salad was also very good. The wine selection was decent. The atmosphere was fantastic, a pleasant garden patio with a shaded cool breeze, blocked out the mid 80's heat... More

A bit of a trip from Cabo up the Pacific Ocean side, but worth the hour drive....the lobster ravioli is known well outside Mexico. The marlin carpaccio and scallop carpaccio are incredible. The squid ink pasta is exceptional! Love the huge grilled shrimp!!! YUMMY!

This is one of the best Italian dining experiences, not just in Baja, but anywhere. While the restaurant itself is very nice and the staff are great, what really puts this experience over the edge is the incredible food. Two of us split the caprese salad, the fish carpaccio (bonita that night) and the lobster ravioli (all accompanied by the... More

Great ambiance and service. The marlin carpaccio was to die for. The bread/rolls were also delicious. Will go there every year!

Cafe Santa Fe is at the top of our dining list each time we visit Todos Santos. We tend to be there over holidays and this is our go-to spot for Christmas Eve or NY Eve meals because it has a feeling of fine dining and celebration. We always request the interior patio because it feels more quaint than the... More

It was a pretty spot to sit in the evening, and the sushi was very good (but not as good as Copa Cocina). The margaritas, like almost everywhere else we went, were too limey. This is likely the most expensive place to eat in Todos Santos.

We spent ages on a Sunday night driving around Todos Santos looking for a restaurant that was open. We were happy to find the Santa Fe as it is attractive, clean and people seemed happy (staff and customers). But the food was disappointing. Nothing particularly to recommend it and the bill was quite high.
