Food was ok, just ok. Very Expensive. Hey you are not in Paris, NYC or Tokio to pay those prices...and while service was fine, the food did not recall a good chef. Definitely I would not return back, ever.

The Catch of the day was prepared superbly. We always enjoy the courtyard setting surrounded with lush vegetation. The homemade breads and focaccia are excellent. The fresh fish and shrimp are superb. It is a little more expensive than the average restaurant but the quality of the food is worth the price.

This is in Todos Santos which is about 45 minutes from Cabo. We had lunch on their patio. It is just as good as when we ate lunch there 13 years ago. The lobster ravioli is the best. There were Italians in our group who were very impressed.

I used to be a big fan of Cafe Santa Fe. We revisited during the Todos Santos Music Festival. We started with a special appetizer, Yellowtail Sashimi. This was excellent. They did nothing with the fish, only cut into very this slices but it was delicious. For main entrees a They had on Special the Wahoo fillet which a couple... More

This was our second visit to Cafe Sante Fe..it is about 1 hour from Los Cabos on a brand new highway. We were pleased last year and felt the same this year. Lot's of cute shops thoughout the town, but this is the real reason for going there.

It was an enjoyable meal with a comfortable setting. I would have rated it higher, but the price of the meal was too much.

Really nice place, close to the church in Todos Santos. Super friendly and effective service. Really good Italian food. Super fresh and tons of taste. The grilled vegetables plate and starter caprese salat was the best!

Nice restaurant right on the zocalo but the prices were double what one can find at other equally great restaurants in Todos Santos. For my money (literally) I would head to Tres Galline if you hanker for excellent Italian.
