After a day at Cerritos Beach and a nice stroll around the town with two teenagers, we were fortunate enough to ask a local where to eat dinner. What a find! We sat at a sidewalk table and felt like we were in The Mexican version of a Provencel town. It was delightful. The guacamole was some I the best... More

Enjoyed a lovely dinner at this reasonably priced restaurant in the heart of Todos Santos. Everything was very fresh and delicious.

Five us had a delicious fish-centric meal in the courtyard at El Zaguan - a small place located in the main part of downtown. Everything is freshly prepared, so don't be in a hurry. Attentive and friendly staff.

I love this restaurant! We ordered fish with mango beurre blanc and shrimp with basil butter. We sat on the sidewalk, and the waiter was very attentive and professional. The wine selection was good. Excellent dinner, fresh fish and salad, much cheaper than other nice restaurants in Todos Santos. I would definitely eat here again.

My wife and I had lunch here on our final day in Todos Santos and really liked it. I had fish tacos. When they came out there was a tortilla and grilled fish...no extras. In just a few seconds the waiter brought out a large tray with slaw, pico de gallo, and red/green chilis to dress up the taco. It... More

Just eating lunch here now. Shame the Boss is away cause they are serving jarred Sakai (Pace) and bagged corn chips! Always good. Just not perfect.

We enjoyed our mahi mahi in basil butter sauce very much. Unlike many restaurants in Todos Santos, which are over-priced IMO, the price was quite reasonable. The service (a young man) was very pleasant. It's a small, very casual place, with a couple of outdoor tables on the main street. Menu is limited, but definitely worth a visit for fresh,... More

The service here was both slow and rude. It took over an hour to get our meal (for only 2 people) and the staff never checked on us once. The waitress didn't even speak when she took our order, just starred with a mean look on her face. Food was decent but nothing special. Had to chase down the waitress... More

Overall, this restaurant is well-priced for fresh, creative seafood spot with a great romantic ambiance. The daily specials (we had ahi tuna marinated in soy and sesame served with fresh papaya and cilantro) was well priced and really, really delicious - almost a fusion feel. It was served with rice and salad, which were both light, fresh and balanced the... More
