Went there with my house-sitter who loves camerones and he was happy with the dish. I had the fish of the they (yellow-tail) with the peanut sauce. Nice but the pieces of fish could heve been a little larger. Anyway, the price is reasonable and with the nice weather, eating El Fresco is a bonus in February.

Great little downtown restaurant. There were 4 of us who all ordered something different. We all shared and each meal was excellent! Would definitely go back!

Really different spot. Loved seeing how different Mexico is from Canada! Neat outdoor bathroom. I had a salad with shrimp and there was probably 25 pieces of shrimp. Great value!

after a good experience at another Restaurant of the town we decided to get to this place but there was good attention maybe it was that we were the only customers their food was good so I'll give them another chance

Great restaurant about 45 minutes to an hour northwest of Cabo. Found this with a referral from our tour guide; Carlos Jiminez. What a gem of a find for the 7 of us! Everyone's meals and drinks were fabulous. Prices were low to low middle for what you received but the food was excellent as was the presentation.

Best fish tacos I have ever had in my life. Also, I used to hate flan, and now, thanks to El Zaguan, I love it.
