Pleasant spot, friendly service, good food

Ate here twice while staying in the Todos Santos area. Tasty fish, great guacamole and a delicious tomato fish soup. Was able to find a reasonable chardonnay here too. My son loved their smoothie.

Was warmly greeted and immediately served complimentary chips and salsa. Ordered the shrimp and avocado salad, which was incredibly fresh and a generous portion size. They also offer free Wifi. Highly recommend!

I was recommended this place by a local. It's right in the centre of the historic town centre and is a pretty little restaurant with a palapa roof, tables out the front and a nice courtyard area out the back. The staff were lovely and friendly and so helpful choosing what to eat as the menu was great and full... More

Yummy fishball stew and margaritas. Super nice staff. Tough to park out front with the street all torn up but that should be fixed soon.

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!
