We ate lunch at El Zaguan and had the most perfectly cooked shrimp. The bitter orange margaritas were soooo good!! We each had two. I wish we had one more day and we would have gone back for more El Zaguan.

Nice little place with wonderfully fresh produce and seafood. The guacamole was some of the best we've ever had and the shrimp were cooked perfectly! If we are ever in Todos Santos again, we will be back.

My family spent our last night eating a terrific meal at Fonda El Zaguan. Carlos, our server, reviewed the specials and menu items in great detail and was very friendly. The food was outstanding. Between the 4 of us, we had lobster, grilled yellowtail and shrimp, and sautéed scallops. It was all extremely fresh and had awesome flavor. The herbs... More

The servers were a delight at El Zaguan and had the food to back it up. Great place, ceviche was fantastic, atmosphere was welcoming and food was the cherry on top. Highly recommended.

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

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.
