Quality home-style meal

My husband and I ate here twice during our time in Todos Santos. We were really happy with the simple style of cooking - clearly they source good quality food and let those flavors shine. The first night both our fish dishes were overcooked, but the second time they came out perfect. Their... read more

Consistent, reliable, tasty seafood, soups, salads. Some chicken and meat but known for their seafood. Always fresh and nicely prepared. They pour a good size glass of wine and their margaritas are tops. Nice staff

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.

My daughter and I stopped there on the way into town for dinner Friday night February 13 after seeing the Olive Ridley turtles released. It was a very good dinner and we were very hungry. I ordered the yellowtail tuna with the Poblano pepper cream sauce it was delicious. I also ordered an organic spring mix salad which was very... More

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.
