Another Great Meal!!

The food here is very tasty with more than average sized portions. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly. The prices were more than fair for our food and drinks. The fish was fresh caught that very day. The cook grilled it to perfect and the vegetable were tender without being mushy. They... read more

We were visiting Todos Santos from Cabo San Lucas for the day and were looking for a little spot to grab some good fish tacos since our hotel staff told us we should eat fish here. Fonda El Zaguan did not disappoint. We were served chips and salsa right away. Food was prepared quickly and tasted good. They have a... More

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 house-made ice cream was really delicious, too!... 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.
