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.

My gf and I have eaten at el Zaguan for the past three nights. We have yet to be disappointed. The first day, we ordered the fish tacos (for lunch). They were so good that we ended up returning for dinner and again ordered the fish tacos. Suffice it to say, the fish tacos are delicious. The second night they... More

Their peanut sauce on fish of the day is outstanding. Their tacos come with condiments so one can make their own.

We had the camarones cubanos and were not disappointed - shrimp with peppers, onions and tomatoes. So tasty and fresh. Lots of food, including homemade tortillas and bread. Cute dining area with nice lighting. Fair prices also.

A group of 4 friends went to dinner here and were very disappointed with our dining experience. The drinks were, in a word, terrible. The sangria and the mango margarita were literally so un-drinkable that we had to order another set of drinks without drinking the first ones (and still paid for the ones we didn't drink). The waiter was... More

I would like to offer a sincere apology on behalf of El Zaguán and I’m very sorry that you were disappointed with your dining experience. I would also like to point out a few things to provide a more complete picture of the situation. I am not sure why the drinks were referred as terrible, since the table also had,... More

Had dinner at El Zaguan and it was fantastic. We had delicious fresh fish (mahi mahi) with a cilantro butter sauce, tasty Camarones (shrimp) in a Poblano sauce and the kids had mango strawberry smoothies that were fantastic. The food was very fresh and the prices were good. They also took Visa…many restaurants in Baja don't! Carlos was our server... More

During a recent trip to Cabo we rented a car and drove to Todos Santos for a day to experience "authentic Mexico". Our first stop in Todos Santos was for lunch at El Zaguan - an excellent meal for the whole family. The best though were my fish tacos! I had eaten fish tacos several times during my time in...

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.
