We have been coming to Cabo San Lucas for many years and always come to Golondrina at least once each time we are here. Never again. As many reviewers have pointed out, the prices have been sky rocketing and the quality has been deteriorating. My son-in-law wanted to eat here over my minor objection. This time though I think I...

Although we stay in an all-inclusive hotel, always go to La Glonondrina since we LOVE this place! The food and service is wonderful! The atmosphere is very pretty since you sit in a patio type atmosphere, under trees that are lit up. The lobster is wonderful! If there are 2 of you, always get a "Share Plate" for one person...

Offered popsicles for dessert after spending hundreds of dollars while dishes from main course are still on the table and not been removed yet. never offered any other dessert or coffee. given bill. told had...

There was a lot of hype around this restaurant. The people were nice, but the tab for 2 entrees and 4 mixed drinks was $160 - ish US !!!! The drink tab alone was $12 per drink. This is Manhattan NYC prices!!! The ambiance was good. But there are dozens of restaurants much much better in every way. Avoid this... More

My family and I tried different restaurants before this one and this restaurant had the best food. We are very happy with service and the great food. From ribs to shrimp enchiladas and fresh fish plates.. All were outstanding and the atmosphere is beautiful. Thank you!

My husband and I visited the original location ten years ago, and identified this place as the same place by looking at the outdoor menus, etc. and reviews. The food was good, but not excellent as it was years ago. Also know that they have changed locations and are no longer in their trailer park, which I didn't find as... More

Made a reservation for a large party of 28, we traveled with this large party to all Cabo restaurants during our seven day stay, and La Golondrina had the worst customer service and attitude. It was very disappointing considering I was the one that recommended this restaurant based on past experience. They were so annoyed from the minute we walked... More

Nothing special about the atmosphere, except that its outside. You order off a chalkboard. We didn't realize each entree came with a salad and a bowl of lentil soup until it was served to us. Had we known this, we would've ordered less food or split a meal. I ate seared ahi tuna and husband had sea bass, Mexican style.... More

Another great meal and wonderful setting. Ate too much but really enjoyed this place again. It has become a must stop when we visit Cabo.

Loved this cute setting at La Golondrina ... also known as the 'trailer park.' Not sure why it's referred to as the 'trailer park' since it's not in a trailer or around any trailers. You order off a menu 'board.' I had lobster. Probably the best I have ever had. My husband had lobster and ribeye. Delicious! We thought about... More
