Excellent Seafood, Exchange Rate Ripoff

Order off the chalkboard. The exchange rate is 12 Pesos to the dollar (Ouch!!), Seafood trio was good, excellent camerones and calamari, OK fish. Others liked the Chile Rellenos. Quesadellas blah. Of course the billed the gringos in dollars, we asked for it in Pesos. Nice touch to brink a... read more

Beautifully decorated and the food is amazing. We've recommended our friends and family to La Golondrina and everyone raves. It's a bit hidden, but well worth the find.

This was our fifth year visiting Cabo It was our fifth time at LA Golondrina. Located just a few blocks from our resort, it is a no-hassle choice for dinner on our day of arrival after flying 7.5 hours plus layover in Phoenix from Philadelphia. We check into our suite and head right to LA Golondrina where we can step... More

I can't say enough about this place. It's like an enchanted forest when you walk in and the food is really good. I go on every trip (twice a year).

Another out of the way Cabo restaurants that require a taxi ride to get there and back. A very pleasant outdoor restaurant very cleverly decorated but the harassment by the photographer and repeated visits by the band was a bit annoying. Food was average and little expensive. Service was typical Cabo, very friendly and efficient. With so many restaurants to... More

This is our second visit to this restaurant. The outdoor dining is truly beautiful with its trees wrapped in eye-catching lights. Unfortunately, the food for our party of 7 was bland, and not very tasty at all. We appreciated that they brought out our kid's meals quickly, but then our meals came over 45 minutes later, and by then the... More

Recommended by concierge at our hotel. Very prompt, efficient service. Ordered BBQ Ribs, Shrimp Diablo, Bean/Cheese Enchiladas and Flank Steak Dinner. We were first served a wonderful tostada salad, followed by a delicious vegetable soup. We were almost full by the time out entree arrived. The main courses were all delicious. We will definitely return when in Cabo. FYI--you do... More

I would not recommend this restaurant. It is way overpriced, they have no idea how to cook Sea Bass as it was overcooked and dry, and it looks like they put a wall around a parking lot and put two big trees in there for decoration. The concept of ordering from a Black Board was interesting but again, way overpriced.... More

We bring our friends to this restaurant for the great lobster and it is never disappointing. My husband says the ribs are the best in Cabo.
