"La Golondrina" is one of the original restaurants of Cabo San Lucas. Set on a plot that dates back to the 1880's, this traditional (primarily) seafood restaurant can be relied on for professional service, very fine food, and a very relaxed ambiance in it's uncrowded, spacious outdoor premises. You are encouraged to "mix and match" combinations from their very wide... More

We have visited Cabo San Lucas multiple times over the years and always make it a point to visit this restaurant. Our recent trip was no exception. Our favorite is the dinner for two that includes lobster and all sorts of other things. I think it is some of the best lobster we have had and we usually don't like... More

For over 20 years we have been dining here. Open air under trees, you can enjoy large area seating for big family groups. Menu has everything from Mexican to Lobster. Fantastic to order the platter for "two" with extra plates. They will feed 4 adults with no problem. If you love Lobster, order the 5lb platter! After dinner, order the... More

This place is absolutely beautiful. We had a New Year's Eve dinner here. The seafood is great. Many tables had huge lobsters. I had the ribs and scallops Mexican dinner. Excellent. My son had the sea bass dinner... It was a huge piece of sea bass! You must visit this restaurant.

When you first enter the courtyard you think you have stepped into a fairy tale! There are tiny twinkling lights in all the trees and it is absolutely breathtaking. The food equals in quality. Everything is fresh and displayed for you to see and select. The "kitchen" is outdoors so you can see everything and the will cook to your... More

Every time we come to Cabo this is the first restaurant we go to. The ambiance of the outdoor restaurant with tree cover is breathtaking. The food is really good and you can create your own special if you like. Love this restaurant and every visit to Cabo is a dinner at LaGolandrina.

If you like poor service, mediocre food along with excessive prices, this place is for you. While the courtyard seating is lovely, everything else was very disappointing. One person in our party had a rack of ribs that was so overcooked it resembled cardboard.

Try the WOW shrimp (and dynamite), ribs, steak....it's all crazy good. Service was impeccable. Servers took extra care for my sleeping toddler by pulling over chairs. Flaming coffee (mex coffee) and the banana dessert was super neat to watch. Ambiance is lovely. All fine restaurants in Cabo can be pricey but the food quality here was outstanding as was the...

The food was pretty darn great, but comes at a price. Meals range from $20-90. Went with a big group of people on Christmas and our bill was $1600 for 18 people ($300 of that was the bar bill). The atmosphere is just okay and definitely doesn't match their price tag, no views of the water. FYI Amex is not... More

Despite the recent hurricane in Cabo, this place appeared to be untouched… And I highly recommend it for an exceptional experience in dining… Especially their steaks and seafood… All at reasonable prices with excellent service and an amazing atmosphere in a very handy location. Don't miss it if you're in Cabo San Lucas at any time !
