Great open courtyard atmosphere

Food and service was very good. The courtyard was roomy and very well laid out. The staff was attentive and made sure we were satisfied with our dining experience.

Came across this restaurant by chance, but thoroughly enjoyed the meal here. It is set in a beautiful garden, with lights on the trees giving it a romantic feel. The meals come as platters with additional extras to try including a rather delicious carrot soup. I am a vegetarian and this was one of the few restaurants where I had... More

When we first came to Cabo, 30 yrs ago, La Golondrina was called The Trailer Park Restaurant. It has since moved and changed names, but not ownership! It is, and always has been fabulous! We now come to Cabo at least 6 times per year.....we never miss the opportunity to eat at La Golondrina. The atmosphere, the service and the... More

Best grilled of assorted meats and seafood in town. There is a variety of sauces to try with your meal. Service is fast and owners friendly. Portions are large and can be shared.

Owned by former owner of "The Trailer Park El Faro Viejo". Menu on wall, Service excellent, portions more than ample. We remembered the owner, Sissy, from the old place and spent much time talking with her. Great indoor/outdoor atmosphere with lights and traveling musicians. Definitely on our list for next year.

Ate here with my family recently. The food was delicious, especially the seafood combination. (The Lobster Dynamite --- AMAZING!!!) The ambiance was wonderful - you dine outside with twinkle lights. We loved it!

This restaurant was recommended to us by a couple of friends of ours. We have now eaten there twice and it was really terrific. If you don't like sitting outside and enjoying a beautiful evening surrounded by trees with subtle white lights in them all, then you won't enjoy their fresh, succulent lobster either. The wait staff is very kind... More

I took my girlfriend here for our anniversary, and the food was very good. We had a lot of plans that night so we went early, and that was a mistake because the night lighting is far more charming than the daylight experience.

I have been going here since 1997. You can beat the taste of their lobster. I get the sampler plate, crab, lobster, calamari, shrimp and swordfish. That dish in USA would be $300. the restaurant is beautiful with twinkling lights in the trees and the best wait staff!!
