Very Good food

The setting is beautiful. We have eaten here over many years. This year we were a bit disappointed in the quality of some of the dishes.

Beautiful setting in an outdoor dining room. A large menu selection is written on several boards and is explained by a dedicated server (who speaks wonderful english). When we asked questions about some of the items, she offered samples and got opinions directly from the chef for us. Tommy Lee was our amazing bar server. The food was great. Order... More

Beautiful outdoor garden restaurant. Menu board is on the wall, so you look at that and then place your order. There is someone there to assist with any questions regarding the menu. Great service. Good food. I had chicken enchiladas and hubby had bacon wrapped bbq shrimp and they were HUGE! It was just such a pretty setting, with lights... More

LA Golondrina is a restaurant that the Cabo locals like and so do the tourists who can find the restaurant. The food is very good and very inexpensive. Not fancy, just good.

This restaurant offers menu selections for special need diets, including gluten free corn tortillas. Fresh local seafood tops the enormous menu, but the steak and chicken are also delightful. The bread pudding rivals any I have tried in the states and my husband savored the homemade New York style cheesecake topped with a yummy fresh berry sauce. In one weeks... More

I had been here many times but it had been many years since my last fabulous meal here. The only changes were an increase in price and an increase in portion! We could have split meals! The bill for 4 was $450 US and we had enough left over for another meal! The scallops were rich and tender. The lobster,... More

We visited this restaurant last time in cabo and had fond memories. The recent reviews were mixed but we decided to give them the benefit of the doubt. They have private label Mexican bottled water that they charged $4.00 for! For all I know they put the restaurant tap water in the bottle! I don't mind paying for water...but a... More
