Best Shrimp in Cabo!

The best shrimp in Cabo by far and very reasonable price. The staff was very friendly, fast, excellent service, and their new location is very clean. We have been to the shrimp factory when it was at the old location as well and this location is nice too. Norman has done a great job as manager! :)

We enjoyed the casual atmosphere of the shrimp Factory. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The lobster and shrimp were very very good and so reasonable. They only advice is to stay away from the steak. As we have found many places in Mexico, the beef is not what we are used to here in the States. It is often... More

Just a block off of the marina, the Shrimp Factory was a great find. The shrimp and lobster tacos were incredibly delicious and very reasonably priced. Norman's Rosemary Rice Pilaf was an awesome side to compliment the tacos. Our kids want to return to Cabo just to eat here again.

Ate dinner at the shrimp factory as we were trying different restaurants in Cabo. Should have known it wouldn't be that great as we were the only ones there. Would not recommend this for a dinner. Food was not that great and price was hihh.

We had not eaten at the Shrimp Factory for several years. This year was a pleasant surprise. We went mid range in the menu, shrimp tacos. The shrimp were grilled to perfection, the rice was pleasantly seasoned. Norman, our head waiter explained with their new location, they were using new recipes. They definitely are a marked improvement over our prior... More

Visited Cabo for my 50th birthday. Aside from the timeshare pitches daily, I had a blast. The first restaurant we visited was The Shrimp Factory. We met Norman (manager) and Arturo (bartender). No words for the level of friendliness and helpfulness. So great that we went back almost every day. The fresh margaritas and stuffed avocados were amazing. Norman also... More

We stopped for lunch. The lobster & shrimp tacos were delicious! My husband & I enjoyed the sides as well. The service is exceptional. For a lovely spot to sit and relax, we highly recommend trying a Pacifico with your tacos. Norman was great!
