Description: Welcome to 12 TribesCarlos Bonilla Souberbielle, our Executive Chef, would like to welcome you.The creative process applied to our menu will take you through a smorgasbord of flavors, textures and aromas that represent twelve different regions of Mexico; hence, our name. By understanding the local culinary culture of these regions, their ingredients and techniques, our chef creates a different perspective into what we call “Contemporary Mexican Cuisine”. By applying this understanding to his idea of Bohemian Cuisine – an unpretentious composition of different taste profiles – you’ll find a variety of different flavors perfectly balanced in each dish as you move from course to course. Simple appetizers will introduce you to the complexity of our main dishes,where ubiquitous hints of Mexico offer a new perspective on Mexican cooking. Of course, for a perfect ending, our decadent desserts are the perfect way to complement and truly enjoy your 12 Tribes experience.Thank you for joining us on this journey and….Buen provecho!

Our group of 6 hadn't initally planned to eat at 12 Tribes during our 7 night stay in Cabo but we're sure glad we found this excellent restaurant with its endearing wait staff, generous and talented manager, exceptional food, reasonable prices, and beautiful view. We stumbled onto 12 Tribes while looking for a restaurant that a friend / frequent Cabo... More

As an owner at the Casa Dorada, it is wonderful to have a Fantastic restaurant on property. I recently spent a week at the Casa Doarada with 9 other lady friends. We actually did the Meal plan and it worked out great for us. This was my 4th time at the resort and the 12 Tribes Restaurant has always had... More

The food at 12 Tribes is delicious! We were a party of 10 so we were able to try almost everything on the menu. Nothing disappointed! The service is excellent! Many thanks to Raul for the all of the 'extras'! Elias, Marco, Cesar, and Adal were our servers and they went out of their way to make our stay amazing!... More

I arrived with a group of 10 for a 7-day vacation. We ate at 12 Tribes 3 of the 7 nights. On the first night the service was a little slow but being used to the hustle and bustle of my daily life I liked the slower pace (after all we were now on Mexico time – relaxed!). I wanted... More

This restaurant is one of the reasons why Casa Dorada is our address while Visiting Cabo San Lucas. Las 12 Tribus is a great gourmet place with relaxed atmosphere and excellent service. To make things better ask for Adal, he is a master in accommodating the most difficult requests. He is just great.

The restaurant was by far the best of the best. Food was excellent, Service was great. Special Thanks to Raul, Marco, Elias, Armando, Cesar, Adal, and Marianna...All were special in their own way. They made us feel special and were fun to be around.

Had dinner here the night we arrived. My tuna was very good, served kind of strangely with maraschino cherries and peppers. Big fish portion and a friendly waiter who really wanted to get us drunk. A solid meal with a beautiful view.

My husband and I celebrated our first anniversary at 12 tribes Restaurant. We had our own private table set up on the beach to watch the sun set. The set up was beyond our expectations, a candle lit path to our table, a separate lounge area with bon fire pit to relax after dinner and even a candle lit heart... More
