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!

Great Wine recommendations

Our server was well versed in wine… He was excellent. Adal was his name .. I highly recommend you request him… He offered us his favorite dishes as well as making additional wine selections that were excellent and we plan to research them upon our return to Huntintong Beach California

You usually don't expect a hotel resort restaurant to offer a fine dining experience, but Twelve Tribes certainly does. Situated at the rear of Casa Dorada, it overlooks peaceful Medano Beach and the famous Arch. At sunset, the view is breathtakingly romantic. Add to that the flaming torches, and formally attired wait staff and you have a dream setting. Add... More

This is our 2nd visit to Casa Dorada and multiple visits to 12 Tribes. Maybe it was an off season but food was just ok and restaurant was empty. We did try it a 2nd time this trip, but was disappointed. The wait staff was pleasant but service needs work. We did enjoy the Sushi but it must have been... More

Again great service. We had Pizza and Sushi! Desserts are wonderful with local coffee. Amazing views. Built recently and blocks the ocean view from the lower rooms of the hotel. Wood oven is great!

Want to have an awesome dining experience elevated above Medano beach? This is the place. Just a heads up, remember to pick you entree according to where your are, hint...spare ribs in Cabo may not meet the minimum standards, but the fresh fish of the day grilled, Yeah!
