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!

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

We stayed at Casa Dorada and had a wonderful meal at 12 Tribes one night. The food was very good and reasonable in price. The service, atmosphere, and music were amazing. My wife and son had the fajita special and I let my waiter select my appetizer and entre. He recommended the aspragus and fish. The appetizer was awesome and... More

We went for surf & turf night. The meal was great! It was three course with two glasses of wine. You cant beat the view either.

Mexican buffet is great and very good value, not so good for the BBQ special, which we had on my birthday which was very disappointing.

We enjoyed breakfast and lunch from this place while poolside at Casa Dorada. They have great food and service, and the prices are reasonable. Nice place to have at your finger tips if you don't feel like leaving the resort, we enjoyed 12 Tribes.

There were five of us for dinner last Thursday. Elias was our waiter and he had a couple of young helpers as well (sorry I don't know their names). The food was absolutely wonderful, and the service was spectacular. The guy playing the guitar and singing was great as well. We had so much fun. It was the best night... More

I am a timeshare owner at Casa Dorada, Medano Beach. I have visited twice a year for 7 years and have never enjoyed the food before. A new chef makes all the difference. The food is top notch! Even if you are staying at another hotel, do not miss this hidden gem on Medano Beach in back of the "Mango... More

12 Tribes was located in our lodging at Casa Dorada. It has spectacular views as it sits above the beach looking towards lands end. We had dinner there one night and had a very good meal and good service. We chose to dine more off site as we wanted to experience more of downtown Cabo and other local nearby restaurants.... More
