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!

The restaurant was virtually empty at 6:30pm during spring break...for a reason. The veggie pasta was smothered in red sauce that tasted like it came straight from a can. You could find bits of asparagus if you searched but no mushroom or artichokes - not that one could taste them even if identified given the sauce. The fish looked like... More

This place has nice ambience and nice views. It's too bad that it is so close to Mango Deck though. Mango Deck really detracts from the dining experience, particularly when all of the spring breakers are there. The good news is that things quiet down quite a bit at Mango Deck somewhere between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. So, if... More

I brought 2 separate groups of 30 people to 12 Tribes over a 2 week period in February 2014. The service, the food, the ambiance and the music were fabulous each night. We also went on a third occasion with another couple. Each time was as good as the last. My fiancé had the pork chop all 3 times and... More

If you are solely reviewing this place on the view it's 5 stars. However the food during dinner was not good. Nobody in our party of four enjoyed their meal. On the menu they say they are trying to give their modern take on Mexican cuisine from throughout the country. The food here is American with some Mexican subtleness. It's... More

We stumbled across this restaurant after heading to The Office next door and it was so crowded and had such a wait we said no way and left. This was next door and just decided to check it out. It was WONDERFUL. The menu was primarily seafood/sushi and pizza/pasta. Which worked really well for our group of some non-seafood eaters.... More

My husband loved the roasted chicken and I enjoyed the sea bass. Service was very gratious. The night we ate there every table was full so I would recommend reservations.

Having booked a Valentines Day reservation through open table about 1 month before our trip, I was excited about this restaurant. HOWEVER, when we arrived that evening, the first impression wasnt' good. We were told that the restaurant was closed because of a wedding. Really, did someone just walk up and say hey, I'm getting married tomorrow and want to... More

We just came back from a wonderful week in Cabo San Lucas and Casa Dorada. We thoroughly enjoyed the food at the 12 Tribes. We had two romantic dinners there and the service was excellent. My wife had the Chilean Sea Bass which she loved and I enjoyed the Lamb chops on our first night. We enjoyed the views and... More
