Visited La Mesa Poblana on a recommendation for a place that isn't for the tourists. The restaurant sits a couple of streets off the main drag, making it a nice quiet place. As recommended, I tried the Mole Enchilada. The mole was a flavorful sauce, very rich and thick with a slow build to heat... read more

The guacamole was freshly prepared in front of us and then promptly devoured with the fresh chips. We had a mix of vegetarians and meat eaters and all had a great meal. Even the hamburgers were great. Good french fries. Great margaritas in a very pleasant setting.

Local spot, awesome service. Margaritas were so fresh- best we probably had all week. Verde chicken was very tasty. Steak didn't agree with my son's stomach- otherwise a 5 star choice for me.

'La Mesa Poblana' was the best restaurant we've been to in Los Cabos. Not only the place itself had a good atmosphere, the service was extraordinary. I've lived in Mexico for 4 years, and the Guacamole in 'La Mesa Poblana' was one of the best I've eaten. For the most part, the place is fantastic, but the prices are a... More

This place prepares some of the best guacamole you will ever have. Or shall i say the freshest. They make it right in front of you and serve it with fresh chips. Breakfast was great and they make fresh squeezed orange juice. Lunch and dinner are phenomenal. This place prepares great food for a great price. We ate at this... More

We had a gray, drizzly day to deal with and needed an appropriate lunch. La Mesa Poblana was definitely the place to enjoy it! They serve food in the style of the Mexican state of Puebla. My wife ordered pozole, a slightly spicy soup that features chicken or pork and hominy. It can be ordered "blanco" (white, probably chicken broth)... More

Every time we go to Cabo, we always search out new places to eat. This place was recommended to us by our personal guide, Carlos, whom we met at the marina. (PS - if you want a great personal tour guide search my reviews for Carlos Jiminez) It was incredibly delicious and the prices were exceptional for what we had... More

After a day on the beach, we told our tour drive that we wanted some authentic Mexican food for lunch. He dropped us off at La Mesa Poblano. The restaurant was small and quaint, we were a group of 13 and the were happy to accommodate our group. The menu was extensive and they serve breakfast as well as lunch... More
