My wife and I went here for the fish tacos. I asked for, "fried" and expected battered. They came out pan seared. The food was, "OK" I won't come back for the food. The waiter was a very nice guy. The Guacamole was very good. A little too spicy and when we asked to switch out they did with no... More

We received a tip from a local that shared the shuttle from the airport on our arrival that this is the best authentic Mexican food in town. Our lunch was incredible - high quality ingredients and flavors only found in traditional cooking. And the proprietors here are very friendly.

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 . Verde Enchilada was the... 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
