We asked a local on the street near the marina where he takes HIS family for dinner and he pointed us to La Mesa Poblana. What an excellent place! It was not crowded at all but the food was excellent as were the drinks. True mexican fare at a totally reasonable price! If we return to Cabo we will certainly... More

My wife and I were staying at an all-inclusive so we didn't eat out a lot but when we did we made sure to ask a local for something more authentic than the touristy places like Cabo Wabo and Hard Rock. He suggested La Mesa Poblana and he wasn't wrong! The food was great (no, we didn't get sick so... More

For a restaurant locale recommended by the locals, La Mesa Poblana is a must! The service was outstanding and the authentic food was delicious. We always ask the locals where they like to eat, not just the usual eateries along the marina. The owner, a Christian, has truly created a jewel!

I liked the food but I want to try something else next time. Some of the food temp. was only warm. I know we had a some what of a large party but the service could have been a little quicker. The drinks were good and the waiters were very nice and a few were in training. My grand kids... More

Friendly staff. Excellent food. Cute restaurant with character and charisma and open air seating. Everything reasonably priced. We went for dinner one night and enjoyed it so much that we went for breakfast the following morning. Their specialty is mole sauce, but we didn't have it as it's not a sauce we typically like. Instead, my husband had the albodingas... More

This is the 3rd time we have been to this local restaurant. I want the recipe for the perfect Mole they serve!! Fresh margaritas and authentic mexican food with flavors that are spectacular. It is all about the local places for us and this is at the top of our list. It is always pretty busy, especially after Sunday mass... More

Nice location near the marina. The best enchiladas EVER! Try the Suizas and the Fajitas. The next time to Cabo this place is a must.

We needed a place to have lunch while we were in Cabo and just stumbled upon Poblanas. The staff were super hospitable and the food was excellent. I'm not a big fajita guy because I think they often lack flavor, but these were delivered in a steaming pot of goodness. More of a stew and the sauce was to die... More
