Gardenias is a bit more off the beaten path however its a clean and well run restaurant with very good food. Cash only, no chips offered but excellent tacos and salsa's. I wouldn't hesitate to return. Al Pastor was my favorite.

Don't walk away without ordering the ceviche -- it is out of this world! And the fish tacos are great, you get just the fish and the tortilla, then you build your own taco with 10 different toppings and sauces! So fresh!

We were in Cabo for a week and this is by far the best food we had the whole time. It was a nice break from the expensive tourist restaurants. It was the best fish tacos I've ever had! We loved all of the condiments and sauces they brought out! We went back numerous times while we were there. Unfortunately,... More

This is a great place to have a casual meal in a unique spot with no pretense. It has been in business for many years and has plenty of parking on the side and room for about 50 customers. My shrimp tacos were delicious and nice sized. Margarita was large and tasty but I recall it was about 6-8 dollars.... More

Gardenias was recommended to my daughter-in-law. So we decided to try it. There were five of us. Each one of us loved our Burritos and Tacos. Like others have said they bring out lots of sauces for you to try. I can't begin to say how wonderful the service was. They didn't have my wine so they went to another... More

We were looking for something less touristy after being on the marina and we found it at Tacos Gardenias. The staff was very friendly and we ordered way too much food expecting smaller portions. I love that they bring out a spread of condiments and sauces so you can customize your tacos. Also, the ceviche was delicious.

Amazing. We actually learned about this place from Tripadvisor. It was within walking distance from our hotel so we decided to check it out. The food was nothing short of amazing, and affordable! Between the two of us we ordered the fish tacos, shredded beef tacos, and shrimp tacos. They come plain but they gave us two large dishes with... More

Excellent fish tacos. All the tacos are great. My kids got chicken and barbacoa. My husband got a great ceviche. Super reasonable prices, authentic Mexican food, very clean.
