We've been vacationing in Cabo for years and Gardenias was recommended by locals. Best fish tacos ever and because the prices are so reasonable we sample cactus tacos, several types of seafood tacos and fantastic margueritas. Friendly staff. Side street, view of the hospital but great food, extremely reasonable prices.

Our group visited for lunch. Best quesadilla we've had! Great value! Like the way food is served with the condiments on the table.

We have loved Gardenias for years and again today we had our fill of fresh fish tacos! Not fancy but full of ambience, very clean and reasonably priced. You can order several different types and specify if you want corn or flour tortillas- don't expect them to be loaded with toppings condiments are on the table to load yourselves. Find... More

This is off the main drag thank god - it was quiet, fun, and has some of the best tacos in Cabo. Great review by a food critic led us there. Loved the toppings dishes for the tacos. Great price. Good Margs. We went three times in a week!

The tacos were good. The margaritas were large and the service was great. Probably not my favorite taco spot but it was still good.

Located in an assuming cinder block building, Gardenias serves some of the freshest fish tacos you can find. Don't let the setting scare you away! A very casual, old-school open air taco restaurant in the tradition of old Baja. Make sure and load up your taco with all the fixings brought to the table, and don't skip the special Gardenias...

Gardenias is a low cost great place for lunch. The taco's are delicious and the beer is cold! Beware of the table top condiments. The peppers are really HOT! Don't be turned off by the simplistic facility, the food more than makes up for it!

Came here for lunch one day with my boyfriend with high expectations after reading a bunch of reviews. Perhaps we were just in a bad mood because it was crazy hot or because it took far longer to get there than we expected, but we both thought the tacos were just okay. We got fish tacos, a pork rind taco,... More
