Visited restaurant on Sunday evening for a light dinner and drinks. The food was fresh and tasty, and "can't drive 55 " cocktail was just what the doctor ordered. Server was very friendly and all seemed to be shaping up to be a great dinner experience. Shortly after returning to our resort I noticed my very expensive sunglasses were missing.... More

This is a must if you visit Cabo. We spent happy hour outside there, then continued inside for live music. The inside opened at 8:00, but the music didn't start until about 10:30. The crowd was having a great time, and there were many age groups represented.

We had a light lunch here. We both ate a few fish tacos, which were excellent. There was great music playing and it was a fun place to kick back and have a quick bite to eat and a drink. We also had strawberry margaritas that were cool and refreshing. We sat downstairs, outside in front of the bar. There... More

We went around 10pm and was still slow. Seems like the party doesn't start until 11-12 at night. I got a blue drink and it was awful. Couldn't finish. Would prob stick to beer or something other then the girly drinks! Good music!

The atmosphere is great and every night starting at 10:30pm there is a cover band. The cover band we heard on a Thursday night so AMAZING-the lead singer had some of the best pipes I've ever heard! Yes it's a high priced and touristy destination-don't go there expecting an authentic, local experience. However if you keep this in mind you'll... More

When I knew we were going to Cabo for our honeymoon, I knew we had to go to Cabo Wabo! I really liked the atmosphere of this bar and restaurant with all the pictures of rock stars that have visited and strong drinks that have names like the "I Can't Drive 55". It was a little slice of classic rock... More

We were completely fine while on vacation until Cabo Wabo Cantina. This is the only place we ate/drank outside of our resort and we both got sick for days starting just a few hours later. Food wasn't even good, drink prices were too high and the seating area upstairs was run-down. Take a picture of the outside and go elsewhere.

If you're the kind of person who eats at Hard Rock Cafe in every city you visit, by all means check this out. If you actually want good food and drinks without having to pay for Sammy Hagar's next house, go elsewhere. Everyone gets a hard on for Cabo Wabo....not sure why. I have given it a chance several times... More

My husband is a long time VH and Sammy fan so we often stop by Cabo Wabo when in town. As always the bar was hopping and busy with primarily a 30+ aged crowd which is fine with us. Staff were quick to seat us and take our order. First, the drink prices are high for Cabo and then the... More

We were very excited to see this place, and even on a Wednesday night it did not disappoint! We're hard rockers and the live music, beautiful paintings and fun atmosphere was just what we hoped for.
