We ate dinner here twice between June 21-28, 2014. We were very impressed with the freshness of the seafood. We had the octopus ceviche, which was good, but more on the acidic side. We also had (over the course of 2 nights) octopus in butter and garlic sauce (al ajo), octopus in ajillo sauce (garlic and guajillo chilies), camarones mocambo... More

So fresh and good! Great service but a little slow overall, which we didn't mind since we were drinking and on vacation! Very good red snapper, but ordered it grilled and it came fried. They apologized but no comp of any kind. Really good place with air conditioning!!!!

The restaurant was nearly empty for a late dinner, so I was worried. A local had recommended the restaurant and said we had to try the Mocombo Shrimp. We ordered an entire shrimp platter for two and it was amazing. Mocombo shrimp is a large shrimp stuffed with cheese, wrapped in bacon and grilled. They were amazing! The coconut shrimp... More

It's been several years since we had dinner at Mocambo but we wanted to visit some of our old haunts so we came back. It's now very touristy, ordinary salsa and chips, watery margarita and poor shrimp platter. The diablo tasted like they dumped a con of marinara sauce on it and it was hard as a rock! It's not...

I was told by several locals that this was a great place to eat so I added it to my list of dining areas. The atmosphere was definitely in line with the area and had a great relaxing feel. The staff were very kind to everyone at the table. The food was not bad but not fantastic either. This is... More

The food here was good - we had the massive seafood platter - but we were given the "premium" margaritas without being told they cost 1250 pesos each. It seemed that local diners were offered less expensive drinks

I had a seafood stew that was delicious and there is a very extensive seafood menu. Also mariachis performed :)

Disappointed. We ordered a mariscada and it looked great, but so not worth the $80 a plate for two. Food seemed old. Everything was so expensive. A 20 oz bottle water was $8! (Gasp!) The service however was great! Wonderful staff! The food not so much. Everything in Cabo is seriously overpriced.

We thoroughly enjoyed eating here. the restaurant is large and was nearly empty as we dined around 230 PM. It was quiet and breezy and our waiter gave us excellent service. We ordered a fried whole snapper which was huge, scored so the fish easily detached, and cooked to perfection. We also ordered dinner to take with us-jumbo prawns-which were... More
