One of my favorites

We love to go to Mi Cocina. The food is amazing, and the service is outstanding. It is set in a beautiful courtyard at the Casa Natalia boutique hotel, just off the main square in San Jose. Try the Latin lovers martini.

Tucked into Casa Natalia at the end of a row of shops in downtown San Jose, it looked a lot better than it turned out. A very nice setting in the courtyard of the hotel. Some of the food was better than others, I would caution against the Mex-Med as one of our party got sick from it.

We ate here on our last night in Cabo. The staff is great. Very helpful, very patient, very nice. The setting is pretty sweet. Reminded me of Santa Fe. The food was good, certainly worth a visit, but not great.

I ate here twice, once at lunch and once at dinner. Both were excellent. The atmosphere can't be beat. Inside the courtyard of Hotel Natalia, the location is beautiful and upscale. A breeze comes in from the Sea of Cortez and keeps the entire place much cooler than other restaurants in the area. The food was amazing--particularly the gazpacho and... More

Mi Cocina is definitely my favorite restaurant in San Jose del Cabo. The chocolate chicken, pork chop and delicious side dishes are beautifully presented and carefully prepared. For lunch the shrimp tacos are a favorite. Th service is attentive but never rushed, We enjoy the beautiful music in the background, as well as the romantic lighting and the sound of... More

The giant blue wall made me feel safe from the unknown... Food reviews on TA were stellar, but i am going to be honest, i was disappointed. Everything I tasted was weak and lacked conviction, like management was dictating the menu. There is no way a waiter ever brought a date or a family member there to impress. And now... More

This establishment was personally recommended, and through other reviews on trip advisor appeared a good place to try breakfast ;unfortunately we were disappointed. The menu was very generic.. The flavors were safe and bland. I doubt the staff would elect to dine here if they were dining out with friends and family....

My first clue that things weren't going to be great was that my straight up Martini tasted like water. Some of our group enjoyed their meals. Two of us didn't . I ended up with Montezuma's revenge that night. As beautiful as the place is, I would never go back.
