Have been here on each of our 5 trips to Cabo. We stopped by one evening on this trip to see if it was still here. It's conveniently located near the center square. Had a Flor de Mexico Martini which was light and tasty. I had the ceviche and the incredible risotto. My husband had a wonderful sea bass. Always... More

This up-scale restaurant located conveniently near the main square in San Jose Del Cabo is a great place for drinks... the food is presented well (highly recommend the chimichurra flank steak), but the prices are steep for what you get. Now, the service is great, but realize that the atmosphere NOT local... in fact, when I ate there last week,... More

Spent a wonderful lunch in the lovely courtyard area of Mi Cocina. Tho, some people may find it a pricey lunch the food and service were outstanding. The four tacos were delicious, margarita's were tasty and the tuna dip appetizer was to die for. The decor was fun, with vibrantly colored walls and local art pieces. Mi Cocina is worth... More

If you want to spend 30 usd for 4 little tacos and water, that's the place to be. The tacos were good but it is so overpriced! U can find a better deal in this town. The restaurant was empty and the people next to us left right after checking out the menu. Water was served without being asked and... More

This chic courtyard restaurant decorated with torches, waterfalls, and palm trees—features Euro-Mexican fusion cuisine. I had the "Med-Mex" fajitas (pork on skewers, cucumber cream on spicy jalepeno tortilla) and my wife had blue corn tortilla tacos. The food, the drinks, the atmosphere and the service were all excellent. Highly recommend.

Thank you for your delightful review! When we created the courtyard for the hotel Casa Natalia, the idea was to provide a sensuous ambiance that would enhance the dining experience for the restaurant. We appreciate your kind words and just want to add that our "Euro-Mexican" cuisine does provide a good variety of flavors and we believe at a reasonable... More

Sitting in the firelight in the courtyard of Casa Natalia, Mi Cocina's home, with palm tree columns and the night sky for a ceiling, you will feel as though you have been transported to a different and better world. The food and wines (such as the excellent recent Mexican vintages of the Valle de Guadalupe) only reinforce this impression. Take... More

Found this gem while wandering around downtown looking for a place to eat. Its in a courtyard with water fountains and fire bowls. Its a small outdoor area that lends itself well to a quiet romantic dinner. Not overly priced. The best margaritas we had on vacation. The kefta tacos were great as well as the chocolate mouse for dessert,... More

We ate here for a romantic dinner on a recent trip to Los Cabos. It was probably my favorite meal on the trip. The courtyard where you dine is absolutely beautiful and very zen. The service was top notch and the food was great! I especially enjoyed the grilled romaine salad and the won ton ravioli. Would highly recommend!

Go hungry because the portions are large. A wide variety of selections. Great cocktails. The courtyard setting is filled with art objects and a pool trickling along one side to more yards. It is peaceful and exciting at the same time. Be sure to stay and enjoy the atmosphere.

Food was beautifully prepared, presented and tasty, outdoor setting lovely, good wine list, service excellent. Soups superb, salads excellent, pasta and clams perfect, risotto yummy, key lime pie to die for. We came back a second time, because we liked it so much. Quite expensive, but worth every penny. If we return to this area, we will eat here again.... More
