Great ocean breezes make this one of the best places in Old Town San Jose

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... read more

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.

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.

I wish I could give 5 star reviews all day but....the recommended spring roll appetizers reminded me of the cheap free egg rolls you get at the cheap Chinese restaurants in the US. It was very salty and the skin tasted like it had been double fried and was thick and soggy. The entrees were overpriced for what they were... More

This restaurant came highly regarded by several friends. It was lovely, but not as absolutely amazing as I thought it would be. The location was great, the view was interesting (a long narrow restaurant that's part of an 18 room boutique hotel at the edge of downtown San Jose del Cabo near the art district. Really nice servers at a... More

A truly lovely atmosphere, service and excellent food. I really enjoyed the outdoor atmosphere, and when it got a little chilly they were very quick to offer an authentic Mexican shawl. I loved the food, and must say the specialty cocktails were outstanding.

If Cabo gets a reputation for a spring break destination then SJD should get a reputation for a foodie paradise. Four of us went to Mi Cocina for dinner and had an amazing meal. The restaurant is located at the Hotel Natalia right off of the main square in SJD. Every member of our group enjoyed their meal and that... More
