Great food and casual atmosphere

We went to this restaurant because of the good reviews and we were not disappointed. We were a mixed family group of 6 wanting a range from cheeseburgers to good seafood. Three of us had chili rellenos (in different combinations) that were fantastic! The burgers were outstanding! The service was... read more

On the way to the airport we needed breakfast and so stopped off at The Sardina Cantina. We had orange juice, coffee, breakfast burrito and eggs Benedict, the food was lovely, the service quick and friendly and it set us up for the journey ahead. It is definitely worth a visit if your travelling the highway and need a feed.

The food in this restaurant was a little bit of heaven. We ate 3 nights here out of 7 during our week stay in San Jose del Cabo. We both had a different menu item on each visit. Every single item was made to perfection! The crab cakes were to die for. They was so much crab and the portion... More

Never had a bad meal there in fact they were all great. You get really good portions so share if you can. My favorite is the Chicken Cordon Blue which is not always on the menu but you can ask for it. They have great fish specials. The staff, Christian and Diego are lots of fun. Great place for a...

This small restaurant was recommended to us by the front desk at the resort where we stayed. It was within walking distance, so we decided to give it a try. The food was so delicious and the service so friendly that we returned four times during our two week stay. My husband loved the catch of the day, the yellow... More

We love to frequent this place. The portions are large enough that we always take food home for lunch the next day. There are some special items that are not on the menu, such as the seafood enchilada - filled with various seafood and delicious. The shrimp tacos on the bar menu are spectacular also. A must try!

Nice little local establishment with great food. Pretty much everything on the menu is great and the staff is very friendly and attentive. Not much for views and outside is on the busy highway coupled with limited parking onsite, but aside from that if you want good food and good service, it is a great place. Also, it has a... More

I always try and eat at Sardina whenever I am in San Jose. The food is great and plentiful and you always know what you will be getting... It is a sports bar/restaurant so is definitely a local hangout and it is casual and friendly... They do a great "cook your catch" option which is wonderful if you have fresh... More
