Nice lunch

Four of us went out for a late lunch. Asked about the specials and they said they had fresh tuna and two of us ordered tuna tacos. They were very good! Plenty of tuna in the tacos. Nice portions!

Staying at Coral Baja located near this restaurant and it came highly recommended. Food was excellent and the staff was fun and friendly. Great night just remember to bring cash as they do not accept credit cards.

We ate here twice during our Worldmark stay. The breakfasts were great and the Imperial Shrimp were to die for. Christian open early one morning and gave us coffee until the kitchen opened. He was so nice and accommodating.

My fiancé and I ate at this restaurant multiple times while on vacation at The Bel Air. Carlos, our concierge, sent us here when we asked for recommendations. We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner here and every meal was awesome! Christian, our waiter was very friendly and the owner Mike was a great person to get to know too!

Always visit the Cantina several times when we come to Cabo. The food and service is always great. The fish tacos, seared tuna and Cantina slaw are our favourites.

If you are staying at Coral Baja resort, or anywhere else in San Jose del Cabo, for that matter, don't miss this little restaurant. They have the very best seafood I have ever eaten and their fish and chips are to die for.... Shrimp scampi was awesome...Filet and lobster too....Huge portions and priced to keep bringing you back, as though... More
