We chose Sardina Cantina for breakfast due to its location next to a handy min-mart, but we stayed and returned as often as we could for the food. The breakfast burritos were just the right blend of eggs, meat and veggies, all deliciously fresh and far superior to what usually passes for a breakfast burrito. We came back a few... More

What can I say? Had a phenomenal meal our last night in San Jose del Cabo. The staff were amazing, the food was beyond expectations and the owner couldn't be more hospitable. Remember, San Jose del Cabo is still in recovery mode from Hurricane Odile, but you'd never know it by this place. The clam chowder could possibly be the... More

Sardina Cantina is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I've tried them all and have never been disappointed. Pricing is good, service is fast and efficient and the wait staff is friendly and attentive. If you're longing for a good old American hamburger and fries, this is the place. However all of the menu items are great. Its a small... More

Always looking forward to eating at the Sardina Cantina... The fresh fish specials are always good. Especially the Halibut with the Rockerfeller Sauce. The Chicken Cordon Bleu with the Au Gratin Potatoes are to die for! We love everything on the menu! Love the good service, friendly staff and happy atmosphere!

Great food, excellent service, a little spendy. Huge portions, my daughter and I could have split our plate and still been full. Looking forward to our next visit.

Located on the highway in a tiny strip-mall. The Sardina Cantina isn't fancy, but it is predictable and they always serve good quality food. There is a bit of an eclectic collection of food, primarily Mexican, but they also have things like Steaks, Caprese salads, Coconut Shrimp and even make excellent potstickers which show up on the menu from time...
