This lovely restaurant is nestled in the courtyard under the trees. The refined menu offers fish and meat selections accompanied by the bounty of the Baja. I had a perfectly cooked sea bass with spectacular risotto (so hard to get right in a restaurant setting) setting). If you have one "nice" dinner in downtown San Jose, have it here.

This is a real authentic high end restaurant in the lovely town of Sna Jose del Cabo. We had a lovely dinner of fish. My husband had short ribs. Service was attentive, polite and timely. The building is a perfect setting for a romantic dinner or with friends.

Had dinner after a friends recommendation. The ambience is off the charts and perfect location if you are attending Art Walk. We both loved our food. Rib Eye steak was the best I have had in a long time. Make reservations and you will not be disappointed.

This restaurant WOWED us. The ambiance, service and food were an upscale experience. The Seabass was exceptional and the Jumbo Shrimp was excellent. Two bottles of water, 2 glasses of Chardonnay, 2 entrees, and apple tart with ice cream for $84. We will again return to this restaurant on our next trip.

I went for dinner here with 7 friends. The garden where we were sat was simply breath taking. I had the tortilla soup as a starter and it was delicious. I followed it with a big chunk of beef. It was perfectly cooked and extremely tender. The girls all really enjoyed their dinners as well. I would eat here again.

At the outset, let me say that the ambience, the meal itself and the service was very good. My review must however be negative, given the predatory pricing policies of this restaurant toward non- Mexican customers. We ate dinner at this restaurant in the second week of January 2016 at the recommendation of friends who accompanied us . Before doing... More

A gem in old San Jose del Cabo' just off the square downtown. The food was amazing' an infusion of flavours. A truly remarkable dining experience. Highly recommend to anyone that would like a five star food experience.

Really nice upscale restaurant in the center of the historic San Jose Del Cabo. Very authentic (non touristy) place with very reasonable prices. The best mahi mahi I have ever had. The food was excellent - a 10, the service was excellent - a 10 and the atmosphere was a 10. What more could you ask for. If you go... More

We walked around the square and looked at menu's for 2 hours-art too. Got tired and picked La Panga from fatigue and beautiful courtyard. Turned out to be far and away our favorite meal. Started with Shrimp Spring roll-hard to hold and eat but freshness and taste made it worth the effort. Had the pork chop and shrimp with dual... More

The food was outstanding! "modern mexican" - was exactly what we wanted. -Traditional flavors but served in an inventive fusion. I had the filet, and when it arrived, I thought - "that's certainly different looking" but when I tasted it - I was delighted. It was delicious, flavorful, unique, and cooked perfectly. My husband had the catch of the day... More
