Beautiful well thought out dining area with excellent menu and service.. Try to get a table that isn't under a tree.

Hard to find this restaurant, hidden behind a storefront. Look for the Menu on a stand by the entrance. When you walk in, the courtyard opens up to two levels and is beautiful! Food delicious, staff attentive and pleasant. Loved it. We eat there every time we're in San Jose

My husband and our two girls came here for dinner last night and our dining experience was amazing! The setting is gorgeous, we sat in a courtyard with beautiful trees and as it got darker, lanterns hanging from the limbs were turned on. Christian, who waited on us, treated us like royalty! Our drinks were great, we had the eggplant... More

We went to dinner at La Panga and had a great meal. We started with 2 orders of empanadas with shredded beef and a single order of some of the best scallop ceviche. The food is fresh and well presented. Next we had our entrees, I had the grouper that was encrusted with spices, it was amazing and I'm not... More

Lovely courtyard and outdoors setting, with an open kitchen design. Visited while on a family vacation. Marco guided us towards excellent choices for starters, entree (one of the most tender, well-prepared steaks I have ever had) and dessert. When it starts to get dark they turn on beautiful twinkling lights in the courtyard that hang from the trees. A wonderful... More

I can't believe I haven't reviewed this one already! What a lovely little spot - I've been here a couple of times. It's pretty nondescript from the outside, but what a lovely surprise inside. The open air courtyard has its trees all lit up. It is really something to see. It is PERFECT for a romantic dinner. And did I... More

After strolling through the Artwalk on Thursday afternoon, we walked into La Panga Antigua and to our surprise, had the place to ourselves. It was shortly after they opened so we were seated in the courtyard and able to take in the entire scene. Our server offered several recommendations and we went with the specials of the day, sea bass... More

We love to go to La Panga Antigua. We go every time we are in Cabo. The setting is so pretty in the courtyard. The food is very good. The service has always been wonderful. A special place!

Great little courtyard restaurant that services a hybrid of seafood with Mediterranean and Mexican influences. I had a special yellowtail tuna dinner that I talked about for two days! Attentive waiters. Total date night place but they did have tables that accommodated larger groups.

This is a beautiful fashionable and romantic restaurant with options for seating under the trees and palms in the small courtyard or inside in the small adjoining dining rooms. The food was delicious and very beautifully presented. White tablecloths and setting appropriate for a fine dining experiences. Marco was an exceptional host. I will be back.
