We loved this Restaurant.... First we walked in ¨La Plaza¨, entered the Church, bought some silver jewelry in a store next to the restaurant and finally had dinner there ! The place is a terrace with a big Almendro tree in the center, filled with stars, the food was incredible: fresh octopus in a stir fry dish, and a risotto... More

Another guest from our hotel had recommended this restaurant and were so happy she did. I had the most delicious and beautifully prepared Mahi Mahi. The vegetables on the side were so fresh and beautifully seasoned. All six of us in our party were blown away at how delicious and beautifully plated our meals were. The outside patio area where...

My husband and I were actually looking for another restaurant, which was closed for the summer (happens a lot here) when we found La Panga Antigua. We have walked past it several times on trips to Cabo but never went in for some reason. It is super charming, decorated in a classic beautiful mexican garden meets slightly contemporary cool. We...

Mind blowing food here. Small portions of utter deliciousness. The mixed Ceviche was unlike any we've ever had before. The fish ceviche was served in a hot pepper oil, the octopus was served in a spicy asian sauce, and the shrimp was served with a fresh basil sauce. Amazing. We had the Catch Of The Day which was Yellowtail with... More

We were fortunate to get a reservation just before the huge dinner crowd arrived. Lucky for us, we were seated in the lower garden area......like dining a a private garden patch! Our waiters were wonderful, the setting was over the top and our food was great! It was so peaceful, that we were almost shocked to see all the people... More

It's all been said, so I will only add.... try the squid appetizer. Very unusual, wonderful flavors.

Wow! - This sweet little restaurant was everything I had dreamed of finding in Mexico, and there it was on our very first night in town! You step through the covered entry and down into a courtyard, all outdoors, with various levels - all of it beautifully landscaped. As the day gives way to night, the lights come on and... More

My husband and I visited La Panga because it was recommended to us from our hotel and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere was really lovely with indoor and outdoor seating filled with flowering trees, murals, and lanterns as well as a live musician who plays for tips. Our waiter was friendly and attentive, suggesting fresh dishes. We had the... More

Food was fantastic; I am still thinking about every part of my plate -- swordfish, risotto, grilled veg. Highly recommended and good value considering the quality. Nice courtyard setting; staff was accommodating of requests like bill splitting and gluten-free prep. Favourite restaurant so far in Los Cabos.
