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

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.

The service was a little off. They forgot the birthday greeting for my wife. The Mexican wine recommended by our waiter was excellent and so was my swordfish entree. Sadly my wife's scallop entree came out cold. I would go again and give them one more chance as the wine and swordfish were so good.

Really thought we were in for a treat having read all the reviews on this site. Really disappointed. We booked a table and were ignored when we arrived. Then seated, given menus and ignored again.. We had to try to catch someone's eye to ask for menus and order drinks. The ceviche starter was bland with little or no fish,... More

Went here 3 years ago so decided to try it again. Still a beautiful setting and very good food. Excellent service. Two of us had the mahi mahi that was well prepared. Not cheap, but the beautiful garden setting and good food made it worth it.
