Very romantic

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.

We first found this restaurant about 5 years ago and make an annual visit. The fresh "catch of the day" is always a hit. This time it was Yellow Fin tuna, cooked perfectly on the grill. The wait staff is excellent and always willing to serve. We love the courtyard seating and the small menu. Everything on it is a... More

My husband and I toured San Jose Del Cabo on the Thursday night Art Walk (highly recommend doing). We were referred to La Panga Antigua by its sister restaurant, Mi Casa in Cabo San Lucas. We dined a little early and were the only ones there for the first part of our meal. We were somewhat nervous why no one... More

We had an early dinner that was terrific. Excellent service and the staff could not be more accommodating to our needs. It is by the church in the Square with a part of an old wooden boat having above the entrance. You walk into a beautiful courtyard for dinner. Beautiful later in the evening with a ll the hidden lights... More

Had dinner here tonight's ago. Service was attentive and excellent; menu is not huge but good variety and very well executed. Seating is outdoor in an interior courtyard which is lovely. Excellent value and the best intersection of quality and price. Two appetizers, two entrées, a bottle of sparkling water and one glass of wine came in at about $80... More

We had just had shrimp and prefer not to eat Tuna. That decided we opted for a glass of wine and seafood cervieche as a started and then said we would... More

I wanted to try this restaurant after walking past and seeing the lovely courtyard setting. It is a beautiful looking place but the waiter was very grumpy and the food was very average. Disappointing.

We just got back from a lovely meal at La Panga Antigua. My husband & I had the catch of the day (tuna) prepared in vary different ways - delish! Our friends had a shrimp/pasta dish that they really liked. Strolling singers/guitarists strolled through on two different occasions. Dessert was yummy too - I'll try to download some pix if...
