Great local food

Totally local food at a great prices. The wine is not great but mixed drinks are excellent and you can never go wrong with beer and Mexican food. Service is great and they always make room even for large groups.

We have gone here two times for dinner and once for lunch. Compared to how crowded it can be for dinner we were surprised to find we had the place to ourselves when we went for lunch. The pumpkin blossom quesidillas were a hit for us as well as the fruit waters! The great assortment of taco toppings and accompaniments... More

A taste of real Mexico, off the beaten track. The food and atmosphere are amazing and it's out of the tourist areas so very reasonably priced. Mix with the locals at this restaurant. It's worth the trip.

We visited Guacamaya's for the first time on 1/31/16. The patrons were a mix of locals and tourists. The atmosphere was great with quiet music playing in the background. I had Guacamaya's Special Chicken dish with mushrooms, cactus and cheese. It was great. My wife and daughter split the pork shoulder lava bowl, a dish easily for two. It was... More

Best meal we had in Cabo. Maybe the best Mexican food I've had - ever. Flank steak fajitas were the best part! Also the Sopes. Friendly staff and very authentic Mexican/lots of locals.

This a is a great restaurant with a fantastic outdoor vibe. It is very popular amoungst local and tourists alike. Locals arrive to eat around 6-8pm and the locals really get going around 9-10pm. A big selection of great Mexican food. Try their grilled cheese. Also really good stuffed baked potatoes. Pretty much everything is good.

We go to San Jose every year. We found out about Guacamaya's about 3 years ago. This place has the best Mexican food! We go there at least 2 times out of the week we go and stay in San Jose. I recommend eating here!

We were looking for a place to eat. There was a food truck right outside with $2 tacos USD... but the menu for Guacamaya's said it was $1... the pastore was on the spit so I had to go in. All our food was wonderful. Must get the fried cheese. Amazing. Really enjoyed the ambiance and food. Staff excellent.

We had dinner here the other night and enjoyed the experience. The night we were there had a singer which was quite decent and added to the experience. As for the food, the Margaritas were good and certainly plentiful. The tacos were ok. Pretty basic fare. The food highlight was the Bowl, which is their signature dish. Service was ok... More
