Let me begin by telling you that San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas are EXPENSIVE. However, this restaurant will give you a good bang for your buck. The staff is really friendly, the food is really good and the portions are generous. They have a room with A/C but it is not significantly cooler than the rest of... More

There appears to many Mexican seafood restaurants in CSL but only a limited number in SJD, Since we were in the historical district, this was a very good choice. The restaurant has a choice of an air conditioned dining room or patio sitting. To start, we had a very good mango margarita, cadillac margarita and pina colada to accompany the... More

We found El Herradero as a result of taking a tour with Rancho Tours of San Jose de Cabo. The tour included dinner and this is the restaurant they chose. It was very hot and humid and we were so grateful that the restaurant was air conditioned, although there are seats in the open air area. The service was gracious,... More

Great food, great atmosphere, air conditioned or open-air seating options, funny staff...what a great combination! The food was great and the staff was so attentive. We were the only American family in the restaurant, and it was a block or two off the main road, so less of a tourist destination. We went here on a recommendation from a local... More

This place we would go back to. The shrimp Herradero was very good. I tried a combination plate that had shrimp, lobster and steak. Lobster was ok, the steak wasnt the best but the shrimp was awesome. Next time I would just order the herradero shrimp. Overall we had a nice experience here and would go back.

We come to Cabo often. We took a drive up to San Jose Del Cabo, looking for a new place to eat breakfast. We stumbled upon this place, and are SO glad we did! Best breakfast I have ever had in Los Cabos! The chilaquiles verde were amazing! As were the tempura shrimp tacos. Kids had mango strawberry smoothies, fresh... More

This funky mexican restaurant has excellent service, food and drinks. The stone bowls are substantial and excellent as are the other choices on the menu. There is a Mexican lady making fresh tacos that are served hot at your table. The prices are very reasonable. This is a great place for a celebratory meal without breaking the bank.
