We visited El Herradero while on Rancho Land & Sea tour as a part of our $70.00 USD 6 hr guided tour. We were offered a selection of items to choose from and a beverage (soft drink, beer or margarita). The chips, dip and guacamole were fantastic and went well with the cerveza however, the cheese enchilada was bland and... More

The owner of the Villa we were renting suggested this restaurant, and are we ever glad he did. Some of the best food ever, and certainly the best we had on this trip. We ended up going three times,and we're never disappointed. given the effects of the hurricane the place was almost empty, which I find can often lead to... More

Our hotel (El Encanto Inn) recommended this place and even provided us with a "card" for a free margarita. The free margarita was good, but the 2nd one (which we paid for) was outstanding thanks to the "upgrade" our waiter recommended. The chips and salsa were yummy. And dinner was outstanding! We tried two different molcajete dinners (stone bowls filled... More

Very nice place for dinner. We had pulpo (octopus) and some cammarones cocos (coconut shrimp). Very attentive service, good food and drink, nice chips/salsa and bread on the side gratis. I am tasting that great pulpo and cammarones even as I write this! Bon appetit!

Wonderful ownership and staff - we stopped in for drinks one afternoon and everyone was so friendly that we ended coming back later for dinner. We were a party of 10 people and everyone really enjoyed their meals - incredible hotpots and excellent ceviche and of course really good margaritas. In fact the food was so good that we returned...

Went on a tour, but loved the mocajetes. The steak is the best but the chicken is great, too. Amazing homemade tortillas! Loved it!

We went here at the recommendation of the Cabo Azul Resort staff. Food was excellent (we ate here twice in a week stay) and staff was fun, as the owner would come out and talk to you while he was having a fun time. Not seen that often but he was great. It was good authentic Mexican Food and we... More
