Our family of five had the pleasure of being served by Polo on a busy Friday night. Polo happily answered our many questions and helped us fine tune our attempts at speaking Spanish! He made us feel very welcome. We all ordered different versions of the the restaurant's specialty Molcajete and we were so impressed we ordered an extra one!... More

We had the pleasure of dining at El Herradero on our vacation. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff who were able to make great recommendations for our meal. We chose the mixed seafood cooked and served in the authentic Mexican stone dishes.....they stay hot for ever! A fantastic meal that is a part of our memory of Cabo!

This is an excellent local Restaurant. The place has unique Mexican dishes prepared by the culinary experience of Dona Luisa. The food was so delicious that we returned to the place twice. Dona Martha (waitress) was also a nice and friendly person. We definitely will return to this place L. and M. Felhazy

El Herradero is a very traditional Mexican Restaurant in the heart of downtown San Jose Del Cabo. The food is delicious, service fantastic and the ambiance is very Mexican. It is not cheap but not at the highest end either. You can walk to it or take a bus.

The tour guide took us here for lunch and I was not disappointed. The manager and staff knew how to treat tourist. The food was amazing and the service excellent. I has the best chicken fajita ever and their tiramisu was the best I ever tasted anywhere in the world after mine (of course).

We had Christmas dinner there, with no reservations, and we had a nice table for 5. People just leaving the place, recommended hot pot dishes, and they were delicious indeed. We shared our food and between the 5 of us, everyone was pleased. (the warm tortillas kept coming and coming). Nice service, lovely atmosphere. A little away from the main... More

We absolutely LOVE El Herradero's. The service is amazing and the food is fabulous! We have tried several dishes and we were never disappointed. The Coconut Prawns are heavenly! Try it! You will be glad you did!

We stopped here for lunch as part of the Rancho Tours 6 hour tour of Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. Outstanding chicken fajitas and lots of handmade tortillas. Be sure to tip the lady making them out front as you leave. I've never seen warm salsa served in stone bowls but was very good. Good service, certainly... More

A very nice restaurant, if you want to try Mexican food, mocajete is what you will ask for, meat or fish, not to spicy( with an eye for the tourist) . Good service.
