So delicious!

Their food is delicious, we all loved the fresh and succulent salsa made in front of you with grilled tomatoes. Also their cadillac margarita is the best one I ever had..

Stopped here as part of a tour. Had the stone brown with steak and shrimp, it was excellent, the wife and the combo plate and there was enough food to feed a while family. Son had the governor tacos filled with shrimp. Very good food. They make fresh salsa right at the table and it was smoking good. Very happy... More

Authentic Mexican food. It's in the charming town of San Jose del Cabo. The staff is friendly, drinks good, and food delicious. I would go again!

Delicious food! You must try the seafood molcajete. It's fish, scallops, shrimps and nopales. It is cooked in a molcajete, which is a stone container that cooks at a super high temperature. It cooks the food just perfectly! I would definitely do the ceviche appetizer. It's humungous and delicious. Add a margarita or beer and you're in heaven. There was... More

This is a great place to visit for good, inexpensive Mexican food. Our table had two waiters who were very attentive and helpful! And the margaritas are excellent!!! Will definitely visit again on our next trip to Cabo!

We walked from the art district to find this restaurant recommended by our concierge. Just when we'd almost given up on finding it, there it was and so worth the trek! We were surprised by the table side creation of our salsa in a stone pot with a pestle. We had already ordered nachos, not realizing this was coming so... More

This restaurant was recommended by several people we talked to. It was fabulous! We had a coupon for free margaritas from our hotel. They were good. They handmade salsa at the table in a molcajetes (stone pot). It was delicious! We ordered the shrimp Herederra which is wrapped in bacon and covered with a chipotle cream sauce...Amazing. My son's flank... More

My husband and I ate here after having been here years ago. He had a shrimp molcajete and said it was alright, but nowhere as good as what he had on our last visit. I ordered shrimp tacos as I wasn't all that hungry after a day in the sun. I literally took one bite and had to spit it... More

Let's start with the food. It was beyond excellent. We started with a great appetizer of fresh made guacamole and home made tortillas. There was actually a person making both. We ordered the specialty of the house which is mocaljete, the food is cooked in a stone tool similar to the mortar and peslet made in America. We ordered a... More
