Good food, nice place

This is the second visit to both San Jose del Cabo and El Herradero. Real Mexican is always a draw to my family since we have lived in Mexico as well as the States. The dinner is ample - we are not huge eaters so the leftovers made a nice 2nd meal at the hotel later on. A delicious tortilla... read more

We loved the food and the staff is friendly. He ordered Tacos de arrachera, and I had black been soup, all delicious. And they had a trio of live musicians that made the all place come alive... We saw a lot of customers order the house specialty, a caldron of steaming goodness from an old grandma recipe. It looked wonderful.... More

We had a great time at El Herradero! Our waiter, Polo, recommended the queso fundito for a starter with our mango margaritas. Then we both tried specialties (chile rellenos stuffed with seafood) and we were not disappointed. Our new favorite restaurant in San Jose!

We have been here for 6 days and have eaten here 3 times. We love the staff - especially Polo - and all of the meals have been terrific. I recommend the queso fundido with tequila, and the hot stone meals. Shrimp Herraderas is wonderful but get the cheese on the side unless you want it super rich. We never... More

The food here is wonderful, however our group of 12 had asked for 6 separate checks and the waiter said no problem. When only one check came, the owner would not accommodate our request for separate checks. We all have been going here every year for 5 years, I don't know if we will go back next year because of...

After finishing the San Jose Thursday Night Art Walk we headed over to the El Herradero Mexican Grill and Bar. The food and service is outstanding at this restaurant. The Cilantro Fish dinner was delicious! Highly recommended. Streaming Molcajete (cooked in a raised stone bowl) dishes arrived raising eyebrows and appetites and were graciously shared.
