We went to Deckman's over the holiday with family. The staff are friendly and attentive, and the food is stellar! They had live music that night - just a guitar player so nothing to intrusive! The setting is lovely, and Drew came out of the kitchen and personally thanked us for dining with them!

It can be difficult finding a great restaurant while on vacation. Deckman's is probably one of the best findings of a restaurant in which the Chef, and staff truly love food and love to cook. The selections are ever changing, and the combination of ingredients are well thought out. This is a must stop while in the area or worth... More

We always go to Deckmans. Every time we go to San Jose Del Cabo we have dinner at Deckmans, and more than once. It is always a wonderful experience. The menu changes with the freshest ingredients. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The atmosphere is romantic, warm, inviting, with great views, seating inside, outside, or at the bar. It... More

If it's great service, a super ALL Baja wine list and over the top food... look no further. Drew Deckman has raised the bar for all of Baja with fresh farm to table ingredients blending a myriad of flavors from Chic Med to Picante Mex. if your wallet can handle it go for the 5 course tasting menu. you won't...

I have already written a couple of reviews for Deckmann's. Having had a mind blowing meal there last night I feel compelled to write yet another review. Let's get one thing straight first. Drew Deckmann is hands down the best chef in Cabo - by a country mile. Classically trained, Drew let's the food do the talking. No disguising food... More

My husband and I shared several tapas selections, including scallops and octopus. Our server was very knowledgeable about what to order and how much. We had the chocolate dessert combo-delicious.

Food was good, but really expensive. I've heard Deckman isn't all that nice to the locals. We did a tasting menu, and I am a vegetarian so there were limited options.

Amazing dinner! A fantastic Mexican dining experience not to be missed. Forget the menu, have Deckman and his crew bring out whatever the Chef likes. We had 7 courses with a shot of Mezcal to top it off. I took pictures of each course. I can't stop talking about what a great experience it was.

Had dinner at Deckman's last week and it was perhaps the 4th or 5th time we've eaten there. Drew Deckman's food just keeps getting better and better, and his inventiveness has redefined modern food in southern Baja. No wonder he's been asked to be a judge on Top Chef Mexico! Great atmosphere at the restaurant, and the service was flawless.... More
