Delicious and fresh!

this was the first restaurant I went to once I arrived to San Jose del Cabo and the last restaurant I ate before leaving to the Airport. Food was delicious and was freshly caught! I forgot the name of the Dish however it included Bacon wrapped Shrimp in a spicy chipotle sauce and it was fantastic!

First place I visited when I came to San Jose Del Cabo and I was not impressed. I had a couple of tasteless tacos that I had to eat so fast in fear that one of the waiters would take my plate. - it is funny how they not tell you to leave .... You are half way your meal... More

This place is somewhere near the SJD, we stopped by on the way to our hotel. It is on the side of the highway and without a car, I think its not easy to visit. Given it is near a residential area, rather than the hotel area. I believe that each restaurant are good in only a couple of dishes,... More

We took the bus up from Cabo San Lucas and walked our feet off all over town, poking into shops and art galleries. We heard someone else mention this place and followed them there. It was true respite and good eats and drinks. And a clean bathroom also!!

An extremely casual and very easy going restaurant with friendly staff, good service and excellent seafood. If you think it couldn't get any better the prices are fantastic, thus offering an extraordinary value for money. I really enjoyed this restaurant.

We were referred here by a local shop owner, otherwise we would have never found it. Glad we did find it. It was worth it. We enjoyed our meal. The coconut shrimp was great. They do have an English menu, but servers spoke only Spanish. Mostly locals in restaurant.

We were the only "gringos" in the place, so we knew we were in for real Mexican food. Shrimp makes up the majority of the menu, and they start you off with shrimp soup. Mix in some lime and hot sauce and you're good to go. We tried almond shrimp, coconut shrimp, a sampler, salmon and mahi. Everything was excellent.... More

The fish tacos and marlin tacos were delicious! The seafood cocktails were fresh and tasty too! Our food was prepared quickly and the wait staff was good.
