We returned the next day, it was that good and well priced

Of all the great good in a week of eating our way through Cabo San Lucas, San Jose Del Cabo, and Todo Santos, this was the only restaurant we returned to (20 mile drive each way). This is the real deal, where the locals eat (but all servers speak English). Fresh seafood, fun causal ambiance... read more

This open air palapa restaurant sits on a rise just a couple minutes from Los Cabos Airport in San José del Cabo and it comes well-recommended by the locals. The vibe is Baja casual with an all sand floor, and plastic chairs and tables. Sometimes there's live music.The food was fresh and flavorful and the service was good, but it's... More

A little late in doing this but my wife and I had dinner here in January when visiting San Jose del Cabo. The setting is comfortable with varying sizes of tables. There were many locals here when we visited, which is a good sign. Service was quick and efficient. I had a whole grilled red snapper with lots of garlic.... More

we went to el toro güero after talking to some employees of the hotel where we were staying. We asked them where we should go for the best fish tacos in town. They ranked a few places and put this one at the top. So we gave it a try. Went there on a sunday lunch. I ordered fish tacos... More

When in San Jose, we like to try as many new restaurants as possible. This local favorite did not disappoint. It serves fish and seafood in traditional Mexican style. Prices are very reasonable, service is very good and the atmosphere is typical of a local Mexican restaurant. Definitely worth a visit!

This place was good for a fairly inexpensive meal. Open air dining. Some locals seemed to be there ( a good sign).

A local restaurant with the best seafood in town. My husband had a whole red snapper done in Garlic butter and it was to die for. We went three times our dinner with wine and beer was under $40 US.

I live here in San Jose and visit this restaurant on a regular basis. My favorite dishes? Pulpo (octopus) in garlic. It melts in your mouth. My second favorite (especially if I want something lighter for lunch) is the crab tostado. Everyone, regardless of what you order, gets a small cup of shrimp broth. It is awesome. The service is...

We have eaten here twice on this trip. Absolutely the best red snapper - be prepared it is the whole fish. The guacamole is the perfect amount of spicy. Freshly made chips to go with it are excellent. Beware - they can burn your fingers they are so hot.
