Coming from Cabo San Lucas to San José del Cabo on the Transpeninsular Highway, you pass Walmart (on your right hand side), at 100 meter is a traffic light with a sign that says "Malvarrosa", you turn left (there is a "Gift Shop" right on the corner), we are on the same block as the Oxxo store but on the other corner.

Good food, great prices, interesting concept. Pretty dead when we went for dinner. Very casual. Probably a nice lunch spot.

Searched this little place out for lunch - had soup and their special hot pot specialty. It was very good! Open air, the owner sells bottled fruit water - or you can go next door to the store for pop or beer. Fun little jaunt - hard to find since the road is torn up.

Great food, personal attention, and best value. Went twice during our 7 day visit. Make sure to start with a full bowl of tortilla soup. Portobello mushroom volcano and tortas are amazing.

A bit off the beaten path (across Rt. 1, up from Walmart), this restaurant deserves it's #1 rating. The food, Cazuelas (stews) are unique and delicious. Three of us had the 'sinfully' good beef, chorizo, . . .stew; I in a Quezuelada, the others with potatoes or tacos. And the tomato-based tortilla soud (half-bowls were sufficient) was delicious.

We first ran across the proprietors at the Organic Market on Saturday where they had a hot food stall set up.

My husband and I had lunch here today. Don and his wife were lovely. They carefully explained their menu and the history behind it. You choose from one of several preparations of meats/veggie/aromatics, which are cooked in a cazuela, an individual casserole, in a delicious sauce. You also choose from one of several ways to have your cazuela served; with... More

We used tripadvisor to find this place based on the reviews and we were not disappointed! The food was out of this world. So much flavor! Also, the owner was very kind and explained the menu very thoroughly. Wish we had gone to this place at the beginning rather than the end of our vacation. Highly recommended.
