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.

We really enjoyed this little restaurant tucked away on the slope in a neighborhood above San Jose Del Cabo. We found it on Trip Advisor. It was full when we arrived and the owner, Alberto wasn't sure if he could fit us in so we started to leave and the people in the restaurant called out, "stay, you won't regret... More

This is a place you would never run across on your own, yet you would be so glad you did. One of the great things about Tripadvisor ratings is that other people somehow discover these hidden gems for you. On a quiet side street, this is a simple, open-air restaurant whose main assets are tasty, very unique dishes and an... More

We had our first taste of their volcanes at the organic market on Saturdays, and were thrilled to find out that they had a restaurant within walking distance from our home. Great food, simple yet so sophisticated. Flavors that have been stewing together all day and create a taste sensation. The food itself isn't spicy. They do have salsas that... More

We visited Las Cazuelas del Don for our last meal in San Jose Del Cabo. It's too bad it was our last! Their tortilla soup is unequalled - a tomato based soup with tortillas, topped with sour cream, queso, avocado, and pork rinds. We tried each of the night's cazuelas (one beef, one chicken and one mushroom) in different forms,... More

We love eating at Las Cazuelas del Don. They cook 2-6 different stews in traditional clay pots for hours each day. We love the flavors they blend. We live in San Jose del Cabo and we come here at least twice a month

Alberto and his family are the consumate hosts. Interesting and delicious takes on Mexican home style favourites. Tripadvisor has it as number one and they are right!!! My family had a fantastic meal. Alberto handles the front and service while his wife is responsible for preparing those incredible servings. Read the reviews....its everything they say.
