Great meal with friends and family!

Not sure why I took so long to eat at this wonderful restaurant, the drinks were to die for and the seafood was perfect. We have it served several different ways for our party of 8. We were in just before Christmas. The service timely and attentive.

Overall a great atmosphere and lovely staff, unfortunately one of our guests might have gotten stomach illness from here...you never know but not having eating breakfast that day or dinner, the finger points at that direction.

My wife and I stayed at Rancho Pescadero for a week over NYE, and a local told us that we had to go eat here at Carlito's Place. He said "it isn't the cheapest, but the seafood is the best!" We walked up to the highway from the beach and crossed over to the inland side, and his restaurant is... More

Myself and three friends stayed in Cerritos / Todos Santos for two weeks and ate almost everywhere. This place was awesome! the location is a little hard to find and definitely not on the main road but the food is amazing. We met Carlito at the entrance when we arrived and he was the nicest guy. We ordered drinks and... More

Probably the best restaurant in the Todos Santos/El Pescadero area, the menu is delightful, the setting is beautiful and the staff and owners are friendly and very very helpful. I'm a gluten free vegan diner - not easy for most restaurants and they happily accommodated my needs. My friend's meal was spectacular as was mine... they also bring out samples... More

If you are traveling between Cabo and Todos Santos are round dinner time you must see if you can get a reservation at Carlitos. It's not cheap...and they only take cash but it's worth it. The food is amazingly creative. If you are really feeling advetnures or Carlitos Way and he will bring you suprise after suprise.

This guy Carlitos is very good, just put your self in his hands and let him do a menu for you... also let him know your budget... It is right in the entrance of pescadero, so if you are in Cabo it is a nice drive along the coast and good get away from the usual places.

We splurged and did "Carlito's Way" (chef's choice). This was the best food and margaritas I have ever had. It was expensive but worth every peso!!

The only complaint I have was the price of the sushi. Coming from Vancouver with some of the most expensive & best value Sushi all in one place, I thought the prices were a little steep considering the location. We were in the area 7 nights, ate out every night and this was by far the most expensive dinner we... More
