After reading great reviews we were a bit disappointed. For a fine restaurant such as this you would think they would offer at least a couple of choices for red wine. The night we dined only one was available. Scallops were highly recommended but disappointed by two diners in our party. Someone suggested if an menu item is being pushed,... More

Carlito never disappoints--we let him choose our meal & it is always excellent. The peppers stuffed with crab in a mango-cilantro sauce are a constant; everything else depends on what has come in that day. This visit we had mouth-watering sashimi followed by amberjack, grouper, butterflied shrimp & sushi. Tamarind and lime-mint margaritas followed by a nice Sauvignon Blanc completed... More

Fabulous food, wonderful people. Outside dining. Let Carlito pick what to serve you - you might be surprised to like things you would never have considered! Lots of very fresh fish. Yummy fruit martinis. Cash only, so come prepared.

It was over a hundred degrees in Cabo San Lucas as we left Cabo Church on Sunday afternoon. Decided to drive north along the Pacific Ocean highway to the little village of Pescadero. Based on a good report from our son, we found the delightful Carlito's restaurant about two blocks off the main highway in the center of the village.... More

This is a destination to visit an incredible celebrity chef that gets his catch by spear fishing. He treats his fish to ice keeping it ready and fresh. The atmosphere is open garden Palapa Style.The service is attentive and the chef hosts his guests in a friendly informative manner. Dining highlight of our trip...

This is the second time we have dined at Carlitos! The food is top notch! Every item that comes to the table looks like a piece of Art! I love Asian food and this is what I would call Asian Fusion. Everything is super fresh! Both times we went we ask for suggestions on ordering. Both times we were happy... More

What the heck! An amazing world class restaurant in the middle of no where Baja Mexico. If you are in the area, you MUST come here and enjoy the great food and hospitality of Carlito and his restaurant. This is mainly a seafood place with an asian influence and with some sushi available. Have to recommend their stuffed Bananna Peppers.....sooooo... More

Amazing food, amazing service and a food lovers gem in Pescadero. While staying a week at Cerrioto's beach, we dined on two separate occasions at Carlito's for a late-night dinner as we enjoyed it so much. The flavors tend towards Asian fusion but fresh-caught seafood is highlighted throughout. It is a treat after a day on the beach to enjoy... More

We were immediately greeted by a pretty woman who I believe is Carlos wife who was extremely pleasant and spoke excellent English and really surprised us in her demeanor and pleasantness. Did more restaurants and Cabo had someone like her their... More
