Carlito's is very conscious of protecting the health and welfare of there customers. Carlito's uses natural organic producst to control flys, bobo's, ants, and other unwanted nuisance insects. I will eat at this restaurant anyday knowing they do not use harmful toxic synthetic chemicals:-) The Gardening Guru , Baja Sur Mexico

Our family ate here last week and it was incredible. It was a very hot evening, so we were glad they had the fans going. Carlos wasn't cooking the night we were there, but the food was still delicious. The oysters are huge, plum and tasty. A nice variety of seafood to choose from. It is mostly seafood place which...

This is a firstrate restaurant by a highly gifted chef and his lovely wife. The setting is lovely, in a garden. The food was one delight after another. Lovely fruity margaritas. Hard to find, but once you got there, you were transported to another dimension.

I don't like sushi, but I didn't need to order any. There's a lot more on the menu (sashimi, tempura, etc.). The banana peppers were outstanding. So were the mahi mahi tempura ribs. So were the cocktails. Apparently, so was the sushi. At least, the people in my party who like sushi enjoyed theirs. I *really* wanted the pelican statue... More

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...
