“Excellent Mexican Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

Found this gem while looking for real Mexican food on Trip Advisor. Not many reviews, but all good. Tried several different types of tacos, all excellent and very reasonably priced.

“Real Local Flavour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

Some Mexican friends of ours from La Paz who live part time in Cabo recommended La Guadalupana to us to experience authentic Mexican cooking. Wow! Were they ever right. The tortilla soup was excellent. The pork shank steamed in banana leaves literally fell off the bone. The chicken enchiladas verde were mouth watering and the meatballs we can't say enough about. They are made with pork and beef and have a whole hard boiled egg in the middle (big meatballs). Needless to say we had food to take home.

The handmade margaritas were very good and we stayed and drank far too many. Played a few games of dominoes with our waiter before we left. Apparently they have Pozole on Friday nights and play dominoes very late into the night. Will have to try that on a Friday.

“Fantastic food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2010

The food at this place is fantastic. The restaurant is very clean although it tends to look like a Mexican Elks club. Try the Tortilla soup. Also the pork shank is incredible. The chile relleno I had was out of this world. The biggest thing abougt the restaurant is the authentic Mexican food. Would go back again.

“A Real Taste of Mexico”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2009

My husband and I were staying at Sunset Beach Pueblo Bonito. We'd been at the Rose all day and wanted to see the town and eat authentic Mexican food. We found our place not far from the Pueblo Bonito Rose. Gabriella Cardona was so very gracious and helpful. The Tortilla Soup was fabulous...the mole was excellent. "Gaby" suggested a chicken entree for me, which was also wonderful. The atmosphere was so warm and friendly. We met Fernando Tames Batha, an artist who lives near Cabo there. He and the "guitar man with a beautiful smile" and the amazing bartender taught us how to play dominoes. We had such a great evening, we went back 2 days later.
