“BEST in CABO”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

We are Australians and we are very experienced travellers and expert food critics.
We don't write about ANYWHERE unless it is EXCEPTIONAL.

We both have different tastes but Maro caters for all.
Shrimp, Lobster. Steaks & all the normal fare,
Plus fantastic drinks.....margaritas, mojitos, beer !
We love great food and 'value for money' too and Maro's is both and then some.
Maro himself was always there and he makes everyone feel like a SPECIAL guest.
We had some great meals in Cabo but Maro's is the stand out and 'Number 1' in our books.
And judging from the photos and flags on the walls it is not just our favourite Cabo restaurant !
Plastic chairs and table cloths... casual true Mexican dining and FANTASTIC food!
And FUN ! We ate there 3 times in a week. Maro was always there and he and the staff make sure everyone has a GREAT Mexican restaurant experience. Adults and Children alike.
Simply put... Just go there !
We can't wait to go back to Cabo and when we do we will eat here every second night!
Just the Best Value in Cabo +++ For meals and drinks.
Half the price of the resorts
It is only a short walk from the Marina and the centre of town. Off main road Larzaro Cardenas
Whatever you do in Cabo .... Look for the big Yellow sign and find Maro !
It is in Av. Hildago St./N. Across from La Dolce Restaurant

“Awesome. Go there at least 5 times during my stay.”

The best good, atmosphere and value. We go there lots when in Cabo. Maro and his staff are friendly and fun. If you don't go, you are missing out.

“Delicious seafood, fun dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

We dined in the early evening during off-peak season in Los Cabos. The seafood (lobster and shrimp) was delicious, as was the chocolate cake. The staff went out of their way to make sure we had a good time. We had such a good experience the first time that we made sure to go back.

“Not fancy but fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Maro's has great food at great prices. It does not look like a 5 stray place but it is. The service is wonderful. They even parked my car. We car last year and could not wait to come back. This time we brought the whole famiily and everyone loved it.

“Can't miss Maro's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Even though we were All Inclusive at a resort, we still spent the $12 taxi ride just to go to Maro's. It's a thing. Same people, same menu, same plastic chairs and college sports team banners, too hot and gaudy. We LOVE it. It's like a cult or something, and we can't stay away. Maybe it's that they remember you (I'd like to think it's true, so let me!). Hugs all around. Everyone in the place is like in a secret club that we all know about. Strangers are immediately friends. We shared what we bought, shared drinks .. total strangers. Maybe it's that for under $20 you can get two lobster tails and 6 jumbo shrimp. Are you serious? And so sweet, fresh and perfectly prepared. Maybe it's the Bulldogs, (lemonade, tequila and beer) for $4.50, that come with a bit of a show that will make you blush, or order another round in our case. We had 2 rounds, and they gave us the third round for free. That's the other thing. When you come back year after year, they keep throwing free dessert, another round of bull dogs. It's like you are related. Really. We first found Maro's because some crazy American lady eating there ran out of the restaurant and grabbed us. My wife does that now. Just go. Great food, great prices, great fun. Join the cult.
