“always a great meal and a great time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2009

We live full time on the Mexican mainland and travel to Cabo from time to time. A few hours at Felix's is a must on every trip. Not only is he a character but his Chiles in Nogada is the best.
On your next trip south make this a must place for a great meal at moderate prices. Buen provecho!

“Mama's and Felix's Restaurant.... mmm, mmm, GREAT!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2009

What surprises me is that this is the first review of Spencer Moore's outstanding little restaurant(s) on TripAdvisor. We're not first time Cabo travelers... we've been going there for well over 20 years now and have seen a lot of changes, save for the quality and consistency of both Mama's and Felix's restaurant.

By morning it's Mama's and it's hand's down the best breakfast place in all of Cabo.... maybe even all of Mexico (or the United States as well!). The menu leans towards traditional mexican breakfast fare ( the smoked pork chops are my favorite... or is it the Machaca Florentine,... or the Chilaquilles, okay, I LOVE THEM ALL! If you yearn for an American style breakfast, they have just about anything you can want including the best Stuffed French Toast on the planet. Be sure to try any one of many fresh squeezed juices, especially the orange-coconut blend.

Come evening time, the restaurant changes names and menus – Mama's becomes Felix's and the menu goes full-on dinner. Some of our favorites are the Chiles en Nogado and the Pozole _that even a local business owner and 32 year resident of Cabo whose family owns a Mexican restaurant in California – said was "the best I've had." She's not lying, it's that good. But there are so many other excellent choices on the menu that we've gone on a mission to try each and every one, and to date, we've yet to be disappointed.

Great food, Great service and Great ambience... you can't beat this place. Do yourself a favor and visit.

“Most Authentic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2009

We stopped in for dinner while in Cabo and had best food and reasonable price we have experienced anywhere in Mexico. The staff was friendly and personable, the salsa bar was uniqe, the mariachi band was romantic, and the food was outstanding. Not only did we get to enjoy an authentic mexican dinner while in Cabo, but we are able to "savor the flavor" of Mexico at home by signing up for his newsletters and receiving unique and easy recipes to try at home. You MUST visit Felix's while in Cabo!
