What a jewel Maria Corona restaurant is, tucked away on a side street off the main avenue in Cabo san Lucas. The Restaurant has its own parking, a real plus in busy Cabo. Outside garden, patio, and interior dining are options in this charming hacienda style building, glowing with lovely tree and ceiling lights. You feel as if you are dining at someone's home. There is also live music, not the strolling mariachi band, but a subtle combo. Pomegranate margaritas are a must, but the wine selections are good too. Our appetizers included a bubbling cauldron of a 3-cheese fondue, with fresh tortillas and salsas, and a delicious dish of sauteed wild mixed mushrooms with garlic. Yum. They are known for their Yucatan inspired roasted pork shank, wrapped in banana leaves-an amazing dish. Their mixed molcajete (another bubbling cauldron of goodies) included shrimp, chicken and aranchera beef with vegetables and panela cheese in a delectable sauce we couldn't stop eating. The grilled sea bass in aromatic spices en papillote, and the chile adobo rubbed red snapper was so delicious. Lightly buttered carrots, string beans and chayote were a nice accompaniment. We were way too full for dessert, but were eyeing another tables' tres leches cake. Service wss friendly, attentive and helpful, but a little spotty. This is a fun, lively place to dine comfortabky and casually, whether just for two or a larger group-the folks at Maria Corona make you feel at home. We're going back tonight!!!
