“Best Pistacho Cream Soup so far”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

The Restaurant set up is great, even ther is no a/c the large Ocean viw double deck terraces has the perfect ambiance for a semi tropical bay view of the Cabo San Lucas shore, if you have a private reunion you can ask for a private dinning a/c area where they keep the amazing collection of world wide wines and have a quiet great meal event. We were a week ago in a corporative dinner event and they serve this superb pistacho soup on a bowl of bread that was worthed the whole dinner experience, we have been at the restaurant as regular customers and we can also recommend the Octopus tostadas are different, very well presented and out of the regular line of tostadas, we really recommend the place, good food, not super expensive and great service by the owners that are always there to supervise the details.

“Not bad... Go for the singer...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

Place is quite big with few large rooms and outdoor patio with the view of the Cabo. But because it sits very large number of guests doesn't have any ambiance- in fact felt very crowded...
We booked online in advance and yet had to wait 15min for the table. Service is fast. Food is good but not spectacular. Wine list is limited... Mineral water is quite expensive - 104 pesos a bottle of San Pellegrino... Almost as much as a half of a lobster tail...
When paying our bill I was given it in pesos but they charged my cc in US $ without consulting me first. I was quite annoyed by that and had to explained to them that I am going to be charged the exchange rate twice which I don't need... They had to cancel transaction and start all over again...
The real highlight of the evening was the Cuban singer and her small band. Very talented, loves what she does and sincerely wants her audience to have good time. I hope she is paid well as I believe she is the one who attracts large crowds to this place...

“Great food, fantastic view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

We were informed that Puerto Viejo was a great place to eat, so we headed out for a late lunch/early dinner. The cab fare was fifteen dollars from downtown Cabo, and to be a little adventuresome, we took the bus back for about a dollar each. We will ride the bus more, it's fun and safe and the driver gave us directions.

The restaurant overlooks the bay with the Lands End Arch a central focus, the town of Cabo is off to the right, and view looks up into the Pedregal area. It was a great view at three pm, and would be fantastic at dusk with the setting sun over the arch.

Service was wonderful, with no language issues at all. The restaurant was clean as were the bathrooms. The kitchen has a glass wall so patrons can watch the food being prepared, always something reassuring to see the cleanliness of the kitchen and staff.

The food was served in a timely manner, and one should be aware that this is not going to be an order, dine, dash event. Take your time, the view is worth enjoying for as long as possible and the food worth lingering over.

The marguerita my Wife enjoyed was prepared differently than the usual method one might be used to, however, she enjoyed it as much as the other ones.

I had the chicken enchilada selection, and the food was great as well as the presentation.

We will return to Puerto Viejo maybe next time later in the day so we can enjoy the sunset over the arch, if there is room for us. We were lucky and got right in, we were told reservations are a good idea.

“A gorgeous restaurant full of great local flavors, unique view and great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

This gorgeous restaurant and bar treats you as special and unique with fresh colorful plates with local ingredients in a concept full of a variety of excellent flavors to taste, the view is imaginable, unique at night. I always feel comfortable but it also has a touch of elegance decoration. I had been several occasions in Puerta Vieja Restaurant enjoying with friends a nice dinner experience with soft music and also a super Cuban atmosphere full of authentic Cuban music, dancing and listening to the magnificence talent voice of Rosalia de Cuba in one of the most beautiful destinations to visit “Cabo San Lucas” in Mexico BCS. If you visit Cabo you must go to Puerta Vieja to have a great dinner experience.
