“Best dinner of the week”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

The ambience of the place is authentic Mexico, sitting out in the courtyard under the stars with grass and dirt as the floor. The food was authentic southern Mexico which some people might not be accustomed to. Both my family and my friends family were very happy to eat there and we all remarked that we were glad we finished off the week with a dinner there.
I had the quesadilla appetizer and the chile relleno entre. Both were very good.
Earlier in the week my wife and daughter had attended a cooking class that focused on southern Mexican cuisine. They both remarked how much the restaurant reminded them of the class.

“Over rated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012 via mobile

Horrible tasting enchilada verde. The dish smelled funky. I don't know if it was the cheese, as one other reviewer mentioned, or something else. And it had no sauce, so it was mostly chicken, tortilla, and cheese. Since 3 of the 5 of us had this dish, it really messed up our entire dinner.

The chile relleno was average.

Now for the positives - good guacamole, very tasty quesadillas, and nice ambience.

I would skip this restaurant, or, if you do go, don't get the enchilada verde.

“wonderful lunch.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

i had made a list from trip advisor of places to eat in cabo and we were directed here after a man who directs cabs outside a mall went through the list. only 3ish blocks from the marina. we were the only people there our entire lunch, which may have been early, 12:00. our server was excellent as was our food. i had 2 appys, a sope and a pollo quesidilla and my husband had a beef wrap, which he created from the ingredients on the plate. those dishes came with 3 different sauces in bowls. our corn tortilla shells were cooked on the open grill on the patio were we sat, under a canopy of trees. the coffee was the server's grandmother's recipe, and amazing, made with cinnamon. mexican music played in the background. a wonderful experience.

“An Authentic experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

Lovely dinner under the trees and stars, featuring high quality mexican dishes. Attentive staff and efficient service. The lamb was really great. Drinks (margaritas) well made with interesting flavor selection. Price reasonable for the quality and nonstandard menu. Our party of 5 was impressed.

“A must on your next visit...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

The restaurant is fantastic! The service was amazing. The food was excellent. The environment was traditional. This is a must stop for those wanting good dinner with a true sense of traditional flavor. We had two small children who were perfectly content with an appetizer option. I highly recommend the restaurant so much we are going back before the end of our vacation.
