I travelled to Cabo from Fairbanks, Alaska, and I want to make the best of each dining experience while I am here, so I did my research. I am staying on the beach side of the marina, but decided 2 nights ago to check out this restaurant after reading about it on Trip Advisor. It's about a 25 minute walk from the beach side, about 15-20 minutes from Puerto Paraiso Mall. Definitely worth the walk. I had the filet mignon with bleu cheese butter. It was fork tender, cooked perfectly, and was served with garlic mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables. It was phenominal, and only $21.99! I also had a bowl of the tortilla soup, which is served with thin tortilla strips and generously topped with chunks of fresh avocado, sour cream, and cubes of fresh cheese. The best I've found. The chef/owner Justo Couto came out to make sure I was happy with the meal, and is genuinely eager to please every customer. (we all know how impossible that is to accomplish!) I am not sure what the "mediocre" reviews are all about, but my meal was so good, I went back again the next evening! I had tortilla soup (again!) and the spaghetti with grilled lobster. I was amazed at how much lobster was in the dish. They did not scrimp on the portion. I ended with flan, which was delicious. The table next to me ordered a Mexican coffee, and the waiter put on quite a show with the alcohol and fire preparation tableside. All the food presentation is like you'd see in very expensive restaurants...sauces drawn into designs on the plates around the desserts, even the pesto dip for your bread is plated artistically! They have been open for less than three months and will always be on my list whenever I return. NOTE: Unless they have fixed it, if you look at the Trip Advisor map, the location is wrong. The description of the location is correct, but the "pin" drops somewhere in the corridor, far from downtown! It's on the Playa Grande end of the marina, by Senor Frogs, at dock #3. The staff is great (Jorge and Jimbo) and so is the food...you won't be dissapointed.
