“Best Molcajete”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

For my taste, this restaurant makes the best stone cooked Molcajete. Very friendly service. Also a great place to have fresh fish prepared if you go fishing and want to eat your catch.

“Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

The hot stone bowls are excellent. Very attentive service. Highly recommend. The location of this restaurant is on the outskirts of Jose de Cabo but definitely worth a visit.

“Awesome food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

We went here a couple of times on our trip and were blown away at how good the food was. The hot stone bowls are to die for. The only thing that prevented me from giving it 5 starts, was the musicians. They come to your table, play a song for you, then tell you that they play for tips and don't leave until you tip them, which left a slightly sour taste. Go for some great food, but don't let them play the music, unless you're prepared to pay.

“overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

The only reason I went to this restaurant was the reviews I read on this site. I must live in an alternate universe. This place is only average by San Jose standards and below average by world standards. The view is of a dirt parking lot. The food was pricey, by SJ standards, for what you got. Despite the presence of only three parties, the service was poor. The waitress kept her back to us, and was depressingly condescending. I would not go back.

“Absolutely the BEST Mexican food I have ever had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

My husband and I eat here whenever we are in SJDC, which is about 3 times per year. Sonny, the owner is fantastic, and makes you feel so welcome. The chicken enchiladas, chile relleno, and molcajete are all our favs. The wait staff are very friendly and the service excellent!
Highly recommend!!!
