Description: Over the last year, Don Sanchez Restaurant has “re-defined” itself both in design as well our approach to your fine food and wine experience. Our food, service and quality are consistent with the same standards found in North America as we strive to constantly improve and innovate.Proudly, the majority of our high-quality produce is grown and harvested from local organic farms. Our seafood comes from local fisherman ensuring the best, freshest quality. Fresh oysters and clams are delivered 3 times a week and our fish daily. All of our produce and seafood are environmentally sustainable and checked regularly for consistency.One of our standards is to only serve “grass-fed” beef from Sonora or American choice beef, which is aged to perfection, and consistent with the same processing standards found in the U.S.A. All salt used in Don Sanchez Restaurant is natural un-iodized Sea salt from Guerrero Negro in the Northern Baja Peninsula.

“Good service but that's all”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

We wished we had't wasted one of our dinners at this place.

It was like any typical Mexican restaurant in the US which is not what we wanted to experience in Mexico.

We had a very bland guacamole which was pre-made and freezing when arrived at our table. We also had cochinita pibil which was extremely greasy and not very tasty. Our server was nice and the place had AC that provided a nice break from the heat but that's all the positives I can note.

“Great atmosphere, food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

We went to Don Sanchez on our first night of vacation Salsa made fresh at your table. Sea Bass was amazing. Live Cuban orchestra. Free salsa dance lessons. And a very friendly and attentive staff made for a great experience. We returned for dinner on our last night of vacation because we enjoyed it so much.

“Great Food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

This was a nice treat as our resort food was not very good. We actually ate here on Easter Sunday and they had an Easter dinner special which was almost as good as Mom's home cooking ;) Overall great service and great food! Don't miss out on this place!

“LOVE this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

After a long first day in Cabo, Don Sanchez was a great place to relax and eat. This is not your average mexican restaurant... it is more of a fine dining treat. Every meal that was ordered came out with total perfection. The table-made salsa was FANTASTIC! You gotta check it out.

“Fast and friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

The make at your table salsa was a nice touch. I also liked the non-spicy salsa verde. The food was very tasty and QUICK! As a family with kids, we enjoyed slow pace of Mexican meals, but sometimes you needed food to arrive quickly. At Don Sanchez, the service was very friendly and fast. They also have kids meals, which is nicely followed by a small bowl of ice cream.
