It's a long drive in from Cabo Pulmo. We had time to spare (rare for us ; -) so we dropped the luggage off and checked in early and then headed back out for lunch.
We took a quick drive up the highway towards San Jose looking for likely places. The sign for Viejo San Jose tricked us and we spent a few minutes driving inland before we figured out we had wandered into a mostly residential neighbourhood, with few food options visible. U turn back out to the high way and head back in towards the airport.
and then "Seafood" our favorite siren call, even after a week in Cabo, appears ahead, up on a hill, under an inviting palapa. We right exit off the highway and climb the short steep frontage road and pull into the lot.
Extensive menu, much variety. We told the waiter we had to be out in an hour to make a flight and he said no problem. Cups of delicious broth are served as starters and then we ordered.
Ceviche El Toro is a wonderful mix of everything in a zingy marinade. Flavourful but not spicy. Crab Ceviche was a mound of picked crab in a milder marinade. I added fresh lime squeezed in and a generous squirt of some pale orangy mayo based dressing. Yum. Fris shrimp tacos were hot crispy and juicy. A huge pulpo plate was delicious, as was the camerones mojo al ajo.
Aguas Frescas were fine, not stellar. Service was swift and friendly. Atmosphere was relaxed and fun. Clearly this is a good sports place as well, a huge screen was playing while we were there.
