My husband and I had lunch at Los Tamarindos today. It was a bit tricky to find, but luckily there were signs posted at just about every intersection we came to on the dirt roads. It is up from Puerto Los Cabos, east of San Jose del Cabo.
The farm property is beautifully landscaped, with lush palms, banana and tamarind trees, as well as all sorts of vines and lots of multi-colored bougainvilleas. All of the produce is organically grown on the property, and the owner/chef, Enrique Silva, has a farmer's market there on Saturdays. He also provides organic produce to many of the high-end restaurants in the area.
We ate at a table by the balcony, overlooking the vegetable and herb gardens. It was the perfect setting- a nice cool breeze, and a crystal clear, warm and sunny day.
The Amuse bouche was a slice of baked zucchini with the most amazing and flavorful tomato sauce topped with fresh rosemary. We rated it as A+.
As our first course, my husband and I both got the calamari stuffed with sauteed vegetables and herbs, smothered in a delicious tomato sauce and topped with fresh thyme. We also gave this dish an A+. Fabulous!
My main course was baked rock Cornish chicken with vegetables and barley. It was very good, and I rated it as a B+. My husband got the regional baby goat stewed with vegetables, and a side dish of barley, also a B+. I was so full that he also ate the dark meat and wing from my 1/2 baked chicken!
The setting was gorgeous, service was very good as well. The chef obviously has put his heart and soul into creating this excellent and scenic organic farm and restaurant.
This is a "don't miss" place the next time you are in San Jose del Cabo!
