“Fresh+Fine Prep= Muy Deliciosa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

We had an absolutely wonderful meal at Los Tamarindos. The salad was fresh out of the fields in a way that nothing other than that level of freshness can compare, picked hours before with a delicate olive oil and balsamic with tamarind dressing. There were at least four different kinds of lettuce and an abundance of tomatoes.

They were serving a creamy yellow tomato soup that was non dairy but had an amazing taste and texture. The eggplant rolls in a local farm cheese much like a ricotta, was the only dish that was slightly too salty--not bad and less than Mario Batelli, but a little heavy on salt.n The seafood special was fresh yellowtail tuna which was seared in olive oil and cooked perfectly. It was served on a ratatouille type dish with sautéed beet greens, a wonderful and rare treat.

The restaurant is out of the way in a very nice farm setting so getting there can be a bit of an adventure but really not bad if you get good directions. The service was great and very fairly priced. And it is completely worth going so give yourself time and enjoy!

“Cabos best kept secret!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

What a fantastic opportunity to expand my love of cooking and spend a day learning, eating and laughing! I was so excited to attend a cooking class at Los Tamarindos on the first day of my vacation and it certainly did not disappoint. I really wished I could have gone and done a few more. The lesson was informative, well paced and very hands on. The food was delicious and left me with an even greater respect for organic and locally grown produce. Enrique was a gracious host who helped broaden my knowledge of Mexican cuisine. I brought my mom back a few days later for lunch and everything was delicious. In addition - the patio dining area is gorgeous and was so serene I didn't want to leave! Thanks to Enrique and his staff for such a great experience. See you next year!!!

“Very pretty place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Had lunch here one afternoon and really liked the atmosphere. It is a bit out of the way, you definitely need a vehicle to go there, but it is really worth the trip. The produce is right from the garden and everything is made there from scratch. One thing to note is that it took quite a while for our food to come out (close to an hour) so don't go there if you are in a rush.

“Amazing fresh food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

This restaurant had only outdoor seating with fresh, farm to table food from a fram that was right around the corner. They did not have small, hand-held menus, but instead, a large chalk board with the entire selection. As we were looking at the menu, one of the chefs came out to tell us the specials. When he was finished, he offered to give us a tour of his kitchen! We ended up getting a family style meal, offered by the main chef. The food was great, the service, fast and the atmosphere was spectacular. It was so good, we ended up going back at the end of our trip!

“Very lovely”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

We really enjoyed this meal. It could have been a bit spicier but that is our only complaint. The sauces were beautiful the preparation and presentation was excellent. The cocktails were superb, all in all, a very enjoyable meal.
