Not much to say that this title doesn't cover. Beautiful food, incredible service and a lovely atmosphere. This excellence hasn't changed from 20 years ago. Some servers are still working there since My first visit. Don't bother with the menu if you like lobster. Just order lobster combo for 2. With drinks and meal it will cost around 200.00 USD....

We went on Sunday August 21, after being back in Cabo since 2013. We have dined here at least 4/5 times over the past few years. Alma the asst. manager is very good, explained the menu options well. We order the seafood combo for two. I must say we were a bit disappointed. All the seafood was over cooked. Lobster... More

We are first timers here in Cabo. For our first night out of the hotel, we were search of something 'special' . Not sure where to go, we asked the hotel for a place that could accommodate our quirky food needs...a vegan, someone with an allergy to fish, vegetarian and carnivore. They said La Golondrina was the place for us.... More

A family favorite - last trip (year and a half) we went was a total positive experience. Everyone yearning to go back , it was the cherry on top of out trip but to our dismay, good food but highly overpriced, side orders low in quality, service slow, but the big disappointment was when I ordered a glass of iced...

This used to be a favorite. Now, they rip you off with sneaky over charges, adding on EVERYTHING---like each vegetable. Food is badly prepared and not very fresh. I think this is where suppliers sell 5 to 6 day old produce. Have had friends ripped off, others have gotten sick for days from VERY OLD fish and I will NEVER... More

We dined at this restaurant twice during our 4 night trip because it was so wonderful! There is a huge tree in the center of the dining area that has lanterns hanging from the branches and lights wrapped around the trunk, which is beautiful and magical to look at. The food is so delicious and cooked to perfection; we loved... More

Once you cross through the gates of La Gollandrina, you are in a private oasis. Courtyard dining at its finest. Nice ambiance with hanging lanterns and lights in the trees. The menu is excellent and there's something for everyone.

Fond memories from our visit long ago in the early 90s caused us to return in June 2016. The place looks the same, but the food is not as good as remembered. My fish was forgettable as was my wife's carne asada. The margaritas used to be humongous but are about a third of the size. The outdoor seating can... More
