The waiter brings out his little cart in front of you and mixes up the salsa with a little tequila. This was worth going to this restaurant. They had 80's music videos on the tv screen as well as the olympics in Rio. The shrimp tacos and the other food we ordered were average but the place had a fun... More

We went because it's a landmark and holds some fun memories for us. It wasn't crowded at all, but the service was very slow and they screwed up our simple drink order. We decided to find somewhere else to eat lunch.

Used to enjoy this place many years ago. The food was very bland & terrible with no flavor. The atmosphere was very loud & we couldn't even have a conversation while we tried to enjoy our dinner. Too many party games going on. They need to focus on better food & drinks, not everyone in the restaurant is there to... More

We enjoyed a plate of quesadillas and we panned the room reading the colorful, humorous signs. While we didn't do the "hang upside down" photo opportunity, we got a kick out of watching others do it.

We have been told to try The Giggling Marlin, that it would be good food and fun. Must have been an off night because we were really annoyed with all the party games, kind of like The Office or Mango Deck. Maybe we are getting too old for that kind of stuff, but the food wasn't that good either. We... More

We had a late lunch at The Giggling Marlin on a weekday afternoon. It was a very hot day, and we opted to eat inside and were among the only people there. We were immediately greeted by Angel, our waiter, with high-fives, and conversation. We had rounds of 2 x 1 margaritas that were delicious, table side salsa and chips,... More

Stopped in late in the afternoon on our first day in Cabo. Really fun place, great service, good food, and quirky entertainment! They had me with all the 80's music playing and they make your salsa to order the table... YUM! I'll go back for drinks and dancing on the bar next trip!!!

We stopped in for a few drinks. Bar food was good. Entertaining drinking games with audience interaction was a fun time!

Christian was our waiter and took great of us. My 1st time here and we are dancing to the Bee Gee's and drinking cerveza!! Going home with a Tshirt for sure. It's nice being a tourist every once in awhile.
