Ana and an amazing guy's name I cannot remember (chino?) had the crowd cheering and drinks flowing! Drunk musical chairs, beer chugging contest and great personality to make sure you have a good time

My wife and I recently revisited this great cantina for lunch and a few of their awesome margaritas. Not too much had changed since our last visit 13 years ago, although they added an extra eating area, the original Mexican decor and charm was still present and they still have the upside down hanging shooter bar! Angel our waiter, served... More

The made-table-side salsa was good but very mild. I got the spicey shrimp (diablo) as an entree and there was no spice to be detected at all. My daughter's fish was fishy and plain and the third entree was not memorable at all. The drinks were weak. The music was too loud and so old (Jimmy Buffet!) and the tequila... More

The prices were a little higher (99 peso for breakfast and coffee - $7.06 CAN) but we found this was common for all restaurants close to the Marina. At breakfast time this large... More

We were told you got to go to the Giggling Marlin, expensive, the home made pico was amazing. This is for the spring breakers, or real party people.

We like to start here while in Cabo because of the fun games and interaction of the staff w/ the crowd. Sometimes more of a crowd than others.

We stopped by here late in the afternoon for a drink. The place was nice and clean. The décor was pretty cool and it looked like the place was managed well. I could see how it could get a little lively later in the evening. Drinks were good!

A small group of us stopped for a drink and ended up staying for a few dinks. The bar was busy but not too crowded. The bar staff started some bar games to get everyone talking to one another and having fun.
