The night we visited, the place was less than 30% full, service was still VERY slow. Waited 30 minutes for a glass of wine, 35 minutes for dessert. Staff just chatting.....shame.

We asked the chef to prepare his specials and wow. Fabulous! Started with "sushi and crab roll" appetizer, seafood bisque soup then Filet Mignon/Grilled Shrimp entree and finished... More

Filet was great, shrimp was very good!! The staff and servers make every effort to make your food a nice experience. Views were right on the ocean and they provide a variety of pleasant music. We felt price was a bit high but not bad. Only bad note is that we were told we could order anything from the other... More

If you are staying at Casa Dorada, there is no reason to leave to eat. 12 Tribes is a spacious, open air restaurant with an authentic thatched roof overlooking the Sea of Cortez. The breakfast buffet is fabulous. Lupita makes delicious omelets to order and Sergio provides great service. We had salads and fajitas for lunch and every night there... More

They offer great food all day and specials for dinner every night. You can order from the pizza, sushi or regular menus. They also offer a breakfast buffet. They servings are large portions at a good price.

Welcome to 12 TribesCarlos Bonilla Souberbielle, our Executive Chef, would like to welcome you.The creative process applied to our menu will take you through a smorgasbord of flavors, textures and aromas that represent twelve different regions of Mexico; hence, our name. By understanding the local culinary culture of these regions, their ingredients and techniques, our chef creates a different perspective into what we call “Contemporary Mexican Cuisine”. By applying this understanding to his idea of Bohemian Cuisine – an unpretentious composition of different taste profiles – you’ll find a variety of different flavors perfectly balanced in each dish as you move from course to course. Simple appetizers will introduce you to the complexity of our main dishes,where ubiquitous hints of Mexico offer a new perspective on Mexican cooking. Of course, for a perfect ending, our decadent desserts are the perfect way to complement and truly enjoy your 12 Tribes experience.Thank you for joining us on this journey and….Buen provecho!
