I spent 7 days in Cabos and tried many different restaurants on the Marina. No one came close to the food or the service. We visited the restaurant twice during this week and amongst our party sampled 5 different entrees. The presentation and food were equally fantastic!

This restaurant is right in the marina by the docks. We took an all day fishing trip and caught a 200+ pound striped marlin. We took the fish to Pochos and told them we'd be back later. They served up an amazing dinner, cooked our fish in several different styles and presented in a family style, everyone try-it-all way. The... More

This restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside but the food is excellent. I had the stuffed fish and it was incredible. My wife had blackened Mahi Mahi with mango sauce and hers was excellent also.

Pochos prepared the Marlin fillets that our party dropped off from the fish one of our party caught. We came back three hours later for dinner. The waiter recommendation of a variety platter of flavors was excellent! Great service, sides, and prices. It was a fun experience!

Very accommodating for my son's allergies. Fun atmosphere with the travelling mariachis. Not a lot of seating, but a great view of the marina. Quite warm on the day we visited -- no AC (except in the bathroom). They had a few fans. I'm sure the evening is quite pleasant there. Authentic Mexican food.

This is a nice restaurant with excellent service. The special is Molcajete which is a wonderful dish that includes local ingredients: shrimp, beef, chicken cactus and various peppers. It can feed 2-3 people. The drinks are good. It is on the pier close to everything.

It is one of the tiny establishments along the marina but the service and food were excellent. Very friendly staff and great margaritas. We'll be eating there again.

One of the most enjoyable restaurants we've been to while visiting Cabo. All four of our visits have had great service, delicious food, and a great view. We've done the Surf & Turf platter most of our visits that includes freshly caught fish, shrimp, and steak for four. Dinner was amazing; we really enjoyed the coconut shrimp and the blackened...

We were trying to find someplace to eat on the marina, and walked by and the guy in front stopped us and we looked at the food, another family of three were sitting there and said "eat here it is great" so we did. We were not disappointed! Great service from Jimbo! Coconut shrimp were really good. The atmosphere was... More
