Every visit to Cabo for us is a visit to Gardenias. Their fish and shrimp tacos are all that we ever get since they are simply the best. Add to them the pile of toppings and sauces that's brought to your table and it makes for a wonderful meal to go with beer or their refreshing limonade. Very delicious and... More

Good but not great food. Atmosphere and location are not that great but the service and willingness by staff to go the extra mile was amazing and prices were very reasonable.

It hasn't changed in many years; still the best most delicious local 'fast food' equivalent in Cabo. Fish and shrimp tacos, cooked 2 ways, with fresh self-serve toppings (30 pesos); great tortilla soup (50 pesos); ice cold drinks; fresh yummy ceviche; etc.; a short menu but a great place for lunch or late snack (open until 10pm). Easy parking next... More

Needed a fast dinner near our resort so tried Gardenias on the recommendation of Danny Boy Cabo. Another great find! Inexpensive but very good tacos with all the trimmings. I see lunch there in our near future.

We got 2 recommendations to try this place and it didn't disappoint! The fish in their fist tacos were huge and so good! The carne and nopalitos were ok. I got my order "to go." But they didn't warn me that they came deconstructed when ordered this way. Since we were on our way to the airport, it was stressful... More

We were recommended this place by the owner of Cabo fly board after a day out flying and it did not disappoint. Lots of taco varieties; I had cactus, pulled pork, shrimp and fish. Don't expect Taco Bell here, they bring out basically a lump of meat (or cactus) on a corn tortilla and you top it off with the... More
