Such great food!! Huge portions! The Mexican platter was so good and even better the next day for lunch! But by far the Best was the ahi tuna tostadas. I ate them 3x in during the week we stayed at Coral Baja!! Only downfall, cash only!

We had two wonderful meals at this small restaurant along highway #1 in San Jose del Cabo. Fish and shrimp tacos were incredible with a tasty sauce and hint of pineapple. The big surprise was an order of Tempura Stuffed Mushrooms. The batter was incredibly thin and cooked to perfection.

Friendly and very welcoming staff. We ordered the calamari and stuffed mushrooms which are delicious. Their linguini and clams are cooked just right and not too heavy. The seafood pasta is really flavorful. The ledge flan is very rich and creamy. They even helped call a cab for our group after dinner to bring us back to our hotel.

My wife declared their Shrimp Tacos the best she has ever had. I had a grilled hallibut with Veggies, and it was excellent. Only issue is that they dont take credit cards. So, go to the ATM, get cash and go eat there.

Looking for an authentic Mexican breakfast and took Trip Advisors advice and went to Sardinia Cantina. Was not disappointed at all. Had the Huevos Rancheros and it was amazing. Great sauce and the accompanying condiments with the flour tortillas were a great addition to a flavorful dish. Staff was friendly and we enjoyed talking to them about all the amazing... More

We had their imperial shrimp and captain's platter which was ahi and a pineapple bowl filled with octopus, scallops, and shrimp. The au gratin potatoes were phenomenal. We ate there twice over our stay and both times the food was phenomenal, service was great, and price was more than fair. The only downside to the restaurant is it is located... More

Sardina Cantina was a wonderful surprise! I read previous reviews on trip advisor and thought we would give it a try. Just off the highway is a hidden GEM of a restaurant. Passion and pride with service. Our waiter took his time explaining the main dishes of the day and there were plenty of them. Once we ordered, we sat... More

Close to the ocean, stroll from your seaside accommodation and enter a brick-lined patio with the ambiance of an English garden right off Federal Hwy. #1 One of our satisfied customers touts that we're a place where one can bring someone with those "chateau Briand tastes and beer glass pocket-books." Emphasis on Seafood but also serving salads, steaks, chicken, pasta, Mexican food & Continental Fare. Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner.
