On a very warm early August evening, La Panga Antigua was an inviting, cool respite. The gardens are amazing, filled with glittering traditional Mexican lights and the staff was so solicitous and warm. Just lovely. My husband had extremely fresh Sea Bass over a bed of veggies and black beans. It was some of the best fish we have ever... More

We were greeted by the manager/owner with a warm welcome. We were a party of 7 and were seated in an area of the restaurant away from the busy pathways (restrooms, kitchen and entrance). Servers were personable and attentive to our wants and needs. Beverage service was immediate followed by the menu presentation. Although the air was warm and muggy,... More

Last Thursday after the Art Walk we went to this charming restaurant for dinner. We were warmly greeted and seated outside in the beautiful courtyard. We started our meal with a beet and goat cheese salad and then we shared the pumpkin seed crusted sea bass with pesto quinoa. It was so delicious. To finish off this great dinner we... More

Quintessential Mexican restaurant setting. Beautiful outdoor courtyard. Watch your delicious meal being prepared by the chef in the outdoor courtyard kitchen. Excellent service and the food was great. My favorite Mojito of the week!

We visited this restaurant. There was only one other couple dining while we were there. The food was good. We shared a filet. It was cooked perfectly. Lots of other seasonings and sauce with the filet. Would have been better with less. The service was attentive but again there was only two tables. The bill had a tax added which... More

Wandered in for a cold drink and ended up staying for dinner. Grilled sea bass, shrimp with white and black mojo, beet and goat cheese salad, grilled tuna with Asian noodles - all wonderful. A trio of a Mexican mariachi band topped off the evening. Lovely courtyard setting and excellent service too!

We normally stay in Cabo and we decided to spend 2 nights in San Jose this year to explore the city. As we walked through the streets we found this restaurant. The restaurant is beautiful, the staff is friendly and the food is delicious! The mashed potatoes with mango in them were excellent! I would have never thought to pair... More

Wonderful setting in downtown San Jose del Cabo. Right off the square. Try for a courtyard table in the evenings. Delicious food and attentive service.

My husband and I, while in San Juan Cabo, enjoyed a delicious dinner at La Panga. Off on a side street from the main town circle, we were escorted past a small bar into a completely beautiful garden like dining area. There were a number of different levels where tables were located all within a glance of the kitchen. Our... More
