I ordered a Falafel taco and a Taco Chino. Of the two, the Falafel was my favorite. I had the hibiscus margarita which was just okay. What we really liked here was their soy sauce based salsa. I know it sounds very different but the combination of ingredients used made it absolutely delicious! The view from the roof top seating... More

I'm not usually a fan of fusion, and this was no exception; the concept always tends to be better than the execution. I had the falafel taco and some sort of fish taco (I've already forgotten, clearly not very memorable) with beans and rice.

Had a great lunch. Ordered the fish and chips with no coating. Very accommodating for my dietary needs. My husband had the tacos and also enjoyed them. I ordered a basic margarita on the rocks and that's the best one I have had in San Jose del Cabo and we have been visiting for the last 9 years.

Great place to down some beers and munch on very good food. Mexican food with a bit of a flair. Love the area by the marina.

We thoroughly enjoyed dining at The Drunken Sailor a few times during the week we were there. The ceviche, tacos and drinks were delicious! The setting upstairs gives a great view of the marina. Staff were excellent too.

This place is not fancy, by all means. However, it sits right across the street from the San Jose Marina in La Playita. The prices are good, and by that I mean a lot more moderate than most places around San Jose. They have a few tables upstairs and downstairs, which are open air and you have the nice view... More

Fantastic little bar by the marina. Group of six of us had tacos, fish, chicken, vegan and all were great! The beers were cold, the margaritas were fabulous and the staff friendly!
