Trappers List HOW?

I have been getting more and more requests on my website on exactly how does a restaurant get on my list or why one is dropped.

The results are based on 4 different types of input

1.My own personal visits, at least 2- 40%

2.Trip Advisor reviews- 20%

3.Reviews sent to my website- 20%

4.Visits by my friends in Cabo- 20%

They are graded on a scale of 1-5 (5 being the highest)

I use 6 categories to rate a restaurant:

Taste of food, friendliness of the wait staff, ambiance, general feeling you have when you eat there, cost of food vs quality, and finally would you go back.

If a restaurant receives a particular score it goes on my list. If a restaurant does not reach that score or drops below the standard on follow-up visits it is dropped from the list.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS to all and especially to those that have used and enjoyed the restaurants I have recommended over the years.
