“A Family Favorite in Todos Santos!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2012

All of the dishes at El Zaguan are delicious. Fresh fish, tasty drinks and friendly staff make this a go-to dinner destination in Todos Santos. It is a perfect little spot for a family dinner, and the prices are very reasonable. I love the shrimp and they serve a delicious tomato soup. My wife says the mojitos are the best in Baja, and the kids love the fish fingers (dedos de pescado).
We can’t wait to return to Todos Santos this summer. El Zaguan will be one of our first stops!

“Phenomenal food, great service, hidden gem....Jon F”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2012

My wife and i have been coming to Todos for 8 years now. We have seen many restaurants come and go, especially those targeting the Tourists. We have eaten at most of the restaurants in Todos Santos and we like this one so much...we nicknamed it "El Zag". REALLY great atmosphere, super friendly wait staff and the kitchen is open for all to see. We have enjoyed the grilled lobster with Basil butter ( NOT to be missed), the great yellowtail carpachio appetizer, and of course my personal lunch favorite..the grilled shrimp tacos. Laid back atmosphere, great drinks, no tourisit hype. This is the real deal !! Not to be missed if you come to Todos. One meal there and you'll be back.

“No question, it's our favorite restaurant in Todos Santos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2012

I am amazed that El Zaguan isn't in the top ten, it very well should be. We have lived full time in Todos Santos for over nine years. Over all those years El Zaguan has been our constant first choice for dining out locally. We started going in 2003 and have been returning almost weekly ever since. Simply (but beautifully) prepared super fresh fish cooked up by the same talented ladies that have worked there for over 10 years. Generous drinks and great service by Carlos in a cool (and clean) Todos Santos style environment. All at a very fair price. What more could you ask for in a restaurant?

“good food and friendly service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2012

There are a lot of places to eat in Todos Santos. This is one of the nicest ones. The food is tasty, fresh and simple. I'm a big seafood fan and they do it well here. There are two tables outside where we could sit with our big poodle. This is not a fine dining place, but it is a nice friendly neighbourhood style bistro. Portions are generous and the wine list small but well chosen. The prices are reasonable. You'll eat well.

“Excellence & value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2012

A simple little restaurant with 2 ladies preparing excellent food! Guacamole, shrimp tacos, fish tacos, etc was as good as any and a nice setting off the main street in town. Easy to find, easy to enjoy and very affordable.
