Great fresh and tasty meals and juices - you can't go wrong with Bistro Magico for breakfast or lunch (or any of the special dinners that are served periodically as well!).

I regularly get their fresh veggie/fruit juice to help make me feel human again in the morning and their great sandwiches, wraps and even french toast are all great.

Good music, nice vibe and great people as well - enjoy!

“Magico at it's Best”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

Another place in the Lovely town Of Todos Santos to explore is Bistro Magico. This is a fantastic place to dine, meet friends and find great local art for sale. Rima chef/owner of the Bistro Magico is a delight to watch her create Magic behind the counter with the freshest tastiest food in town. Creative Breakfasts to excellent lunches, Falafel Plates, Soup and Salad of the Day, with the BEST Juices made from local fruits and vegetables. A different Juice combo daily. Desserts are made fresh daily by a young baking enthusiast. A guest chef is scheduled prepares foods monthly from around the globe. The interior is soothing to the eye. You will not be disappointed when you walk into The Bistro Magico. Saludos!

“An all around Enjoyable Experience”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

I’ve been visiting the magical little town of Todos Santos for several years now, and become familiar with its wonderfully diverse and constantly developing culinary scene. With a steady flow of international tourism, they somehow keep up with the respect and progressive nature of the “foodie community.”
In addition to some of the best traditional Mexican food in the world, you’ll find everything from authentic Italian to exotic Asian. But for years now the one thing missing has been an artistic approach to healthy Mediterranean fusion. Until Bistro Magico.
Now suddenly, alongside some of the best fish tacos in the world is maybe the greatest falafel I've ever tasted....and I spent the last 20 years in LA! The succulent and straight-forward menu also features favorites like fresh salads, wraps, couscous, turkey meatballs, and custom pancakes with genuine maple syrup.
I’ve been back several times now since my first visit and Rima, the charming owner/chef, continues to keep things fun and fresh with creative daily surprises. On top of the incredible food, the tastefully clean and artistic atmosphere of the restaurant itself makes Bistro Magico an all-around enjoyable and surprisingly affordable experience.

“The Magic of Bistro Magico”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

Not only is Todos Santos designated a Pueblo Magico, it also has some serious magic happening in some pretty creative kitchens around town. Bistro Magico has clean, healthy, delicious, honest food. A welcome respite for weary travelers wary of the heaviness of Mexican food, we felt well taken care of by the owner, Rima Lyn, who went out of her way to make us happy and tell us all about her beloved town. I HIGHLY recommend you stop by and treat yourself to a delightful meal and enjoy the artistic flair of the beautiful space as well.
