I am a veteran of many Cabo trips, but for one reason or another, had never tried La Golondrina. Now that I have, all I can say is - WOW!
First, the setting and ambiance of the restaurant are beautiful. The dining area is in an outdoor courtyard with many trees. Each tree is covered in lights and has various lighted ornaments hanging from the branches.
Seafood seems to be the specialty, but they also have mainstream Mexican favorites. One touch that is a little different is that you walk to a main menu board and select the dish you want. Then you walk back to the table and tell the server what you're having.
I had a mahi-mahi grilled in garlic and butter, with bacon-wrapped shrimp. The shrimp had some sauce that I would liken to a light barbecue sauce and that was delicious. The shrimp were HUGE!
All the entrees come with a tostada salad and a bowl of soup. I wasn't too nuts about the soup, but that was just a matter of personal taste, as it was a vegetable soup with huge veggies in it. The quality was good, that kind of soup is just not my bag. I would like to see them offer a tortilla soup. The tostada salad was delicious and had some version of a Mexican vinegarette on it.
All of that and a bottle of water came to about $45, for one person, with tax and tip. There are certainly less expensive meals to be had in Cabo, but I felt the price point was well worth the quality I received.
