“Good, not great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014

Nothing special about the atmosphere, except that its outside. You order off a chalkboard. We didn't realize each entree came with a salad and a bowl of lentil soup until it was served to us. Had we known this, we would've ordered less food or split a meal. I ate seared ahi tuna and husband had sea bass, Mexican style. Food was very good, but expensive, I thought. Casual atmosphere and dress. We ate early and there was only one other family in the restaurant, but by the time we left, it was filling up fast.

“Visited again and as good as I remembered from last year”

Another great meal and wonderful setting. Ate too much but really enjoyed this place again. It has become a must stop when we visit Cabo.

“Lobster... YUM”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2014

Loved this cute setting at La Golondrina ... also known as the 'trailer park.' Not sure why it's referred to as the 'trailer park' since it's not in a trailer or around any trailers.
You order off a menu 'board.' I had lobster. Probably the best I have ever had. My husband had lobster and ribeye. Delicious!
We thought about going back here again before we left... it was that good!

“Don't miss this restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014

This is not a restaurant to be missed! The selection is terrific and the range of seafood they offer is vast. Lobster is always a great choice too!
We just returned from our 7th trip to Cabo and La Golandrina is always on our list for dinner. We have never missed having a lovely evening & dinner at this restaurant while on vacation. Though there are many great restaurants in Cabo that we like, without fail, we do spend one evening enjoying the food and atmosphere here.
Please add this to you must eat list of places to go!

“Sorry, not the same”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2014

We visited La Golondrina a couple of weeks ago and we were very disappointed. The wives were so looking forward in having some of their good margaritas, that in the past, have been excellent. Well the girls began the night with a "margarita disappointment".

The meals we ordered were fair at best, and when we got the bill ,there was no value left; after the tip the bill (for two) was over $120.00.

Sometimes there are off nights in any business, maybe this was one...
