We ate at Maro's during our recent trip to Cabo. As soon as we were seated, it was apparent that this restaurant is a place you go if you want to "party". I guess, my wife and I didn't whoop it up enough when we arrived and this seemed to "tick off" our waiter (more about this later). We both ordered one of Maro's surf and turf specials. The food was very tasty - lobster and shrimp very good, steak tasty but a little tough! After we had finished our dinner and were finishing our drinks, our bill was dropped off by another waiter without our requesting it. When they owner came by to pick our payment up, we said that we wanted another drink which we got. Shortly thereafter, our waiter came by with the bill again, "saying you asked for the bill?" When we said "no", he took it away but then appeared again about 5 minutes later asking the same thing, even though the restaurant was not particularly busy. This time we took the hint, finished our drinks, paid (but left a small tip), and left. We have been coming to Mexico for a number of years and have never been treated this way in a restaurant - it is supposedly poor manners to bring the bill without it being being requested. To say the least we will never eat in the restaurant again!!!

We are Australians and we are very experienced travellers and expert food critics.
We don't write about ANYWHERE unless it is EXCEPTIONAL.

We both have different tastes but Maro caters for all.
Shrimp, Lobster. Steaks & all the normal fare,
Plus fantastic drinks.....margaritas, mojitos, beer !
We love great food and 'value for money' too and Maro's is both and then some.
Maro himself was always there and he makes everyone feel like a SPECIAL guest.
We had some great meals in Cabo but Maro's is the stand out and 'Number 1' in our books.
And judging from the photos and flags on the walls it is not just our favourite Cabo restaurant !
Plastic chairs and table cloths... casual true Mexican dining and FANTASTIC food!
And FUN ! We ate there 3 times in a week. Maro was always there and he and the staff make sure everyone has a GREAT Mexican restaurant experience. Adults and Children alike.
Simply put... Just go there !
We can't wait to go back to Cabo and when we do we will eat here every second night!
Just the Best Value in Cabo +++ For meals and drinks.
Half the price of the resorts
It is only a short walk from the Marina and the centre of town. Off main road Larzaro Cardenas
Whatever you do in Cabo .... Look for the big Yellow sign and find Maro !
It is in Av. Hildago St./N. Across from La Dolce Restaurant

The best good, atmosphere and value. We go there lots when in Cabo. Maro and his staff are friendly and fun. If you don't go, you are missing out.

We dined in the early evening during off-peak season in Los Cabos. The seafood (lobster and shrimp) was delicious, as was the chocolate cake. The staff went out of their way to make sure we had a good time. We had such a good experience the first time that we made sure to go back.

Maro's has great food at great prices. It does not look like a 5 stray place but it is. The service is wonderful. They even parked my car. We car last year and could not wait to come back. This time we brought the whole famiily and everyone loved it.
