“Best Quasadillas ever!”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

It's a good simple cheap place for Mexican food. The fish and shrimp tacos were fresh and cooked well, but lacking a bit in flavor, and they didn't provide as much extra condiments etc to put on your tacos as other places. The quasadillas were among the best we've had anywhere though. We went there for dinner, probably better for lunch...

“Not as good as expected”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

Today we went to Tacos Gardenias because of the TA rating
We usually walk into town to Los Claros but decided that TA had this at a higher rating so we tried it.
I was very disappointed they were busy the old lady plus all the staff had very grumpy faces everything was very matter of fact no friendlyness.
Soda's were 20 but mine was 30 all beer 40
Tacos between 25/33 So reasonable value not as good as Los Claros
Quality & taste not so good the fish taco 33 was very bland the BBQ pork 25 was sloppy you couldn't pick it up, they bring all the salsa,onion,peppers to your table plus cabbage
This is the only restaurant I have been to outside of North America that we got our bill before we had finished.
It was ok no where as good as others in Cabo
Tomorrow we will walk another 15 mins to Los Caros

When we come to Cabo, we eat fish and shrimp tacos everyday here. Casual and easy to dine. Good for kids.

“Food is good. Portions are very small.”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

This place has all types of tacos and popular Mexican foods. However, due to the small portion sizes, this eatery is a poor value.
