“Great experience”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

The food, atmosphere and service are fantastic. This is a "DO NOT MISS" place while you are in Cabo. And if you catch fish, bring it here the chef will do a lot of different ways and they are all fantastic. Trust the chef, you will like things that you would never order

“Lovely!”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

Our family of four travels every year to Cabo. This year we decided we wanted to try new restaurants, and used Tripadvisor to help us make our selections.
We sat outside and the garden style seating area was beautiful.
The waiter recommended we try anything served with the house Calpalla sauce, a creamy garlic sauce. We ordered the crab appetizer, which was a little messy since you have to break open the shells to get to the crab. It was delicious. Three of us ordered the fish of the day (yellowfin), and my husband the scallops, and most of us elected to try these in the Chalpalla sauce. Excellent. My son ordered the fish of the day with a papaya sauce that he very much enjoyed as well.
Highly recommend, and we will be back.

Thank you Trip Advisor for sending another great family our way. I am so glad to hear that you guy enjoyed dinning with us, and yes the crab chilapala is a bit messy but well worth the mess, maybe not a first date item to order.

Thank you again for taking the time to come in and dine with us and for letting others know about us we appreciate your support and confidence.

We look forward to serving you again

“Best in Cabo”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

I ate here with my husband, son (8), and daughter (10). Everyone agreed it was the best dinner we had on our weeklong trip to CSL. My son is a purist when it comes to shrimp and loved the peel-n-eat shrimp app. My daughter enjoyed her chicken tacos and my husband devoured his chicken miraflores. Lastly, I loved the shrimp scampi. For desert, we shared chocolate mousse, fried ice cream, and flan. Besides the outstanding food, the service was by far the best we experienced in CSL.

“Always our favorite!”
Reviewed July 16, 2014 via mobile

The food, service and drinks are consistently great at Misiones De Kino. I always enjoy the quiet, comfortable outdoor seating. This is always my first place I recommend to people. Our favorites are the ceviche, octopus and chilpalla fish. The chilpalla is a luscious garlic sauce but not too rich or heavy which comes with a variety of items including the octopus. Now I'm not usually one for octopus but I've had my husbands and it is tender and not over cooked. The drinks are my favorite in Cabo. I think they have the best margaritas, large, strong but not overly tart like most in Cabo. They also make a great piña colada. We usually visit at least twice every visit! With multiple drinks, an appetizer and two entrees we usually spend around $60-70 for the two of us which with the quality of food and drinks is a steal.

“Nice dinner”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

my wife and I had a great time in this place ,excellent strawberry margaritas and excellent crab cakes with papaya sauce , we were there on 7/10/14 to finish our vacation with a nice dinner in a highly recommended restaurant , my wife had the linguini with shrimp with the special house sauce , she loved her plate ,as for me I had octopus, scallops and shrimps with the special house sauce too , me in particular didn't like my plate that much and I think the portions for my plate were small , but I think it was my fault to make them cook all that combination of sea food , when it wasn't on the menu that way, I should of just order the shrimp with the sauce , that was the way it was on the menu or just a different plate ( they have a big menu ) .We enjoyed the place very much , service was almost excellent and my wife really liked the way the place looked overall , prices are very affordable for being a sea food restaurant .
