“Great Place on Medano Beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

Check out The Sand Bar on your next trip to Cabo! With beachside views and reasonable prices, not to mention the DELICIOUS food and cocktails, this place will be a worthwhile investment of your time and money.

Owned by two brothers (Cabo locals), The Sand Bar is on a prime location on Playa Medano, tucked between resort restaurants that aren't half as good and significantly more expensive. I dined here with friends and family on three occasions (for both lunch and dinner) during my last week-long trip to Cabo, and we all agreed this place was excellent.

Over the three times we dined here, we tried almost everything on the menu, and not one dish disappointed. I would recommend the Sea Bass filet prepared with garlic and olive oil and the Carnitas (pork) tacos, as well as the fish ceviche appetizer in particular. Management was great and the servers all knowledgeable and seemed genuinely enthusiastic about the menu offerings.

Also, they have 2-for-1 drink specials for most of the day every day, and live music on the weekends! Check it out!

“Nice Beach Bar and restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2014

We went there two weeks ago, we love the location and the staff is very friendly and keep you happy. We wanted to just sit in a chair and have a few drinks, when we were there last year they had beach chairs (Adirondack with sleigh feet) but this year they only had regular full length pool/beach lounge chairs, they did find a couple adirondack chairs under the porch which was fine with us. We saw in past posts that they charge $20 to use the chairs, but when we went there we asked about it and they said that if they know you and are a regular, they don't charge it as long as you spend enough to make it worth it. We were a regular fixture last year, so we were able to get the chairs without any extra cost. Unfortunately, we had many plans this trip and the one day we went there it was extremely hot that day and we didn't spend as much time there this year as we had in the past, but we do know that we will be back there on our next trip!

We've eaten breakfast at the Sand Bar twice this week and both times the food was amazing, the service was awesome and the price was right!!

I highly recommend the Sand Bar for any meal, we've dined here in the evenings also several times and we are always completely satisfied with the evening!!!

“Relax and enjoy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014 via mobile

We came during end of spring break and it was one of only bars on the beach not so overwhelmed with people where we can sit down relax - ordered appetizer some beers sitting In lounge chairs with umbrellas and people watching and not feel like they're being mobbed.
