“A gem noted from a 20+ year traveler to Cabo”
Reviewed December 27, 2013 via mobile

Let's face it Cabo has many restaurants and also many reviews. On our 4 trips to Cabo a year we always try a few new restaurants. In November waiter Jimbo asked us to try it out and we did as it is just down from Playa Grande and Grand Solmar. Loved it - the blackened sea bass was great, best fish preparation I've had in all of Cabo. Christmas trip now with our family of six and we had a freshly caught dorado from that day of fishing. I suggested we head over to Taverna as I knew they would welcome us and offer great choices in preparing our fish. Everyone agreed so we went. Jimbo greeted us and said how about we prepare it six ways and we serve it family style. Well all I can say is wow!!! Everyone raved about it. THE BEST EXPERIENCE!
Looking for a nice location without feeling rushed, personal attention and an owner chef Gusto that REALLY cares then don't miss out on this gem. They're building their business in a very competitive environment so if it's not crowded don't let that scare you off. Hope you enjoy it as much as we have.

“Great service, good food, ok ambience”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

The service at this restaurant is simply awesome. Everyone is very friendly and honest and our server (didn't catch his name but he is usually standing in front of the restaurant trying to convince potential customers to try out the restaurant) was super helpful and accommodating with our order. The food was good although nothing spectacular. The ambience can be improved as the restaurant is located in a not so sexy part of the marina in front of the docks and the lighting at night can be improved in the restaurant.

“Service was Outstanding”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

Our small group of 4 decided to go to the Marina on our first night in Cabo. We visited just before peak season began. Jimbo did an excellent job demonstrating why we should dine in this restaurant and we were not disappointed. The food was terrific, the atmosphere was enjoyable and Jimbo's focus on the diners in the restaurant was top notch. We enjoyed it so much that we came back a second time during our week stay though there was no shortage of options.

Thanks for helping make our vacation even more enjoyable.

“A gem in cabo”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

An outstanding experience!. This was the pirate bar a few years ago then the chef/owner transformed it completely and added dinner. It is quite amazing, especially the superb quality of the meals given its size. We have never been disappointed.The dinners are the jewel but breakfast and lunch are also rock solid. An added advantage is that you will not suffer from "sticker shock". Complementing the culinary experience is the superior and always friendly service. There is also a decent wine list, all bottles are one price. It's on the marina but on the opposite side to the usual collection of less worthy eating establishments. Don't miss it!

“Wonderful experience!!”
Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

We took the fish my grandson caught to them and they cooked us a spectacular meal. We had Mahi mahi cooked 3 ways and each one was as good as the other.

After this great meal and service my family asked if we could cancel our reservations at The Office for Thanksgiving. We arrived here early but they were ready for us. Again very good service and we enjoyed lobster and steak cooked perfectly. Drinks were good and the flan was the best I've ever had. They had live entertainment in the form of a guitar player who was also a great singer. We couldn't have had a better dinner anywhere in Cabo!!
