“Our best meal in Cabo San Lucas”
Reviewed August 30, 2014

This place is a bit out of the way. In fact we were looking for La Fonda which had had great reviews but this has now morphed into Templo and we were not disappointed. this is modern food with a Mexican twist. We kicked off with fresh bread with orange and garlic butter. Yum.The cream of zucchini soup was exquisite. We then ordered pork sliders and duck tacos washed down with pomegranate margaritas. Dessert was a bit of a grande finale. Choose your own cake, syrup and ice cream from a list. The soft centre berry cake with hibiscus syrup and three milk ice cream was hard to beat. This was our best meal in Cabo & worth the hot walk to search it out.

“An Evening To Remember at Templo and Doc Wine Bar, Cabo San Lucas”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

Looking to get away from the crowds and relax in Elegant Atmosphere of First Class Dining in Cabo San Lucas, Go no further and try Templo and Doc Wine Bar. From the moment we walked through the door we were treated warmly with smiling staff and seated at a delightful table where we could enjoy the light classical music of the live entertainment. The menu was grill-wok with only the freshest ingredients of Herbs from their own Herb Garden. Every item is made to order and is superb. Wine selection is one of the Best in Cabo. This will always be on my "Bucket List" of places to visit for a dinning experience to enjoy and remember.

“Still in Soft Open, but promising”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

We came to the restaurant by accident, thinking it was its predecessor (which we had never been to). A hard location for a restaurant, but nice to be away from the business of the central area of Cabo San Lucas. We arrived about 7:30 on a Friday night. Only one table occupied, and only two occupied when we left. That was too bad. The restaurant is beautifully appointed inside. Relaxing and comfortable. There was a two person live band with a great back up synthesizer, and the music was great (note for honesty - the music was soft, had a melody and actual words, so not appealing to all). We had already had appetizers elsewhere, so each had an entrée off the wok menu and only a couple of locally brewed beers. The experience was very pleasant. Would have been better with a full restaurant, and the service still has some kinks - our bread and butter was delayed until 30 seconds before our entrees and our bread plates promptly sequestered away). The pad thai with shrimp and lettuce wrapped chicken were both very good. We had an ice cream desert which was also good. This is not your basic inexpensive Mexican restaurant. The atmosphere is nice and decor very upscale. The prices are not cheap, but the quality appearing in the grilled meats looks great, and it was nice to have choices not normally available at other restaurants. I really hope they succeed.
