“Best meal we've had in years! Tropicana Mocajete is incredible!”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

We had the best meal here that we've had in many many years ... and then committed the impardonable offense of going back the next night to see if the experience could be replicated.

We were not disappointed. The Tropicana Mocajete, billed as their decades-in-the-making recipe, was one of the most satisfying, unusual, and delicious entrees we've ever had.

But the other courses were as stunningly good. The avocado and warm tortilla chips were crisp, lightly salted, hearty. The lava cake was uniquely stunning. Yet another highlight of the evening was the Mexican Flambe Coffee which was heated at table side, and prepared in an astounding "flaming coffee-fall" as the waiter poured flaming coffee from one dish held 5 feet high to another and finally to the coffee mug sitting on the table.

It's impossible to capture the drama of the meal in a simple review!

The live music (mariachis one evening and the incomparably good Rosalia de Cuba the other) would have warranted a hefty cover charge anywhere else. Instead, revelers and dancers, lovers and girls on their night out, enjoyed 3 hours of non-stop, lustily delivered favorites and unknowns ...

Truly a stellar evening in a gorgeous, candle-lit restaurant with wonderful art and sculpture ... and we were glad to have challenged Tropicana to prove themselves two nights in a row!

“Fantastic food with old school charm”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We had a great lunch here today! We sat out in the front terrace and were encouraged by our restaurant choice when a local family sat down after us. The margaritas were strong, the service was friendly and attentive, and the food delicious. We tried the ceviche, the stuffed avocados (listed as a house favorite), and the fish tacos. Everything was outstanding! The tacos came with a habanero sauce that delivered the heat and it was easy to see why the avocado was a fav choice -- my husband and I were fighting over it! Highly recommend a visit here. The decor inside was beautiful and looked like it was a hopping night spot.

“2 times in one week”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

We first visited the Tropicana for dinner last year, we went back this year. The shrimp cocktail is amazing. The live music is awesome and they have a decent wine list. We took new friends with us for the second visit in 1 week and they loved it too, the decor and the building itself are really beautiful. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great group experience, or romantic dinner. We took our kids last year and they loved it as well. If you have the chance, have the ceaser salad prepared at your table. We will return to the Tropicana again on our next visit.

“Excellent Food/Slow Service”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

We just recently returned from a trip to Cabo. We had lunch here on a Sunday afternoon on our visit of the main town of San Jose Del Cabo. The food was really excellent. Every item that we ordered was awesome. The mexican app sampler is a must. The service however, was painfully slow; then again you are in Mexico.
