“Nice atmosphere, great dinner”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

We were told by a local that this was his favorite restaurant in San Jose del Cabo. We would have to put it as one of the top restaurants in town that we tried over our two week stay. Nice ambiance inside the open air dining courtyard. I ordered a chile nogado (this is not the stuffed chile that you would be familiar with back home in the states), which was an unbelievable fantastic meal! Apparently this is a meal that is prepared to celebrate one of their national holidays---I would highly recommend ordering it. The other three meals prepared for the balance of our party were also very well done. Someone in your group needs to order a mojito, they put on quite a show preparing it.

“Nice food and atmosphere but kids?”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

We were hoping for a romantic evening in a beautiful setting. While the setting was lovely and the service was very good, two noisy couples brought their disruptive children! It really put a damper on our experience. We had the lamb shank (really good) and the bacon wrapped shrimp (again very nice). We also had a coconut flan which was outstanding.

“Fun Under the Stars”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

We had been to Angel's a few times on our last trip and made it a point to return this year. The tiny restaurant with an open air roof is friendly and flavorful. The mojitos and cocktails are the highlight with the personal table side preparation. The waiter will give you a lesson in how to make the drink and then top it off with his signature body shake that's just hysterical. The food is simple and flavorful. A fun night with live music too! Worth the trip

“One of the 3 best in San Jose”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Four of us went for dinner. Two of us have made 8 visits to San Jose, and this was our 4th visit to this restaurant. The most outstanding thing about this restaurant, I think, is the feeling of personal service. There were statues of angels and portraits of St. Michael at this "House of "On hull" as they pronounce "Angels." Alberto made our mojitos at tableside. When asked where he got the blueberries, he answered "Costco". Food began with chips and bean dip or salsa. Tortilla soup and calimari for appetizers; we liked both. We had chicken with mole sauce (good if you like chocolate), grilled flounder (excellent), and grilled marinated flank steak (outstanding). 2 tableside guitarists, one sang. A complementary slice of chocolate-strawberry cake to finish. They offered to call a taxi and hugged the ladies as we left. We visited with 2 other couples at 2 adjacent tables. Most of the restaurant was filled before we left at 8 p.m.

“Seriously a place you can't miss”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

The first time I came here was around 3 years ago when the experience was absolutely fantastic. My family and I loved the service, food, AND especially their B&Bs (Blueberry and Basil mojitos). They make it front of you and it's a fantastic experience.

My family and I went back to Cabo in early December and we again went to this place; seriously, it's one of our favorite places in San Jose del Cabo. Not only were we greeted by the owner who recognized us right as we were getting out of the cab, but our dining experience was fabulous, the food was always splendid, AND we got another exquisite demo of the coffee flambee by a man named Ulysses. The food here is amazing, the service is amazing, everyone here is super friendly and nice, and overall, the experience is always memorable.

Try a double portion of the squid appetizer as your entree. It's something you can't miss. And don't forget about their B&Bs. You won't ever forget it, even after years of not having gone back to San Jose.
