“Great Food & Service”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

This would be a 5 star except for the proximity to the highway and the related noise. Cesar our waiter was great and very helpful. The breakfast burrito was excellent and served with hash browns and fruit, both of which were also very good. Easy to find - right on the highway next door to Trader Dick's and Subway. Bloody Mary (with horseradish) also very tasty with our late morning breakfast.

“Fab Food & Friendly Staff”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

This charming cantina is located in front of the Coral Baja along the corridor in San Jose del Cabo. It's right next door to Trader Dick's market. It's a short walk from The Mega grocery store.
I've had breakfast, lunch and dinner here. They serve an outstanding Eggs Benedict! The fish is fresh. The shrimp tacos are grilled, blackened or breaded. You can't go wrong with any way the shrimp tacos are prepared! The coconut shrimp is outstanding! The shrimp scampi and scallops are also delicious. The portions are large. Try the flan! Some of the best flan I've ever had. The best part about this restaurant is the staff! All of the waiters are friendly and make me feel at home in their restaurant.
Free wifi is available. Just ask for the password.
I enjoyed watching the NFL games here since their tv package includes games televised from the US. I can listen to the announcers speak English. Some bars in town only feature Spanish dubbed announcers.
This is now my go-to restaurant when I'm in town!

“Fabulous Food & Wonderful Staff”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

We have eaten here several times in the last three years and have never been disappointed. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all superb. Tonight, I was jonesing for a burger and my sweetie was craving seafood. Turns out I'm Jimmy Buffett and she is Jacques Cousteau. Burger was excellent and scallops were to die for. Small place with great staff - they should be proud of their place and their efforts

“Excellent Seafood in San Jose del Cabo”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

This cosy little restaurant is just a short walk from the beach in front of Coral Baja Resort. We had the yellowtail and the Pacific halibut with lemon caper sauce. Our meals were outstanding; large portions, delicious sauce, served with vegetable medley. The service was excellent, and the staff was friendly. Don't miss this gem in San Jose del Cabo!
