Went here because of all the positive reviews from Trip Advisor. One of the worst meals I've ever had anywhere. I don't eat spicy food and explained to our waiter I don't eat spicy. SO I ordered fried calamari and it was burnt and soggy tasting. I then ordered ahi tuna and asked them to make it raw in the middle. I also asked if the sauce was spicy and our waiter said just a little. Upon receiving my dinner I cut the tuna in half and couldn't believe it was cooked throughout the whole filet. I asked the waiter to please get me another piece but to make the center raw. After a few minutes this time it was so raw that it was still cold in the middle. To boot the sauce was very spicy. Had to send it back again but this time ordered salmon. It was o.k. FIrst time I ever had to send a meal back. This place was not for me. Had a great meal the next nite at Voila Bistro.

The outside courtyard dining is truly beautiful and romantic. The food was fantastic! I had fresh swordfish that was out of this world. We enjoyed a great bottle of wine. The service was perfect. By far my favorite dining experience in Cabo.

La Panga sits on a side street in San Jose del Cabo, it doesn't look like much from the outside but step insde for a wonderful meal in a gorgeous setting. The restruant is open air wth just the right amount of white lights strung around to provide a romantic glow. All the service was excellent, attentve but not over the top. The menu had a great variety of seafood wth unique spices and local flair. The prices are higher than some would expect in Mexico, but we had drinks, appetizers, and two entrees for under $100 wth gratuity. We would definitely return!

Great atmosphere in an old building in the center of "restaurant row" in San Jose del Cabo. Everything smooth and pleasant from the comfortable chairs, the great chandelier, the excellent service, and the eclectic menu the the terrific food. One of our favorites.
