Went in March with our family. Accommodated us by letting change the sports channels to watch hockey and tennis. My in-laws loved the lava bowls and I enjoyed my chile rellenos!

Imagine an amazing meal made in a lava stone bowl that was heated over a fire.. We tried both the steak and chicken hot pot. These could easily serve two people and so I wish we knew this before we ordered. We were fortunate to be a in a condo so left overs where excellent the following day. This is Tucked off the main street but well worth that hunt to find it

The staff made us feel very welcome the moment we walked in.

All the reviews are true, the food is great and the service is wonderful. My family of 6 ate here and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it.

Try the hot stone dishes - very, very good

This restaurant was a dinner stop on our tour of San Jose del Cabo. Our driver, Del, recommended the tortilla soup and mixed meats prepared in a traditional hornado? (rock-type oven). The service was incredible, the young waiters were polite and spoke clear English. The atmosphere was traditional and comfortable. The food was absolutely fantastic, tasty and well-prepared. The quantity was generous, too. The two of us ordered the same, but could have easily split it. We asked for the second order to be wrapped for take out, but there was only half of it in the container. Not sure what happened to the rest- hope it didn't go to waste! Can highly recommend!

Found this place by accident - just looking around and they had parking! The staff was very friendly and explained any food you asked about. The food was so good. We went there twice and on the second night we tried their famous rock pot dish (can't remember the authentic name, sorry). You can order any variety of meat or seafood in it and it comes to your table in a boiling lava dish. It was so good. Would go back again - and we did!
It wasn't cheap though - seemed like prices were the same as at home. Expensive prices for good food. We didn't find anywhere that seemed to be cheap!
