Rustic dining area and wonderful people made for an enjoyable evening. We walked 10 min from where we were staying and enjoyed the views and people along the way. Our waitress, Marta was very attentive and pleasant. Great atmosphere and tasty cuisine.

Went there with wife on a tour of San Jose. Seafood was fresh and tasty, margaritas great. Staff was very friendly. I had a shrimp molcajete entree and the wife had a grilled fish with veggies, both to die for. They also had hand made corn tortillas (flour too). We were treated like family. We rented a cab a few days later to visit the town again, and we hung out at El Herredero for a couple of hours to have lunch and drinks and to stay out of the heat. It was very nice, much cooler than outdoors, food was awesome, as before. We highly recommend this place. It's about 3 blocks from the Mission.

You will not be disappointed with their food. We caught local fish and they cooked it up for us. The staff could not be more helpful. They also have air conditioning. Prices are good and Sonny is such a welcoming manager. Eat, drink and be merry!

We always go to Herradero whenever we are in San Jose, always for dinner as it seems so festive and fun there in the evening with the twinkly lights. Our current favorite is the "Grandpa's bowl" and for us, the beef, though it is available with chicken or shrimp. The meat is soooo tender and has been cooked to submission along with some sort of thin chilis and green onion, cheese melted throughout and chunks of avocado that have been stirred in at the last minute, keeping them fresh. Ladle it into their wonderful homemade tortillas and one bowl is enough for 2 adults. We need to expand our horizons and have breakfast there, as I understand it is really good too. Perhaps the breakfast is $, but the dinners, at $$, are still reasonable.
