“Service always great. Parking available and delicious food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

We have eaten here about 7 times over the course of our last two visits to Los Cabos. Love the open atmosphere, great service, generous portion and easy to find parking. Prices are very reasonable. We will be back soon.

“Good choice but more authentic options in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014 via mobile

Had a nice dinner but enjoyed other options such los claros and guacamaya's better. Thought that el herradero caters to the tourist and prepares a type of food that is common in the us. Flavors at guacamya's or los claros are truly local in comparison. Food at el herradero was good but not memorable. We enjoyed the bowl option (shrimp and steak) as well as chile rellenos. The quesadillas were ok as well as the shrimp tacos. Best was the salsa sauce which was incredible. Service was fine

“Great dinner spot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

Not disappointed! Our hotel bell hop recommended El Herradero’s and we were extremely pleased we listened to him. It’s tucked a block off the road near the Town Square. There’s no scenery at all, but a quit area. The drinks were priced slightly above average. The chicken fajitas were very good. We don’t recommend the carna asada steak though, a little tough (maybe an isolated event). We did hear about free drinks if you make a reservation after we had left. The service is where El Herradero’s wins my vote, top notch. I would def return again if in San Jose.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

we stopped here to get a drink and the staff was very friendly and helpful. the prices were not too out of line that we noted. didn't eat there, but from looking at others food it looked good, if we go back to area, we'd like to try their food.place was clean.
