Description: Over the last year, Don Sanchez Restaurant has “re-defined” itself both in design as well our approach to your fine food and wine experience. Our food, service and quality are consistent with the same standards found in North America as we strive to constantly improve and innovate.Proudly, the majority of our high-quality produce is grown and harvested from local organic farms. Our seafood comes from local fisherman ensuring the best, freshest quality. Fresh oysters and clams are delivered 3 times a week and our fish daily. All of our produce and seafood are environmentally sustainable and checked regularly for consistency.One of our standards is to only serve “grass-fed” beef from Sonora or American choice beef, which is aged to perfection, and consistent with the same processing standards found in the U.S.A. All salt used in Don Sanchez Restaurant is natural un-iodized Sea salt from Guerrero Negro in the Northern Baja Peninsula.

“What a fantastic gem! So So good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

From the street entrance you'd never know what awaits inside : a very large open air courtyard filled with personality and amazing food! EVERYTHING we ordered (and we all shared bites) was just fantastic. From the time the "melt in your mouth" rolls first came with pesto we began "ooing and aahing" . We tried lobster with risotto, grilled scallops, "pepper wellington" an interesting take on beef wellington, various salads, and steaks. It was all a really great surprise and so mouth-watering good, that we intend to return before our trip is over. Highly recommended! Note that it is on the smart casual / classier side. This is not "hole-in-the wall" type place. You'll be impressed too.

“dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

We wanted a nice meal other than mexican so thought we would give it a try. Actually had a very nice dinner and we commented on the sweet potatoes they brought more. Excellent for quiet romantic and great food.

“We love this restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

This was our third visit to Don Sanchez. In November, we had one of the best Thanksgiving dinners ever with our daughter and granddaughter. This time we were vacationing with friends and ordered from the menu. Thank you Tadd for coming over to our table to meet us and tell us more about you and your restaurants. Next time we're trying Habanaros.

Everything was super. Love the new decor and location. So romantic. The band is great (albeit a bit loud for dining). Next I am going to make my husband get out on the dance floor ;)

“Great Food - Great Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

My husband and I were vacationing in Los Cabo and stumbled across this wonderful place.
We sat at the bar and the bartenders were great! The food was excellent and we can't wait to visit again. While sitting at the bar a gentleman sat beside us and started a conversation, he happened to be the owner. He was very nice and made our experience that much better to get to know him for that short time. They had Latin dance lessons and then a Latin band playing later that night. What a great atmosphere!

“Great place for romance”

Excellent food and great atmosphere. The service is superb. Too expensive for a family dinner, but is a great place for a romantic dinner. House band is great.
