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.

Don Sanchez Cantina is a great place to enjoy great food and enjoy the nightlife of the real people San Jose. The patrons span all ages and walks of life. Enjoying dinner with the locals who stop by for a drink with family and friends is a rare treat in the Cabo area.
An excellent young man who cares for the history and pride of fine dining makes salsa right at your table. The chef there prepares meals that look and taste great. We ate there often, shared the fiesta of Independecia with our new friends, and plan to come back as often as possible. Where else can you get a fine gourmet meal and drinks for two under $50.
The place offers fine food at a fraction of what you would pay in Cabo and no embarrassing tourists, just local families and friends. Later at night Salsa music and the young crowd take over with dancing. We never felt out of place even when us old folks stepped out with some moves of our own. Muy mucho Tequila
Viva Mexico, Viva Don Sanchez

“Don Sanchez is a must when visiting San Jose del Cabo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2010

My husband and I tried Don Sanchez when we were in San Jose del Cabo 2 weeks and it was great!!! Loved the personal salsa made right at the table. The Chile Releano Wellington and Filet Mignon were fantastic. And don't even consider leaving without a Mexican coffee (awesome table-side presentation) and trying the mint chocolate ice cream pie. Perfecto, gracias!!

“Don Sanchez Cantina is a must-see in San Jose del Cabo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2010

We recently dined at Don Sanchez after reading a write-up in a local tourist magazine and were fortunate enough to be taken care of by the host, Marco, for the entire evening. The dishes were prepared with high quality ingredients and the presentation was impressive. We learned a lot about the significance of each dish, about wine pairing and about the chef's background and awards. We highly recommend eating at this beautiful and friendly establishment if you are in San Jose. And make sure you ask for Marco!

“Best Fajitas Ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2010

We got a free appetizer (salsa that the man made in front of us)....and we all vowed to make it when we got back home (it was that good!).
Service was great! Food was awesome! I highly recommend the jalepeno poppers, and chicken fajitas.
