Amazing dinner! A fantastic Mexican dining experience not to be missed. Forget the menu, have Deckman and his crew bring out whatever the Chef likes. We had 7 courses with a shot of Mezcal to top it off. I took pictures of each course. I can't stop talking about what a great experience it was.

Had dinner at Deckman's last week and it was perhaps the 4th or 5th time we've eaten there. Drew Deckman's food just keeps getting better and better, and his inventiveness has redefined modern food in southern Baja. No wonder he's been asked to be a judge on Top Chef Mexico! Great atmosphere at the restaurant, and the service was flawless.

He has a great bar, and hand-picks most all of the spirits - especially the mescals (we've had a tasting there; he'll pour you a flight and explain the subtle differences between each one). He's also now brewing his own craft beer, which is great.

Deckman's is a "Don't Miss" in San Jose del Cabo!!

My husband and I just returned from a business trip to Cabo. We go there quite often and never miss an opportunity to eat at Deckman's in San Jose del Cabo! Chef Drew Deckman, a creative artist when it comes to conceptualizing and realizing his ever changing menu, never disappoints!. Using only the freshest local ingredients his food is exciting and delicious. You can choose to eat either a la carte from the blackboard menu or put yourself in Deckman's capable hands, which is always a fun way to go. The atmosphere is causal and relaxed. The full bar has anythng you feel like drinking. and the wine list, which focuses on the wonderful wines produced in Mexico's Valle de Guadalupe, is an eye and brain opener! Deckman knows what he's doing. He's cooking some of the most original food in Sothern Baja. Don't miss dinner at Deckman's!

My dad and I came here back in December and I vowed to come back for my birthday in April. The food is that amazing! We got the seven-course meal and added on an extra course of foie gras. I definitely left there full! Each course is so elegant and the flavors and sauces match the main dish so perfectly. We already have plans to return when we are in town in June!

This place is pretty pricey, but totally worth it to try out new foods. We have had Gustavo as our waiter both times and he is amazing. He explains all the food, where it is from, etc. Great service, excellent food.

Creatively prepared food and beautiful preparation. When there was a miscommunication about one of the dishes we ordered, Chef Deckman came out to our table to apologize and personally take care of us. The staff's commitment to making sure we had a great evening was exceptional. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.
