Los Tamarindos is a wonderful 'earthy' experience overlooking the fields of fresh fruits and vegetables that are elegantly prepared and cooked to perfection in their large earth oven. We have a home in San Jose del Cabo and it's one of the 'have to do's' on our list each time we come. Mario is superbly helpful (getting local tourists unstuck in the sand with the help of our jeep, as well as what is the best choice on the menu) and a master at making Lemongrass Tea. Enrique has done a wonderful job of keeping it simple while making it a satisfying experience. If you're high-maintenance and looking for white tablecloth stuffiness - this isn't the place, but we REALLY appreciate the masterful cooking resulting in fabulously distinct flavors. When do you have the ability to watch your herbs being picked in front of you, sipping on a wonderful margarita while they orchestrate a work of culinary art. Thank you for making this such a fun and unique treat.

We read about this restaurant and believed all of the hype. What we found was completely different then advertized. We were treated rudely, found the food to be very poorly cooked, and the flavor of the octopus was extremely off putting to put it kindly. The Margarita was horribly sweet, and really we could go on and on. To further worsen the experience, we were lost as we left, for almost an hour. I would not recommend this place, nor would we ever go back. Too much many things wrong!

Los Tamarindos cooking school was a wonderful experience. The drive is challenging but well worth it. Chef Enrique Silva has an agricultural engineering degree so he really knows his stuff, but more importantly, he was delightful, engaging and fun. And the recipes were based on local cuisine which is exactly what I was looking for. I would recommend to anyone whether a serious cook or not.
