“Great find”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

We just got done with a fabulous hour playing with the dolphins and upon leaving, we decided to have a little bite to eat. It was so, so good. The service was great, Mojitos were great and the food was unexpectedly great. To top it off the incredible evening out on the deck overlooking the marina was so beautiful and relaxing. Great experience.

“Great View!”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

I agree with MartinoCabo's review. There is just something about this place that is beyond words. It overlooks a beautiful marina. Really low-key with incredible views, relaxing vibe, cold beer, and good food.

Service sometimes can be slow (but very friendly and helpful), but you don't go to the Container if you are in hurry. This is the place to chill and enjoy a perfect afternoon.

I won't say much else. Just stop by and pretend you are relaxing in a Corona commercial. :-)

“The place to fall in love with”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

There's something about this place I just can't explain, you will have to try it yourselve! Come have some aguachile, nachos or a hamburger... Sip regional beer, try Diablo Blanco, meet the friendliest staff and the manager Jean Paul, enjoy the stunning view, have a date here! Friday night is the best, there's live music... Rustic, chic, friendly, picturesque with a view to die for... Affordable and still a delight!

“Really great food and beautiful outdoor marina setting”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

The container (the kitchen and bar are actually in a container!) is honestly one of our favorite restuarants overall. The food is prepared by a chef and always delicious. The outdoor marina ambiance is beautiful and the staff friendly and professional. It is casual and not expensive and they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner...and do them all well. If you are lucky enough to go fishing bring your fresh catch to the chef and for 90 pesos he will prepare it and serve with sides. We opted for the garlic chili sauce (mild) served over fresh veggies and couscous. Fantastic! So whether you are on a boat, staying in town, or want to get away from the hustle of Cabo, visit the Container...you won't be disappointed!
