We had spent the day at La Playita (the beach at Puerto San Jose) and when we decided to leave found that there were no taxis, as it is a long way into San Jose Del Cabo and there are no buses we decided to just wait it out for a taxi ... and fortunately found La Marina Inn just across the (dusty) street... We just ordered beer as we were not that hungry. However, the kitchen area and grill were right in front of us and I watched the activity as the cooks were preparing for the evening - grilling the peppers, making ceviche etc - everything smelled wonderful. I asked for some chips and salsa - expecting the usual. How could chips and salsa be this good? The salsa was incredible - I watched them grilling the tomatoes and onions which gave a rich smoky taste and it also came with a delightful smoked tuna dip. Fully expecting to be charged for the chips and salsa we were amazed, when the bill came, that they were actually FREE! The bar/restaurant is part of a little hotel - which was colourfully decorated with a nice pool area, and used to have a view of the marina.... sadly a huge ugly hotel/resort has been built right across the street and the only view now is of the back and service entrance of that hotel... however I would go back just for the food!!

As we were wandering around the marina area we spotted this restaurant and were glad we did. Not really wanting a big lunch we ordered light and it was amazing. My shrimp was reminisent of the dish I have had in Loreto and my husbands was just plain great. Nice relaxing alfresco atmosphere and attentive and friendly service. Can not go wrong here and keep this place in mind if you need a hotel for the night as the grounds were lovely. Inviting pool and quiet area. They were doing constuction in the area but sure that will be done soon.
