Very nice contemporary mexican seafood. Ask for the spicy Ginger Rum drink. You can never go wrong here.

“Excellent innovative food in a cool funky palapa overlooking San Jose's marina.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

Look for a bright turquoise building along the dusty road on the east side of the marina. El Marinero Borracho (the drunken sailor) is worth the ride! The tacos chine and shrimp burgers are outstanding and the freshly made innovative salsas top everything off beautifully. Staff is very friendly and helpful and prices are totally reasonable. A great place to watch the sunset!

“Move Over Rosies - There's a new Sherrif in Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

El Marinero Borracho is located on the marina in Puerto Los Cabos. If you take the dirt road toward El Ganzo the restaurant is located on your left next to the bait and tackle shop with the shark outside. This is the new establishment of Nicole. Nicole used to be at Flora Farms and is known to many locals and frequent visitors to the area. She is incredibly friendly and helpful and always fun to chat with.
Her restaurant is fantastic. It is a ceviche and taco restaurant. The setting is rustic and relaxed and the food is out of this world as the fish is ultra fresh and simply prepared but exactly as it is meant to be. The shrimp and fish ceviche on a tostado is delicious. But the real show stopper is the panko crusted shrimp, fish, and recently artichoke heart tacos. The taco is light and translucent. The fish delicious and the filling is fresh, crisp and organic. Top this off with killer margeritas and a Pacifico beer and you are in fish taco heaven.
There is no doubt that El Marinero Borracho is rapidly becoming a local favorite and word is spreading quickly. Saturday nights are dance night and that goes on until the wee hours of the morning.
This is a wonderful, relaxed restaurant with absolutely no pretension. It is just about great food, beautifully prepared. Pure and simple. Stop in and see Nicole. You won't be disappointed
