A happy hour where they dont water the drinks down is a welcome relief that keeps me coming back. Prices that are not jacked up everytime you go, another treat. It seems the trend in baja is to give less charge more, but not here. The food is good bar food and the waiters are excellent, a great surprise that I have never had to argue about my bill, another thing that seems to be growing in this area. I will continue to take my friends because it is good honest value.

Very friendly place, became a regular stop for our family to start the evening with the best wings and and happy hour beer. Our favorite waiter Julio Cesar was quick to greet us with a warm smile and excellent service. Burgers were very good as well. Great place to enjoy the game with several tv's to choose from.

While walking the main street of San Jose Del Cabo, we were greeted and invited up to "The Retro" only to find a very cool restaurant with extremely friendly staff. We sat at a table on the terrace overlooking the town with a gentle Baja breeze. The food and drinks were great! TVs all around. Our waiter Julio Cesar was so super nice and accommodating. I was particularly impressed with the bathroom as it was clean and had a really cool looking sink to wash your hands. Loved everything about the place. I hope it will still be there the next time we visit.

We walked the lovely old center of town with all its Christmas decorations looking for a quiet place to contemplate our week in Baja California Sur. We had had a great week of exploring the desert and winding down days with simple meals. As our flight home was coming up in a few hours, we decided to have one last meal on the peninsula. We chose so well. The Retro provided a wonderfully healthy meal with happy hour beers (happy hour started at 11am which was great since it was only 11:14 when we arrived). The staff is wonderful and the tables outdoors provide a nice overview of the shopping district without the noise of the street (we heard many birds in the trees from the second floor restaurant). I recommend this place for the food, the ambiance, and the music which is a definite 80s retro slate of tunes. Just make sure you climb the dark staircase up to the restaurant without concern for the darkness. Enlightenment awaits you atop.

We weren't sure what to expect when we headed up the stairs to Retro, but it is very nice. Great décor and nice balcony outdoor tables. It was very quiet when we were there but so was every other restaurant in town. We had the Truffle Rosemary Popcorn to start - a very unique and different item to find on a menu, and it was wonderful. After a couple of weeks of either cooking or eating more local cuisine the burgers were a nice change and were very good. The staff were very attentive and happy to have us there. Hope to see this place busier the next time we go - it's worth it.
