We had a great meal here and we let Carlos recommend the food. The seafood was great and the atmospher excellent. Carlos came and spoke to us and recommended some choices for us which we took. Would not say that it was over priced.

This charming palapa restaurant is set in the middle of a garden just 2 blocks off the Transpeninsular 19 in Pescadero, south of Todos Santos.

Carlito is the son of the owner of Gardenia's in Cabo - the most famous fish taco stand in town. So Carlito grew up serving great sea food.
Now he puts his own signature on amazing fresh dishes of fresh fish, shrimp, octopus and sashimi.
The wait staff is attentive and fun as the food is good. This is FINE dining!
We had Carlito's recommendation for sashimi appetizer plate including sliced clam, scallops, dorado, and tuna following by a cooked jumbo shrimp plate.
A MUST visit destination.

Open from 1pm to 9pm daily.
From Highway 19, turn onto the paved street near the gas station into Pescadero. Look to your left. You will see the white painted building with Carlitos on the side.

Be sure to see King Kong - a black pug dog that visits the restaurant.

Our dining experience at Carlitos was just that, an experience. Carlos greeted us personally and gave us an overview of our dining options. We opted to leave the decisions to Carlos and we were not disappointed in the least! He transformed his freshest ingredients into 5 incredible dishes. The sushi was the absolute freshest and best we have ever had. Carlos is true culinary chef in every sense of the word. We will definitely be back the next time we are in Cabo. Thank you Carlos for a fantastic time! (and who doesn't love King Kong! He was definitely part of the whole experience too!)

Out door only under a palapa roof.
We went this place twice in one week. First time we were skeptical so we ordered one dish with a drink each. We were a bit shocked with the high price when we opened the menu as well. The food and drinks were amazing, but we were still troubled with the high price.

Well, after few days still in Todos Santos, we were still talking about the food at Carlito's and realized that it has one of the best tasting food. After saving our money for skipping a few morning coffee and afternoon margaritas, we were back at Carlito's and had a wonderful full meal.

Everything was fresh, flavor was rich yet not over powering.

We will go back again on our next trip to Pescadero.

Our best meal of the trip was at Carlito's. All six of us thought that it was the best sushi we had ever had - and we have had some great sushi in Los Angeles and New York. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
