My Fiancé and I were in Cabo from April 15th - 22nd. Giggling Marlin was much talked about before our trip so we went here on our very first night. We ordered dinner and followed that with drinks and dancing. They made table side guacamole (which my fiancé loved) and had some of the best chicken quesadilla I have ever... More

This bar gets going around 8pm. The food is not particularly good but beer flows and tequila shooters are the rule. As we had younger grandkids with us we really didn't get into the swing of it but be prepared to be strung up upside down and be gaga. Take a cab home!

Giggling Marlin has been a great place for us to drop in and get a drink and lunch. Believe it or not, they have a great hamburger! Their prices are very reasonable and we'll usually get "to go" a couple of chili rellenos to eat the next day when we don't want to go into town. Servers are friendly and... More

We went here with the intent to have a few beers, maybe a tequila or two. 3 hours later with a bunch of fun packed in, we headed out. We did not expect to have games and free drinks thrown at us, but the bar was entertained throughout the evening by a couple that run games such as beer pong,... More

We ate there twice during our stay in CSL - both times were early evening before any type of crowd. Great service (staff super friendly and fun), excellent food and just a fun environment!

The Giggling Marlin is a place that you MUST do when in Cabo. The staff remembers us each year, which warms the heart a bit. Fresh salsa is made to your specification table side. Most often there is SOMEONE who will take the dare to hang upside down and take a shot of tequila - worth watching. Food is great... More

We had heard they offered a really cheap breakfast, and we heard right! For 4 people to eat was $22. However, the food was not great it was pretty bland. The service was below average. The decor was nice in the restaurant with funny pictures of fish/ celebrities. I would not visit here again unless I was desperate to get... More

We stopped in here one night after dinner and ended up staying for lots of fun! Dancing, musical chairs competition, more dancing, fun, fun, fun. We really got the dance floor movin' and groovin'! Celse and team are tons of fun....be sure and stop in when you make the trip to beautiful, fun Cabo!

This place is a must to visit. I'd say we had the most fun here as compared to everywhere we visited downtown. The MC found out I was a bachelorette and gave me a lap dance! Then he put on a little show with someone from the audience. It was above and beyond service and the other patrons seemed to... More

The food was okay but not as good as we have had here so far. The staff was great and entertaining and the fish hanging gig was a hoot for the kids.
