We visited this restaurant on the recommendation of our hotel, and then ended up returning a second time. Our waiter was incredibly friendly and the food was very good. We enjoyed sitting under the lights on the street and watching the sights and sounds of the city. If you are looking for good food and a low-key but lovely dining... More

Absolutely lovely local restaurant. You fine under a palm leaf roof in front of the open kitchen. Very reasonable prices and great service.

This was our first meal in Todos Santos. Awesome! Battered shrimp tacos and grilled fish had us lickin our chops all afternoon. Great mojito too. At $8-10 per entrée, it was an absolute steal. Excellent value.

This was our first meal in Todos Santos and we were travel weary. This was a perfect place for a low key dinner. We sat outside in the back patio where the service was attentive and friendly. We started with the ceviche- very fresh and a nice start to the meal. Most of us had fish or shrimp, which came... More

Very wonderful experience in this quiet, historical town with a warm welcome! Small restaurant with lots of character.. Felt like moms kitchen with a gourmet chef doing the cooking! Food was excellent and exceeded our tasteful expectations. Waiter even brought out an added spice of peppers for my husband! Great setting and homey views! Prices were very reasonable!

This is one of my favorite places in Todos. Excellent mango margaritas to start your meal. Always fresh fish with tasty and flavorful sauces.The creamy basil sauce is what I usually order. The service is attentive and friendly.
