A friend and I had a wonderful meal last with an excellent caprese salad followed by stuffed chicken breast with poblano mashed potatoes and grilled vegetables. For dessert a fantastic chocolate flan. Our server, Thomas was attentive and very personable.

Small beautiful restaurant, the service was outstanding. But the best was the food. We order a traditional ceviche, very fresh and tasty. The best was the last. oMg the best chiles rellenos I ever had. Great portion, great mix fresh vegetables. Something that you really have to try. We will come back in our first opportunity.

we live here, we eat everywhere, all the time, and La Santena is something we find outselves coming back to more than once a week. Their staff is amazing, so friendly and welcoming, the restaurant is tucked away from traffic and Hotel California so you can actually hear your friends when they tell a story about the 10 foot Marlin...

Looking for dinner at night and stumbled into this delightful bar and restaurant in the Casa Toda Hotel. Limited menu but the chef prepared white fish(Sierra) and stuffed chicken dishes that matched anything I have had in the best restaurants in Cabo. Eduardo, the bartender, made excellent margaritas. So for $42 US we got 5 drinks and 2 terrific dinners.... More

No complaints here. Excellent service, great food, charming atmosphere, good margaritas, super reasonable prices. My husband and I had our drinks and dinner at a sidewalk table and it was a really nice setting. We each had a margarita which were solidly good. Maybe not the best ever, but they had a good flavor and weren't those 1 shot of... More

This restaurant is attached to our hotel and the menu looked enticing so we tried it and were not dissapointed. The "lasagne" made with zucchini slices was really good as were the chile rellenos, the tortilla soup, and the chicken stuffed with padron peppers. Their salad greens were really fresh and flavorful and the Chocolate flan exceeded expectations. This is... More

La Santeña Restaurant and Cantina is housed in the lovingly remodeled space of Doña Tota's General Store in downtown Todos Santos. Instead of shoes and fabric you can now find super fresh Mexican dishes with local and often organic ingredients, a huge selection of tequilas and mezcals (including our house brands!) craft beer, and friendly service. Fair pricing and happy employees make it great. Come join us in the Cantina or on our sidewalk cafe!
