Well worth the dinner experience. The shrimp with garlic was delicious and very reasonably priced. We'll be back our next trip to San Carlos.

Servers spoke good english and were helpful with the menu options. Food was delicious and served up rather quickly. The octopus was delicious as were Jimmy's... More

Large open palapa, snappy wait staff, very good seafood menu, good ocean view, a bit over priced but the place is always packed.

Had dinner with group of friends on weekend night. Very varied menu with some iterations of dishes that are not commonly on other menus. Food was excellent and fresh. Staff was friendly and responsive.

I had fond memories of Los Arbolitos, sadly as they have gotten larger with franchises the quality of food and the experience has suffered. If you are looking for a mediocre Mexican restaurant in San Carlos and Guaymas you can find it at Los Arbolitos.

We found this place by accident . The fresh fix was grilled and seasoned to perfection. Our son had the fried fish and said he now loves fish! It's a bit hard to find as it is on thr second floor and part of a mini plaza. But worth the hunt. If you dont like fried shrimp with the skin... More

Beautiful location, and fantastic food. The service has been great, every single time. The waiters are attentive but not intrusive. Wonderful view of the water from across the street (2nd floor). We have never been disappointed here!

I family and I we're visiting San Carlos for diving and vacationing. We stopped at this restaurant after a long day on the boat. We enjoyed watching the dolphins frolicking the bay as we dined. The service was fabulous, they are very prompt, which is nice. We have a vegetarian among us whose only option on the menu was quesadilla... More

A fun open air, upstairs restaurant, offering lots of fresh fish options. The "big fish" is a huge, crispy grilled fish large enough to share with a few people. Super tasty.

Lots of choices in San Carlos but this place was always busy so we decided to give it a try. A shrimp dish that prepares them 3 different ways was recommended but was just okay. Kind of expensive for just 6 shrimp, some rice and some dry greens. The kids had some things off the child's menu that were not... More
