We had dinner at El Coral, both of us had chicken fajitas. The service was quick with everyone taking care of each others tables, if you needed something someone was always close by. The portion was big enough for $14 that I could not finish mine. The chicken was tender & there were lots of peppers & onions. This was... More

Located across the street from Tesoro, this is a delightful open air restaurant that serves really good drinks and a choice of seafood and the standard Mexican. I had their garlic shrimp which came with steamed veggies - a nice treat. The service is fast and friendly and obviously family oriented which we love. Again the owners work very hard... More

this restaurant has been enlarged and redecorated after the hurricane. guess that is why they are so pricey. my whole red snapper was average priced at $16. however, the menu said it was basted in butter with a little garlic. it came blackened. just ruined the whole thing. my husband's "Mexican combo" plate was below average in taste, size, and...

There is parking right across the street. Highly recommend the shrimp fajitas, and the steak is very good and tasty (for... More

We have been enjoying the meals at El Coral for over 15 years now and it is always our first stop! You have to try the tortilla soup!

When you come to Cabo you absolutely MUST visit El Coral! The first restaurant in Cabo, El Coral offers fabulous authentic Mexican food, seafood & mesquite grilled steaks. The tortilla soup & the Chiles en Nogada were so awesome I asked for the recipe only to learn, like most of the dishes, they were a family recipe handed down through... More

A visit to the oldest restaurant in Cabo is a must. If you love Seafood, and appreciate reasonable prices you need to visit Roberto at El Coral. The Red Snapper is "To Die For", and the margaritas are the best in town.

We stumbled across El Coral and they had seafood on the little board outside the place which is what we were looking for so we stopped in. Our waiter Jesus was very good. we are... More
