We went our last night there. Once again when we visit Cabo it's a must dinner night out. The owner cooks like a chef. A Mexican seafood that is incredible and a wait staff that is very attentive. Let the pictures tell the story.

This place was so good, we went twice on our short stay. It's up a couple blocks from the main drag in Cabo on 16 de Septiembre and totally worth the very short walk off the main street. I am a big Mexican style seafood fan but was prego so could not have my favorites, ceviche and aguachile, because neither... More

Marlin's empanadas delightful, ceviche was tasty but the price for 1 tostada was kind of expensive. Be careful with the habanero's sauce

A true Mexican seafood restaurant. Loved the food, and the open air "Mexican" feel. Hope I can return soon.

Shrimp fajitas were wonderful, but the drinks were watered down with no taste. How can a margarita in Mexico have no taste? Tried twice and it was awful. Sangria was tasteless as well. The atmosphere was dull and boring.

I was planning to write this review long before Ismael gave me a shot of tequila on the house. Reason being that my wife had some incredible garlic octopus al gusto, and my shrimp and marlin tacos were delicious. More importantly, we looked around the restaurant, and everyone was totally happy...enjoying the food, chatting with the waiter, chatting with the... More

One of the best local place to eat Mexican food, very clean. Ismael was great. Very good customer service, definitely awesome. Very nice , We felt like we were welcomed to someone's house to eat; great hospitality. Margaritas are great, even got a free shot of tequila to top it off. We will be back. Nice and quiet place.

Above average Mexican seafood. We had the fried fish which was excellent and filling. Also had the bacon wrapped shrimp.. bigger than we expected, tasted great. Shrimp and octopus cocktail tasted like it's supposed to so I enjoyed that. Marlin taco was meaty and tasty, shrimp taco was fair. My kids loved the flan. Overall a cool lil spot to... More
