We spent most mornings and a few lunches with Marco. A great waiter and friend. The food was yummy, loved the avocado omelette as well as the shrimp omelette and super bacon. This a casual, relaxed happy place to dine. They love taking care of you. The timeshare pitch was the first visit, never bothered us again,

We originally wanted to eat down the street at Habaneras but we didn't have reservations so we ate here instead. A great little place, no frills, outside dining, great food at budget prices. There were 7 in our group so we had a variety of dishes and we shared so everyone got a taste. Not a bad dish to be... More

We tried this restaurant for our first breakfast. It was good but pricier than Habaneros just a few steps past it . Staff was friendly and helpful.

Contrary to the reviews we'd read, this was the worst meal I've had anywhere in Mexico and I've spent a lot of time in this country, including Baja Sur. The "veggie" burger was not a burger at all but a pile of cold fried sliced carrots, zucchini and old mushrooms, slipped inside a soggy white bun. It tasted like it... More

We really would go back for the food and friendly service. Bummer that the (really personable) owner/manager tried really hard to book us for timeshare presentation.

Near the more upscale and popular "Habaneros" restaurant, offering very authentic Mexican food and drinks at very affordable prices. Had breakfast lunch and dinners, all were great! Especially liked the chicken burrito for lunch, good chips and great guacamole, Mexican plate for dinner. Nice place to stop on the way to or way back on a walk to or from... More

We've eaten here many times and always a good stop. Breakfast burrito and sandwich were awesome. Walking distance from Grand Mayan.

This used to be one of our favorite breakfast spots when we visited Cabo but things are just not the same. They were out of many menu items and neither wait staff nor the owner who is almost always present seemed to care. Food quality has deteriorated and service was mediocre at best. Disappointing since it is a nice walking... More
