Food and service was very good. Be careful about seating outside as 4 lane highway a few feet away is noisy. A bit pricey compared to other San Jose del Cabo places we ate at, but we'd come back.

We enjoyed Sardina's during our 2017 visit, and went back this week during our 2018 visit. The yellow tail tuna was outstanding, and my wife enjoyed the bacon wrapped shrimp. Big serving ... saved half for lunch the next day. Everything was yummy.

The 16% is tax, some include (most) others add it in so keep an eye out. You might think you are having a cheap dinner till they add 16% plus tip and now its 30 or 40% more than the menu price.

Yes we do! Our website has all our menus. Trip advisor won't let me post the actual site. But it's what you would think it would be, the whole name of the restaurant. We look forward to seeing and serving you in August!
