We were recommended by our shuttle driver heading to our resort. It was nearby. We sat outside. Fabian quickly welcomed us and suggested the Cadillac Margs---nothing disappointing there! We enjoyed a leisurely meal with guacamole, entrees and even Key Lime Pie. I have been in the Keys---it was just as good! Allof our entrees were fresh and presented very well.... More

Hate to give away a good secret, but want to give a shout out to the fellas that work here! They make the place as much as the food, which is wonderful. Especially love the Mexican eggs with mimosa in the morning, but lunch and dinner are great too. We make sure to eat here multiple times when in San... More

Here is a restaurant that you must try. Small inside seating but a large outdoor patio with plenty of tables. Be aware that this area abuts the roadway and is highly travelled. The meals we had were terrific, while priced a little on the high side but well worth it. The fish tacos and the crab cakes were tasty and... More

Had lunch with family on April 9th. Advised the owner we were short on time due to departure back home. Believe it or not, he came through with delicious fish and chips.

We typically don't hit the same place twice on vacations, but after having a super delicious dinner (imperial shrimp was the highlight) we decided to go back for breakfast. The Sardina Cantina's breakfast burritos are the bomb!

This is a very casual roadside restaurant. If you don't want to hear the traffic then it isn't for you. We weren't bothered by that one bit. The food here simply tasted great! And they give you lots of it! I don't think any of the nine of us finished everything. I tried the ahi tostadas and they were delicious.... More

Our party of 4 made reservations for a early dinner on our second night in Cabo San Jose. We were glad we took a cab from the Grand Mayan as the Sardina is not easy to find and its quite a distance from the resort. Our dinners were superb, I had the Captain Johns Platter (NOT fried) which had scallops,... More

Just got back from San Jose del Cabo and couldn't wait to report a great find...Sardina Cantina. Food was delicious! Had several of our meals there. Breakfast was amazing, breakfast burrito my favorite. So much to choose from for lunch and dinner. Linguini with clams was A+ as was the fish and chips. Such lovely staff too. We will absolutely...
