Walking for dinner one night we stopped to try it out. We weren't disappointed. Food was priced reasonable and we'll prepared. Brought our twenty something kids back a week later for lunch a few days later and they appreciated the service and food as well.

We walked to old town from our hotel and decided to eat breakfast at Herradura. Food was solid Mexican fare and service was very good. Reasonably priced and good quality. Would definitely eat here again.

This restaurant is a must when in Los Cabos! Outstanding service and by far the best dinner of our trip! Ask for Marta, she has awesome suggestions and makes the best queso dip with chorizo. Make sure to have it with tequila! We loved it!

Staff was good and entertaining. We had ordered quite a bit of seafood. Food was thought to be great until we went to another restaurant in San Lucas on the marina....food was not only cheaper but also better.

Best Molcajetes in Baja, always enjoy their new dishes and their tortillas a great asset. Their waiters and margaritas their specialities. Love to see the foot ball game with my family and obvious great food.

I think they would be able to do that. I would suggest a reservation way before and if you have been there, tell them where you want to sit. I have seen groups of about 16 there before, around Christmas. They seem to want... More
