We like the ambiance and always get a good service and a great meal here. A good place to sit back with a few friends and have a leisurely meal and a nice evening. A regular stop for us.

A couple of others had coconut or garlic shrimp. They were good, but even the holdouts loved the lava bowls. Our group of 8 had 6 different bowls, all were delicious. Must have is the queso with chorizo. Also great, especially the cheese that was burned crisp to the lava bowl. We opted for the pineapple ice cream dessert, 2... More

Recommended by bellman at JW Marriott. First time there. Arrived early, 5:30 PM, and was quickly seated. The menu looked good with reasonable prices. Then more customers began to arrive, and it was obvious that they were returning customers, including with young family members. The service was quick and the food was good. I had filet mignon and my wife... More

Great seafood! My entire family ordered shrimp and it did not disappoint! Delicious salsa & guacamole. Their popular menu choice are the molcaletes - a giant "lava pot" full of goodness. We didnt try but it looked great! Good for groups of all ages, families, etc. Fun music, nice atmosphere with thatched roof. When you walk in, a woman is... More

Good for Groups, or just couples. This place has been here forever. I always go here as my first meal to get acclimatized to San Jose Del Cabo. Under a HUGE palapa. Parking across the street. All the food is great, but the fish tacos are especially great. The frahitas are not american style, so don't expect sizzling plates coming... More

Went there before the Thursday evening Art Walk. A little out of the way but worth the trip. They are making tortillas as you walking. Had the queso fundido with chorizo and mushrooms and then the meal in the molcajete. Several different meals to try, I had the steak and shrimp and others had steak and chicken. Most shops or...

We very much enjoyed dining in this authentic, family operated restaurant. I had grilled fish with garlic sauce on the side. The sides of rice, shredded cabbage, and broccoli were nothing to rave about, but the bass was terrific. I could have opted for whole red snapper. The other entree was a hot lava dish rancho--steak, chicken, bacon. Excellent. Freshly... More
