El Grill is the kind of restaurant where you want to linger and enjoy every single bite and every single sip. I've been here three times - each time I have visited San Jose del Cabo - and am never disappointed. It's a Mediterranean menu with a few Mexican influences. My family often orders a round of margaritas and the... More

Of all the excellent restaurants in San Jose, El Grill is one of our favorites. The owner/chef is highly skilled in the preparing of mid eastern and Mexican food. The appetizers , mashed potato, mango salad with coconut dressing were delicious. The lamb was succulent and perfectly prepared. If you r lucky enough to catch fish, the chef will prepare... More

My family and I stopped in again the other day for some good eats. We got the girls a huge portion of spaghetti Bolognese and my wife and I shared the dinner for 2 combo. As always had way to much to eat(not a bad thing) and even took some to go. Probably will be back next week!

First things first, I am writing this review almost a year later. This place is so good, I'm salivating writing about it. On our first night in San Jose, we were driving down the main road looking for a place to eat. We noticed the palm roof and the big sign "El Grill" and that's where we ended up. Thank... More

Excellent choices, varied items. The appetizers were yummy! Portobello mushroom, falafel, etc. Fish entree was plentiful, flakey and cooked perfectly. A real find. Staff very cordial and accommodating.

The owner and the staff are very nice and attentive. The food is delicious!! There was a group of 8 of us; we ordered a few appetizers and then most people shared a meal. The portion sizes are very big and the food ever so savory. Highly recommend the lamb!! It is some of the best we have ever had.... More

The food was great the wine reasonably priced (not a huge selection but very drinkable), the staff is great and friendly. One of our top 10 of the 254 in the area.

Come to this restaurant! The food is spectacular and has a very distinct Mediterranean flavor. The owner really cares about his food and makes most of it himself. My wife and I have been coming here for years and it just gets better. Go for the Lamb or stuffed bell peppers.

We have been coming to Cabo since 1995 & only found out about this place a couple of years ago. Boy were we missing out! This has become one of our favorite places to eat lunch or dinner. Prices are very fair and every thing we have ordered on the menu has been perfectly cooked. The owner & his wife... More
