Amazing little gem on the road from Loreto to Mulege. Nathan (the host) was super helpful and accommodation. We camped on the beach in from of the restaurant for 4$ each and had drinks in the bar. The sky lit up of stars in the night and without light near by it was like a planetarium on the beach. The... More

We stopped here to get some blown glass ornaments. It was a friend's birthday. They have some great glass ornaments made by a local guy. Of course, we couldn't have stopped without having a margarita. We saw some lunches being served, they were great looking. One couple was vegetarian, and their meal looked wonderful, even a meat eater would want... More

The setting is lovely , and the owners friendly. I found the food very mediocre compared to the restaurants in Loreto, and overpriced for the quality.

Showed up late (after closing), and Mark, the owner, still made us the best fish sandwich ever. And a couple of margaritas. Then hung out at the bonfire with Oliver - German guy riding his bike thru Baja (and other places) and a couple from Tijuana. This place was amazing. And it was dog friendly too - my pup got...

Have had breakfast & lunch there, also stopped for cocktails several times. Food and company were great. Walk out the door for a quick swim in Concepcion Bay.

Buenaventura is an amazing place, my brother and drove on our motorcycles right past in a hurry to la Paz on our way to cabo. On our way back north I decided we had to spend a night here because of its pure beauty. Having drove the entire Baja and living in la Paz for six months, this spot is... More

The southernmost restaurant on the bay. Great views. Excellent home cooked food and good drinks. Reasonable prices. Highly recommended. Very clean, too. There's a great beach there for swimmers, divers or just taking a nap on the sand. Its next door to an abandoned hotel with quite a history. It is owned by a scary guy from Tijuana whose nickname...

The drive down Mexico Highway 1 along Bahia Concepción must rank in the top-ten most beautiful drives in the world, so you could easily miss this gem nestled into a small cove. Don't make that mistake . . . you would be missing out on the super-friendly Restaurant-Bar Playa San Buenaventura! Be ready to turn off onto the driveway where... More

Bar and restaurant ON the beach. Great food. Quiet. No jet skies or pangeros reving up at six a.m like on the other Bahia Conception beachs. I came to stay for a couple days and was there a week later. I ate in the restaurant every day with a different meal and they were all exceptional. After dinner you could... More
