The chips and salsa and free nachos were the best part of the meal. Oh and the Cadillac Margarita and the Blood orange chili margarita both rocked. Everything else was just ok. We had tacos and enchiladas, nobody cleaned their plate. And though the place was 3/4 empty service was slow though very friendly. I've had much better Mexican...

This is an upscale Mexican restaurant with consistently good food and excellent service. It's a sizable restaurant and looks like it can handle large groups but offers comfortable privacy with various rooms and patios.

The group that wanted to celebrate the reunion of an elderly high school class met at Pedro's. It's a run of the mill texmex place, an architectural bowl of tile and stucco that continuously amplified the background noise to the point of pain. The event was set up as a buffet. There seemed to be no intelligence operating in the... More

Highly recommended and we agree! Located downtown quaint Los Gatos, we arrived just before 6 pm with just a few tables taken and adjoining bar busy! Waiter suggested the combo and a margarita. Chips and (delicious)salsa provided as we waited for drinks. The entre delivered timely manner while we observed many arriving for dinner. Staff prompt with drink refills and... More

The interior is the same southwestern theme it's always been, but well kept and attractive. Since the menu change, I find the food less compelling.

Pedro's has been part of Los Gatos in one form or another since the 80s. The atmosphere is good with table looking out onto N Santa Cruz Ave. The service was great and the food quite good. The chips and salsa were fresh and I got one of the burrito dishes and the tortillas and ingredients were fresh.

I came here for a family dinner with 8 of my cousins. I had the Carne Asada and thought that it was delicious it was beautifully seasoned and cooked just as I ordered - medium rare. Dos Equis by the pint was pretty good too.

No fru-fru Mexican food here. Just your basic but very good enchiladas (several different fillings), chili rellenos, tacos, chili verde and the like served with rice and ref ride beans. Everything is very good. The nachos are a must appetizer. And I like the sweet green corn tamales. It's listed as an appetizer but it's a good size portion that,... More
