We were told by fellow travelers that we must stop at Mario's for dinner and for their RV site. We did just that and were not disappointed. The owners were very engaging, funny, helpful, friendly and the food was really good. I'd eat here every time I was in the area.

Beautiful old palapa has been rebuilt, but the warm and friendly service remains as always. An excellent value and huevos rancheros were available on request as a vegetarian selection for an early supper. All served beautifully, even the simple quesadillas plate was presented as a lovely feast.

Mario's restaurant is a large palapa style building on the west side of Highway 1 just south of the military base, south of the Baja - Baja Sur state line. We stopped for breakfast on the recommendation of friends and thoroughly enjoyed everything. Our egg dishes were cooked perfectly, and the accompanying side dishes (beans, nopales) were tasty. With fresh... More

We tried 3 restaurants in Guerrero Negro and this one was the best by far. We had a seafood combination and everyone enjoyed it. Excellent service too.

My husband ordered their lobster and it was cooked to perfection as well as being presented in an appetizing fashion. My son and I both ordered. Fish. All of us received very generous portions and the food was delicious. The service was excellent and despite our lack of Spanish we were able to communicate easily with the staff, in addition...

I love the restaurant and stop going both ways when I;m doing the Baja. The callos de Leon are to die for and all the shells cover the ground in the rv park. They always have a homemade soup to go with the dinner. Great margaritas too. ot showers after a long day of driving.

Aside from the wait, you cannot beat the menu here. the Seafood combo was just that: a combination of all of the delicasies of the sea! Lobster, scallops, shrimp and halibut.

This review is for Mario's Palapa restaurant and RV Park, immediately off the Hwy. 1 just past the agricultural stop and pest spraying station. The RV park is basically a gravel lot decorated with lots of scallop shells, on the outskirts of Guerrero Negro. It has a large number of pull-through and back-in spots, all with a septic hookup, water... More
