We spend a month each year in Los Cabos. Since the new owners took over this place does not disappoint. It is an unexpected gem tucked in a courtyard just off the main road. It's an artistic oasis of sorts with great food, ambience and staff. This is truly one of our favorites after trying most of the great restaurants in SJD and CSL at all price points.

Physical presentation is very impressive--interior design and décor are energetic
yet very soothing.
Reception and attention by the servers were second to none.
Menu is very innovative and directed towards nutritional compliments and
huge flavors.
Pollo and carnitas dishes were scrumptious. Ribs were awesome.
Birthday desserts were Flan and the Mexican milk cake---so tasty!
Will return as soon as possible!

We walked to this beautiful place - from the entrance all the way through it’s just gorgeous. It was a little chilly and windy but once inside it was great and they had propane heaters at each table.
The service is totally professional and friendly. They’re fast to refill water which was a really great tasting bottled water by the way.
Per another reviewer we tried the hibiscus mojito and it was as delicious as it looked.
Presentation of everything was gorgeous and the taste was fantastic.
They’re Tapas style smaller plates so we started with two carnitas tacos that looked so good we forgot to take a picture, topped with a mild green salsa. We also had the chicken and carne asada that my wife and I split. It was all delicious and the chef clearly knows how to mix flavors with subtle sauces and nuts mixed in.
Between two drinks, tacos, two main tapas it wound up being around $65 and they do take cards or cash, just not Amex.

I have had lunch and dinner here in the beautiful courtyard setting and each time the food and service is perfect. Alex has been our server and he is so attentive and nice. He made our time there even more perfect!

We ate here the last night of our 2 week vacation and were sorry we waited until then. It was hands down the best meal of our holiday, and we ate at some really good places. My husband raved about the grilled octopus, and my pork tacos were amazing as well. Shared the sweet potato dessert to finish - sounds weird but was actually a combination of really interesting flavors - delicious! Beautiful romantic courtyard setting next to the Hyatt and excellent staff, enjoyed chatting with Rodolfo (one of the owners). Don't miss this place!
