Had a blast at this place, the bartender was very friendly and the prices were reasonable (you can't go wrong with 2-for-1 margaritas! I would have tried their main attraction - getting hoisted like a fish - but the lines were too long. Great place to stop and visit!

We stopped in to have a beer and ended up staying for quite a while. The service was excellent, the margaritas outstanding, and then we had some very unexpected entertainment. If you want to get off the marina tourist trap zone and just hang in a good 'off Main Street' bar, this is it. The decor is funny and entertaining,... More

Friends told us we had to stop in the Giggling Marlin while we were in Cabo. We weren't disappointed. We all had their signature Margarita and it was great! Appetizers were good as well. While commercialized pretty well, a fun place for a drink or two.

Wife and I dropped by for a beer on a warm day in Cabo. Tableside prepared salsa was amazing. Looked like a lot of fun, abit touristic but on balance staff were great and was good to knock it off the "must visit in Cabo" list.

The Giggling Marlin is basically geared towards tourists looking to drink. They held a couple contests (beer-drinking race between customers & staff, musical chairs, etc.) It's fun and good from some laughs. HOWEVER - the girls next to us "won" the musical chairs contest and were supposed to win a bucket of beer but were then told they'd have to... More

My family and I visited here for lunch while on vacation. We had excellent service, and the restaurant has a fun atmosphere. Fresh salsa was made at our table before we ate which was very good. Margaritas were awesome, and so was the food. We ordered nachos, chicken quesadillas, and the taco sampler. Everything was much enjoyed! Our waiter even... More

We have eaten at the Giggling Marlin several times. The meals are very good. The salsas and guacamole are made at the table to your liking. Aaron is a wonderful young man who excels at his job

This must visit restaurant is close to the pier and in the middle of shops. Salsa is made at your table to your specifications. The food is exceptionally good for casual dining.. The waitstaff was responsive and fun. We have to return again before leaving Cabo.

Every night, depending on number of customers, the waiters and MC put on a fun, audience participation show. Basically, the same show each night, but the audience participation makes a big difference in the show. Regardless, it is a fun bar, fun ambiance with the signs on the walls, and fun waiters. We only had drinks and watched the show,... More

Entertainment was interactive and a lot of fun. It was very tourist and at the high end for prices but we enjoyed ourselves and the night life it had to offer.
