We decided to make our way through the gate, walls and security around Posada Del Poza and to ElGusto for a late lunch/early dinner. Despite the somewhat fortress feeling, odd hours and no access to the gardens it was worth it. The staff and service were very gracious and friendly. The view from the Whale Deck is fabulous. The small... More

We were lucky enough to enjoy Christmas dinner with Lily and Juerg (sp?) and their cordial staff. We had attempted to go there the previous evening, but were too late (and they don't serve dinner every day, so check ahead). Everything was perfectly cooked, and they were so gracious to accommodate my vegetarian diet on an evening they were offering... More

We are so glad we made reservations (which are now essential) for this out-of-the-way but restaurant and hotel in a spectacular cliff-side setting. Come for the sunset, and stay for the warm, fascinating stories the hosts may offer. Rarely have we been so warmly received from the hosts, and left feeling like we had a unique experience.

I took my wife here for her birthday and had a very special afternoon dining on the upstairs deck overlooking the sea and sweeping views of the lagoon grounds. It was memorable in every way. The food was very fresh and creative. We had a delicious flan desert and sat there for a long time just enjoying the unique atmosphere.... More

I stayed at the hotel Posada La Poza and ate several times at El Gusto. Each morning we had delicious fruit platters with a really good yogurt, and yummy egg dishes. For lunch one day I had a house salad with a type of steak on top that was excellent. The chicken mole I had for dinner was one of... More

The drive up there was rough due to the dirt road and it was a little pricey. The staff was very friendly and the grounds looked very pretty.

First time in Todos Santos, so we were scouting for a place to eat. Followed the signs to a remote location off a long rocky dirt road. It's located in Hotel Posada La Poza (boutique hotel w/8 rooms). The ocean views, rooftop dining, great food and good service made it totally worth it! We were there for an early lunch... More

No trip to Todos Santa (or Cabo San Lucas) is complete without lunch at El Gusto. Located in a small boutique hotel near the ocean in Todos Santos, this gem of a place (slice of heaven, really) offers unpretentious, utterly fresh, beautifully presented dishes. Using the freshest of ingredients, the house salad is a feast for the palate and the... More

This restaurant is located at the Posada La Poza hotel. It is certainly the best food in town. It is small, quiet and with an excellent menu.

Description
Wonderful location on the shore of the Pacific to enjoy your lunch or dinner. Lunch is being served on the terrace overlooking a freshwater lagoon with an active birdlife. Dinner is offered indoors due to the cooler evenings and some upcoming winds. In Summer, we also serve dinner on the terrace. The terrace is called whale deck due to the wonderful view on passing whales in season (Jan - Mar). We serve day-fresh seafood and well cured prime cuts. Organic salads and vegetables from the region are a must. And we also speak Vegaterian and Vegan. Dinner reservation required.
