This is the first big restaurant as you drive into San Carlos. So it gets your attention. Under a palapa with nice views of the Sea of Cortez. Should you decide to eat here order the whole fried fish. It is the best on their menu. It is always packed and the annoying Mexican bands sing which means paying them... More

This restaurant is promoted by the Totonaka RV Park, they even give you a couple of free margarita vouchers if you buy a meal. We went with a group of 9 people, and I can't say that anyone thought they had a good meal. My husband and I ordered the Fish Rellano which was supposed to be a rolled fillet... More

Arbolitos is typically consistent, with good food quality and preparation. It seems to be sliding in the wrong direction. Our 7-person party visited in late November for dinner in the open-air top floor. We were excited to enjoy a big spread family style, but were left wanting. The whole Red Snapper was fried to a leather-tough jerky. I think the... More

Well worth the dinner experience. The shrimp with garlic was delicious and very reasonably priced. We'll be back our next trip to San Carlos.

Large open palapa, snappy wait staff, very good seafood menu, good ocean view, a bit over priced but the place is always packed.

Had dinner with group of friends on weekend night. Very varied menu with some iterations of dishes that are not commonly on other menus. Food was excellent and fresh. Staff was friendly and responsive.

I had fond memories of Los Arbolitos, sadly as they have gotten larger with franchises the quality of food and the experience has suffered. If you are looking for a mediocre Mexican restaurant in San Carlos and Guaymas you can find it at Los Arbolitos.

We found this place by accident . The fresh fix was grilled and seasoned to perfection. Our son had the fried fish and said he now loves fish! It's a bit hard to find as it is on thr second floor and part of a mini plaza. But worth the hunt. If you dont like fried shrimp with the skin... More

Beautiful location, and fantastic food. The service has been great, every single time. The waiters are attentive but not intrusive. Wonderful view of the water from across the street (2nd floor). We have never been disappointed here!
