We loved finding this cute restaurant in Cabo San Lucas. What a treat! The place is a little hole in the wall with Beatles memorabilia on the walls. Gordo takes your order cooks for you then sings Beatles music. The whole experience is amazing. We...More

It's at its best if Javier is in the mood to sing that day. Torta especial is my favorite. They don't have a license you have to ask for a beer and they will serve in a cup.

We were bummed to find out that Javier is in Mexico city for a heart surgery. Locals told us he has been gone for two months and not sure of his health status. Praying for a speedy recovery Javier!!!

This was our 3rd visit to Gordo's place. The food has remained excellent, especially his shrimp tacos. Excellent, off-beaten track eatery, simple, rustic, and fun. May hold up to a baker's dozen patrons confortably, but if you have to wait, it is worth it. Two...More

We have been visiting Gordo Lele since coming to Cabo in 1997. It is always a great experience to eat tacos and hear Gordo Lele's rendition of his favorite Beatles song. This trip to our surprise the restaurant was empty (that never happens!), had some...More

It really depends on what part of the Marina. But if you’re at the boat ramp, it’s a 10-15 min walk depending on your pace.
