Loved the outdoor seating in the heart of the central district. Our family of 8 enjoyed the atmosphere and entrees. We were here for dinner and ordered the shrimp civechi appetizer, fish (both blackened and garlic), shrimp kabob, tacos, steak and a blt! They have an extensive menu sure to please all pallets. The price was right and quality was... More

We walked to this place from our condo. Locals recommended it and they were correct. We had several wonderful meals while in Cabo area, but this was our favorite. There were several subtle differences that made this meal special. Portions are large. There were 6 of us an all agreed that their choice was outstanding! We ate inside, patio could... More

Great place on t/he side of the highway. Food was of great quality, price was good. Staff where very attentive and friendly. Only negative was the noise from the street but that is part of the experience. Went there twice and enjoyed it both times.

Like the fact that you're obviously one of those people that make lemonade when handed lemons and attributed the road noise to "part of the experience"! Thanks for posting, so glad you enjoyed the food and service, we strive to please and next time you might want to try an inside table or booth for a quieter meal. Come back... More

Their clam is excellent the best ever I have. The bloody mary is really good too. I had 2! We order Clam, lobster. The lobster is as good as Red Lobster around here. The price is high. I would give them 4.5 stars but beacuse the location is bad, it is close to the highway, very noisy and not very... More

We are very glad you enjoyed your selections. Sorry about the noisy road, unfortunately beyond our control. But I'm extremely dismayed about your not clean comment, could you please elaborate? we try, and I'm pretty confident, that we are spanking clean, we even get regular accolades for our bathroom cleanliness?!

My wife and I went here a few nights ago based on very high Trip Advisor reviews and like most all others we had a fantastic meal, drinks were great, portions are large and price was good, what's not to like we will be going back again.

We stayed at the El Zalate condos right beside Sardina Cantina. We went up for breakfast and it was very good. The staff were very friendly and even gave us a sample free drink. The eggs benedict was very good. Prices were a little high but they have a discount coupon for breakfast. The best deal seems like happy hour... More

So glad you enjoyed your meal and service, thanks for the praise! Our coupons offer breakfast and lunch for two with the first meal at regular price and second meal at half price, so hope that discount addresses your cost concerns. Also, just so you know, our happy hours run from Monday through Friday, from 3 to 5 PM. Come... More

Ventured into this little restaurant near San Jose Del Cabo on the corridor for lunch last November. Another patron suggested we try the shrimp tacos done panko style. Wow, best I've ever had and I have been coming to Cabo since 1991. We were hooked on these so much that we came back for the shrimp taco's two more days!!... More

"Best shrimp tacos," in the land of shrimp tacos, Well, I declare, you make us blush Sir! Muchas gracias from the kitchen and the management! As you so enjoy the Panko shrimp tacos, I might suggest that next visit, take a gander at our Panko fish and chips, a perennial favorite among many of our patrons. More

Having only arrived in San Jose del Cabo yesterday, we asked for a recommendation for dinner. Am I ever glad that we took the suggestion of dining at Sardinia Cantina. The cantina is small but it makes up for it in the delicious food we were served. The fish tacos my husband had were the best he's ever had. Three... More

Thank you for this review, so nice to hear! You might want to let the vegetarians know that our salads and omelettes are very well received from like minded individuals, should returning to dine for breakfast or lunch be an option, not that those items couldn't be served for dinner as well. More

The food was the best. The seared yellow fin was incredible, my Wife had the chicken enchiladas. We swapped in the middle of our dinners and wow, just great food. Two glasses of wine total and two dinners, 56.00 usd. We're going back. There was road noise but the waiter and the food made up for it.
