On a girls trip and this was the best Mexican food we had! The molcajete was ordered by everyone at the table and we were more than pleased. Portions were big, service was fast, tortillas are handmade to order by a woman sitting on the porch, phenomenal!! Polo the manager, very accommodating and friendly. Would definitely return.

Great food. Man comes around each table and plays his guitar. Open air dining felt good. Next time i will split with by wife's dinner since it was so much food. Very reasonable as well.

This was a tremendous eating and entertainment experience for our group of 6! Starting with the salsa and chips to the the flaming "Mexican Coffee" and the mouth watering flan...couldn't ask for a more delicious and fun evening. We had a a private room to ourselves and the owner personally took care of us. We had an assortment of dishes....hot... More

We brought 30 of our friends and family here for a rehearsal dinner prior to our wedding. They went above and beyond! Not only was the food great but they entertained us all night. They were great with my kids who were a little bored being around that many adults. Music and great drinks all night. Highly recommend. Their staff... More

Great atmosphere and extremely attentive service from the staff, something I have come to appreciate every time I go to restaurants in Mexico. But the best is the food served here. Our party of 6 included 4 older adults and one twenty something and a teenager just graduated from high school. We were all in awed of the specialty of... More

We have eaten here three times. The first time was fabulous for lunch. We enjoyed every dish we tried and the service was top notch. So two weeks later we tried it again for dinner. They were slammed. The service was not stellar and the food was just o.k. They were out of some item. We decided to try other... More

We ate here a few weeks (May 3rd) and was pleasantly surprised...the food, drinks and service was on point. My husband and I shared a large margarita (enough for two) and it was made to perfection. Our meals were delicious. I had the Don Jose's Hot Stone dish (flank steak & shrimp). I've had many hot stone dishes over the... More

We have been to the restaurant several times now, during many different trips to the Baja. The food is so amazing, but I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND the lava bowls... sizzling hot food in stone bowls with hand made tortillas! My mouth is watering just thinking about them!! Great atmosphere and has always been busy when we have gone! Staff if... More

The food is excellent Mexican food. Traditional tortillas made on site. The only thing offputting is the staff follow you into the bathroom and ask if everything is OK.

I cannot imagine why there are poor reviews of this restaurant. My wife and I had dinner there while staying at the JW Marriott in Los Cabos (just a quick ten minute ride from San Jose) and we loved it. We talked with locals who go there regularly and they didn't steer us wrong. The staff was very very nice.... More
