We eat here often when in San Jose del Cabo. High quality simple food. Great 2 for one drinks too. If you like fish tacos, nachos and other bacis Mexican lunch fare, you can't beat it. NOT dirt cheap, but not real pricey.

Nothing like an ice cold beer after a long walk! This place was fantastic. Best tuna tartare I have ever had. Beautiful view...just an oasis!

Brought a tuna I caught and they prepared it for us. Very good. Drinks were good and the service was above average.

Mum and I came here for dinner based on a casual recommendation and it was better than expected! The view is amazing, the service excellent and the shrimp ceviche was the best I've had. I had the bacon wrapped shrimp and mum had the fish fillet and both were delicious. We will definitely return before our holiday ends. We even... More

We were staying at the JW Marriott and decided to walk to the marina. Turns out the walk was a bit further and difficult than we had expected, and we needed lunch before heading back. The grilled shrimp tacos were perfect. Simple, good, quality. Drinks were delicious.

Our trips to San Jose del Cabo always seem to include a walk on the beach that leads us past the Dolphin experience in the new marina to this restaurant. An actual container with seating under a palapa where you can enjoy watching the bird life and boats. This time our server was a very sweet girl who really took... More

Went for Happy hour in group of 8. Nice spot close to the water where you can watch the goings on in the marina. Slow service, appetizers average at best. Will not be in a hurry to go back which is disappointing as we had high expectations from friends who enjoyed it 4 months ago.

We ate here while staying at Hotel El Ganzo. The hotel drove us over one evening as it's a bit of a walk around the property to the other side of the marina. NFL games were on the TV, it was quiet though since it was late. My husband and I ordered a big plate of carne asada nachos. It... More

Part of the Hotel El Gonzo, on the harbor in San Jose. Food was excellent as was the service. Had shrimp and red snapper, done to perfection.
