Wow, the food was amazing. Quite an authentic experience. The clay pots were delicious! The hosts were so sweet and informative. Not a fancy restaurant, but you get so much more than what a 'fancy restaurant' can offer. You just have to come and see for yourself =)

We searched this restaurant out because of the reviews below and are so pleased that we did. Alberto and Elisabeth are welcoming hosts, so much that you feel that you are entering a family home. He talks you through the menu and then you go for it. The tortilla soup is great as are the casseroles. There were no desserts... More

We tried this place based on many great reviews and we were not dissappointed. Great food and nice portions at what I think is a low price for what you get! Owners are nice people. Do it!

Soooooooo good. Great personable experience! Tried the Envy as tacos and potato. The tortilla soup is a must have. Simple food but perfect flavors. Worth the 10min drive from resort. Great prices. Will go again!

We went here in 2014 when it was less well known, and it hasn't changed, but has jumped up in popularity, deservedly so. The owner spends hours preparing the cazuelas ("clay pots") with the many ingredients, which are eventually cooked over an open flame. For 2 persons, get 1 cazuela; for 6 persons, share 3 pots. Colorful menu names the... More

We had a great meal here, and the owner was so wonderful, explained the menu and the food was so delicious and very inexpensive for what we got. He brought us a choice of lovely natural drinks to start with, explaining that they do not have their liquor license yet, but it is coming soon. That was not an issue... More

A litter off the beaten path and definitely not fine dining (very casual) - but the food was great. The only thing better than the food was the price. The only negative is they don't yet have a liquor license - so no cervesa. The owner said the license is pending.

The menu offers seven combinations (called "the seven deadly sins") which are a combination of meats, chicken, cheese, vegetables and spices. After choosing a combination, you decide how you want it served (in a taco, in a tostada, etc.) The tortilla soup was the best I have ever had! The owner is super attentive and will make menu changes

We found Las Cazuelas del Don on Tripadvisor as the number 1 rated "Cheap Eats" place in San Jose del Cabo, and it did not disappoint! Chef Alberto and his wife were gracious hosts, and were very attentive in walking us through our options. Essentially he makes multiple "Cazuelas" or stews which are all ready to serve, and can be...

Description
The best charcoal grilled american steak cut, fresh local chicken and vegetable dishes, slow cooked in a traditional cazuela (clay pot) for additional, unique flavor... Simply delicious! El Don invites you to kill your capital sins... Bite by bite!! Where about: Coming from Cabo San Lucas to San Jose del Cabo on the Transpeninsular Highway, you pass Walmart (on your right hand side), at 100 meter is a traffic light wait for the left arrow, cross the hiaghway (there is a "Gift Shop" right on the corner), we are on the same block as the Oxxo store but on the other corner.
