Maybe the best kept secret in Los Cabos. The restaurant is at the Vidanta Golf Club in San Jose del Cabo. Fresh seafood, Italian, fusion, and wood fired pizza ovens. Food is fantastic and prices are very reasonable. You need a reservation to get in, since it is part of the country club. Service was efficient and friendly. Then even... More

We had the worst meal of our stay in San Jose at this restaurant. Our mixed green salad was limp and soggy. The Cookie Crust Pepperoni Pizza we shared was cold and tasteless. The fact it was 50% off the pizza that Monday night was only a small consolation considering most of the food we left on the table.

Nice looking place but always empty, for a reason. The food was mediocre and the service very slow. Lots of people coming and going but they were going to the gym and not the restaurant. Boring evening.

We have been eating here since the opened, and enjoy the food as well as the service. Monday and Fridays are pizza nights, you can't beat the deal. Try the steak and shrimp, maybe the best I have ever had.

Very pleasant atmosphere and great service. Food was very good and after the Brunch, you can utilize their swimming pool that's right next to the golf course, for free. It was a nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Very reasonably priced Brunch.

Had pizza and a salad for lunch in the bar overlooking the golf course and Sea of Cortez. Very relaxing, casually elegant! Emmanuel , our waiter was very friendly.

A complimentary shuttle over from The Gran Mayan, part of their 9 hole course, & what a pleasant surprise. My wife ordered their steak rare & she about died & went to heaven. The scalloped potatoes where sensations also & the penne pasta was great also.

Went to get some of the thin crust pizza, as i heard that it was good from a few other people. They weren't right or wrong. It was just average pizza that underwhelmed on the extra toppings portion. Also for a pizza it was pretty high priced, forgot that it was associated with the Mayan Palace all the way up... More
