Cabo San Lucas – where to go for great local eats

We have been in search of some of the best food (and best priced) in Los Cabos — this list is in no way comprehensive… just a few of our favorites to date as we still have more to try!


Best Taco’s

Taqueria Rossy –  In San Jose, so a must stop on the way back from picking up guests from the airport.  Can’t beat their fish taco at $15 pesos with all the fixings at the salad bar.  Also worth trying:  shrimp cocktail, quesadillas, or the shredded beef tacos.

Gardenias –  Open 8 am – 8 pm – cash only.  Best tacos in Cabo – and great shrimp salad.  Quick place to stop for a light lunch or dinner.

Gordo Leles – worth the stop just to see what all the fuss is about.  Tacos or Tortas that claim to be some of the best in Cabo.  Cash only.

Best Seafood:

Solomon’s Landing:  this place makes the list for several categories and was recently featured on Diners, Drive In, & Dives.  Everything is great – try the stuffed fish and finish with the Mexican Coffee.  Always a favorite for locals and tourists!

7 Seas Seafood Grille:   In the San Jose Corridor at the Cabo Surf Hotel – a nice place to take in the view, catch some waves, and enjoy the eco-friendly menu.  Everything tasted great – including the tacos!

Mis Suenos – the place to go to cook your fresh fish you catch!  Cooked 7 different ways with a beautiful presentation! Fun, fancy drinks and right on the marina. Victor and Poncho will take good care of you!

Mariscos Las Tres Islas: excellent seafood at good prices.  Up 4 blocks from Cardenas. Locals place; closes early.


Other Favortie Places:

Campestre:  A continued family favorite.  We especially like the dinner specials, the taquitos, imperial shrimp, and any of the fish.  Must try the fruit waters and the margaritas.  Especially when it is mango season! Closed on Sundays.

Tiki Bar: 3×2 sushi rolls are the best bet. Also love the fish burger, taco salad, and Guy Ferreris list of favorites.  Tempura fish and chips yummy too! Good prices and right on the marina for the view!

Casacadas Beach Grill – best value for the view and food for beach dining.  Jazz on Tuesday nights!  Fresh fish and lobster.  Call ahead to reserve a table in the sand.

Best Desserts:

Señor Sweets  – casual atmosphere just outside Puerto Paraiso Mall with pizzas, salads, pastas, and of course what they are most known for — over 40 flavors of  Italian gelato. Truly features extraordinary temptations!

Cocina at Hacienda – best churros on the beach!  You can dine in the sand and watch the sun set over the marina. Menu is authentic taste of Mexico, everything tastes great! Nice wine and tequila list as well.

Best Spot for Kids:

Comicx – new restaurant and bar right at Puerto Paraiso Mall.  Casual atmosphere, extensive menu at great prices.  Best wings in Cabo.  Nice salads.  And their starting combo platter is always a hit with the kids.

Other spots to try if you have time:

The Office, Bahia Hotel, Hacienda del Coyote, and of course the visitors favorites Cabo Wabo, Giggling Marlin, and Squid Roe (just so you can say you were there!)
