  • Theme Night: Villa del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa

    by jasee Updated Aug 27, 2007

    Every night, Villa del Palmar have a special dinner called "Theme Night".....with different types of entertainment and cuisine each night.

    The best one we attended was their "Beach Party" on Wednesday night! It was held right on their own beach and a live band plays right there. It cost around $32.00 per person and the drinks are unlimited....beers, mixed drinks, cola, etc. They have a huge "all you can eat buffet"....from delicious beef barbecue to grilled hamburger, etc. The dessert table is something else.....all assortments of cakes, local types of sweets....just yummy!

    They have all types of entertainment which you can participate at the Beach Party.. like limbo dance contest, beer drinking,etc. The best thing is...people can dance to the music of the band(they play all types of music....mostly modern rock and contemporary).

    I highly recommend their Beach will surely have..!!! =)

    Favorite Dish: Everything! much choices and they are all so.... delicious! =)

    Nick San: Best Sushi Ever...

    by kimberlyfisher1 Updated Jul 19, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    While staying in Cabo for 3 months, I found this little, hole-in-the wall restaurant called NickSan. Pleasantly surprised, it has some of the best sushi I've had ANYWHERE in the world. Tucked away in the popular Marina Plaza in the heart of Cabo San Lucas, Nick San has a unique and varied menu with the freshest fish and seafood around. The modern eatery features a sushi bar and several tables scattered in the open dining area. Service is quick, friendly, and efficient.

    One of the finer restaurants in Cabo, a must-go for anyone that has not, but unless it's an "off" time, reservations are recommended in this popular spot.

    Favorite Dish: ~ sashimi in a crisp, fresh cilantro sauce is a light, tantalizing dish

    ~tuna black and white sashimi (one half seared with olive oil and sesame seeds, the other red onions and ponzu sauce...both decadent!)

    ~spicy tuna cakes melt in your mouth! (spicy tuna atop crispy rice)

    ~many varieties of tempura

    ~choice of many salads

    ~ clear lobster roll was light and refreshing...similar to an Asian springroll

    *most dishes can be done vegetarian

    one of the fabulous dishes @ nick san

  • La Trattoria in Cabo San Lucas: Best Place in Cabo for Italian Food

    by JMC0101 Written Jul 5, 2007

    Excellent location in downtown, next to the Hard Rock Cafe. Great ambience: outside terrace seating or inside. Extensive collection of music dvd. Great way to get the night started or end the night for that matter. I believe the kitchen closes around 12 midnight and 1 AM on weekends. A stone's throw from Squid Roe, Nowhere Bar and the Zoo. They have Absinth which is hard to find anywhere and drink specials. If you bring your laptop they have free wifi hotspot, too.

    Favorite Dish: I love pizza and italian food. This is the best place for it. Tried the wood fired pizza: delicious! Not your regular domino's fare. Large portions like the pasta combo, tasy appetizers: Fried Calamari or Carpacio. Tried the steaks and sea food combo on my last trip. Prices are average, not expensive like some of the tourist traps in Cabo. Great wine selection, too.

  • Mexico Myztic: New Restaurant in Cabo

    by Rosiegirll Written Dec 5, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My husband have been to Cabo about 6 times. Our first night there this time, we met another couple with greetings and they told us they'd just finished eating at a wonderful restaurant called Mexico Myztic.and suggested we try it.
    A few days later we went there and had the most fabulous time. It is a nicely appointed outdoor restaurant with surrounding walls and what appeared to be a new kitchen. I loved the ambience. We were there a week before the high time for the area and the owner didn't even have his credit card processing machine yet it was so new. The food was great and our waiter was so personable. His name is Willie and he worked at one of the other best rated restaurants in the area.
    In the 12 years he'd worked there he was only able to make about $150.00 a week earning commissions. The head cook and owner had worked there and had the same experience. So the owner of Mexico Myztic branched out on his own with a partner and is paying employees a decent wage and will offer his employees a partnership in the second restaurant he opens. Willie told me that one woman cook was taking the bus both ways to work so the owner bought a car for her to use. These people offer a wonderful product and have a social conscience. It was so pleasing to hear of their plans to share their success with their fellow countrymen. A couple of Mariachi bands came by and entertained and they were the best I'd ever heard. If you try this restaurant you will love it...especially if Willie is there. This was the most memorable experience of our week in Cabo.

    Favorite Dish: I had shrimp and lobster and it was deilcious. I don't remember what my husband had but he loved his dinner also. .

    Quetzmal del Poblano: Delicious Authentic Cuisine

    by themayocynic Written Jun 10, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Quetzmal del Poblano (across the street from The Sleepless Lobster, facing The Moon Crab) serves delicious "authentic" cuisine. For instance, their Chiles de Nogado, is a chili rellano stuffed with meat and walnuts, covered with a sweet cream sauce. It was very good. Their Chicken Mole was the best I've ever had.

    The restaurant is clean, air-conditioned and full of locals. We were the only tourists in the place. Good sign for a restaurant. We went back 2 days later and our second experience was better than the first.

    They also offer an extensive "quickie" menu with breakfasts and lunches for only 35-45 pesos ($4-5). My friend said her sopes were very good. The authentic cuisine was in the 100-150 pesos ($10-15) range and VERY worth it.

    Senior Sweets: Great Desserts!!!

    by BobNorris Written Nov 15, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Senior sweets is located outside the mall on the Marina boardwalk. It has the greatest desserts ever. Lots of gelato, cakes, and pretty much anything you can imagine. Skip dessert at your restaraunt and go enjoy something at Senior sweets. When we were there if you spent over 10$ they gave you a free 7 minute international phone call (no gimmicks), so we would go get dessert and call home to check on our son.

    Hacienda del Cuervo: More authentic than other Cabo restaurants

    by islaazul Updated Sep 19, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The restaurant is located on the patio of an old Hacienda. It is off the main intersection in town, so the location isn't as crowded with tourists.

    Favorite Dish: The mole is really good. Also, for $35 you can get three large lobster tails.

    Las Quesadillasss: Decent lobster tacos

    by islaazul Updated Sep 11, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The restaurant is located at a major intersection in the downtown area--you can't miss it. The staff is well-versed in how to entertain Americans, and you will see them flirting and engaging in arm-wrestling with female patrons.

    Favorite Dish: The lobster tacos are decent, as the lobster tastes fresh. We also had the fish of the day, which was also good.

    Not the most authentic place, but what restaurant is in Cabo? ;)

    The restaurant is not air-conditioned, but it does have a few large fans, so it does its job as a temporary reprieve from the hot sun.

    El Patio: So much delicious food, and so cheap!

    by revrendmaynard Updated Jul 22, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What a great place! Ended up here on accident and what a wonderful find it was. My dinner cost about $9 US, and came with chips and salsa, excellent tortilla soup, the main entree, plus chocolate cake to top it all off! An excellent value if you ask me. I ate waaaay too much food here.

    Here is the text from a flier I got at the restaurant:

    In the heart of Cabo San Lucas in a mexican atmosphere, we serve the freshest seafood, lobster, jumbo shimps, fish fillet, New York steak and the best mexican food.

    You hook it, we cook it. Your fish only $6.00 US per person. Included: Tortilla Soup or mix green salad and chocolate cake.

    Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
    Open Monday to Saturday, 7:00am to 10:00pm.
    "Sunday we go fishing"
    Accept Visa and MasterCard

    Favorite Dish: I really wish I could remember the name of the dish I tried here. It was pronounced something like mocha-heeto (not mojito). It was served in a large stone bowl with strips of steak simmering in sauce, plus a plate of beans, guacamole, vegetables, and tortillas. It was VERY good. Try this place out!

    Sleepless Lobster (aka Crazy Lobster): Friendly service, cheap tequila

    by revrendmaynard Written Jul 22, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The staff here have always been extremely friendly every time I've gone here. The restaraunt is off of the main road in Cabo and I think that helps keep the prices down some. They offer breakfast such as Huevos Rancheros for as low as $1.99. Tequila shots are available for 7 pesos (about $0.50 US at the time of this writing). They also have karaoke and pool tables. Supposedly the lobster they offer is quite good but I have not tried it myself.

    The Corner Cafe & Cantina: Margarita and internet

    by BLewJay Updated Mar 31, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After a few hours on the ATV's, we wanted a nice cool and refreshing drink (along with getting access to the internet). So as we walked along the main street in Cabo San Lucas, we asked one of the locals where the best placed would be to fit our needs. She said that we happened to be in luck because The Corner Cafe & Cantina was nearby.

    We found the location and sat down at one of the terminals to check our e-mail and find out what was happening in the world...oh we of course placed our margarita order with Armando (a wonderful and friendly bartender).

    Favorite Dish: Well we didn't order any food, but from looking at the menu (as well as the plates being served), it's a nice and friendly Mexican restaurant. We did of course order 3 Margarita's on the rocks...OMG, they were very strong and so delicious!!! So it you are looking for a restaurant off the beaten path, then this is the place to go (and of course use the internet which was dirt cheap...I think $3 - $5 USDs for an hour).

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This trip was a real shoestring budget trip for me so it was quite exciting when i found place to eat and drink for under $5.00 a meal!!

    The Baja Cantina (down at the Marina) has yummy appetizers for $2.00 each...I'm not sure how much the beer was (sorry)...they were usually on the house!! (Ladies, you really do get the princess treatment down in Baja!)

    The Crazy Lobster has the best taco's EVER!! From lobster tacos to beef tacos the cost is only $1-$2 each...the fish taco's were my fav...and the best part??? $1.50 coronas!!!! There's a few of these restaurants scattered around Downtown Cabo..

    Amarone Ristorate Italiano: World-Class Dining in the Kick-Back Capitol

    by carl Written Dec 19, 2004

    Imbibing adults have more than their fair share of watering holes, party spots and assorted nightlife in Cabo San Lucas. For the moderate, less-inebriated travelers in Cabo, a finer establishment cannot be found than Amarone Ristorante Italiano.

    Amarone, located at the corner of the Marina closest to Plaza Puerto Paraiso, offers a delectable selection of both authentic and contemporary Italian entrees and desserts for even the most discerning palate. Open for lunch and dinner--or just coffee if you choose--Amarone's menu appears to run a little on the pricy side until you take that first bite--then it's downright a bargain.

    For about $120, two people can enjoy a very complete meal, from two appetizers, lobster and another entrée, unbelievable tiramisu in a hand-made chocolate bowl and two lattes crafted from a vintage 1963 La Mazorcco espresso machine.

    Amarone makes sure you're well-served. We received no fewer than five stewards and waiters, each attending to every possible concern before, during and after each course of our scrumptious meal. The atmosphere is second to none, with a choice of two floors of indoor contemporary dining or an outdoor dining experience among trees, flowers and a small (manmade) creek, but it's the food, service and value that will have you talking about Amarone to all corners of the globe.

    The upscale environment is, unfortunately, framed and contrasted by the American burger chain next door. Amarone deserves additional business like it deserves proper, free-standing placement as a fine restaurant. It does not deserve to be walked by on the way to something cheaper, more common or less memorable.

    I'm a big guy, I eat out everywhere I go. If you think like me, that Buca Di Beppo is more baloney than Balogna, then you will certainly appreciate the finer quality of Amarone. By the way, there's no dress code: I wore walking shorts and flip-flops and was treated like I wore a tuxedo.

    Favorite Dish: Their signature lobster dish, a monster crustacean larger than most appetites, requires 36 minutes to prepare and as many dollars to purchase. Heaven in every bite, it commands respect for the meticulous half-hour of dedication making sure it satisfies both connoisseur and casual eaters.

    This lobster is first boiled for 9 minutes, then broiled for 9 more, then baked for an additional 9, spending yet another 9 on the grille, each step receiving special preparation and care usually reserved for royalty.
