    Baja Cantina & The Crazy Lobster: cheap eats!

    by hotsauce28 Written Mar 9, 2005

    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..

    Spencers: Great Seafood

    by Sonador3 Written Mar 19, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When I'm staying at Spencers, this is where I'll have breakfast everyday. It's a very friendly, cozy dining room in the Mar de Cortez hotel that makes excellent food -- especially breakfast and grilled fish for dinner.

    The portions are massive, so be ready! (The photo is from an actual meal for one!)

    The great thing about this place is that they will cook for you whatever you catch fishing that day!

    Favorite Dish: Huevos con Chorizo, but it's a little much -- portionwise. Usually I just have the fresh fruit, fresh squeezed juice and coffee!

    Hotel Cabo San Lucas: Cocktails and Sunsets

    by Goner Updated Apr 9, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I'm sorry to say the Hotel Cabo San Lucas have only privately owned villas and is not open to everyone.

    Hotel Cabo San Lucas is THE place to to have a cocktail and watch the sunset. You can sit on one of the many levels of verandas, sip a Pina Colada, listen to the Mariachis serenade and watch waves crashing on the shore below. The views of the Sea of Cortez and Bahia Chileno are magnificent. See travelog.

    This has got to be the most romantic setting in all of Cabo - DON'T MISS IT.

    Favorite Dish: The Pina Coladas were the best I've had in years.

    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.

    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.

    Cafe Santa Fe: More Great Seafood

    by Goner Updated Mar 18, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We were told that Sante Fe, located in Todo Santos, was the best restaurant in the area. It definitely was the best in Todo Santos and very expensive.

    It has a wonderful ambience with outdoor seating under the huge plants and the service was excellent.

    Favorite Dish: the shrimp was devine (and deveined). The salad was crisp and so nice. However, I didn't care for the Margueritas - too sour for me.

    la FRIDA Restaurant: Don't miss the VIEW

    by ViajesdelMundo Written Jul 21, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Gourmet Mexican/Latin American/Seafood fare in an elaborately decorated area with a verandah option, whch overlooks the Pacific Ocean.

    When we dined, it was FULL MOON night, in late May, and the moon rose right in front of us while we were served.......you don't get much more romantic than this. Also, strolling through is a woman who sings and is dressed as Frida.

    Favorite Dish: We prefer seafood cooked more plainly, which is a problem in a gourmet restaurant, as they want to add so much to it; our fish was good, but I prefer it less dressed up.

    The wine list is extensive, but also too pricey to be enjoyable.

    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).

  • 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. .

    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

    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.

    The Crazy Lobster: Simple and good...

    by Ronald_T Updated Apr 25, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Very fresh seafood can be found here as well as on other places. We choose this place because it was close to the hotel we were starving. The price is average in here, the kitchen as we know from our mom. This is a simple but good restaurant...

    The Shrimp House: Great lobster and shrimps...

    by Ronald_T Updated Apr 26, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place has only a few things on there menu; shrimps, lobster, boiled or not boiled. You can choose between 1/2 kg of lobster, 1/2 kg of shrimps or a mix from 1/4 lobster and 1/4 shrimps. The first drink is included. I have to say that I never eat shrimp and lobster so fine. They were really fresh, something you can't say in every place. Notice already how many people coming to eat here and you will be convinced that this place must be good...

    Casino Real: Stay away here...

    by Ronald_T Updated Apr 25, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I guess they named this restaurant "Casino Real" because you have to be lucky that the food will be good. First the Totopos were flat and the Pico de Gallo had no salt in it, tomato's were unripe. We order 1/2 lobster and Fillet Mignon. I always thought that Fillet Mignon was meat like butter, but this one was not even eatable by a dog. Even the lobster wasn't fresh. Ok, one star for this restaurant because the beer was cold...
