    RIGO's: Quiet off the Busy Road

    by ViajesdelMundo Updated Sep 13, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    from the road

    We often stop here when we have to go to the airport, even though it is a little south of there, as the food is good, very well-priced, and 2 dining areas to choose from. It is nice and quiet even though it fronts the main road to San Jose'.
    The waitresses are always pleasant and service is quick.

    The area we prefer is a garden setting and they always have good local Mexican music playing.

    Favorite Dish: I particularly like the Chilaquiles con pollo! Only 45 pesos!! the Huevos Rancheros is STILL only 35 Pesos (currently the exchange rate is 13/1US$!) Very tasty, always served with great fresh selection of salsas

    ITALIAN RISTORANTE: Don't Miss the TIRA MISU!

    by ViajesdelMundo Written Jan 2, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are ready to have something other than Mexican food, this restaurant is fairly authentic looking in its front room, as well as having excellent authentic Italian food. There is also an outside eating area in the back.

    Favorite Dish: The seafood linguine was very rich and delicious; and the TIRA MISU was good-sized as well as very light and top rate

    We have been eating here when in town since they opened about 10 years ago. The food has always been consistent, even through their different expansions and changes of decor. It is a very bright, lively, truly Mexican restaurant; Pancho Villa and Revolutionary brown sepia photos set the tone!

    Many traditional dishes, seafood and meats, as well as vegetarian dishes.

    Full Bar, live music some evenings.
    Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner from 8am to 11pm
    Credit Cards Accepted (MC, VISA, AMEX)

    And they now have their own parking lot!

    Favorite Dish: Everything we have ordered here has always been delicious; you can't go wrong, and plates are full, but well-priced. The CHILIS RELLENOS are fabulous!!

  • Tequila Restaurant: fine outdoor dining

    by arasnosliw Written Mar 21, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Enter the romantic patio and smell the fresh fruits and herbs growing in the gardens. On a warm, pleasant evening, Tequila makes the perfect setting to dine and relax. Their menu is classified as contemporary Mediterranean, with Asian and Baja Mexican influences. The restaurant has an extensive wine and tequila menu; pick out your choice in the wine cellar. Or even go puff on a Havana in the cigar room. All their vegetables are even local and organically harvested.

    Favorite Dish: tequila shrimp, seared ahi, margaritas

    Don Emiliano: Mexican high cuisine

    Thuna fish

    If you are interested in testing Mexican high cuisine, this is THE place. There is a lovely internal open-air court full of plants and candles. The service is excellent and the selection of courses amazing. Very intimate for a romantic evening. Very wide wine lists, both Mexican and international

    Cafe Lolita: Outstanding cuisine

    by Agraichen Written Jan 27, 2014

    The food and service are excellent. This is probably the best addition to San Jose del Cabo and the greatest loss to Loreto in the Baja. Paco and Paola have created a wonderful restaurant that serves (IMO) the best breakfast, lunch and light dinner on the peninsula.

    Everything is fresh, delicious and served by some of the friendliest bi-lingual staff you will meet in the Baja. Unless, Paco, the owner serves you and then you get only the best.

    His wife Paola runs the kitchen to perfection. In the years they had a restaurant in Loreto I never had even a less than excellent meal. Now with their new place in San Jose del Cabo (Paco's home town) the same appears to be true.

    Favorite Dish: Anything on the menu. The new restaurant has some new items and I've not been able to sample all, but as I've eaten everything on their old menu and loved it, I'm certain the new items are just as good.

  • Market at One&Only Palmilla, San Jose Del Cabo: Go to Agua but skip the Market...

    by Mireille57 Written Oct 24, 2013

    There is nothing unique about “Market” located in the magnificent resort of One&Only Palmilla, San Jose Del Cabo, Mexico. As a matter of fact, after spending a week of delectation in the spectacular resorts in Cabo, my advice to you potential visitors, is “do not waste your money in this restaurant”. Instead, I recommend without hesitation Don Manuel’s (at Capella Pedregal), Cocina del Mar (at Esperanza), and Agua (at One&Only Palmilla). I guarantee you a memorable dining experience in exquisite ambiance with impeccable service and sublime food!

    You will find no Euro-Asian inspiration, no Mexican spices at “Market”. What Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten offers is pure disappointment. What comes to mind to describe the experience is “fraudulent representation”. Mr. Vongerichten rides on his fame to attract clientele and offers very plain, too salty, border-line inedible dishes from beginning to end for an outrageous price of $400.00 for two excluding wine.

    The mediocre four pieces of fishy Salmon Sashimi and the overly salty Beef Carpaccio were two disgraceful appetizers, followed by two entrees Duck Crusted with Jordan Almonds where my husband found literally sugar cubes? And the Grilled Lamb with Smoked Chili Glaze served on a bed of raw broccolis failed to meet my expectation. I had to stop the server to grate Manchego Cheese on my plate and got a few drops of “smoked Chili Glaze” which I would describe as spicy oil…unnecessary addition to an otherwise savory meat which I could have cooked just as well in my kitchen. The Black Truffle & Fontina Pizza was bitter tasting– the server described it as the Signature dish, how shameful! I draw a blank with my second appetizer…but I do remember the Green Apple sorbet which left a lingering synthetic chemical taste in my mouth after my first and last bite. My husband dessert sampler offered a chocolate fondant and vanilla ice cream lacking originality.

    To conclude on a positive note, the only pleasant surprise my palate experienced that evening was the chilled asparagus soup sampler “compliments of the Chef” offered before this culinary disaster.

    El Herradero: Local

    El Herradero

    Specializing in the local Molcajete which is a stew with meat and onions cooked in a stone vessel. Fantastic and a must try.
