When we think of a Mexican meal, we think of something simple and quick. In Mexico, people like to live life at a slower pace and enjoy their company, their surroundings and most importantly, their food. While some of the restaurants are more casual, you will experience a true Mexican dining experience at all of them.

El Peregrino

A casual, small restaurant, noted for its attentive service, hearty portions, and reasonable prices. One recent diner summed it up perfectly: ”We wanted something more authentic so we walked a few extra blocks up from the marina to this lovely bistro-like restaurant. We didn't make a reservation but were greeted warmly and sat promptly. The meal was exquisite and the service was delightful. The highlight of the trip!”

Los Tres Gallos

Set in a courtyard filled with tangerines, mango, and other fruit trees, you would be hard pressed to find a more romantic spot. Named for three legendary actors from the golden age of Mexican cinema, Los Tres Gallos features authentic Mexican cuisine and is particularly known for their delicious mole sauce. Generous portions are served by attentive staff and prices are always reasonable.

La Golondrina

Featuring an outdoor garden with magical lights at night, La Golondrina is noted for its fresh seafood, true Mexican cuisine, and wine selection. A recent diner noted, “Great atmosphere sitting outside under the trees. The food is excellent and the service is friendly and top notch.” It doesn’t get better than that!

Mi Casa

Mi Casa cheerfully serves authentic Mexican cuisine and has been a go-to landmark in Cabo San Lucas for more than 20 years. House in a vintage hacienda-style home, Mi Casa celebrates its culture and people with vibrant colors, natural gardens and the cheerful sounds of strolling musicians and local entertainers.

Mama’s Royal Cafe

For 28 years, Mama’s Royal Café has been serving a generous array of breakfast items, from delicious fruits and smoothies to legendary omelets, which can be prepared in 40 different ways. Mama’s Royal Cafe owner has created an exceptional breakfast dining experience featuring a menu packed with Mexican and international flavors.

The Office on the Beach

Ready for an alfresco breakfast, lunch or dinner with the waves so close, you can almost reach out and touch them? If the answer is a resounding yes, head over to The Office on the Beach, a Cabo regular since the 1970s. Here, you’ll find meals prepared with the freshest local ingredients, as well as a great selection of adult beverages.

Pitahayas

With a twist on Mexican cuisine, Pitahayas opened their doors in 1995 with the concept of Mexican-Asian fusion cuisine. It proved so popular that many other chefs have adopted this style of cooking. For the original experience, however, Pitahayas is the only place to go. In addition to a phenomenal meal, the setting overlooking the Sea of Cortez is the stuff of dreams.

La Lupita Taco & Mezcal

A casual, inviting restaurant located in downtown Cabo, La Lupita Taco & Mezcal is the perfect spot to grab an outdoor table, order some of the seriously amazing tacos and sample the distinctly Mexican agave-spirit of Mezcal. Brings your friends!

Comal

The restaurant at the Chileno Bay Resort & Residences is a feast for the eyes, with sophisticated and a stunning location overlooking the Sea of Cortés. Though, as soon as you taste your perfectly crafted meal here, you may just forget all about the scenery. Comal offers a contemporary twist on traditional Mexican cuisines, such as ceviches and chilpachole broth to duck carnitas and chicharrón.

 

Whether you decide on casual or elegant, overlooking a garden or the sea, a romantic dinner for two or a group outing, there’s a perfect choice in Cabo San Lucas for you!
