bajabob4Baja Bob’s Best Restaurants of Cabo

There are many great restaurants in the Cabo area. This is not intended to suggest there are not many great alternatives. There are. Bob’s short list of where to eat in Cabo:  

 

Solomon’s Landing Located on the Marina, with a pleasant setting under a thatched roof.  The restaurant is built around the Bar.  All of the seating offers a Marina view.  Service is excellent.  Food is excellent.  Ask about their visit by Diners, Drive-ins and Dives and they will be happy to tell you. 

 

 

For family style Pizza, try Romeo & Julieta on Camino al Pedregal. Turn left when you come out of the entrance of the Pedregal, and it is at the first corner just to the left.

For all the bells and whistles of a high end restaurant, try Edith’s. Not inexpensive, but always good. This is the #1 movie star hangout in Cabo. Reservations required (can be booked out well in advance). Valet parking.

For a setting not to be forgotten, there is Farallon located in the Resort at Pedregal. Cut out of a Cliff over breaking waves, all of which is lit up at night. A setting that must be seen and cannot be explained. As good as life gets when the weather is nice. Not so much when the wind is up. The best fish in Cabo. No menu, you pick your fish from the ice. Not inexpensive. Through the large gates at the Pedregal entrance. Reservations required. Valet parking.

For traditional Mexican, local favorites include Mi Casa on Cabo San Lucas Ave, Los Deseos on the Marina, or Panchos on Hidalgo Street.  On the Marina, La Casa Country makes salsa and guacamole at your table, and Los Deseos makes a traditional cheese appetizer at the table.

Or for tacos, there is Taco Loco located at Plaza Maracas, on Blvd. Marina Cabo San Lucas, on the backside of Cabo Wabo (4 Tacos and a beer for about 7-8 dollars (depending on the exchange rate). Or, Gardenias on Camino al Hacienda and Niños Heroes, 1 ½ blocks behind McDonalds, reputed to have the best fish tacos in town. Or, Asi y Asado on the Corridor parallel road, across from Costco next to Anchor Storage, also reputed to have among the best tacos in town. Or Gordo Lele’s mentioned below. There are many good dollar taco places in town. Walmart has good tamales.

For sushi, no one beats Nik-San. The tuna will have been caught that day. The sauces on the rolls are great. When it is hot, Nik-San will have the air-conditioner on high. We have lived in San Francisco, and the Sushi is better at Nik-San than any place we have been in San Francisco. Validated parking in the Wyndham Hotel parking lot.

For, micro beer lovers, there is Ramuri restaurant on Lazaro Cardenas Blvd. Live music upstairs on Thursday, Friday, Saturday nights. Valet parking.

For the somewhat kooky, there is the Latitude 22 Roadhouse behind the power station near Costco. Food is only OK, but lots of character. Remember to get their famous “No Bad Days” car sticker.

Also for the very kooky and also inexpensive, small, and a unique Cabo experience, there is Gordo Lele’s on Matamoros in downtown. Tacos, plastic chairs, and a cook that likes to sing Beatle songs. The Tacos at Gordo Lele’s are not the traditional small Mexican tacos, but instead quite large.

For inexpensive but great lobster or shrimp, there is Maro’s on Hildago Street. Plastic chairs, no view, but a first class meal for about $15.00.

For breakfast,the Office on Medano Beach cannot be beat. Located on Medano Beach, the Office continues to be the best of the best breakfast venues in Cabo San Lucas. As you walk down the beachy hallway to be seated on the beach sand at your table, you know you are in for something special. The view of the ocean and land’ end from under the sea of umbrellas – well it just makes you feel good. Owned by Edith, as in Edith’s Restaurant, the food is always good, and special touches abound. By way of example, the tortillas for your meal are made to order. Service is likewise impeccable. Valet Parking. As with the Office, Solomon’s starts off with location. Solomon’s is located on the Marina under a large thatched palopa. You just feel like you are vacation by being there. Guy Fieri picked Solomon’s Landing as his #1 Cabo breakfast venue in Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, pointing to their stuffed French Toast as his breakfast favorite dish. Large Breakfast menu assures everyone will be happy. Great Service. Parking in the Wyndham Hotel Parking lot is validated. If you are looking for simple but good American breakfast, well priced, then head to Mama’s Royal Café on Calle Miguel Hidalgo Street, next to Paunchos. Nothing fancy, but down home comfortable feel. Service is fast. Food is good. Prices are good. Parking is not so good. If you want to know you are in Mexico, but also know you are going to get a large, clean venue, then try out La Casa de Don Juan. Large, clean, but rustic. Located on the edge of town by Artisanos, near the ramp that leads to Walmart. Breakfast is served until 2:00. The chairs are made from Palate Racks just to add to the charm. No one speaks English, but who cares…just point at the menu. Excellent Mexican breakfast items, but American breakfast items as well. Lots of Parking. John’s Place is Located in downtown on the corner of Boulevard Marina and Vicente Guerrero, across from Wyndham Hotel. A complete offering of American and Mexican Breakfasts at arguably the best prices in Cabo. The Eggs Benedict is to die for.
