My wife and I had lunch here after walking down the beach from Playa La Cachora. Lunch was served on the rooftop pation which had a great view of the freshwater lagoon at Playa La Poza. There was enough of a breeze that several customers were wrapping themselves in the towels that were provided by the restaurant. We both had... More

Local friends had highly recommend we eat at El Gusto restaurant in the Posada La Poza boutique hotel in Todos Santos, Baja, Mexico. We were surprised at how long the dirt road was, but followed the signs to a truly unique location. The hotel is set within a natural palm tree oasis, on the edge of a lagoon, with a... More

This is a hidden gem heading south from Todos Santos to the lagoon and beach. Just a fantastic secluded spot, a rooftop dining experience overlooking the lagoon. The food was delicious - fresh and local. A magical place - you should go if you are in Todos Santos (or drive up from Cabo - about one hour)

My husband and I happened upon this restaurant while visiting todos santos and we were pleasantly surprised. The food was quite tasty and the ambiance was lovely. We even saw whales spouting from the upstairs terrace. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area!

We chose El Gusto based on wonderful reviews on Trip Advisor and did enjoy a very nice lunch; we would certainly return again on a subsequent visit to the area. However, we really were taken by the property and the setting for both the hotel and the restaurant; it is wonderful and very unique! If you are looking for a... More

We rented a car in Cabo San Lucas and took the hour drive north to Todos Santos ..after walking around the fun Main Street,we decided to find El Gusto. It was well worth the interesting drive back a dirt road towards the sea. From the terrace, we had a relaxing and beautifully prepared lunch, some of the best margaritas we... More

The location of la Posada Poza on the Playa Poza is gorgeous. Aperitif at sunset on the terrace and then dinner in a uniquely styled restaurant. What more could you want. Of corse the menu. The kitchen crew copes with this challenge with flying colors.

ate there for lunch a couple of weeks back - kind of hard to get to, but it's well worth driving on some dirt roads to get there - the upstairs patio overlooked the ocean with whales breaching and spouting, all with delicious fare to boot! I wish I was still there!

This oasis is worth the drive. Yes rough roads, but it gives you a good excuse to wind around some back roads seeing unusual sights. The food was very good but perhaps a little pricey considering it was only lunch. The setting is beautiful and clean. The bathrooms were the nicest I have seen in any restaurant in Mexico. Go...

Description
Wonderful location on the shore of the Pacific to enjoy your lunch or dinner. Lunch is being served on the terrace overlooking a freshwater lagoon with an active birdlife. Dinner is offered indoors due to the cooler evenings and some upcoming winds. In Summer, we also serve dinner on the terrace. The terrace is called whale deck due to the wonderful view on passing whales in season (Jan - Mar). We serve day-fresh seafood and well cured prime cuts. Organic salads and vegetables from the region are a must. And we also speak Vegaterian and Vegan. Dinner reservation required.
