The Giggling Marlin is located on the main road - Marina Boulevard. Wanting to try somewhere different for breakfast, we thought we would give it a chance. The prices were a little higher (99 peso for breakfast and coffee - $7.06 CAN) but we found this was common for all restaurants close to the Marina. At breakfast time this large... More

We were told you got to go to the Giggling Marlin, expensive, the home made pico was amazing. This is for the spring breakers, or real party people.

We like to start here while in Cabo because of the fun games and interaction of the staff w/ the crowd. Sometimes more of a crowd than others. They play games with people from the crowd that usually involve free shots of something sweet, so even though the drinks aren't cheap, you get a little more than just mixed drinks.... More

We stopped by here late in the afternoon for a drink. The place was nice and clean. The décor was pretty cool and it looked like the place was managed well. I could see how it could get a little lively later in the evening. Drinks were good!

A small group of us stopped for a drink and ended up staying for a few dinks. The bar was busy but not too crowded. The bar staff started some bar games to get everyone talking to one another and having fun.

Stopped by for refreshments and ended up upside down and videoed. Great time, friendly help, well worth the stop. Drinks were all excellent and priced right. Recommended stop, Antonio done an excellent job in waiting on our table!

If you're sober, you'll probably be put off by the incessant crew of employees peddling expensive drinks, guacamole, and shots of tequila. Once they figure out that you're only going to have a beer, they ignore you til you leave.

We visited for my husband's birthday with a large group of 10. Stopped in for drinks before heading out to dinner and they were so entertaining! Someone mentioned it was my hubby's birthday and they had someone on the microphone warning him that he was in for a surprise :) Our waiter, Angel, was awesome! He was showing us tricks... More

As cruise ship travelers, it was fun to get slightly off the waterfront bar/restaurant area and find this restaurant. At lunch time, it was pretty peaceful, which was a plus. The chicken quesadilla and fish tacos were delicious. Portions were huge and the chips and salsa were included. Plenty of cold beer and table tricks by our waiter made for... More

Great service from Christian. We had so much fun plating musical chairs 2 nights ago. Christian was a great server and took great care of us. He even danced a little. Can't say enough about the great service we got from him. We left and we're down the bkock when Gabriel came running after us because my friend left her... More
