Whenever I'm in Los Cabos, I always eat several times at Sardina Cantina. The food is wonderfully prepared and the service is great. It doesn't hurt that the menu selections are very reasonably priced. Sardina Cantina is one of those small hole-in-the-wall restaurants that exceeds...More

We always dine at least 3 or 4 times at Sardina Cantina when we vacation in los Cabos. The food is excellent. I’d give it 5 stars for sure. The best clam chowder I’ve ever had. Wonderful taste and piping hot. Great for breakfast too....More

Wish we had discovered this place sooner. Excellent drinks and dinner. The Clam Chowder was the best I've ever had (and I have had a lot of various clam chowders). Go. Enjoy.

We have been going to this restaurant every winter for the past 8 years. Service and food are always excellent. We usually eat inside as the seating outside is noisy due to the busy road.

Loved this place. The food was delicious and the service was top notch. Great drinks too. The atmosphere is nice, but the place is not very big.

After seeing how close this restaurant was and reading the glowing reviews we decided to walk there for lunch from the Krystal Grand Resort. I wasn't sure what to expect as this place didn't look like much, and it's just off a busy highway. Figured...More

Yes we do! Our website has all our menus. Trip advisor won't let me post the actual site. But it's what you would think it would be, the whole name of the restaurant. We look forward to seeing and serving you in August!
