This restaurant is a must when in Los Cabos! Outstanding service and by far the best dinner of our trip! Ask for Marta, she has awesome suggestions and makes the best queso dip with chorizo. Make sure to have it with tequila! We loved it!

Staff was good and entertaining. We had ordered quite a bit of seafood. Food was thought to be great until we went to another restaurant in San Lucas on the marina....food was not only cheaper but also better.
