Their speciality is food served in the stone bowls. I would recommend going with one of those. I tried the coconut shrimp and found them overcooked and tasteless.

We had the seafood Molcajete and it was so good, we came back the next day and had it again. The Molcajete comes sizzling and it has plenty. The shrimp and octopus cocktails were huge and fresh. But the best part was that the staff were very nice and friendly.

The lava bowls called mojaletas (not exactly the correct spelling) are featured there. Portions are large, so I recommend sharing one. After dinner, order the Mexican coffee, which is flamed using tequila and Kahlua. Service is outstanding.

I wouldn't waste your time....plenty of other great places to eat. Food didn't have much flavor and I've had better margaritas.

A favorite for us in San Jose Del Cabo. Just on the edge of downtown 1/2 block off the main street into the square. Great menu, huge portions and very reasonable prices. We highly recommend it.

Seriously, best mojeacalentes (my spelling is terrible) stone bowls in SJ. These are amazing and such a great treat when in Mexico. Herraderos offers such a great atmosphere and pleasant dining experience every time.
