I love Mexican food, this place is awesome. The Mexican coffee was the best experience and show. The preparation of the coffee is a show on it’s own. We only ordered one, and 4 people shared.

This is always my first stop in San Jose. Great service and food is amazing. Best salsa in Cabo. Then it’s on to one of the best Mexican meals you will eat in Cabo. Always good and always looked forward to.
