I tried different restaurants in San José del Cabo but this one was absolutely the best. Great food, friendly staff, unique recipes, all fresh and I loved every single bite. If you like tuna, try that plate!

First of all, I wanted everything on the menu, but I'm only human. The lamb tacos were incredible, and they came with light but complex and delicious salsa that was a perfect complement to the exquisite lamb. The tuna appetizer was equally spectacular, and it was hard to resist licking the plate when I finished. Another bonus: a very respectable... More

From the ambience to the service to the food, we were very impressed with Lugarena Cocina! Great al fresco dining in a modern and wide open space. This is a tapas bar with very unique menu items. We loved the shrimp and tuna as well as thr mole halibut, and the sweet potato dessert was to die for. Our server... More

The cocktails are amazing and the patio and location make you want to have as your back yard. We LOVE... More

In a gorgeous outdoor setting-very calming & relaxing with a variety of seating options. Excellent cocktails, try the hibiscus mojito & their version on an old-fashion. Personable bartender who will come out & talk with you & serve your drinks! Had dinner, which was so excellent that we went back for breakfast which was just as much worth going for.... More

I have traveled to many places but the drinks, cuisine, and atmosphere at this restaurant are among the best I have ever tasted or experienced. The staff works extremely hard to insure that your experience is flawless and they are successful each time. If you are interested in trying Mezcal they have a great selection. The bar staff is very... More

Found this via reviews and boy, was this place incredible. It's a tiny courtyard (you have to walk down a pretty alley covered in pottery and plants to get there) covered with Christmas lights and umbrellas. I had a bloody mary that was spicy and perfect. The ceviche here was very good, although the portions here are a little small.... More
