If you are looking for great seafood at a very reasonable price this is the place. Great service, cold drinks and shrimp cooked 15 different ways makes this a must when in San Jose del Cabo.

Absolutely wonderful—wonder how we can eat everything on the menu in a week! Oysters delicious, prawns done to perfection and the special prawn stone bowl bubbling hot! Large palapa covered building, lots of tables and noise level low! We will return!

Very popular with the local crowd. Fast service, not a fancy display but great quality and quantity and a real affordable price. We make a point of have dinner here every time we visit San Jose. Every taxi driver knows where this place is located.

It's across the street from and open field. It's also located not too far from the main square. I was able to walk to it after getting off the bus in town. It was a 5-10 minute walk. Sorry not sure of any street names.

As far as I know, El Toro Guero is open 7 days a week. I don't know about Holy Week in April though.
