I ate a mid morning snack at this restaurant that I stumbled upon in Cabo today. I sat at an outside table covered with a brightly coloured tablecloth, laid with traditional Mexican crockery. The coffee was great, the cheese and chorizo empanada was served beautifully with refried beans and salsa and was totally delicious.
Inside, the restaurant is cool, airy and tastefully decorated with interesting metal sculptures. It's situated away from the tourist packed marina, but near classy shops selling upmarket Mexican silver, artwork and clothes.
The most attractive feature is the owner, Sara, and her staff who are friendly, relaxed and attentive. English is spoken but you get a free Spanish lesson from waiter Jose, if you're inclined to try to learn a little. The kitchen hatch was open for all to see the clean food preparation areas and the women inside took time to greet their customers despite being busy hand making the tortillas.
I didn't have any today, but Jose told me that their guacamole is made freshly for you at the table to their own recipe and is very popular.
Its not overpriced. Good value for good quality food.

My wife and I went here for the fish tacos. I asked for, "fried" and expected battered. They came out pan seared. The food was, "OK" I won't come back for the food. The waiter was a very nice guy. The Guacamole was very good. A little too spicy and when we asked to switch out they did with no issues. Chips were too crunchy and hard. Like they had been over cooked and were old.

We received a tip from a local that shared the shuttle from the airport on our arrival that this is the best authentic Mexican food in town. Our lunch was incredible - high quality ingredients and flavors only found in traditional cooking. And the proprietors here are very friendly. Visit this new restaurant location before it gets fully discovered and you have to fight for a table!
