“new Argentinian restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2012

Only open a few months, Chamuyo is a great dining option while in Cabo. Very attentive staff, good wine list and great grilled meats & vegetables. We shared the "mixed grill" - pork spareribs, marinated skirt steak and a homemade sausage... served with grilled red peppers and onions. Delicious. We bought a bottle of a little-known Argentinian wine that was excellent - recommended by our waiter. Fun place, great food that's a nice change from the typical "Mexican" or grilled seafood fare so common in Cabo.

“Excellent food at a great price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2012

Great Asado spread at a nice price. We got the combo for 2. Beef ribs, skirt steak, sausage and a bottle of wine for $50. Cool vibe and awesome aroma from the grill. The owner/chef is super cool and took me into his grill area to show me what's what. Great service and friendly waitstaff!

“Good food, good wine and great company!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

Wife and I just ate there tonight and food was awesome.... To top it off, talk about the wine selection!!! If you like meat (that has been cooked to perfection), whilst sipping on exotic wines and enjoying a relaxed atmosphere then Chamuyo is the place to go. A little hidden gem in Cabo.
Only reason I didn't give an "Excellent" rating is because there is no real menu or wine list with prices. Only specials and a chalk written menu on the walls. Besides that, the food was great.

“For Meat Lovers in Cabo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012

While visiting Cabo for the last 15 years, we have visited the old Brasil's twice - we are not big meat eaters when in Cabo but decided, after walking past this new restaurant in an old location many times during our 3 weeks there, it was time to give it a try. We are so glad we did!
The owners are from Argentina & the word Chamuyo means someone who talks a lot and doesn't say anything. They had a special that included bread with chimichurri, salad, flank steak, beef ribs, skirt steak, Argentinean sausage + a bottle of wine for $54 U.S. What a great deal. As there were 4 of us, we ordered the special for 4, ($98.99) which included everything above + hanger steak. Our waiter, Jose, was warm, very informative, & welcoming + spoke excellent English. When we asked him where he was from, we discovered he was from the same city as where 3 of the 4 of us grew up in Northern California - small world.
As for the bottle of wine, he allowed us to taste the 3 reds that were part of the special - all were great & we decided on the Argentina Malbec - yummy. The salad is generous and the meat all come out on a heated tabletop BBQ - reminds me of the old hibatchi-style cooking. Their chimichurri that went with the bread was out of this world. Wonderful dinner, excellent service, & a nice atmosphere!
