Thirty years ago, most of the restaurants in Cabo San Lucas served local Mexican dishes. Tourism to Cabo San Lucas took off in the ‘90’s, and with it came the development of a new wave of restaurants, spanning all types of cuisine. Now, you can find world-class dining options both right in town near the harbor, and in the Corredor region to the north east.
Right in town, just off the harbor, you'll find a collection of well regarded restaurants including Spencer Moore's Mama's and Felix, Salvatore's Italian Ristorante, the Brazil Steakhouse, Mi Casa, and the newly transplanted Gordo Lele's Tacos.
Heading towards the Medano Beach area and the streets that surround it, you’ll find Gardenia's and La Golondrina, a great spot for seafood, with the best Shrimp Mocajete's in Baja. La Golondrina is an open air restaurant with delightful garden landscapes and trees strewn with lights to brighten up the atmosphere.
Along Medano Beach you'll find more restaurants including the Baja Cantina Beach restaurant (sister to Baja Cantina in the marina), Edith's, The Office and the Tabasco Beach Club, a casual beachfront burger and fries type of place that also serves Mexican fare and seafood.
A quick drive up the coast will bring you to restaurants from the 5-star gourmet French Riviera at Club Ninety Six to El Chilar in San Jose del Cabo. Check with your villa specialist at Wimco Villas before you go to Cabo for some recommendations as there is always restaurant turn over.
What could be better than a table for two that comes with this view? Baja Cantina Beach is the sister to their marina location at Tesoro Hotel. Both are excellent choices with extensive menus.
MAMA'S & FELIX RESTAURANTS
By day, it's Mama's... a great spot for Mexican or American breakfast. At night, it transforms into Felix... Mexican food made with care and love that translates into a meal you'll remember.
CASA MEXICAN RESTAURANT
A good choice for an authentic Mexican lunch or dinner, Mi Casa is not only a restaurant, it's a tour of some of Mexico's great artwork and handicrafts plus performances by local entertainers.
GALEON RISTORANTE ITALIANO
Galeon sits on the edge of the marina just below the Finesterra Hotel in Cabo.
A marina-front location, a Swiss trained Chef/owner and a wide variety of choices on the menu make Alexander a longtime favorite of vacationers. Try the chocolate fondue for dessert!
SAN JAPANESE, CABO
Angel Carbajal's restaurant in Cabo San Lucas still reigns as the best sushi in Los Cabos.
RIVIERA AT CLUB 96
For the ultimate in gourmet French Mediterranean cuisine with a definitive Mexican influence.
LATITUDE 22, THE ROADHOUSE
The Roadhouse is a great place for slow-roasted Prime Rib with an extensive menu featuring BBQ, Seafood, Pasta and plenty of funky atmosphere.
DON EMILIANO RESTAURANT
Executive chef Margarita De Salinas brings "slow-cooking" and Mexican haute-cuisine to this quaint restaurant in historic San Jose del Cabo and it's well worth a visit.
