Mariscos El Compa Chava
Looking for the best ceviche in town? It's here. Choose from various options, including octopus, raw shrimp, and fish ceviche. Try the Baja specialty: a ceviche served inside large chocolate clams or a molcajete. As they say: bueno, bonito, and baratao! A classic expression meaning good, pretty, and cheap.
Using only locally sourced ingredients, Jazamango offers the best of the Cabo food scene. Pastas are made fresh, barbacoa is prepared every Sunday, and pop-up menus offer specialty items like Vietnamese tostadas. Its airy indoor-outdoor setup is elegant and perfectly picturesque.
Los Tres Gallos Restaurant
This is the place to go for authentic Mexican cuisine. Unlike many of Los Cabos' restaurants, which are putting out more fusion-style food, Los Tres Gallos focuses on local classics like traditional poole, Caesar salad (invented up north in Tijuana, actually!), mole enchiladas, and stuffed green peppers. The patio is shrouded in greenery, making it a nice spot to enjoy dessert, whether it's flan, churros, or tres leches cake.
When you go to Mexico, you HAVE to eat tacos. Family-run for more than 30 years, Tacos Gardenias serves all the Baja classics, like fish tacos, shrimp cocktails, ceviche, and seafood soup, while also offering tacos stuffed with cochinita pibil (juicy marinated pork) and fried shrimp.
Manta's stunning views and sleek decor perfectly match its menu. Its world-renowned chef, Enrique Olvera, draws inspiration from various flavours to produce innovative dishes that retain distinctly Mexican characteristics.
