We received a dining coupon to spend at the Casa Dorada for a time share presentation that we attended so we decided to eat at the 12 Tribes. While the view of the ocean is stunning, that's the best thing this restaurant has to offer....More

Food was good and staff was very friendly but a bit slow. Service could have been faster. Drinks were good too.

We do an annual Christmas Day get together with our Cabo friends here. The staff is very attentive and make you feel at home and welcome. Their regular dinners are also very good and I recommend this place as very authentic with excellent food!

The view is nice but there are lots of other nice views in Cabo. The menu is very limited. The pricing is not worth it. Our service was efficient and friendly just average. Food was good not special.

Welcome to 12 TribesCarlos Bonilla Souberbielle, our Executive Chef, would like to welcome you.The creative process applied to our menu will take you through a smorgasbord of flavors, textures and aromas that represent twelve different regions of Mexico; hence, our name. By understanding the local culinary culture of these regions, their ingredients and techniques, our chef creates a different perspective into what we call “Contemporary Mexican Cuisine”. By applying this understanding to his idea of Bohemian Cuisine – an unpretentious composition of different taste profiles – you’ll find a variety of different flavors perfectly balanced in each dish as you move from course to course. Simple appetizers will introduce you to the complexity of our main dishes,where ubiquitous hints of Mexico offer a new perspective on Mexican cooking. Of course, for a perfect ending, our decadent desserts are the perfect way to complement and truly enjoy your 12 Tribes experience.Thank you for joining us on this journey and….Buen provecho!
