We drove from Cabo San Lucas for dinner since we heard such great things. We had half-a-dozen oysters, the Mexican combo plate (chile relleno, flank steak, and enchilada), and the Captain John's platter (coconut shrimp, seared tuna, scallops, scalloped potatoes). The food was fresh and...More

The coconut prawns were excellent as were the stuffed mushrooms. Atmosphere was ok at best but food was the best we’ve had in the area so far. I would highly recommend this place

We were staying nearby and the concierge recommended not only the Sardina Cantina, but the Coconut Shrimp entree in particular. It was very tasty, but probably the most expensive meal I had in Cabo.More

Sorry you feel that way, we do serve very generous potions and feel our quality deserves the cost. Most agree and we hope you rethink it and check us out again.
