The lava bowls called mojaletas (not exactly the correct spelling) are featured there. Portions are large, so I recommend sharing one. After dinner, order the Mexican coffee, which is flamed using tequila and Kahlua. Service is outstanding.

I wouldn't waste your time....plenty of other great places to eat. Food didn't have much flavor and I've had better margaritas.

A favorite for us in San Jose Del Cabo. Just on the edge of downtown 1/2 block off the main street into the square. Great menu, huge portions and very reasonable prices. We highly recommend it.

Seriously, best mojeacalentes (my spelling is terrible) stone bowls in SJ. These are amazing and such a great treat when in Mexico. Herraderos offers such a great atmosphere and pleasant dining experience every time.

Had lunch with friends. This place is not on the main drag but is worth the effort. The food was very good as was the service. Good soups and seafood. You cant go wrong with just about anything on the menu.

Owners were very nice and accommodated a large group that was craving lobster. Excellent pricing and there is a variety of food for everyone.
