Staff is wonderful. Service is good. The food was fairly tasteless and average. Not up to the standards of the San José del Cabo restaurant community. Dishes were overcooked or unseasoned and there was only one other table of customers in the restaurant.

Great food. Man comes around each table and plays his guitar. Open air dining felt good. Next time i will split with by wife's dinner since it was so much food. Very reasonable as well.
