Good for Groups, or just couples. This place has been here forever. I always go here as my first meal to get acclimatized to San Jose Del Cabo. Under a HUGE palapa. Parking across the street. All the food is great, but the fish tacos are especially great. The frahitas are not american style, so don't expect sizzling plates coming... More

Went there before the Thursday evening Art Walk. A little out of the way but worth the trip. They are making tortillas as you walking. Had the queso fundido with chorizo and mushrooms and then the meal in the molcajete. Several different meals to try, I had the steak and shrimp and others had steak and chicken. Most shops or...

We very much enjoyed dining in this authentic, family operated restaurant. I had grilled fish with garlic sauce on the side. The sides of rice, shredded cabbage, and broccoli were nothing to rave about, but the bass was terrific. I could have opted for whole red snapper. The other entree was a hot lava dish rancho--steak, chicken, bacon. Excellent. Freshly... More

Had a delicious lunch today! I had the coconut shrimp with mango sauce plus veggies & rice. My husband had the fish hot pot. We'll definitely be going back before our return home.

We had breakfast and dinner at the restaurant. We kept going back because we enjoyed the fiod so much. The Teliqua Cheese appetizer is out of this world. You also need to try the Hot Stone dishes. Staff was attentive and very friendly. We were 6 people and everyone enjoyed everything we had. Highly recommend this restaurant.

If you are looking for a unique experience stop in. We had the chorizo cheese dip and the table side preparations were wonderful. My husband had one of the stone pot meals which he said was great. I had the fish tacos and could not eat a of it. Service was great. Would highly recommend for a mid budget dining... More

Lunch at this restaurant was part of a guided tour (El arco cruise, tequila tasting, lunch) and we really enjoyed it- great drinks, fajitas were really fresh, hand made tortillas, great salsa and guacamole. Although it was very simple, food came really fast and everything was delicious. We had a group of 12 and everyone loved it!

El Herradero was recommended by our resort. The food here was very authentic and good. I recommend trying one of their stone bowl dishes. We went on a Tuesday night and it was not that busy. It's family friendly and has a nice atmosphere. I highly recommend eating here. It's slightly off the beaten path of downtown San Jose but... More
