Top Ten Restaurants of Los Cabos, 2020.

This is a cultivated list from our many years as patrons and reviewers for our website We encourage everyone to try more than these ten outstanding restaurants. This list offers a variety of styles as well as prices. This is intended to recognize the very finest that Los Cabos has to offer.

Alcaravea Gourmet
This has been voted one of the top Italian Restaurants in Los Cabos. Head chef and owner Enrique Diaz has a devoted passion for his Mediterranean style menu and European style service. He has transformed the modest street-side cafe into an intimate white table cloth gourmet restaurant. His prices are moderate and his quality is divine. The lunch special is one one the best values in Los Cabos. Choose from locally produced farm-fresh vegetables to complement his wide selection of seafood, meats and pastas. They offer a well-stocked bar and a wide range of wines by the glass or bottle service.

Alcaravea, Ignacio Zaragoza s/n, Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur 23470, Mexico
Open: 11:00 am – 11:00 pm MONDAY TO SATURDAY – CLOSED SUNDAYS

El Peregrino
Just up the street from Alcaravea is a locals favorite called El Peregrino. This family-owned restaurant has a bistro meets Cabo vibe. They have mastered their offerings and we typically go there hungry due to their good-sized portions. The Asian Tuna Carpaccio is a must-try starter. I find it hard not to order the 14 hour slow-cooked ribs. Another favorite is the Shrimp Scampi with white wine sauce. They also are well known for the steak menu. The bar is very affordable and they have a modest selection of regional and international wines.

It is a small and busy restaurant that has opened a second location called Kauil. So if you can not get a reservation for El Peregrino be sure to try Kauil.

Address Esq. Zaragoza y 20 de Noviembre, Cabo San Lucas

Nick San Cabo and Palmilla.
Back in 1985, Angel Carbajal met the Japanese restaurateur Masayuki Niikura. Niikura San enjoyed spending his vacation in Los Cabos and was a regular of the restaurant that Chef Angel Carbajal managed. When friends of Niikura showed up at the restaurant, he asked Carbajal, who was the manager, whether he would allow Niikura to step behind the bar and prepare sushi for his friends. Chef Carbajal said yes… and the rest is history. Japanese Chef Masayuki Niikura and Chef Angel Carbajal have been blowing the minds of sushi lovers in Cabo for decades. If you have ever eaten at an authentic high-quality sushi restaurant then you will no doubt love his fresh and creative menu.
 With 75% of his ingredients being imported from Japan, you can’t find better quality Japanese food anywhere in North or South America.
From the delightful lobster roll to everyone’s favorite tune tostada, Nick and Angel’s team love to spoil their patrons with great service that will leave you more than satisfied. Located just off the Marina in the heart of Cabo and now with a second location in San Jose at the Tiendas Palmilla.

Flora’s Farm is a world unto itself.
What started off as a 25-acre organic farm has turned into one of the most sought after experiences in Mexico. Flora’s Field Kitchen is the nucleus of this vision. Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner in the middle of the garden makes the farm to table concept extra fast and fresh.
The day begins very early as the staff begins baking the loaves of bread, harvesting the crops and preparing the menu for the day’s guests, the various private events, and high society weddings that may occur on any given day.
The experience gives you the feeling of wellness and balance that is incorporated into their menu and way of life. It is actually a simple formula, combining hand made food using farm-fresh ingredients.
What they have accomplished on this 25 acres is amazing, every corner has been utilized yet feels open and not cramped.

The Office on the Beach
Before Cabo was the ‘in’ place in Baja, the Office began as an open-aired palapa shaded ultra-small restaurant with great salsas. Today it is the most famous beach restaurant in Los Cabos.
We especially love the breakfast menu and exceptional service. And yes, the various salsas are still authentic and very best in town. Lunch is especially festive and you will find large groups and families spending hours savoring the fresh seafood, buckets of beer, and fresh margaritas. The kids can swim right in front and shopping from the venders. Friday night is popular being Mexican Fiesta night.
THE best breakfast in town!
Insider tip – keep five receipts and get a free t-shirt or hat. I have dozens of each, so I guess I’m a fan. You won’t leave disappointed.

La Revolucion in historic San Jose del Cabo. Led by general manager bruno, executive chef benito molina (of ensenada’s esteemed manzanilla), la revolución is one of the most talked about openings in los cabos…
Located in downtown San Jose del Cabo in the center of the art district, la revolución is a contemporary Mexican restaurant that aims to revolutionize the conventional ways of doing things in a restaurant. Renowned Mexican chef Benito Molina has created an enticing menu inspired by the Baja California peninsula. Their cocktail menu is worth going by itself but be sure to let them guide you with some paired tapas or do the full evening of gastronomy.

The first thing that strikes you is the gorgeous historic building with a gin bar on the roof. They have completely refurbished this into a chic downtown bar and restaurant. The quality of the food speaks for itself. A favorite place on Thursday Art Walks so that night you will need to make a reservation.

Edith’s Restaurant & Bar
Edith’s is a vivid combination of the Cuisine of Baja California with a Guerreran flair, featuring a regional fusion of steaks and seafood with local ingredients.
Offering a privileged view of Medano Beach and the world-famous arch of Cabo San Lucas, candle lights and palapas set the atmosphere for an unforgettable culinary experience.
Prime cuts of utmost quality imported beef and freshly-caught local fish and lobster, along with Fresh salads, chile poblano, and hand-made tortillas are just a few expressions of the culinary celebration of life in the Baja. You choose your fresh cut then enjoy a tableside Cesar Salad performance while waiting for your entree. The desserts are equally wonderful as is the traditional Mexican coffee show.

Now lets shift gears as we upscale to the high-end restaurants. First up is Seared at the One and Only Palmilla Resort. Seared is the latest addition to the culinary skills of chef Jean-Georges. A gourmet Los Cabos Steakhouse where they present the finest possible steaks and freshest seafood along with the most comprehensive list of wines from Mexico.
From grade A5-Wagyu and Kobe beef to succulent steaks and tenderloins, 15 different cuts of meat of the highest quality are prepared according to precise standards, which competes with restaurants of the world’s most recognized grills. The menu also takes full advantage of the sea, with lobsters, delicious seafood, and hamachi sashimi.

Cocina de Autor- More than a restaurant, Cocina de Autor is a Grand Velas concept; a sensorial dining experience of fine gastronomy led by two Michelin Star Head Chef Sidney Schutte of the Netherlands. This is a culinary tour that reflects the culture and life around us.  The lounge area is the perfect place to unwind with a cocktail and begin your culinary odyssey. After your cocktail enjoy a playful 8-10 course tasting menu showcasing the finest fresh produce and local meats and seafood. The dining room is gorgeous and shows the level of attention given to this star of the resort. It is rare for an all-inclusive resort restaurant to reach this level of perfection. This is certainly the exception to that rule.

And finally, we bring you Comal-Voted the top restaurant in Los Cabos.
Comal is a wonderfully inventive restaurant located at Chileno Bay Resort. Here’s where to find Cabo’s most innovative takes on regional flavors and traditions like braised short rib with cacao broth—set against a contemporary indoor-outdoor space spread across three levels, and dramatic Sea of Cortez backdrop…
Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
For the evening come early and enjoy cocktails prepared meticulously by Osvaldo Vazques and his mixologists. Executive Chef Yvan Mucharraz finds joy in guests gathered around his inspired takes using the freshest local catch, from giant totoaba to sea bass, telling their own stories, and creating taste memories that linger long after they’ve left Chileno Bay.
Watch the colors of the sunset over the Sea of Cortez while dining at one of the top restaurants in Mexico. Whether you are celebrating a special occasion or just delighting in another day in paradise Comal will elevate your Cabo experience.

This concludes the 2020 top ten restaurants of Los Cabos.
