23400 San del Cabo
Open for dinner from 5:00-10:00 p.m.
Located in the Art District of San Jose del Cabo. We stumbled upon this quaint, open air restaurant after walking all over looking for an Indian restaurant that we discovered was no longer in business. We are not sure if this is normal in Cabo, or a “COVID thing”, but this was not the first time on this trip to discover that the internet isn’t always reliable. Always have a back up restaurant in mind.
We were greeted at the entrance by a cheery woman who instructed us to walk through a disinfectant mat, then took our temperatures, squirted hand sanitizer in our hands, and asked for our contact information. This was all very welcomed.
There was a traditional Mexican band playing when we walked in. Two lovely women with smooth, low voices (one was also playing mariachis and the other tiny drums), two men on tiny electric guitars, and a bass player. They were taking requests at each table. Normally this sort of thing embarasses me, but this time it was lovely.
They provided complementary chips and salsa. The salsas were very unique and ranged from a mild green salsa, one that tasted like a thin mole sauce, and a third that was very spicy. We ordered the guacamole (medium spicy), which was very creamy and fresh, and two appetizers: sopecitos with poblano peppers and vegetarian tlacoyitos. All of the dishes were very tasty and had unique flavors.
THE FLAN! You must order the flan! It was the thickest, creamiest flan I have ever tasted. They topped it with a thin caramel sauce, fresh berries, and a sprig of mint. It was so good, my dessert avoidant husband ate half! We ended up taking about 1/4 of it home to savor for later.
I rarely order dessert at a restaurant, but I am so glad I splurged this time!
Our bill for the entire meal came to about $36 USD.
