Cabo-licious … food!
This is a continuation of Baja Baby: Beaches!! … some helpful hints to ensure that your palate is as satisfied as your body is sunned, and as satiated as your mind is relaxed, including a list of my FAVORITE CABO RESTAURANTS! Bon vacance, xoxo
Tip #5: In general, make reservations in advance and for additional restaurants, ask the locals. Reservations are good since you don’t want to end your day in the sun and then have to weigh which restaurants are good and why, especially if you’re in a group.
Tip #6: My favorite restaurant of our vacation was La Fonda, which our adorable bartender told us was her favorite for special occasions and the best traditional Mexican cuisine, and our friend who LOVES Russia, who wants to go by “Mexican Jose”, seconded her recommendation. You don’t need a reservation for La Fonda. The menu was extensive, the service attentive, the food perfect, and there was a father-son mariachi band serenading everyone.
Tip #7: Eat at these must-do restaurants as well: 1) Edith’s – my second favorite, my friend Nicole’s favorite. You should get the quesadilla trio as your appetizer to share, it was perfect. 2) The Office – was my husband’s favorite. He had the fried red snapper. 3) Nick San – for sushi. This sushi rivals Nobu, it was honestly my favorite sushi ever and the bar has been forever raised. 4) Mi Casa for Mexican and amazing ambiance, Mexican decor, and shopping.
Tip #8: I’m going by word of mouth here, but I also heard these restaurants were wonderful: 1) Mona Lisa – a friend we made on Pez Gato said she ate here at sunset and it was out of this world, and honestly the most romantic dinner experience of her life. It was gorgeous and the food was perfect. 2) Hacienda – several women at our hotel said they ate here and it was delicious. It’s convenient to all the Medano beach hotels, right near Mango Deck. 3) Los Tres Gallos – recommended by our hotel but we didn’t get there (we chose to return to Nick San ).
It was a great escape from snowy and freezing New York.
