    La comida estuvo excelente pero en general consideramos que el servicio estuvo lento, sabemos que estaban ocupados pero hubo tiempos en los que incluso nuestros vasos y copas estuvieron vacíos, solo tenían una opción de cerveza lo cual fue un poco decepcionante. También sentimos un poco de presión por la venta del Wagyu. El estacionamiento también nos sorprendió un poco. Agradezco a la persona que atendió mi llamada para enviarme la copia de la nota de consumo, muy eficiente. Gracias.

    The food was amazing and perfect service. Food is fast and steak was cooked to perfection. Ahi Tuna was seared just right and wasn’t over cooked. My favorite part is always the corn and broccoli. We also tried the goat cheese -cheese cake and probably one of my favorite because it wasn’t overly sweet. My family will be back.

    Una de las mejores experiencias gastronomicas de los alrededores sin duda, la combinación de lo ahumado junto con las cocciones perfectas en cada uno de los platillos son indescriptibles en la reseña; La margarita carbón le da el toque ideal y conserva la escencia del lugar así como el buen carajillo para digerir los manjares, Todo lo anterior se compagina a la perfección con el servicio, la atención y amabilidad del staff entero, toda una experiencia sin par.

    Eight people - ordered the chef’s menu for the table. Food was great. However cost of bottled water was completely ridiculous - about $40 USD. We just asked for water and each of us had 2-3 half full glasses. That’s the kind of rip off that makes you think twice about going back or recommending the place to others.

    Wow if you don’t have the short rib then you are missing out. The menu will underwhelm you but the cuisine is out of this world. Try the Fungi they will bring out a mushroom that covers your plate. Piggy is tender and delicious and the glaze outstanding. The corn is excellent too but wish it was served a little warmer. This is hands down our favorite place to dine in San José del Cabo. Even the ambience of the restaurante will surprise you. Very unique idea! We will see you again and again and again. Oh and don’t forget to come hungry.

    Menu sencillo, sin mucha variedad. Sin embargo cada platillo contiene un sinnumero de ingredientes que hacen experimentar el gusto de cada comensal. Las cebollas, el betabel, los elotes, los camarones y las carnes son recomendables. Excelente servicio y todo dentro de un local agradable, con baja o mediana iluminacion y eficiente A/C.
