    Food was good but noise level was too loud. Unable to hear other guests at our table. It was like being in a night club. Waiter four got to as half our table if they wanted a drink. He just walked away. Won’t be going back as they would also not honor the Cabo passport (still would have gone if they weren’t listed on passport site). Will not be going back

    What a fun night of great food! We started with some delicious appetizers and cocktails. We highly recommend the pesto ceviche. It was delicious and new was of preparation The entrees choices were both traditional Mexican and non with lots of options. The milk chicken with smashed aioli potatoes was well seasoned and extremely moist! So Good!! The desert menu had a few new choices. We got the flan! It was outstanding!! You must try it!! The ambulance was beautiful with an old black and white movie playing above the bar. My husband and I loved the 90’s music playing in the background. It had us reminiscing college. The restaurant also offers tequila tasting, cooking classes and a night market!! This place is a must on the check list!!

    Amazing food, ambiance and service. This restaurant is among the finest you’ll find anywhere in Mexico. The care and emotion put into every dish is something to truly admire. From the delicate way they prepare fish to the bold yet sophisticated seasoning of the Picana, it’s all so well thought out and executed. Order anything and you’ll enjoy your choice!

    This place was awesome with just a couple of minor hiccups that can easily be resolved. Food: DELISH! The amount of food you get for what you pay was totally worth it. I find these ‘farm to table’ restaurants don’t often serve much quantity, but not this place; you get a whole lot here. Quality and flavor alone deserves a 5/5. Ambiance: Super cute place, good for a date, or a group/family. The décor is really nice, mostly outdoors and spacious. Upon arrival, you may think ‘where the heck am I at’. This place is off the highway and once you turn into the lot, it’s super dark, but as you drive in, you will see lots walking around and other hidden businesses. Drinks: Tasty but can prob use a little more alcohol. Quality craft cocktails for about $10 USD. Service: It appeared as though there was just ONE person working that night. I mean considering it was just him (two were helping him serve, but not take orders), it wasn’t the worst. Hiccup #1: Can use an additional server. Although not the worst, it was slow service. They told me the cornbread I ordered for dinner (under dessert menu) would take some time, but when we inquired 45 min later, they said they were out. Hiccup #2: The waiter said, and I quote him, “The kitchen is backed up, so let me bring you some chips and guoc. We thought well, that was very nice. He even brought us TWO plates which consisted of chips, guoc, cheese & chicarron (see photo). Well, later, it was on our bill. I asked my hubby to kindly remind the waiter that those two items should be removed, and the waiter said there was no mistake. We prob shouldn’t have assumed, but given he apologized for the slow kitchen, and THEN offered us chips and guoc while we wait for our food, we figured it was complimentary. But no, we paid for BOTH plates. Even after mentioning it to him, he just explained and smiled. He did not care to even try to remove the charges. I would still come back though bc the food is really good.

    Metate, unassuming from outside. Do not turn back! Inside are the gardens and patio and outdoor bar and old films and modern music and more. The host greeted us and, after a wonderful dinner, saw us out after. The waiting staff were ultra-attentive. Cocktails, amazing. Food, simply awesome. Mole to die for. Bone marrow, don’t miss it. She had the beef, perfect! He had the fish, OMG no better flavor!! Then for dessert, Ancho Chile Pepper Ice Cream. Who knew such flavors existed? STOP looking, book now.

    El último horario de reservacion es 9:30pm para que llegues y te digan que ya la cocina cierra a las 10 y tienes que pedir todo antes del cierre. Te preparan los alimentos y los sirven sin llevarlos a la mesa, se enfriaron pedimos cortes y los llevaron en forma de medallones, aparte de que ya estaban fríos la presentación hizo que se enfriaran más, no los pudimos comer agusto, las guarniciones son una broma. Están elevado los precios para lo que te sirven. Reserve una experiencia de mezcal y nadie la ofreció o preguntó acerca de

    The food was unappealing, let alone for the price. The pork shank was dry, an indication that it had been precooked and left to dry. Most dishes were too salty, and the bone marrow lacked much actual marrow. It felt like the chef did not put any pride or diligence in preparing the food. Additionally, I told the wait staff upon ordering that I had to leave by a certain time. Throughout the dinner I had to repeatedly remind him to bring the next dish, as I would have been late if they kept up the pace they were on. Would not repeat.
