Restaurants in Los Cabos

From taquerias to haute cuisine, there is a dizzying mix of options for restaurants in Los Cabos. There are a fair number of tourist traps, too—a good reason to check with your concierge before you head out.  Here are some of the best Los Cabos restaurants:

Mi Cocina. This chic San Jose del Cabo restaurant—decorated with torches, waterfalls, and palm trees—features Euro-Mexican fusion cuisine. Try the lamb and Oaxacan cheese stuffed poblano chilies.
The Market, in the One & Only Palmilla. This resort restaurant, opened by a three-star Michelin Chef, is one of the best restaurants in Los Cabos. Try the crab-stuffed squash blossoms, or the roast veal chops with chipotle. 
Nick-San-Palmilla. Tucked in the Tiendas de Palmilla shopping mall, this is considered the best sushi in Los Cabos; favorites include the lobster roll and tuna tostadas.
Canto Del Mar. One of the most popular Los Cabos restaurants, this little place in San Jose del Cabo only seats about 20 people, and has a sophisticated, intimate feel.  The menu changes regularly, based on the freshest catches and produce available. 

Famous for its carnitas (slow-roasted pork), this casual, open-air taquería is part of a small national chain established in Michoacán in 1899.

At Nick-San in downtown Cabo, the fusion of Mexican and Japanese cuisine is the result of a partnership between chefs Angel Carbajal and Masayuki Niikura. The open dining room accommodates 130 with both table and sushi-bar seating.
