Unassuming from the outside, this tucked-away little spot in quirky San José is situated in a 150-year-old mansion house and has a wonderful open air courtyard which we recommend you take advantage of. Serving up a delicious menu – the creation of award winning Chef Jacobo Turquie – which uses only the freshest seafood and cuts of meat, La Panga Antigua is a gem in Los Cabos. Enjoy the exquisitely presented dishes with Mediterranean twists on traditional Mexican dishes and a focus on the surf and turf for which Baja is famous.

For a more cost-effective and laid-back traditional Mexican dining experience, check out Salsita’s in San José. With every meal there comes a complimentary margarita and there’s also a daily Happy Hour. Expect brightly colored glassware, vibrant interior decoration, and top quality traditional Mexican food. Think fish tacos (served in a slice of jicama, a root vegetable, instead of a tortilla), chicken enchiladas, and steaming molcajetes of queso fundido (cheese fondue). Salsita’s is a great option for large groups and families.

Popular with both travelers and locals, Habañero’s Gastro Grill is an excellent spot for those looking for traditional Mexican cuisine in a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. Aside from the service, the food is always thoughtfully presented, but doesn’t skimp on portion size and goes very well with the lovely views. We recommend popping down for the outstanding breakfast or brunch, as the eggs in any form are highly recommended, with the eggs Benedict in particular standing out. Equally, check out their wonderfully fresh seafood dinner options and prepare to be impressed.
