Had a great meal here but what stands out in my mind was the humongous bowl of guacamole, it had cucumber in it and tasted awesome!

Went there with family. Restaurant is located of the Malecon and is quiet. A bit more upscale for the area. Well worth a visit for a "romantic" dinner. Both good are excellent and staff was great. Definitely will go back

During our stay in San Felipe we had occasion to dine at La Vaquita south three times. Each time I tried the three different shrimp entrees. All were delicious! Great service and good wifi too. My favourite place so far!
