El Coral serves up some great Mexican dishes as well American style breakfast. The food is always good, the service is sometimes good. Last visit was for breakfast with friends. We were one of 4 tables. We ordered bloody marys before our breakfast and didn't receive them until about 10 minutes AFTER we got our food. Food is good -... More

Had the whole Red Snapper and Imperial shrimp. Both were delicious and the staff was attentive. Great guacamole. Beer was $2 per bottle.

Roberto's staff does an excellent job serving your needs. They always have an answer to your question or recommendation request. Great food at a great price. Desserts are quite good, too. When you stop by, be sure to say hello to Lola the parrot.

We went during late afternoon so it was very quiet. Service was quick and accommodating (server even brought me a pair of reading glasses because I forgot mine). Food was good. Restrooms were very clean (don't let the chickens on the roof deter you!). If you go, make sure you say "Hi" to Lola, the parrot.

Well located on the main drag in Cabo San Lucas. The food from 1 to 10 was 8 for me, fajitas looked great, good size dish, I guess i needed more salt which is easy to fix. Price was pretty reasonable. The service was excellent!

A friend recently ate at El Coral and said the margaritas were spectacular. With two of four women slightly temporarily disabled, we decided to have dinner at this location which was convenient for us. Can't say enough nice things about El Coral. The service was attentive without being intrusive. The food was fantastic. One of my favorite dishes is Chiles... More

Service was very slow, waiter was inattentive, Mexican Combo was just average and not all that hot. Ribs were good but they came off the open grill, not the kitchen. Beers were 2 for one, waiter brought out 4 beers and when told we only wanted 2, he said 2x1. Great deal when 4 mexican beers were 160 pesos, or... More
