The breakfast buffet is fairly local with a few American and other options. There is also a omelet and waffle bar with al a carte options as well. The lunch selections are perfect and very diverse from pizza to sushi with some great platters as well.

Located in the heart of the Playa Grande - it is also a terrific pool restaurant for lunch. They do have different "nights" (as in Grill Night, etc) - where the menu can be limited but... More

The lunch menu is great and prices are quite good for a restaurant. I ordered shrimp fajita and nachos with salsa and hubby ordered cheeseburger and fries. Service was a tad bit slow even though there were not many patrons. Music was played quietly enough that you could talk and hear. The location is outside but part is covered so... More

The food a Calima was okay, but every time we had food on our table flies would come from someplace in large numbers. Very unappetizing.

Expensive and such slow service! There are flies everywhere and they do nothing to try to control it. Unfortunately, it was the only place at the resort available for breakfast where we were there.

My family and I took a trip to Cabos for the first time and we stayed at the Playa Grande Resort and Spa. This restaurant was located inside near the pools and it was a gem! I appreciate all the waiters we've had for breakfast (Ernesto, Arturo, Armando, and Israel) as well as the hostesses Laura and Karina. They never... More

The newly remodeled restaurant is nice. Ernesto is a great manager and makes sure everything is perfect for you and your group. Able to accommodate large parties so you and your friends can all sit together. We had a group over over 20.

Salad bar is varied and fresh, the rest of the food is pretty mediocre, service is erratic and usually slow, servers do not know the menu very well. Expensive for what you get
