As soon as I arrived for my second trip to Cabo I put La Palmita on my list of places to go. We were welcomed with the same genuine gusto as we were last year. The food is outstanding, The drinks are great and reasonably priced. This is not high end dining. You sit in plastic chairs but the food... More

This place was amazing the service, the food and the price, unbelievable. The place is located a block away from the main central of San Lucas los cabos. If you want authentic delicious food this is the place to go to!

Found this restaurant off the beaten path and boy were we surprised. The ceviche and marlin empanadas were awesome. I could not believe the amount of food you get for the inexpensive prices. Friendly staff and laid back vibe. They only take cash so make sure your prepared. A must stop in cabo.

You cannot get better tasting, well prepared seafood for the price anywhere in Cabo! What it lacks in atmosphere (plastic tables & chairs in an open air patio) it more than makes up for in personable staff and service...not to mention the delicious food! A must go-to every time we are in Cabo San Lucas!

We came here two days in a row. We had fried fish and garlic shrimp. The food is perfect, freshly cooked wth lots of flavours. Service is very friendly, Ismael who speaks English pretty well, does a terrific job. The place is owned by the cook. Give this place a chance and you won't regret.

Saw a review from TripAdvisor and thought we would find. We were able to communicate easily what we wanted, fresh fish unbreaded and simply prepared; done. We went early, probably crowded later and it was our last night in Cabo. Satisfied

We went our last night there. Once again when we visit Cabo it's a must dinner night out. The owner cooks like a chef. A Mexican seafood that is incredible and a wait staff that is very attentive. Let the pictures tell the story.

This place was so good, we went twice on our short stay. It's up a couple blocks from the main drag in Cabo on 16 de Septiembre and totally worth the very short walk off the main street. I am a big Mexican style seafood fan but was prego so could not have my favorites, ceviche and aguachile, because neither... More

Marlin's empanadas delightful, ceviche was tasty but the price for 1 tostada was kind of expensive. Be careful with the habanero's sauce

We brought fish to be cooked and it was amazing! I am not a fish eater, but after I sampled, I was 'hooked"!! We also ordered the coconut shrimp which was tasty. Restaurant is clean, but basic. Service was perfect. Super friendly staff. Owner came out to see how we were doing and the treated the table of 8 with... More
