We go to San Jose every year. We found out about Guacamaya's about 3 years ago. This place has the best Mexican food! We go there at least 2 times out of the week we go and stay in San Jose. I recommend eating here!

We were looking for a place to eat. There was a food truck right outside with $2 tacos USD... but the menu for Guacamaya's said it was $1... the pastore was on the spit so I had to go in. All our food was wonderful. Must get the fried cheese. Amazing. Really enjoyed the ambiance and food. Staff excellent.

We had dinner here the other night and enjoyed the experience. The night we were there had a singer which was quite decent and added to the experience. As for the food, the Margaritas were good and certainly plentiful. The tacos were ok. Pretty basic fare. The food highlight was the Bowl, which is their signature dish. Service was ok... More

From the moment you approach the restaurant, you'll take in the wonderful aroma of the shawarma meat cooking in the front window (actually there's not a window, the chef is just 'right there' as you walk by). Great margarita's!! Service is prompt and english is spoken so, if you have questions about the menu, you'll get good answers. The stuffed... More

This place is one of my family's favorites, especially when we have family and friends come visit from out of town. We live here, so when someone comes in town, it's always on our MUST DO list. It's a bit off the beaten path and so you would think, us locals, would have it all to ourselves. However, the WORD... More

There was about a 20 minute wait, but it is well worth-it. The place seemed to be filled with many locals and tourists. This place was absolutely delicious!!!!!!!!!! Especially the pork tacos and the fried cheese they had! Yum Yum! Very affordable, very delicious, fun atmosphere. They play live music. The place is really cool, there is no roof to... More

We (4 adults + 2 year old) went here twice. Consistent both times. The service is great, most of the waitstaff speaks pretty good English and the menu is completely translated into English. Although it is meat centric, there are a few vegetarian options, including several veg quesadillas. The margaritas are good, big, and strong. The guac is pretty good,... More

Well if you want true Mexican Cooking that is not Americanized this is the place to go and go early because it is packed with San Jose del Calbo residents.. Look around and see what everyone else is eating and order it. You can not miss out as everything is just delicious. I return to this restaurant on every visit.... More

We were looking for a fun, casual Mexican restaurant in central San Jose del Cabo and lucked out with Guacamaya's. Although very busy, the service was attentive and friendly. Our food came quickly and was very good. Certainly went home full. Live entertainment the night we were there. Our only suggestion would be to have your transportation plan in place... More
