Nancy's is a welcoming, beautiful restaurant. Libby and Christian are warm and talkative, and it feels like family in the best sense of the word. The food is simple and elegant. Of the restaurants in Cabo Pulmo, it's either one of the best or the best.

We stumbled across this place after a long drive up East Cape Road, looking for quick lunch. Met the mother/daughter team who owns Nancy's and found the best shrimp and cheese stuffed poblanos we have ever had. The beer was exceptionally cold, the home-made tortillas outstanding and prices more than reasonable. Loved talking to the mother (Nancy?) about the history... More

We came back a second time to Nancy's to have the amazing shrimp rellenos. Huge, fat and juicy, lots of big shrimp. To top off the meal, the Mexican flan was amazing. Also did a repeat eat the night before we left town. Be sure to visit Nancy's, which is tucked away off the main road in town behind El... More

Nancy's is a lovely restaurant with a small selection of fresh, seasonal food. The atmosphere is really special--a beautiful candlelit garden and palapa area, and warm and attentive service. And Nancy herself will stop by to make sure that you're having a good time. When we were there the fisherman hadn't caught much because of some heavy swells, so fish... More

Spent a very enjoyable evening at Nancy's. Very good food, fresh and tasty and excellent margaritas to quench our thirst. The highlight of the evening tho was the conversation with Nancy, great stories and history of the area from someone who has been there and lived it for many years. Fascinating.

Shrimp in a garlic sauce was a favorite. A special request for buttered pasta was incredible and should be considered an addition / alternative on the menu. The bumpy road there gave on of us a light stomach. Loved the dark atmosphere with the open kitchen and outdoor seating. The best place we found in Cabo Pulmo!

It's a small place with nice service but the price of the food is expensive for what you have. The place is nice and the owners give the service.

the second evening in Cabo Pulmo was my 50th birthday. Where to go? To the best place in town (village). The appetizer was ok (fish cake), we ordered one each (2) and got one. Ok, miscommunication. The main maincourse was fish, the special of the day. My wife took one bit and she did spit it out. The fish was... More

Wonderful food with charming and rustic outdoor seating. Watch your food be prepared in the outdoor kitchen and enjoy the fresh ingredients and changing menu. Make sure to chat with both proprietors, a mother/daughter team that are delightful. They treated us like family, even providing a blanket for our daughter when she got cold in the night air. Make sure... More

We had no idea what to expect as we literally stumbled on to this place. It is very casual and we felt right at home. Both my daughter and I ordered fish and it was super fresh and excellent. The Tamarindo margaritas were also very special. We will definitely return!
