If I Could Yelp! from Los Cabos, Mexico

Until Yelp! adds international support beyond the slim reaches it already offers here are my reviews from Los Cabos, Mexico:

La Dolce Ristorante Italiano & Pizzeria
Hidalgo and Zapata, right in the middle of downtown
Cabos San Lucas, Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, Mexico

3 out of 5 Stars

La Dolce has a rather extensive menu of pasta and pizza dishes and my choice was the tomato and mozzarella salad followed by spaghetti carbonara. The salad was great while the carbonara was a bit bland. The real key, however, was sitting outside basically on the street where we were ‘entertained’ by a couple of little girls selling small wooden bobble heads, women trying to sell flowers, men with guitars singing to the tables, and even a person in the street who was dancing with fire. Yes, it is typical Mexico and it can be annoying if you do not want the bother, however, to be in the middle of it was fun and exciting while having an okay meal with a huge frozen margarita.

There is nothing like a location for a restaurant that allows you to be on beach with your toes in the sand while you eat. For the Office the quality of the food actually matches the ambience. For my main course I had a combination of the fresh selection the waiter showed us — some sea bass to be blackened and some shrimp for scampi. While the shrimp were good the sea bass was amazing.

As with all the restaurants in the area you can never seem to really tell what anything is like from the outside. For Mi Casa the experience starts with going through an enormous gift shop (which is actually a collection of rooms large enough to wonder if you are getting lost exploring them all). Then if that was not enough it seemed to be quite a walk to our table through more rooms (some of them open courts) of tables for eating. Bottom line, this place is huge! Maybe it was the huge strawberry margarita (or the more reasonable fact that I did not record the menu while there…) that I do not remember exactly what I had, either way I chose one of the prix fixe menu options and was happy with everything on it.

Pass the bar and go upstairs to find the restaurant. The menu selection is unique enough to find something different to suit probably anyone’s taste. The lobster tacos for lunch were awesome and large to point where I where I wondered if I would be hungry for dinner in the evening.

Margaritavilla Restaurant

No, this is not Jimmy Buffett’s place! For such a huge place we saw the fewest people during our entire stay in the Cabos area — probably a sign of the weaker ones falling faster especially when located on the busy marina itself. I went the traditional route of having cheese enchiladas for dinner with red sauce — not good, not bad, just food.

Good God that chocolate gelato is awesome and 2 scoops for $4 US is a bargain worth fighting any line for!
