La Dolce *****

Our most favorite Just off the plaza in front of the church. Good pasta and pizzas. Reasonable prices. The people are very nice, too. Phone Number 142-6621 in San Jose. They have 2 locations - other location in Cabo 143-4122. When visiting the San Jose location, you must check out the back open courtyard part of the restaurant, just by walking by & looking at the front section does not give it justice.

(Seafood and pasta, La Paz)

Located in the Hotel Mediterrane just one block from the malecon in central La Paz is a restaurant worth hinting for. The guests in the charming hotel are spoiled by such good food prepared with savory spices and fresh herbs from local farmers. The seafood is caught just off the shore and the pasta is homemade.

Mi Cocina at Casa Natalia

"Can you recommend a sunny and glamorous vacation getaway with great
food?" "Try Casa Natalia," recommends FOOD &.WINE editor Kate Sekules.

If you are reading this article, then you probably have the "sunny"
part taken care of. Now for the "glamorous" part. ..In a lovely renovated courtyard home in San Jose, just off the main downtown park square, Casa Natalia has carved a reputation throughout the world for first class lodging and dining.

MI COCINA (my kitchen) is a delightfully elegant restaurant that is
part this most charming and nicely done small hotel. The 18-suite hotel
was created as aromantic blossoming for then newlyweds Nathalie and Loic Tenoux. Their initial vision to create a first class restaurant in downtown San Jose led them restore and expand an antique residence in the center of town.

When Mi Cocina open in the spring of 1999, a few armchair consultants advised them to wait until fall to open, so they would benefit from the high season's big rush of tourists. However, their combined restaurant
and hospitality experience told them to open and let their staff have the summer slow time to practice and refine the high level of quality and service they had in mind. But not surprisingly, word of mouth spread quickly, and soon there were crowds, of eager diners.

Perhaps that's because Mi Cocina is truly one-of-a-kind for Los
Cabos. The setting is a very pleasant surprise, with a stunning yet intimate interior by renowned architect Luis Barragan - famous for his nouveau-Mexican style. Dramatic torches, lit each day at dusk, match the lush sound of abundant water falling from a fountain. Most of the seating is outdoors, and the high green canopy of towering native palms maintains the feeling of relaxed intimacy. Truly a
lovely place to dine in downtown San Jose.

Now the restaurant has blossomed through a few tourist seasons. The lounge and bar area has been expanded and the bar has an inviting
"lets hang around here" environment. Jazz music nightly heard throughout the bar and outdoor restaurant adds the sophisticated touch of an intimate "find" in the heart of and old Mexican town.

A recent visit for dinner was a sensational experience. The extensive
wine list left no palate wanting. Loic's signature duck appetizer is
truly wonderful. The presentation and attention to delicate details made the entire dinner presentation, just that, something to enjoy like a theatre show. Loic explains the secret of a good restaurant "fresh ingredients...we have a variety of sources for fresh fish, meats, herbs, cheeses, and that's the base". From there it's the talent of the kitchen "performers" to add the right flavors to bring out the character of the food. The menu changes often based on what's fresh that day.

We the lucky public can just wander in and enjoy this culinary
delight, here in this lovely environment with towering palm trees, the
night stars and the background light jazz. What a nice discovery in this quiet little village of San Jose.. - full of great restaurants and clubs to spend quality vacation social time.
However, reservations advised.

(Local country, Santiago)

This restaurant and small inn have been talking care of adventurous travellers for decades. The simple rooms were the only ones to rent for miles before the growth of the Buena Vista beach area. The bar is a "manly" place with animal heads to prove it, and a sports game always on TV. The outdoor patio is a tranquil eating environment under the shade of the large shade trees. Food is fresh salsa and guacamole for starters, fresh soups and salads, and fresh pescado de mojo de ajo ( lots of garlic) along With chicken arid beef dishes will satisfy every appetite. To find something so "civilized" in this dusty little town is a jewel. Visit the zoo when you hunt out this restaurant.
Daily Lunch & Dinner


Italian restaurant in the Banamex Bank plaza. Wonderful hosts. Moderate.

(Cabo San Lucas)

Located in the heart of Cabo San Lucas just behind the world famous Squid Roe one will find Pozzo's Restaurant and a lucky find it is indeed. The food is hearty, flavorful and very well priced. While canvassing ail of the shops and working up an appetite it is a delightful spot far either lunch, dinner or just a snack.

The theme of the restaurant is an updated version of the Day of the Dead with a skeleton motif, more than capable of keeping one's attention while waiting for a pizza hot out of the oven. The menu is large and well balanced, truly something for everyone. Whether your tastes run to fish, pizza,sandwiches, shellfish or salads the choices are large and well varied. The restaurant's theme is decidedly Italian with many Mexican specialties blending in as well.

The appetizer selection offers many choices from crispy light Jalapeno Rellenos (which are quite. mild and not to be overlooked as being too spicy) to a vast arrays of fresh crisp salads and flavorful authentic Mexican soups.

Now for the ultimate decision required, choosing a main course. The selection of "pizzas make it almost impossible not to order one solely for oneself or to be shared amongst the table. Dinner entrees are large and accompanied by a small side order of pasta as well as fresh vegetables evoked to perfection and a bit crisp. My guest had a wonderful Shrimp Coco-Loco with coconut and a refreshing mango sauce.

Pazzo's offers a great value for lunch with 11 daily lunch specials for only $4.95 which also includes a National Drink. The dessert selection is rather small but contains a perfectly rich delicious flan........ Who needs more?


On the malecon, just across from the Crowne Plaza Hotel. Excellent seafood selections.

Zippers Beachfront Restaurant
(San Jose)

Location Km 28.5 on Transpeninsular Hwy., In Playa Costa Azul, just south of San José (624) 172-6162

If a cheeseburger in paradise is your mission, Zipper's is the real deal. Located along the Corridor near San José del Cabo, surfers downing icy Pacíficos and fresh shrimp ceviche merge with fishermen bolting Sauza and fried-fish tacos. However, the not-so-humble cheeseburger is the star of Zipper's gringo-fabulous menu. Service is slow, so pass the time watching pelicans swoop the swells, catching rays in board shorts and bikinis, and blissing out to the Jimmy Buffet-laced Radio Margaritaville, which is Zipper's 24/7 soundtrack. You won't find dance contests and jet-ski vendors here; located beneath a beachfront palapa that faces a surf break of the same name, Zipper's is a stripped-down sensory experience that rivals even the swankiest Los Cabos restaurant -- at a slightly lesser price tag.

Price Range: Burgers and sandwiches $7-$10; main courses $7-$18
Open Hours: Daily 11am-11pm

Hotel next door - - Cabo Surf Hotel is located in one of the top surfing beaches in Los Cabos. Enjoy the long rides, the ideal spot for long boarders. The property is on the tourist corridor highway just 8 minutes from downtown San Jose del Cabo
