Mexican
The Hotel San Cristóbal's Restaurant offers a fusion of classic Mexican cuisine with a Mediterranean,
inspired by the diversity and culinary abundance of Baja California. By exploring All Saints and
surrounding communities, you can see fishermen arriving at the beach in their pangas with their daily
fishing, smelling fragrant basil in the night air, and observing whole truckloads of strawberries, herbs, and
green beans from fields not far from the beach . The menu will focus on this incredible local abundance,
variations of traditional Mexican dishes, and other fresh and simply prepared foods.
The wine programme will focus on winemakers who cultivate sustainably, with emphasis on organic and
biodynamic wines. The selection will cover Western Europe and the United States and include some of
Mexico's exceptional wines. The cocktail menu will include artisanal mezcals, tequilas and classic
cocktails from warm climates

Octopus appetizer was amazing... fish was way over cooked and seafood stew was so so.
The setting at sunset was outstanding.

We meant to get a reservation at Benno but they are only open in the morning and evening. The pool bar was wonderful! Great food and service, the pool deck is amazing.

We made reservations for Christmas dinner and upon arrival not only could they not find our reservation but the restaurant wasn't even seating during the times that were listed on Open Table. The final frustration was a surpirise Prix Fixe menu for $150/per person that was not disclosed in advance.

Tanto el hotel como el restaurante son hermosos. Estar hospedado ahí o pasar una tarde viendo el atardecer no se compara con ningún otra cosa.

We decided to check out the hotel and the restaurant the day we arrived, since it has such a great reputation (we were staying at a different hotel). We traveled in May, and we almost had the restaurant to ourselves! The service was wonderful, the view/ambiance was lovely, and the food was even better. We had an amuse bouche (no idea what was in it but it was one of the best things we had) and super fresh focaccia on the house, the seafood sopa and ceviche appetizers, grilled octopus entree, and churros for dessert. Wow, everything was great - the churros were SO fluffy and perfect. And all for $80 USD for 2! Can’t beat that. I would say this experience was up to par with some of the best places we have eaten, both in the states and abroad.

A nice compliment to an outstanding hotel.

We had two delicious breakfasts and dinners at Benno. There was no reason to leave the property. Fantastic menus and staff.

I was expecting better. The backdrop and location of this restaurant is lovely. The food was terrible. I ordered the Garlic marinated Chicken. It was incredibly dry and tasteless. It was hard to swallow it was so dry. Came with mashed potatoes and broccoli. It was served with about 2 tablespoons of mashed potatoes and a sprinkle of broccoli florets. The service however was fabulous. The staff were kind and attentive. The meal was disappointing.

I am from the school of ‘if you do not have something nice to say, do not say it’. I normally adhere to this credo. The Todos Santos/Los Cerritos area has so many fine places to experience for dining, scenery and shopping amongst the friendly local residents and business owners. The Bay where Benno and the Hotel San Cristóbal are located is a spectacular little Baja California Gem amongst Gems.
I will simply say this about the restaurant Benno. My wife and I were not staying at the hotel. Quite frankly we can not afford the nightly rate to stay at the hotel. We arrived for our 6:00 dinner reservation to an empty restaurant. We were not greeted with any warmth whatsoever. While we were dressed appropriately our lack of wealth does show. The restaurant was not well located in this gorgeous Bay in our opinion.
Put it all together, there was no reason to ruin a great day and we moved on to another restaurant for a fine meal with a spectacular view and sunset.

Need to have better lighting at night on outside tables. Can’t see to eat food and don’t know what you are eating. Need to have Chardonnay by the glass.
Food is excellent.
