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

    Excellent food & service. The menu is small but very creative. The yellowtail crudo with strawberry & raspberry vinaigrette was unusually tasty & the fish was incredibly fresh as was the pulpo. Poncho, our server, graciously encouraged us to walk to the water to take sunset photos..he was wonderful! With a bottle of cab from Valle de Guadeloupe - it couldn’t have been better!

    We ate dinner for my husband's birthday. The food was truly remarkable. Didn't expect such a fine dining experience but the food was inventive, and well balanced. We loved the charred lettuce salad and the entrees were not disappointing! Would highly recommend this restaurant.

    Exceptional meal! We ate on the patio by the pool where you can hear the waves. We ordered ceviche, watermelon carpaccio, corn ribs, pesca del día en mole, scallop gnocchi, and the churros for dessert. All were very good, the corn ribs and scallop gnocchi were the two standouts however, the corn ribs were really cool and come with great dipping sauces (salsa macha y hojo santo aioli) and the scallop gnocchi was just perfect - the scallops go great with the gnocchi, the sauce is really nice and the local chorizo really adds. Service was great also and they serve complimentary delicious focaccia and amuse bouche.

    We always make sure to have breakfast at Benno at least once during our visits. My son's favorite food out of all the places we go is the french toast at Benno. The atmosphere is lovely, the staff is super attentive, the food well prepared and presented beautifully. What a special treat!

    La mitad de los platos que aparecen aquí en la carta no aparecían en la carta de cena y aquellos que aparecían eran sustancialmente más caros. Solicite ser sentado afuera y, con mesas vacías, me lo denegaron. Potencialmente la peor experiencia culinaria que he tenido en BCS.
