Please Do Not Miss Eating Here! OMG!!! The ambiance is deep with an air of exhilaration, the staff is active, present and helpful and the expirence is immersive. They encourage you to interact with the chefs while they prepare your food at the open kitchen and the tables are long and together. No single dining, it's all about a shared expirence, Interestingly enough, it still feels personal. You get your moneys worth! No tiny leaf on a plate and please leave room for dessert! The Creme Brulee was amazing and totally not your ordinary run of the mill. I will be back before my trip is over!

Absolutely fantastic dinner! We lucked out with an earlier sitting which was quiet enough for good conversations and talking with the servers and chefs. We had a wide variety of seafood and veggies (yes mother, we ate a very balanced dinner) and libations enough that I was glad we could walk back to the hotel. Being from landlocked Cowtown we dutifully indulged in shrimp and grouper, All excellent. And the service was incredible, awesome dedication to our enjoying the evening. 11/10.

This gets 5 Stars for a reason. From the food to the service this was a great experience that I highly recommend. The kitchen is open so you can see the wood fired grill and food prep. There are rows of shelves with cut firewood separating the tables, which gives the restaurant a really cool woodsy vibe. The flavors of the food were complex and not just flavored by smoke. We will definitely be back.

This was a great surprise for us. We vacation in the area annually and had driven by this restaurant several times. This year we decided to check it out and it was really special. The dark atmosphere filled with wood is a cool change from the norm. The food is all amazingly prepared with wood and charcoal grills This is THE place for meat lovers and the veggie selections are pretty excellent, too! Definitely adding this to our list of faves.

When traveling to Cabo San Lucas, make a reservation at this local restaurant. It’s unique in style and the food is quite delicious. From the corn to the shrimp to the ribeye, you won’t regret going to Carbon Cabron.

Everything about this restaurant is FABULOUS. The service, the food, the atmosphere. Hands down the best grilled broccoli I’ve ever eaten (and will try to emulate as soon as I get home). Black bean miso on the catch of the day, the aguachile and the sauce on the grilled steak were also to die for...shamelessly dragged my fingers across the plates on multiple occasions.

As nearly everyone has written, the food is spectacular and the restaurant is gorgeous. Beautiful plating, delicious cocktails, friendly service. There was one aspect that our group of six disliked: the communal table seating. We were wedged in the middle of a very long table, and our server decided to review the menu with two groups simultaneously. We had to suffer through the other group's endless questions and comments. Over the next two hours, they became increasingly drunk, loud and rude to the server. Given the $$$$ of the evening, it was a shame. (Note to management: when you have an unruly, disruptive group, offer to relocate those around them to another table. During our evening, there was an entire section that was empty, which we would have happily relocated to in order to have a better time.) Having said that, we will recommend Carbon Cabron to others and are likely to try it again.

We had a great time. The food is all grilled over mesquite. We ordered the grilled tomatos, green beans, corn and asparagus. Each were wonderful and has sauces to complement. The four of us shared a New York strip and the short ribs. And we had meat to take home.
Service was excellent. The ambience is fun. “Rooms” divided by stacks of mesquite. All seating is at long tables,so you need to want to be sociable.
We will definitely return.

We were recommended Carbón Carbón by a fellow guest at our hotel so we though we would give it a try . We walked in and were taken a back at just how amazing and unique the restaurant was . The beautiful smell of Mesquite wood surrounds you as soon as you enter . We were taken to our table which were long tables set up for sharing your dining experience with others . We were introduced to our lovely hostess Olga ... what a delight ! Her knowledge of the menu and her suggestions were sort after being our first time there and her energy and excitement for the restaurant was contagious!! We ordered as per her suggestions and we were not disappointed. The food was absolutely amazing .From the starters of the locally sourced vegetables to the fresh caught local prawns and pork belly, the slow cooked short rib and ending with the amazing trio of desserts we had just been taken on a food journey like no other ! Such an amazing experience we will be back for sure .
