Food was just okay. We had the shrimp risotto and veggie/sweet potato gnocchi. We are vegetarian and pescetarian, so perhaps this is to be expected. Dessert was good. Drinks were solid. Loved the live music and the service.

A must for anyone visiting San Jose Del Cabo and looking for fine dining…the wife and I have been coming to Don Sanchez for over 15 years, and have never been dissatisfied with anything ordered on the menu.

The cuisine is what I consider Mexican fusion, as it blends the classic Mexican style with a touch of Euro flavor. Everything is presented on the plate with style, panache, and the food is always incredibly well prepared and tasty!

Last night I had a Mediterranean style local catch of the day with quinoa and vegetables, my son a brisket and my wife some type of blackened shrimp, and all were off the hook!

I give Don Sanchez Los Cabos a ‘10’ and my highest recommendation…enjoy!

We ordered the Mango Festival tasting menu and it was amazing. I could have eaten a gallon of the mango gazpacho. The desert, a mango tamales sponge was so creative and delicious. Service was spot on. Best Food of you trip. Highly recommend heading to this restaurant.

Absolutely outstanding food served by an incredibly professional waiter ARTURO, a waiter can make or break a meal, he was exceptional with wonderful recommendations, superb service to go with all, his team were excellent too. Food presentation looked as if it was out of a magazine, made by the owner chef, would highly recommend this restaurant with lovely live music and excellent food.
I live and dine in New York, this restaurant could easily stand strong in New yOrk, my compliments to the chef, can’t wait to return

Food was very good. The chef provided a small appetizer to welcome us. We ordered 2 appetizers a tostada with no meat and rustic tomatoes. Both were very good but order the rustic tomatoes without the seaweed garnish. Entrees were delicious. I ordered the Tikin-Xic fish…it’s cooked in a banana leaf with chile sauce. spanish risotto on the side was great! My wife ordered the sea bass on a bed of toasted quinoa…it was delicious! Surf and turf tacos were very good as well as the roasted chicken dinner our son and daughters ordered. Arturo and the other servers were very attentive and Arturo explained the different entrees on the menu. I recommend this restaurant in San Jose Del Cabo.

Impressive menu and service. A little pricey for the serving sizes and we needed to sit near a fan as the temperature was too warm to be comfortable in an outside and below street level dining area.

El lugar está my bonito muy bien ambientado, pero los precios son excesivos, sobretodo de las bebidas. En cuanto a los platillos muy ricos, pero de nuevo caros para lo recibido y en mi caso particular pedí un platillo de mejillones de los cuales al menos 20% estaban completamente cerrados, imposible abrirlos

Wonderful dining experience! Great food, lovely ambience, great service! I had the Ticken Xic, my wife had brisket - both were delicious and beautiful. Cost for a stunning meal was only $100 usd- easily something that would have been triple the cost in Seattle, or the resort we were staying at.
