Beautiful view overlooking Medano beach and out to Lands End. We had the ahi appetizer that was delishous, tortilla soup (lovely) and ordered shrimp even though it wasn't on the menu (butter/galic and coconut with a lovely mango sauce). The coconut prawns were huge (eight of them!). The margaritas were very good. Lovely guitar music played, not too loud or intrusive, seemed just about right. A nice evening in a beautiful setting.

It was very quiet for a Saturday night. The violin player was amazing! Check your bill, we were over charged in wine but thankfully caught it before our Cc was charged. We went to celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary and included these details in the reservation and mentioned at dinner and no acknowledgement. Blanked tuna was great, the fried Sea Bass that my husband had was okay.

Restaurant View can't get any better. Service started strong, but over the course of a couple of hours was a chore to get desert or check.
Food was respectable, they try to go a little too fancy when they don't have to. I would say 75% of it was very very good.
I suggest the Pre Fixe Menu, very good value for all you get.
Suggest they try not to pretty up the food as much with all the razzle dazzle and let the food speak for itself.

Services and good were very good. Restaurant is beautiful. However, it overlooks the Mango Deck, which is a pretty rowdy place. Still enjoyed our visit.

The view of Lands End is the best. The servers were very peronable and attentive. The live band was never distracting and played nice background music. The food was cooked perfectly and everything was delicious.

I don't like leaving negative reviews but will make an exception here. The location is extraordinary but service was sub standard. Arrived at 7PM and got our drinks at 740pm. Staff was not attentive and would have made a boatload of money on drinks if they would have visited our table. In fairness. The appetizers were outstanding but that was it. We ordered "drunken octopus" but it arrived over cooked and chewy like shoe leather. In full disclosure, I was asked by the mgr how dinner was and I provided an honest opinion as described here. In all honesty I could give a good review

We had a very good experience considering it was a slow evening. The service was great, but a little more expensive than what the food was worth.

We booked through you only to find when we got there that the restaurant was closed!!! Shame on you for allowing a booking that could not happen. We had booked this as our last night in Cabo and had to look elsewhere on a very busy Friday night. Not to mention that thus was a special occasion as well!!!!

12 Tribes is not open. It is represented as being open but it is under renovations. We should have been alerted to that since this was a special occasion. They put us in their diner type restaurant so it lacked ambiance. Yes, we had the 12 Tribes menu but it was a different restaurant and just plain and simple. I feel this was dishonest.

Food was pretty terrible all around- no one enjoyed their meal except for the kiddos (chicken strips). Service was slow- had to ask for menus, then ask for silverware, etc. Other than that- the view is gorgeous. I'd recommend having drinks there- but pass on the food!

The quality and presentation of all entrees were excellent. We ordered a pasta dish, steak dish, fish dish and a of course a Mexican dish and all were delicious. We sat under the palapa and enjoyed the view of lands end with a great meal and a few cocktails.

I selected this restaurant for the fantastic view of Lands End, which was even better than I had hoped. What surprised me was the attentiveness of the wait staff and the quality of the food. This dinner was one of the highlights of our trip.
