Waited 1 1/2 hours for dinner. Food not hot. Ingredients missing. Our server tried his best but nothing coming out of the kitchen. Loud thumping music distracted from the beautiful peaceful setting.
Very very disappointed. Have had lovely dinners in past years. Will not return for dinner.

If you eat before 7:00pm, the music from the hotel is very loud. The server asked for a cash tip and was pretty persistent. He did provide good service.

Had dinner with hubby and friends for Fathers Day. it was a great evening, the waiters went out of their way to make it nice and even sang a Fathers Day tune! Which I think was definitely made up! Ambience is nice and food was great.

Well I have to say that having dined in close to a dozen places in Cabo the Biblioteca did not disappoint one bit. From the guacamole and chips, great drinks to a wonderful menu. I had the salmon over a fresh corn salsa my wife the shrimp and crab enchiladas. Our friends had the beef brisket enchiladas and the roast pork special all garnished with fresh farm to table ingredients. For dessert we had churros and another round of drinks. Plus we went on Mother’s Day and we’re treated to roses and a 20% discount. Service and ambiance were excellent and the tequila was very good. Can’t wait to return to dine there again. Gracias to the chef and waiters and staff.

This is a great restaurant in a great location. Food and drinks are very reasonably priced especially for the location and quality of this restaurant. I've been here a couple times now and both times it hasn't been busy. I feel it is a gem that people haven't discovered yet. We will be back many times.

Just a really, really nice evening. Our waiter, Oscar, took exceptional care of us, made great recommendations, was very personable and professional.

We tried a Shrimp Machete that was a sort of quesadilla with a terrific corn tortilla with a couple of really good sauces. For entrees, we had Shrimps with Black Mole Sauce and Crab and Shrimp Enchilada. Both were the best Mexican dishes we had ever tasted, nice touches on sauces, degrees to which the shrimp and crab were cooked were just spot on. After dinner, we asked Oscar for a tequila recommendation — his choice was a Riserva de la Familia by Jose Cuervo that turned out to be very subtle, lots of great notes that, as a Scotch drinker, I couldn’t identify.

The restaurant had two screens playing old black-and-white Mexican films featuring Pedro Infante, a star of that time. Oscar gave us a little film history as we watched and had our dinners. Another nice touch at a great place.

Go — you won’t be sorry.

Just a really, really nice evening.

Beautiful comfortable outdoor dining partially on Medano Beach and the inlet to the marina. Very nice jazz band performed and a perfect compliment to the dinner. Upscale, modern Mexican and a taco brisket that was fantastic. Excellent tequila selection and a professional waiter. A real find in Cabo, a must restaurant.

Wanted to like it, but can't. The location is right on the beach. Should rate a high mark. Unfortunately, it is at the mouth of the marina and all the party ships going in and out drown you with their music. You also get a lot of smoke from the fires on the beach and the upstairs deck which had a party that evening. The drinks are exceptional...so for that, I would recommend. The food...was lacking. We had the Tortilla soup, shrimp and crab enchiladas and the pork. Nothing redeeming in any. Service was excellent despite the shortfall of the food.

Come for the cocktails...but the food is not something I can recommend.

The space inside and outside are beautiful! It’s a serene environment. The tequila menu is intimidating but filled with a broad and unique selection. All the food was delicious! Highly recommend Crab & Shrimp Enchiladas. The catch of the day tacos and empanadas were flavorful. Great service too! The cocktails were out of this world 🤗 When in Cabo take the time to find this out of the way spot.

The service was extremely slow and a variety of things that were ordered were either forgotten or the wrong plate was delivered. The correct plates that were ordered, took about 30 minutes to get to us and we were the ONLY ones in the restaurant. That being said, the food would probably have been great, but it arrived cold because it took so long. Also, all the food (correct or not) in our party came out at different times and some people didn't even get their food. Wouldn't recommend this to anyone. I'm not sure how long they have been opened. However, maybe things will change once they have worked out the kinks. I was looking forward to this restaurant as part of our vacation and was disappointed at the level of service.

There are so many great restaurants in Cabo, and this one is a great addition to the list. It is relatively new and is at the end of the wharf in Cabo San Lucas. The view is magnificent, the decor is truly a library, and the food is wonderful. It’s a very homey atmosphere and the service is excellent. The prices are quite fair and portions generous. It’s definitely worth a visit!

The setting at the Biblioteca is a nice ocean front overlooking the Arch, to bad you have some local tarp stands right in front ruining the view.

The drinks are ones of the best in the area! and the service is good.

The food is where they lost me, the "aguachile" is a sorry excuse to be pretentious; no substance just 4 shrimps sprinkled with some curly vegetables and a ton of mango chutney, the chef Richard Sandoval should focus on building his dishes with "taste" on his mind not the visual aspect. Plus Very small portions, the "Vuelve a la Vida" was like a cup of coffee and very bland.

Prices would be great if the food was good, but sadly "you get what you pay for" for now.

Let me start off by saying this has been one of the best places I have ever been to. Definitely the best place I've gone to celebrate my birthday! I enjoyed the 5-course meal (which came with a tequila shot along side each course) my dad and my boyfriend got the Machete Steak and they loved it. It was perfect! My sisters had the tortilla soup and it was heaven sent. Don't get me started on dessert... amazing! One of the best food experiences by far. Can't wait to tell family and friends about it. We will definitely be back! Thank you to the wonderful staff that helped us and filled our stomachs!

Disappointed! Great location for people watching but that was the only good thing. Our waiter was friendly and started out attentive but then disappeared. Getting drinks was slow, getting our food took a very long time and one of our party didn't get her food until about 10 min after the rest of us.... and then her fish was way under cooked and they had to start over on her dish. Needless to say by the time her meal came she was over it. We were all very disappointed, maybe they were having a bad night but given how slow the restaurant was they should have nailed it...Not even close !

The atmosphere is wonderful and the service way above average. The food is almost there. I know it is new, so I give them a pass on everything being to be perfect. I wish the food was more flavorful.
The carnitas were the best item on the menu with a spicy sauce on the plate. The tampiquena is a nice piece of steak, but bland.

While the food itself was very good, the poor service really detracted from the overall meal and left us generally unhappy with the overall experience.

Service was generally slow. After initially ordering appetizers, the waiting took a very long time to return asking for the meal order. After ordering the mains, I requested to see the full tequila list. This took again took time to be provided, and more time to make my drink order. After finally making our drink order, the mains arrived, but not the drinks. It was not until we had completely finished the main course that the drinks arrived.

After dinner I asked to see the desert menu. More of the same. I finally said I didn't want desert, but the menu was brought anyhow. We didn't order desert and left the restaurant disappointed with the experience.
