    Most Wednesday nights, Hotel El Ganzo offers a Flamenco show. It's always great, not to be missed when you are here in town, and the food is absolutely delicious. I took my friends there last night and we had the best fish we've ever eaten, and an incredibly delicious steak. The paella is most often excellent choice too. Oh, did I mention there is no charge to watch the show! Yes, please leave the musicians and dancers a nice tip, it seems to be most greatly appreciated by them.

    Flamenco night on Wednesday! They made seafood paella and had a really great flamenco trio playing guitar, singing and incredible dancing! What a fun night. We also had lobster pasta and the prawns and they were delicious. Get some heirloom tomatoes that really taste like tomatoes! Highly recommend this cool place to stay and the restaurant is fantastic!

    We enjoyed dinner and lunch at El Ganzo Restaurant. Both meals were fresh, beautifully presented and delicious. Authentic Mexican seafood and other proteins. (Vegetarian option, too) On Wednesday nights there is a Flamenco dancer and two classical guitarists. What talented and creative artists! We had an amazing dinner on the patio looking at the harbor and ocean beyond while being entertained. We will always dine there when in San Jose del Cabo. And, if you need a hotel full of art and ambience, El Ganzo is it.

    If you happen to find yourself near San Jose on a Wednesday night I would highly recommend el Restaurante at El Ganzo. The outdoor venue next to the marina is spectacular. Enjoy some delicious paella and prepare to be entertained by Alebrija Flamenco in a very intimate setting. The excellent service provided by Kerin and her team while being mesmerized by Natalia’s dancing and Daniel’s guitar make for one of favorite nights out.
    Restaurante @ El GanzoResponded on February 21, 2024
    Hey There, Absolutely thrilled to hear about your fantastic experience at El Restaurante; we appreciate your glowing recommendation! your description sounds like a magical Wednesday night. Big kudos to Keren and El Ganzo team for delivering excellent service, and we're delighted that Natalia's dancing and Daniel's guitar added to the charm of your evening. Thank you for making us one of your favorite nights out! We look forward to welcoming you back for more wonderful moments at El Ganzo.

    This is my second time visiting El Ganzo on a Wednesday for their Flamenco. I absolutely love the hotel, and the restaurant on the terrace overlooking the marina. Last night however, the service was poor. We were sat early, one of the first tables to arrive. It was very understaffed. We waited a long time to get drinks, to get a heater turned on, to get menus, and then once we ordered, our server didn’t clear plates and cutlery between courses or replenish our empty drinks after we’d eaten. The food was fantastic. The ladies working tried hard, and they did it with a smile, but there simply was not enough staff.
    Restaurante @ El GanzoResponded on January 25, 2024
    Hey Awenz, Thanks a ton for sharing your thoughts and coming back to El Ganzo for our Flamenco night! 🌟 We're stoked to be a part of your second visit, but also bummed to hear about the hiccup in service. Huge apologies for the delay and any inconvenience caused. Your feedback is gold, and we're already working on ensuring our crew has the backup they need. Props to the hard-working ladies who kept the smiles going! Super glad you enjoyed the fantastic food, and we promise to step up our game for an even smoother experience next time. Can't wait to have you back for more good times and Flamenco vibes!

    From the moment we walked in we were completely taken care of, especially by Sammy. They honored our honeymoon and made us feel special. The heirloom tomato salad and shrimp tostadas were delicious. The fish entree we had was good, not awesome.

It was also my birthday and they really made it special for me! All the service staff are caring and genuine and the food is so fresh and and gorgeous! You must try the ceviche or the crudos, the fish is superb!

    We went to the amazing Flamenco show which the El Ganzo has on Wednesday nights. The El Ganzo hotel's restaurant also has this amazing paella which is cooked fresh right by the outdoor tables. The other dishes we had were also delicious. The vegetables and scallops were all so fresh. It is a beautiful setting to be in to watch the wonderful entertainment by these talented musicians and the young lady that beautifully performs the Flamenco dances. I enjoyed this so much last week, that I brought more friends this week. Will definitely return in the near future.

    The food was great and the entertainment was fantastic. Wednesday nights is Flamenco night so we decided to check out the entertainment. Daniel, Natalie and their group performed beautifully. Learning Flamenco guitar playing and dance, takes years and years of practice. The performance was flawless and we will return to the resteraunt to see them again for sure. It’s unfortunate that a table of young partiers behind us made such a ruckus during the performance. Still, the wonderful guitar playing and Natalie dancing were mesmerizing. The food was great but we did not appreciate being charged $12 for a bottle of water.

    The atmosphere is wonderful especially on Friday nights when they have a live band starting at sunset. However, the food is not impressive and overpriced. It doesn’t even have good presentation. Our server wasn’t friendly… When we went to pay we said we live in San Jose because they offered a 20% discount that night to locals. He asked to see our green cards. We only had photos of them but he made us get up to go show his manager who then had us email them to her. The whole experience just made us feel weird. Overall- I would recommend going on a Friday night and sitting by the fire pit on the couches and just having drinks to watch the band. Or they have a taco truck out front on the weekend that looked good.

    We were very disappointed with our experience of lunch at El Ganzo on Sunday. I had picked up a friend from the airport and wanted to treat him to a nice lunch at El Ganzo. I made a reservation and wasn’t aware of their brunch buffet which was at the very end when we arrived. We were still charged $80 for the buffet even though the food was all gone, we didn’t even get served water and had to ask for silverware. There was no acknowledgement from a staff person or management that we arrived at the very end of the buffet when the food was all gone. That would have been nice. I’ve stayed at El Ganzo before as I live in Todos Santos and I expected more from these guys. Unfortunately when places become more about the scene and less about quality of service it changes the entire experience and makes people feel uncomfortable and unwelcome. Not to mention $80 for food that was old and had been sitting out for hours. Not impressed this time.

    The place has so much potential but fails. The setting is good. Fun to be overlooking the marina. We had two appetizers and shared a main course. The tuna sashimi was good but they tried to hard with a peanuts and mango mix-up splattered over the tuna. The Vietnamese roll very uninspired - awful.- lacked flavour and was just stuffed with sprouts. Seafood fettuccini was just plain bad. Luke warm, over cooked , pasty sauce (overly thickened). With not much seafood - a few shrimp (over cooked), 2 mussels and not much else that was identifiable. The service was ok, tried hard to make our evening pleasant. Tried this restaurant last year and was hopping they had improved. Nope. Will not try it again.

    It was an amazing dinner with my new wife. We are on our honeymoon and we found this amazing place! The maitra d was Jesus and he was most attentive. We enjoyed the cauliflower ceviche (sounds crazy but Amazing), the fish special which was the grouper and the Ganzo shrimp. The whole night was magical. Wine was exceptional.
