    We enjoyed our time at Tamarindos Centro. The food and service were very good. No language problem at all. My husband’s tuna was a little over cooked from what was requested. We started with fresh(raw)Chocolata clams with ponzu sauce as well as grilled pulpo(octopus) and were really pleased with all. The mezcal shrimp were tasty. Finished with mango pie which was not what we could have imagined. Like a heavy pumpkin pie texture. All in all we enjoyed our evening. Only spoiler was flies that kept pestering us. Staff tried to remedy the problem. Minor detail when you’re eating outside. It was overall a good experience and we will most likely go again. The food is good. Note there was a wonderful singer/musician entertainer that we enjoyed very much. It was a Thursday so would need to ask if it’s all times.

    Es un lugar pequeño al aire libre donde los comensales son en su mayoría extranjeros. El sabor es bueno, sin ser extraordinario. No esperen panes o salsas al inicio como en otros lugares. Cargan un 18% de servicio en la cuenta.

    atmosphere is nice, but food was disappointing. crab cakes were shaped like torpedoes and had no crunch or texture tp the breading. flavor was okay, but didn't seem like a crab "cake". sauce it was served with was congealed on the plate, so not appetizing. Arugula salad with goat cheese was just those 2 things. presentation was non existent. And prices were quite high for the quality and quantity of food we got.

    The ambiance dining outside under the tree was lovely. I ordered a Caesar salad only. I. Ate half of it because half the lettuce was wilted and soft. There was too much dressing as well. My friends each got the combination Mexican plate. They said it was “just ok”. Our drinks were well done. Nice waiter.

    I love this place! I've been going here for 20 years and the food and staff are always wonderful. The meal was very good and the drinks were well thought. I would have liked to have had more vegetarian optins especialy the appetizer menu. The meals were good portions but only one vegetable per plate so a little lacking in color and not much overall flavor. I would work on adding the things that makeit a farm to table place....adding mor herbs and veggies.

    We have been coming here for years. The name has changed, but only because one of the owners left. The other owner continued to provide jobs for the workers on the farm even when the restaurant was closed for Covid. Wonderful place, give it a try.

    An unfriendly greeting as soon as we arrived. We were seated at the worst table in the restaurant. My husband sat and immediately fell off his chair because of the uneven floor and unbalanced chair. They were unsympathetic and not helpful. I went next store to the pharmacy for bandages and assistance. They offered no free drink no apologies. The food was mediocre at best and the service worse. The highlight of the evening was the wonderful entertainer. We had a reservation to bring friends next week which I am immediately canceling.

    We had been there the week before and I would give it 5 stars. The reason for the 1 star is there was no other option to choose. We invited guests and showed up at our reserved time and were told they could not honor our reservation due to being closed for a private party. Busy night in San Jose doesn't make it very easy to get in somewhere else. They really didn't apologize just looked at us like tough luck. If you reserve on open table I would suggest a call directly to confirm.

    We made a reservation at this restaurant and received a confirmation email. We drove from Cabo San Lucas to San Jose Los Cabos only to find that the entire restaurant was booked for a private event. I was very disappointed that we were not contacted prior to our arrival. There was nothing the local person could do for us, and the manager was not there. Unfortunate

    We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and experience at Tamarindos Centro! Our waiter was attentive and helpful. We ordered two of their signature margaritas - passion fruit and cucumber/serrano - both were well made and tasty. We splurged on this meal - by far the nicest place we ate our entire trip - and ordered appetizers through dessert. We have traveled around the Baja several times and we always enjoy the chocolate clams (baked) and the preparation and presentation at Tamarindos was beautiful and delicious. We also enjoyed the charred romaine Caesar salad which was a special and delightful spin on a traditional salad. For dinner we had the catch of the day (snapper) and the Mexican sampler. The fish was cooked perfectly (medium rare) and was very good quality fish. We enjoyed the key lime pie and the flan - truly excellently prepared and presented! The custards in each were perfect. We closed the evening with Negronis from the bar. Overall this was a delicious and memorable evening. The ambiance is calm and secluded - it feels like you are tucked away in a secret garden with a handful of other guests. We hope to visit Los Tamarindos farm the next time we are in San Jose!

    From the outside might think nothing special but appearances can be deceiving. Beautiful outside courtyard with delicious fresh food. Amazing cocktails. We loved the shrimp bomb appetizer. The Caesar salad was grilled and served with peppitas. Tuna appetizer and crab cakes also very very good. We were very pleased and will be back! A true gem. Incredible food quality in a lovely atmosphere.

Service from Francisco was great & the quality of food will surprise you. Cocktails & Wine, to our Appetizer’s of Sushimi & Shrimp Bomb’s. Dinner for our group of great 8 Friends to great Fish, Filet, Lamb Chops…& of course Desert. For those that Love Flan, heavenly:) Reservations highly recommend & go earlier to avoid busyness & special attention to you. Enjoy!

    Terrible expensive experience. They offered water like it was free when we have just got in. When the bill came later it was $20 dollars the bottle of sparkling water. Lol. I felt robbed…. I had dinner with my boyfriend only and it cost US160,00 and for that price everything should be perfect. My chicken was over cooked and dry. They don’t care about nothing at all beside making money out of tourists. Just don’t go. Not worth it.

    Mosquitoes are a problem here, while you dine, they feast. They give you a can of Off for the table and despite it, still got multiple bites. Chicken was rubbery. The grilled tequila shrimp tasted good, but they are grilled with the shell on and was nearly impossible to separate The octopus appetizer was flavorless. For only 3 tables having customers the food took a very long time to prepare. Would not return.

    Looks like not much from the outside (a block from Plaza de San Jose) but it was FABULOUS! Only open one month. The chef and menu is incredible! I had the fresh snapper, and can't remember the last time I had such a delicious piece of fish - cooked perfectly. All of the vegetables are farm to table from their other restaurant. Highly recommended!

    Wonderful. Such a beautiful setting and food that is on par with all the other farm to table restaurants. Unique and delicious. LOVE the cocktails, salsas and mustard that come as accompaniments. Every dish was excellent - we ate family style and could not pick a favorite - all were outstanding. Again, very unique.
