Lumbre is a tribute to the abundance of Baja Sur. In the kitchen the main component is the product of its land and seas; the most powerful tool is firewood; and global techniques are the perfect complement to enhance its flavor, providing balance and personality. We work with local fishermen, ranchers, and farmer friends to find the best existing products.
NEAT, our Lounge Bar upstairs has the most exciting and cosmopolitan vibe in town for a great night of drinks and chill.The atmosphere separates and transmits a different vibe to the dining area. Chillout and Live Music on Sundays, signature mixology and a special finger food menu to accompany the moment and a pleasant chat.

    Simply stunning in every way - the room is about as beautiful a space as I have ever dined in 💯 Even better? The food and the service were both more excellent than the space 🤤 All of the dishes come off of an open wood grill. All breads are baked in-house and the produce is so fresh it seems like it must have been grown behind the kitchen. Fish and seafood just out of the bay, delightful preps and excellent cooking. This is a world class restaurant in every way and would not be out of place in LA,San Francisco or New York with the Team exhibiting genuine warmth and a sincere desire to ensure that you enjoyyour experience. What could be better? Oh, yes - THE FOOD. Starters included Mexican shrimp 🍤 charred on the embers with carrot & jicama - wrapped in lettuce leaves. The fresh lime and serrano-ginger cream really set this dish off. What a pairing! A pasiila pepper 🌶 served relleno style with a scallop chorizo was next level - and the entreé of black bass with crispy garlic and Chile pequín accompanied by a grilled avocado was sublime. In fact - the small herb salad that sat alongside was so delicious - I asked for another 💁🏻‍♂️ Terrific Mexican wine, grilled bread with bone marrow butter and on and on… I could have happily ordered everything. It is not often, in fact its quite rare that I trip across a true gem. But I count myself lucky to now know about Lumbre. My sense is that you will too. Muchas gracias #lumbrerestaurant 🇲🇽

    Don’t miss out on this gem. By far one of the best meals we have had in Cabo. You will not be disappointed. Great drinks, service and food. We were all blown away and raving about everything. Oh and it has air conditioning. We had almost everything on the menu between the 4 of us. Nothing was bad. The standouts were the toro appetizer and the grilled octopus entree

    We stumbled upon this gem after many terrible dinners at our all inclusive. All I can say is WOW. Food was amazing, delicious with so much love and care put into each presentation. Since it was July 4th, they had a special of fried chicken which doesn’t seem very gourmet- but… oH MY!!! Outstanding. I would definitely go back!!!

    Lumbre is AMAZING!!! everything is cooked so that it is in direct contact with an expression of fire, whether grilled, roasted, on the open flame, on embers, over coal, charred. All the flavors and textures are spot on. The roasted beet salad served over lane and topped with charred greens and caramelized pistachios is wonderful. The New York with black oyster sauce and served with asparagus with lobster sabayon is something that I can order every time and will always be delicious and consistently cooked to perfection. The fatty tuna is an incredible medium sashimi with dashi and topped with black truffle. I can never get enough of it and we always end up ordering one more. And then dessert, or should I say desserts... the creme brûlée doughnut is my absolute favorite, but the meringue with balsamic strawberries is a nice and refreshing end to an always delicious meal. I will definitely keep going back for more.

    Exceptional menu for food lover. The grilled oysters with fries were my highlight but closely followed by the pork bun. Both were bursting with flavors. The wine list is a bit overpriced and somewhat limited but we had a wonderful bottle recommended and enjoyed it thoroughly. We loved this restaurant and would definitely recommend and will come back on our next visit.

    We have been coming to San Jose for over 25 years, and have seen many restaurants come and go. This is easily one of the top 5 all time restaurants for us. Not cheap, but the inventiveness of the menu, and flavor combinations are incredible and well worth the price. We were party of 5 and ate semi-family style with appetizers and entrees. Not a bad dish among our selections. The staff is very good as well without being overly attentive.
