    Beautiful roof top restaurant in San Jose de Cabo. Loved sitting amongst the greenery, listening to live music and watching people below. Baja shrimp and Tuna tacos were delicious. Beetroot salad could have used more greens, less beets and a little less goat cheese. Drinks were disappointing, didn’t have my first choice the Clementine, so ordered a Hendricks martini which tasted mostly like ice. Would go again but stick to wine or beer.

    Great dinner with the family. Seafood heavy, so was a little worried about one in the group but she got the chicken and was very happy. Guac and tuna tartare apps were amazing. Nice ambiance on the rooftop. Would definitely dine again.

    Spent a very enjoyable evening here. The food was excellent. Best guacamole and fabulous Baja shrimp tacos. The restaurant itself isn’t noisy save fir the loud music they sometimes play. But I’m on the older side bi suppose younger folks don’t mind it. Wait staff were really excellent.

    Lovely setting on the rooftop overlooking San Jose del Cabo. The food and drinks were excellent, the waitress did not rush us but was attentive, and the music, a violinist, was excellent. It all made for an overall wonderful dining experience!

    We wanted to love this restaurant. Unfortunately our experience was not great. We ordered several small plates that were very mediocre. The service wasn’t very good even though there were only 5 tables including us in the restaurant. The staff came through the restaurant in the middle of our dinner mopping the floor with a strong ammonia smelling cleaner. It was awful! Lastly they had an amazing violinist however it was so loud and the regular sound system was left competing with the violin background music. None of the customers in the restaurant could understand what was going on. We would not recommend this restaurant. Its only saving grace was the beautiful tree in the center of the room. They should stick to cocktails!

    Nuestra experiencia fue muy buena. Los cócteles que sirven son súper ricos y original (especialmente el Roku Coctel) Los quesos franceses que tienen son una maravilla, el aguachile de camaron es muy sabroso, y el servicio es excelente. Además, la vista al atardecer desde allí es impresionante. Es un lugar perfecto para disfrutar de buena comida y un ambiente increíble.

    Simaruba is a real foodie's paradise! Their New York Steak flambéed with Mezcal, and the Salmon with Japanese spices were like flavor fireworks. The drinks? Top-notch, with an amazing selection of wines and super creative cocktails. Plus, the service by Alexandra was on point. Amazing atmosphere with the tree in the middle of the terrace! The best part? They have very fair prices for amazing quality.

    El lugar es lindo, en época de calor ojalá puedan tener un mejor sistema para ventilar su terraza. La comida estuvo excelente al igual que sus bebidas. Recomendamos tener repelente disponible ya que había mosquitos.

    Gorgeous restaurant and bar in the center of San Jose del Cabo. I came at the sunset time and it was an amazing experience with a perfect view of the sunset over the mountains. I had a cocktail, then a bottle of wine. They have a great wine selection, at very good price , and ask them for a special recommendation because they offered me some wine that are very exclusive.

    An unforgettable dining experience! This incredible and beautiful restaurant has a spectacular terrace with breathtaking sunsets. A lovely, relaxing atmosphere with softly played music. A classy and inviting place for delicious food, incredible cocktails, and expert staff. The ambiance is amazing. The décor and lighting is very romantic and inviting. Outstanding Cocktails by Alejandro Chacon. He is an amazing mixologist. His drinks were exotic and delicious. The food was superb and presented beautifully. All food flavors were well balanced. An inviting menu of both familiar and complex design. This is the perfect place for delicious food, exotic drinks, and a welcoming vibe!!

    Beautiful rooftop setting that was difficult to find and enter. Once in the space was inviting and comforting. We had a nice view of the street and all of the action. The drinks were good and the food even better. The service was attentive and the live music was a plus. Really enjoyed the ambiance and the fare. We will be joining them again soon !!

    Amazing Terrasse in the center of San Jose del Cabo! We started with some amazing cocktails! The bartender came to the table , he was amazing explaining us the story behind each cocktails, and taste of the cocktails are incredible! Then we started with some nice appetizers (what they call tapas) , we had some amazing Pintxos with Serrano ham, Sashimi that was very fresh and savory. Then , as main courses we tried the Duck breast that come with a nice Mexican Sauce (Red Mole), the Burrata and their octopus was AMAZING!!! To go with the food , they have a large selection of wine , with a very interesting selection, with some unusual reference (we tried a Pinot Noir from Patagonia … it was an excellent surprise and an amazing recommendation from the manager) And to end our dinner , they came to the table to present their selection of desert , we chose the raspberry and coconut tart and the lemon Meringue pie , they were perfect to end our evening with some nice cocktails (Carajillo and one of their signature cocktail)
