    We had a lovely dinner at Tequila. It was a very quiet night at the restaurant and we loved the setting and atmosphere! Our needs were taken care of by José. He was outstanding and very fun to talk with. We had the crab cakes, giant shrimp and catch of the day which was yellow tail. All grilled to perfection and served immediately after cooking. We would highly recommend Tequila!

    Good food and great service. We were escorted by the maitre d’ to the inner courtyard and were then greeted by the head waiter, Jose. We were treated to a squash, zucchini cream soup. Very tasty. For appetizers we shared the Crab Cake and Octopus al Ajillo. Both were delicious but we especially liked the octopus; tender and flavorful. My wife had the the catch of the day, grilled yellowtail over grilled zucchini. She loved it. I had the Linguine di Mare with scallops, shrimp and clams. I can say, it was probably the best seafood pasta I have ever had. José’s service was impeccable.

    My husband and I have frequented most of the restaurants in the San Jose area, and Tequila remains our favourite. Great food, service, and ambiance. Tequila feels as though you have been transported to a tropical oasis. Jose was our server - so friendly, attentive, and gave great recommendations! We cannot wait to come back!

    It was nice to go to a restaurant that was able to accommodate vegans as well as the rest of our party. The owner was very friendly and welcoming. They started the meal off with a shot glass of zucchini soup, which was just amazing! I would definitely recommend Tequila restaurant the one comment I do have is you must make sure you make reservations for this outstanding restaurant!

    Excellent dinner last night at Tequila. A beautiful outdoor setting. Service top notch. Shout out to Jose. Tortilla soup, grilled Caesar salad, grilled yellow tail, pork shank and grilled zucchini on the side… all excellent. Great selection of margaritas. Too full for dessert. Will definitely return.

    We had an early dinner. Jose was super attentive but not overly so. Jalapeño and cucumber margarita was the best- could be a tad spicier for my taste but very refreshing! Cornish game hen was so juicy and tender!! Garden atmosphere so relaxing. We always stop in when we visit San Jose and will keep doing so. A great affordable choice. More for your money here.

    My husband and I loved this restaurant during our 3 week stay in San Jose del Cabo. Jose our server was so attentive and helpful. The garden setting is romantic and beautiful. Jerome is running this place with heart, he gave us great recommendations for our trip to La Paz. The food is amazing and at good value for what you are getting compared to other similar restaurants in the area. We went for NYE with friends and celebrated our anniversary there last night. It has been one of our favorite restaurants in the San Jose eel Cabo area. They are going to start doing breakfast/brunch too! Excited to try that when we come back to San Jose del Cabo. Some of our favorites were the grilled Caesar salad, steak, jumbo shrimp, and seafood pasta. The house margarita are amazing too!

    The food is incredible, the drinks were amazing, and the service was awesome. Catch of the day was delicious and well presented but the pork shank was out of this world. Order the giant prawns for an appetizer, a bit pricy but well worth it. Great setting to celebrate a special occasion or just to have a unique experience in the center of San Jose del Cabo.

    Certainly ranks at the bottom of the restaurants we visited. All wine on the list is from Mexico, which can be good, but we must have selected one that was unremarkable and overpriced. At $50/ bottle, it was one of the least expensive, but the menu didn’t provide any details on where the vineyard was located and server could describe. For appetizers, we ordered the shrimp bomb and, unlike the name, had practically no flavor. Unfortunately the same can be said about the entrees. Mezcal shrimp and green mole pork disappointed. Black beans on shrimp dish added no flavor. Really expensive for food quality.
