My wife and I went here a few nights ago based on very high Trip Advisor reviews and like most all others we had a fantastic meal, drinks were great, portions are large and price was good, what's not to like we will be going back again.

We stayed at the El Zalate condos right beside Sardina Cantina. We went up for breakfast and it was very good. The staff were very friendly and even gave us a sample free drink. The eggs benedict was very good. Prices were a little high but they have a discount coupon for breakfast. The best deal seems like happy hour... More

Ventured into this little restaurant near San Jose Del Cabo on the corridor for lunch last November. Another patron suggested we try the shrimp tacos done panko style. Wow, best I've ever had and I have been coming to Cabo since 1991. We were hooked on these so much that we came back for the shrimp taco's two more days!!... More

Having only arrived in San Jose del Cabo yesterday, we asked for a recommendation for dinner. Am I ever glad that we took the suggestion of dining at Sardinia Cantina. The cantina is small but it makes up for it in the delicious food we were served. The fish tacos my husband had were the best he's ever had. Three... More

The food was the best. The seared yellow fin was incredible, my Wife had the chicken enchiladas. We swapped in the middle of our dinners and wow, just great food. Two glasses of wine total and two dinners, 56.00 usd. We're going back. There was road noise but the waiter and the food made up for it.

We visited this charming restaurant four times in seven days, yes it's that good. The wait staff is efficient and friendly. If you are lucky enough to be having a birthday while there let them know - waiters that could be professionals -baritones and a bass! The portions are very large and can easily be shared but you'll want your... More

Ate there several times over the last week! Amazing breakfast (would like to bath in the crab Benedict!). The fruit is art. Halibut fish-n-chips deserves its own food category! Friendly staff. Too bad they don't offer rooms...or there would be no reason to ever leave!

On a whim, my son and I stopped in to eat dinner at a small road side restaurant while staying in Cabo San Jose'. It was a great decision, the first night the food was great, my son ordered a special, and I ordered a regular menu item. We were both very satisfied with our meals. The wine was great... More
