We returned to La Panga last month. My wife and I had a great dinner, ceviche, sea bass with pasta and asparagus, and sirloin with mole. All were excellent, portions were generous. Unlike several recent reviews service was very good, but we did go early in the evening. In any case the servers were great and explained menu choices with... More

We went to LaPanga after the art walk. The seating outdoors was magical on a warm evening . Corn chowder and shrimp were really good. The margaritas had gotten great reviews but were limey. The lemon drop martini was good! We were never offered another drink or dessert. It was like our table of 5 became invisible.

The food was delicious. I had beet salad and shrimp egg rolls. My friends had corn chowder and shrimp. We were all happy with our meals, and the bread was soft and wonderful. The margaritas were too limey, but our waiter never came to ask us if they were okay. In fact, we wanted another drink and dessert, but they... More

I found La Panga walking around the old town of San Jose del Cabo. It looked nice...inner courtyard surrounded by palm trees. One of the evening specials was a local white fish encrusted with spices on a bed of green risotto and roasted asparagus. It was excellent as well as coming from the kitchen hot, a quality I rate highly... More

We dined at this restaurant on a cool evening. They provided us with blankets to keep us warm. The food and presentation is excellent. We chose the Sea Bass and were not disappointed. While you are dining, strolling Mariachi will come by your table to sing a song or you can request a song. Someone will also come by selling... More

Step foot into a courtyard that used to be two houses...the bricks date back to the 1600's! It's enchanting and the food is fabulous! Ordered the ceviche to start and I could have made it my dinner...delicious. Everything is made from scratch... Enjoyed the tuna for my main meal...melted in my mouth! Highly recommend! Thank you.

This restaurant offers a very attractive outdoor garden area as its dining room. The food is fine and you can see the kitchen working in its open building next to the garden, Be aware that a mariachi band does appear and you can be personally entertained or say no and listen to them entertain someone else while you avoid the...

For a beautiful and romantic culinary experience in San Jose del Cabo Mexico with great dining under the stars... with an extremely noteworthy bar creating the smoothest and most powerful margaritas one can encounter. This restaurant has a multi-level rustic outdoor venue with excellent food and service that truly captures the fine Mexican dining experience.

We didn't dine here but the bartender made the best mojito and the music was a live salsa band. Good times and great ambience!

I had a memorable sea bass dish. The chef did an excellent job - taste and presentation was excellent. The portions were generous, we took left overs home. The atmosphere and garden setting at night is absolutely lovely. The manager was friendly and made every effort to make us feel welcome and valued.
