“Loved This Place!”
Reviewed 30 August 2014

Had dinner at El Zaguan and it was fantastic. We had delicious fresh fish (mahi mahi) with a cilantro butter sauce, tasty Camarones (shrimp) in a Poblano sauce and the kids had mango strawberry smoothies that were fantastic. The food was very fresh and the prices were good. They also took Visa…many restaurants in Baja don't! Carlos was our server and was very nice and gave great service. Next time we are down there, we will ask for him personally!

“Best fish tacos ever!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

During a recent trip to Cabo we rented a car and drove to Todos Santos for a day to experience "authentic Mexico". Our first stop in Todos Santos was for lunch at El Zaguan - an excellent meal for the whole family. The best though were my fish tacos! I had eaten fish tacos several times during my time in Baja California.. but nothing compared to the grilled Fish Tacos at EL Zaguan. Can't wait to go back sometime.

“Great lunch”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

We ate lunch at El Zaguan and had the most perfectly cooked shrimp. The bitter orange margaritas were soooo good!! We each had two. I wish we had one more day and we would have gone back for more El Zaguan.

“Amazingly fresh”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Nice little place with wonderfully fresh produce and seafood. The guacamole was some of the best we've ever had and the shrimp were cooked perfectly! If we are ever in Todos Santos again, we will be back.

“Amazing Food! Amazing Service!”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

It was so good, we ate here two nights in a row. Very good seafood topped with delicious mango butter and basil. We had fish, scallops and shrimp. It was all very fresh.

The waiter was very friendly and welcoming. On our second night, he even shared a couple tastes of a very nice tequila.

On the main street with nice little tables out front where you can watch the town and enjoy the warm weather. Can't wait to go back.
