“A short walk makes a Big difference”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

Breakfast .....good
Lunch...........Good
Dinner..........GOOD

We ate here 4 times during our stay in Cabo. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner (twice). I can honestly say that each thing we ordered was excellent. The prices were very reasonable especially compared to places on the marina. Pancho and his staff are genuinely friendly and eager to help. Do yourself a favor and make the short one block walk back from the marina! You won't be disappointed!

“A Jewel in Los Cabos”
Reviewed 23 November 2013 via mobile

We have traveled to Cabo San Lucas for the past 15 years and typically visit 2-3 times per year. This evening our family and friends had the unexpected pleasure of selecting Los Barriles for dinner on the final night of our stay. Having Cabo as a second home we typically stay with the proven favorites we have come to know thru the years. It's easy to overlook this restaurant as it is at the end of a row of other pretty well known places that compete mostly on price with few frills. This is definitely the classiest of the bunch and has great ambience, friendly wait staff and terrific live music by a guitar player with an incredible voice (also, doesn't play all the touristy cliched Mexican and Spanish songs that you here in all the other restaurants). But, the food here is the star. The prices though slightly higher than some of the neighboring establishments were absolutely well worth it for the quality of food, taste and preparation (some of it prepared table side). Several in our party ordered drinks and we were all amazed at the enormous frozen margaritas (only $7 but easily 3 drink in 1) and piña coladas. For dinner, my wife ordered lobster which at $37 wasn't exactly cheap until they brought her 3 large lobster tails perfectly grilled with terrific side sauces (she had the mango sauce which was awesome). Others ordered fresh fish (whole grilled snapper $18- another incredible deal) and grilled shrimp (again with great side sauces). For dessert we had a table side prepared bananas foster that was treated by the owner/general manager who convinced us to try the restaurant since "I was his old high school buddy (joke)". I told him he's a smart business person as he's earned a place in our "regulars" rotation when we visit Cabo on future trips. You'll be glad you tried it and probably make it a regular place to visit as we intend to.

“Outstanding service!”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

We had breakfast and dinner at Los Barriles and really enjoyed each meal. The quality and portion size exceeded our expectations and the atmosphere was classic Mexico without being corny or intruding. We originally stopped here for breakfast as we were shopping one morning and were so impressed with the fresh squeezed OJ, fresh ripe fruit, and eggs cooked to perfection that we agreed to come back for dinner. Our dinner (fresh fish) was prepared exactly to our liking and the Cadillac margaritas were so good I had two! Or maybe three, I'm not sure. ;-) Overall a great place for any meal and well worth the extra walking to get there from the main tourist strip.

“Great meals and great service”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

We again return to this restaurant, and it is still a favorite. We have not had a bad item, and the different sauces available for almost all entrees are great. The Caesar Salad made at the table is the best we have had. Drinks are good, and the personnel are friendly, and willing to create almost anything you would like. Background music is very pleasant after having been besieged by mariachi bands at other restaurants. We will be bac.
