Best Seafood Restaurants in Cabo San Lucas

Being right on the ocean, Cabo has some of the freshest seafood I've ever had. You can even take your catch of the day; most places will cook it for you however you'd like! Let's talk about some of the best seafood spots in town:


#5 Mariscos Mazatlan

Downtown Cabo San Lucas. Open from 11 am to 10 pm.

Starting off with a classic. This location has been open for as long as I can remember. Not the best, but it is a true staple in Cabo.


#4 El Toro Güero

Downtown Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. Open from 11 am to 7:30 pm.

They started in Mazatlan, Sinaloa, but have several locations throughout the country. Their headquarters are located in San Jose del Cabo. They're family-owned and a favorite for locals. They even have plans to open new locations in La Paz and Todos Santos.


#3 El Torito

Downtown Cabo San Lucas. Open from 10 am to 7:30 pm.

Start off with a "consomé de la casa," a little coup of seafood broth. Add your own touch to it with lime and maybe some hot sauce. They have two menus here, one with all text and one with pictures; I'm a visual person, so the picture book helped me pick. We had the regular oysters and the Special oysters, both good, but there's a reason they're the special oysters (bottom right.) The tostadas are a mound of food, enough for two tostadas, really!


#3 Pata Salada

Bordo Cabo San Lucas or Tezal Cabo San Lucas. Bordo open from 12 pm to 8pm. Tezal open from 1 pm to 9 pm.

This is a hidden gem. They have pretty big portions; if you order a tostada, it doesn't come served as a tostada. The tostadas come on the side, so you can make your perfect bite every time. Kick your meal off with an oyster shot and a Bloody Mary; you can't go wrong!


#1 Wachinango's

Downtown Cabo San Lucas. Open from 8 am to 11 pm.

An instant classic, they take their inspiration from locally sourced ingredients. All their guests fall in love with their delicious dishes, like aguachiles, grilled octopus, and the spectacular service. Not to mention the drinks are to die for, from mezcaltitas to jalapeño margaritas. They even have delicious desserts like pecan pie, chocoflan, and corn cake.
