Lorenzillo's Review

Gleaming hardwood floors and polished brass give a nautical flair to this second-floor dining room, where fresh lobster is king. Lorenzillo's has long been a fixture in Cancún, where lobster is raised on the company's farm. That Caribbean lobster is shipped to Los Cabos and served 18 ways (the simpler preparations—steamed or grilled with lots of melted butter—are best). Menu items are named after pirates and Caribbean marine history, so Sir Francis Drake is the rib-eye steak, El Barlovento is abalone sashimi with chipotle soy sauce, and El Doblón is a giant chop on the bone. Various sized lobsters and lobster tails are served with spinach puree and linguine or potato, while other options like Alaska king crab, conch, coconut shrimp, or beef medallions round out the menu. The dessert list is lengthy and mouthwatering, and if you're in the mood for a less formal meal, an oyster bar with a limited selection of the same menu sits on the pier near the entrance.

    WORST FOOD AND DINING EXPERIENCE EVER

    If someone tells you to eat at Lorenzillo's run in the opposite direction. We have never had such horrible food at ridiculous five star prices! Seriously, Red Lobster would have been upscale compared to the crap we were served. The so called lobster cakes were balls of fried dough-no lobster and the surf n turf (over a $100) tasted like they made the staek last year and re-heated it! I never write reviews of restaurants since it is so subjective but this restaurant is so bad I felt it necessary to warn other unsuspecting people. The sad thing is our concierge actually recommended this place-I wonder what the pay off was-

    Kind of Expensive

    The atmosphere of this Cabo Restaurant is quite nice, overlooking the marina, While the food is good, including the lobster and Fish Diabla, other dished were somewhat disappointing. They do have a fairly good wine list of local and imported wines, however the meal was very expensive
