El Gusto! Review
Even if you don't stay at the sumptuous Posada La Poza just outside town, lunch or dinner at its equally lovely restaurant will be one of the highlights of your Los Cabos vacation. Owners Jürg and Libusche Wiesendanger call their offerings "Swiss-Mex"—Mexican food with European touches, and careful attention to detail. Start with the vegetarian-based tortilla soup with three different types of dried chilies to give it just enough kick. Then sample the smoked-tuna flautas with raspberry-chipotle sauce, quesadillas with mushroom or shrimp, or marinated arrachera (flank steak) strips. You'll find dishes such as lamb shoulder in winter. Believe it or not, there is enough of an evening chill in the air that time of year that dining next to the fireplace feels cozy. Top your meal off with a sorbet, flan, or mousse, and possibly the best selection of wines in the region (all Mexican from northern Baja's Guadalupe Valley). Dinner is served from 6 to 8, which gives you time to catch the sunset.
