Fodor’s Expert Review
A former sugarcane mill dating back to 1888, this quaint restaurant is surrounded by farmland that provides organic fruits and vegetables to many of Cabo’s top eateries. Wildflowers in mason jars and hand painted clay dishes set the scene at this rustic spot where the menu is based on the season’s harvest. Start with heirloom tomato soup and a micro green salad with tamarind vinaigrette. For something fresh and innovative, try the shrimp tacos on thinly sliced jicama (instead of tortillas) topped with a pineapple salsa. A selection of pizzas, and slow roasted meats like the pork shank with green mole and baked eggplant, are cooked in a wood fire oven. One of the secrets to the fine flavors is the house made herbal oil that is dribbled on breads and meats. A cooking class takes place at 10 and 4, by reservation only. Be sure to visit the small gift shop selling salsas, mole, chocolate, jewelry, and other locally made products.
