Labels and Lacquer Food Guide To Cabo
One of our favorite parts of traveling to Cabo was getting to try new restaurants. Here are our favorite places to go!
This was the first restaurant we stopped to grab a quick bite to eat from in Cabo. We had just landed in the city, and we were looking to get a quick bite to eat because we were starving. Traveling always has a way to increase your appetite.
And boy, did we pick a great place to eat. Roasted served primarily tacos, so we were obviously excited. Authentic Mexican tacos were what we had signed up for, you know! We were not disappointed by this place. It was authentic and very Cabo— sweating through your meal due to the outside seating and all. It’s not glamorous, but it’s a way of life when it’s that hot, ok?
The waiter enjoyed welcoming us to Cabo so much so that he even brought out a giant slice of chocolate cake for dessert that was “on the house.” Does he know the way to a girl’s heart or what? I would highly recommend you trying this place out for a nice lunch if you ever make your way down to Mexico.
We stopped here for “breakfast,” and even though it was after 12, they still let us order from the breakfast menu. Anytime is breakfast time, you know? While there were some delicious sweet items on the menu like pancakes and waffles, I was feeling going the more savory route. So, I ordered a breakfast burrito. When in Mexico, you know?
The burrito was filled with potatoes, eggs, bacon and cheese, so needless to say it was delicious! I don’t know how they make their tortillas there— but I am a fan. How I wish I could have brought a suitcase full of those home with me!
The service was lovely, and no matter what time you stop by Solomon’s Landing, do yourself a favor and order some breakfast.
Eating at Bar Esquina was one of my favorite dining experiences (not even just in Cabo but like ever). It was the perfect time of day, around 7:00 pm. There was a nice breeze blowing in from the Sea of Cortez and a live band was playing. Not to mention— we ordered pizza, so, enough said.
We split two pizzas— BBQ chicken and one that had pork, bleu cheese and arugula on top. They were both absolutely scrumptious. Then, we ended the wonderful meal with chocolate lava cake and rice milk ice cream. So good, you guys. So good.
You have to stop here for a visit in Cabo. It just wouldn’t be right if you didn’t.
Before going to Cabo I had done research on what to see and do, and most importantly-- where to eat. I kept seeing rave reviews about Sunset Da Mona Lisa. When I went to their website I was in awe of how beautiful everything looked. Oh and when I saw it was ranked top five coolest restaurants in the world by the International New York Times, I made sure that was on our MUST-DO list while in Cabo.
The restaurant is a little off the beaten path, but when you get there you are truly transported to a different world. There are rock paths that lead you to your table. The views from from the table are breathtaking. You feel like you are sitting in the middle of the Sea of Cortez and you can even see the infamous Arch of Cabo.
As if the views weren’t enough dinner was delicious, too. It was five courses of deliciousness to be exact. First came the soup, then the salad, the entrée, dessert, and then more little desserts and fruit platter, compliments of the chef. I know this place seems too good to be true, and that's why the Labels and Lacquer girls definitely approve of Sunset Da Mona Lisa.
Baja Cantina sits right on Medano Beach in Cabo San Lucas. It’s the perfect location to relax, sit back and enjoy some authentic Mexican food. You can literally swim up to the shore and feel like a mermaid because you will be dining in your bikini at a table on the sand. We opted to order tacos and carnitas with a Drunk Monkey to drink, best decision of our lives! Feel some sand in between your toes and go to Baja Cantina for yummy food.
When we arrived to Señor Sweets we had one thing on our mind-- desserts. We always have desserts on the brain! We flipped through the menu and everything looked delicious, but we chose to order an appetizer (to not look too eager) and then straight to dessert! Please and thank you. We got a pastry stuffed with gelato (nutella and coffee brownie) and then deep-fried cheesecake bites. I know it doesn’t seem like real life. It really happened, and it was delicious.
We highly suggest going to Señor Sweets for you entire meal, or just for dessert! ;)
