Cabo San Lucas, Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, Mexico
Campestre Restaurant Cabo San Lucas first lets start with the word. It loosely translates into country, the kind of country where you would go to have a picnic or as Canned Heat sang in their song from the 60’s, “Going up the country”, get it? This is a Mexican restaurant located in the center of town. If you have not been there before, take a taxi and you will not get lost. They are open all day from 7:30am to 9pm with the exception of Sunday which they close at 2pm and they are closed on Saturday. This is a fun place to go. They are known for their large portions and inexpensive prices. The staff is extremely friendly and most of the employees are related through their family members so they provide a happy scene when you are there.
Lets start with breakfast. This is a very popular restaurant so expect a five to ten minute wait when you go there for breakfast in the morning and they do not take reservations in the morning so deal with it. They have a traditional selection of Mexican dishes. I will quote all prices in pesos and the current exchange rate is 18 pesos to one dollar which can vary. Eggs with either ham, bacon, sausage or chorizo and they come with frijoles and potatoes for $70 pesos. One of my favorites is huevo’s rancheros, also $70 pesos. Eggs with Machaca, $99 pesos. Omelets are $90 pesos and if you want to kick it up a notch, try a shrimp and cheese omelet for only $120 pesos. If you love Chilaquiles, they offer them in both a red or a green sauce and they come with either chicken or meat for only $120 pesos. You can order a side of Chilaquiles with your normal breakfast for only $35 pesos. Not to be outdone, they have daily specials that run from $95 to $120 pesos that also include coffee and a glass offresh orange juice and that is a great deal. Coffee is only $30 pesos and if you need a Bloody Mary, that is only $60 pesos.
Lets jump into the lunch menu. Everybody loves Guacamole $75 pesos, Nachos $80 pesos and Tortilla Soup $60 pesos and the soup of the day is only $25 pesos. Chicken Fajitas $120 pesos or meat Fajitas for $120 pesos. They have six different styles of fish for only $130 pesos and you can get a half order for $90 pesos. Traditional Mexican dishes like chicken enchiladas in either a red or a green sauce, $95 pesos. If you need a beer to wash all of this down with, they are only $35 pesos. They have four different styles of shrimps for only $199 pesos and if you want either Coconut or Imperial Shrimp, they are $230 pesos.
If you decide to go there for dinner, the prices are basically the same as the lunch prices with the exception that they have a larger selection of things to choose from. Regardless of which meal or time of day you decide to go to Campestre, you will not be disappointed and remember, they serve large portions so you will not leave hungry.
