Cabo San Lucas, Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, México
Madeira Bistro is, simply put, one of the best little-known dining establishments in the heart of downtown Cabo San Lucas.
The exquisitely delicious and most popular entrée on its menu is the $28 U.S. all-you-can-eat rotisserie rounds of savory meats, served with a highly recommended Argentina wine.
The rodizio-style barbecue plate includes basil-flavored mashed potatoes, sweet and tasty cabbage coleslaw, two small chicken wings, and three sweet potato slices.
The dizzying array of sliced meats, served round after round, by chef Misael LeGaria consist of arrachera, rib-eye, spicy Mexican chorizo hot links, top sirloin, turkey wrapped in bacon, brochette, barbecue ribs, and lamb. The mesquite fireâ€“cooked Brazilian-style meats are exceptional.
The bilingual staff at Madeira is very attentive, gracious, and exceedingly knowledgeable of the wine list pairings and recommendations of any dinner choice.
The accompanying slices of delectable pineapple and their enzymes are another nice fit for such an unforgettable meal. Other delicious dinner menu choices include salads, Italian pastas, shrimp, and seafood fish selections.
There aren’t many things in the culinary world that compare to the rich aroma of perfectly marinated steaks cooking over an open-fire grill. That’s the exact same, wonderful sensation you get when entering Madeira Bistro. The downtown restaurant is a steak lover’s Valhalla.
The mouthwatering lineup of flank, top sirloin, and rib eye steaks, grilled Spanish sausage, and barbecued ribs is served rodízio style, which means a variety of meats are grilled on metal skewers, then delivered to your table and sliced directly onto your plate. Chef Misael LeGaria is an expert in this traditional Brazilian style of grilling, and his marinades enhance the flavor of each cut.
Diners who opt for the very reasonably priced ($28 U.S. per person) rodízio-style all-you-can-eat dinner also receive a platter of side dishes that includes mashed potatoes, fluffy long-grained rice, and purple cabbage slaw. The basil-flavored mashed potatoes are spectacular. The side platter also includes a couple of chicken wings to whet the appetite. Grilled pineapple is served to cleanse the palate between servings, and you’ll also get delicious fried bananas.
The menu also features salads, pasta, fish, and shrimp entrées. But make no mistake about it: This is a steak house; a very good steak house. Intersection of Calle Vicente Guerrero and Francisco I. Madero (a half block from Cabo Wabo), Cabo San Lucas, (624) 150-5089 or (624) 175-3593.
