Cabo San Lucas, Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, Mexico
View Accompany Dish – Either by morning, midday or at night, there is a place in Cabo San Lucas with an unbeatable view to accompany your dish. The main beach of Los Cabos called “El Médano” which can be translated as the “the Dune”. Long time ago before our town became a paradisiac resort destination, all the visitors could see from the beach was dune after dune, therefore the name was coined and nowadays we all call it “El Médano”.
Now our beloved beach is full with tourists, resorts, activities and restaurants with a variety of dishes and tastes. If you are in Cabo, there is no way you can avoid been here, I know people that spend their whole vacation in Medano Beach. Here we are again presenting you our Top Seven pick for restaurants in this marvelous and iconic place of Los Cabos.

Once upon a time, when Cabo was starting back in the 70’s, there was a lonely palapa serving drinks with a small kitchen in the middle of the beach; the owner, a gringo Viejo (old gringo, as Carlos Fuentes, the Mexican writer would say) referred to the place as The Office.
