The best thing about Baja just might be the food

Local 8 - San Jose del Cabo
Top 5 Dining Spots in Cabo: Local 8One of the great things about going to Cabo is that you can get low-end at dive bars or dine at unbelievable restaurants like Local 8 in San Jose del Cabo. From the whole tempura-battered seabass to the just out of the ocean seared tuna and seafood linguini to the excellent wine list, Local 8's cuisine is great if not perfect. About the only thing that beats Local 8's food is its ambiance. At night, it's beautiful inside and out. It's expensive but don't miss it.

El Restaurante - Cabo Corridor
Top 5 Dining Spots in Cabo: El RestauranteAt Esperanza the now famous luxury resort, The Restaurant is known for offering one of the most amazing dining experiences in Cabo. The tiered open-air terrace is carved out of the dramatic bluffs overlooking the vibrant waters of the Sea of Cortez. The diverse menu features Mediterranean-style cuisine, (don't miss the lobster risotto) and one of the finest wine lists in Cabo... and there's a tequila menu with more than 100 of the best you can sip.

Edith's - Cabo San Lucas
Passionately committed to serving authentic Baja Californian regional cuisine, dining at Edith Jiménez's restaurant is a memorable event. Mouthwatering aromas emanate from the huge mesquite grill, colorful lanterns glow and clay chimneys ablaze in this rustic colonial setting and grand palapa, serving up a relaxed and elegant setting. Cabo San Lucas-born Chef Jesús Guadalupe Castro's recipes are graced with Edith Jiménez's signature touch, using organic produce from local farms, along with the finest meats, fish and seafood.

Mi Casa - Cabo San Lucas
Located in the Town Square in Cabo San Lucas, Mi Casa is known as the most authentic Mexican restaurant attracting both locals and tourists alike. It's almost an institution. The restaurant's flavorful dishes are inspired by various regions of Mexico, so expect some heat, homemade tortillas and an addictive mole poblano sauce. And don't miss the Mi Casa Margaritas, which are made with a splash of Licor de Damiana, a liqueur from Baja said to be an aphrodisiac. Better be prepared to wait for a table...but that's not so bad, in the bar of course.

Nicksan Sushi - Four Locations Around Cabo San Lucas
Six thousand miles separate Japan and Cabo San Lucas. The two countries and cultures could not be more different. Yet, here in the coastal desert at the tip of Baja you'll find a little piece of Japan that even the Japanese would envy Nicksan may have the freshest sushi on the planet. And you can taste the difference. You'll see the local influence in the lobster roll, balanced with crunchy Lobster, Mango and Avocado. Large sea scallops are graced with lemon olive oil and thin slices of fried garlic. And when was the last time you saw a Jalapeno Chile at a Japanese restaurant? This place is a must if visiting or living in Cabo.
