Located just an hour outside Los Cabos, many people overlook El Pescadero on their way to Todos Santos or Cerritos Beach, but in between these two popular spots is an emerging & vibrant food scene. Compared to a few years ago when our food options were limited, the food scene in El Pescadero has exploded here. An inspiration brought on by our abundance of locally sourced produce and seafood.
Don’t Miss Out on El Pescadero’s Amazing Food Scene
Here are a few of my favorite spots to enjoy a farm-to-table meal.
One of the first farm-to-table restaurants in our area of El Pescadero. This special spot creates inventive and nourishing organic meals that are garden inspired. They offer many vegetarian options and a peaceful garden dining experience.
Meals here are cooked in a wood-fired hearth by an Argentian chef. The meat and vegetables all come from the farm that the restaurant is situated on. Each item is grilled to perfection, whether it is vegetables or steak. You cannot beat the ambiance of this restaurant with an encircled dining area, Palo de arco thatched roof, and surrounded by flowers and herb gardens.
Another restaurant with a unique and magical ambiance. Mood lighting, a tasty eclectic menu, and an Airstream trailer. The tables are nestled in the classic desert scape, boulders, flowers, and cacti. For lunch or dinner, this is a great spot to get the fresh fare, from lamb gyros for lunch to chuletas for dinner (two of my personal favorites).
Hidden behind a vine-covered wall on the highway (across from gas station), this hidden gem offers an array of salads, fresh seafood, and tender steaks and ribs, accompanied by delicious sauces.
On Sundays, you will be lucky to find a parking space in this local treasure of a market. Agricole is our place to get freshly baked bread and stock up on produce, dry goods, and locally made tasty snacks. They might be best known and loved for their “fresas con crema,” a divine mix of fresh strawberries, fresh cream, coconut, and tapioca. My favorite Sunday breakfast spot is the restaurant and bar attached to Agricole, Cocina de Campo; They serve delicious breakfast, lunch, dinner, and libations in a beautiful garden.
Sunday Brunch-The weekend buffet at Rancho Pescadero is a luxurious buffet. Choose from a bottomless mimosa or a bloody mary, a pizza station, a pozole station, and an entire room dedicated to fresh bread and salad fixings from their gardens. Keep an eye out for the wheelbarrow filled with chocolate clams and various ceviches.
I cannot end this blog by adding some of my go-to taco spots in El Pescadero.
Carnitas Machin– specializes in tasty pork tacos. They are located right on the highway across from the gas station.
The famous Barracuda is known for consistently good fish and shrimp tacos. You might have seen them featured in the Netflix series, The Taco Chronicles.
If you are heading north from Los Cabos, don’t pass up these little gems of El Pescadero, and after you eat, explore even more of what this bountiful farming town has to offer.
