Los Cabos is a long way from Bavaria, but the menu and decor at Black Forest would have you believe otherwise. You’ll feel transported to the German state at this picture-perfect restaurant and beer hall. The decor is Old World with hand-painted murals adorning the walls. This is the only place in Cabo to taste schnitzel, spaetzle, and sauerkraut. And, even better, you head upstairs for a full biergarten experience. Black Forest opened in early 2015 and is a great addition to the growing variety of ethnic restaurants in Los Cabos. There are special cocktails and martinis as well as appetizers like Bavarian baked pretzels and bratwurst dipper. But don’t go overboard on snacks; there’s more to come: grilled pork hock, beef roulade smothered in rich gravy, smoked pork chop with shrimp and homemade bratwurst served with sides of red cabbage, or sauerkraut and choice of mashed potatoes or pomme croquette. Lighter fare is offered, and children 5 and younger eat free. Save room for hot apple strudel. Miguel Hidalgo, Cabo San Lucas, (624) 143-7799, Mon.–Sat. 4 p.m.–10 p.m.; Biergarten open till midnight. MasterCard, Visa, and vouchers accepted. $$ S.A.B.
