Campestre Restaurant Bar – LCM 43 Spring 2016

Campestre_5.Oct.15_MV_103You know a restaurant must be really good when everybody raves about it, but it’s not exactly easy to find. Located a little off the beaten path, Campestre has been satisfying its customers since 2000 with not only good but excellent food and service. María Félix Rodríguez and Leonel Mendoza Serrano have found the secret to serving authentic Mexican food and inspiring guests to return time and time again. Here is what you can look forward to for dinner: Start with a margarita served in a mega soda-fountain-type glass followed by a tortilla soup that is known as one of the best in Los Cabos. Then comes the decision of what to order. Favorites include jumbo coconut shrimp, Imperial jumbo shrimp wrapped in bacon, devil-style shrimp, garlic fish, lobster, and surf and turf—all served with rice and garden vegetables. The pineapple and mango sauce served with the shrimp is not too sweet and a great accompaniment. Mexican food is prepared to perfection and includes all the typical favorites: fajitas, enchiladas, chile relleno, carne asada, and the list goes on. Dessert can be a simple, beautifully decorated flan with strawberries, or go for the show with flamed bananas or strawberries over ice cream or Mexican coffee.
