Known for its consistent flavorful food and affable atmosphere, Baja Cantina Marina is not resting on its laurels. Patrons returning to this Cheers like gathering place on the Cabo San Lucas waterfront will be pleased to see the addition of a sushi bar. Housed in the former bar area, it’s complete with all the accoutrements associated with that fabulous Asian fare. The addition is in response to the popularity of sushi on the menu.
