It’s hard to believe that Solomons Landing turns 20 this year, but it’s easy to see what has allowed for such success. Visits to Solomon’s Landing often stretch out, from noon through the dinner hours. And why not? This is a prime people-watching perch on the Cabo San Lucas Marina, a surfeit of surf, turf, and cocktail options, and gorgeous maritime views of colorful sailboats, luxury yachts, and the occasional sea lion begging for snacks from the back of a returning fishing vessel.
The restaurant has long distinguished itself with quality and quantity—offering an enormous array of culinary treasures from bar, breakfast, lunch, kids, sushi, dinner, and dessert menus—and the lunch menu offers a suitably eclectic introduction to the restaurant’s voluminous charms. Dozens of terrific sandwich and hamburger options are crafted daily, including the delectable fresh tuna medallion cooked rare or medium and topped with arugula and tasty, delicate cilantro sauce. Margaritas, mojitos, and frosty cold ones are the perfect accompaniments to the nomadic groups of charro-clad mariachis singing songs of love and revolution in the Mexican afternoon.
They also tend to get along nicely with the restaurant’s killer ceviche and organic salad with lettuce, cherry tomatoes, fresh mango, tangerine wedges, hearts of palms, fresh mozzarella, feta cheese, and Solomon’s signature passion fruit dressing. Looking for something a little more traditionally Mexican? Specialty items like burritos, enchiladas, tacos, and quesadillas offer delicious entries into Baja cuisine.
