One of the questions we most field at the magazine is: But where do the locals eat? Look no further than Campestre Restaurant Bar, a favorite of locals and longtime expats. And, while it does require breaking away from the beaten path, you’ll quickly discover this is a journey worth taking. To be fair, just about any concierge or taxi driver could easily give you directions. And it’s only about a five-minute drive from the marina, if that. You’ll soon fall in love with for home-style cooking, generous portions, and excellent customer service. Campestre’s breakfasts are legendary: The green chilaquiles topped with steak are hearty and delicious. Come dinnertime, you can start with a steaming tortilla soup, 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. Traditional 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.
