On a hot summer night, there’s nothing like retreating to the Cabo San Lucas Marina for cold drinks and a relaxing meal as breeze dances its way off of the Sea of Cortés. One favorite spot is the Baja Lobster Co., part of the celebrated Marina Golden Zone group of businesses. The restaurant reopened after Hurricane Odile with a renovated interior decor and new white-colored outdoor patio deck, so patrons can dine indoors or outside. Subtle and smooth listening live music entertainment is available weeknights 6:30 p.m.–9 p.m. Dinner menu prices are in the $16 U.S.–$23 U.S. per plate range, a nice surprise given their superb quality and generous portions. Live lobsters caught off the coasts of Baja California Sur cities Mulegé and Loreto are also on-site, and the menu includes a dizzying array of seafood, salads, steaks, lobster, clam chowder, coconut shrimp, and the catch of the day. Cabo San Lucas Marina, Cabo San Lucas, (624) 145-6011, AmEx, MasterCard, and Visa accepted. Daily 11 a.m.–11 p.m. $–$$$ F.R.
