Blue Fish Seafood Now at the Shoppes at Palmilla
Popular demand has moved Blue Fish Seafood from its intimate 10-table eatery at Plaza Península—which it had occupied since 2011—to a hip new patio perch at the Shoppes at Palmilla, an upscale shopping and dining mecca just outside of San José del Cabo. Longtime fans of the restaurant needn’t worry, however. Chef Ildefonso “Poncho” Avilés is still the standard bearer for traditional Baja California Sur style seafood, from ceviches and sashimis to aguachiles and fresh fish-loaded tacos. Highlights include his special sea bass ceviche featuring fresh mango and a delicious garlic grilled octopus. For more information, call (624) 172-6652 or visit www.bluefishcabo.com.
