Cabo Dining Adventures: Part III

Los Tres Gallos Restaurante

On the second evening of our trip, I coordinated with our personal concierge and made a reservation at the popular Los Tres Gallos Restaurante. This place came highly recommended as a place to visit and even the taxi driver agreed. The entire group of 5 went so our cab was a little under $15 to get there. The restaurant is located at 20 de Noviembre S/N Col. Centro 23469 Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur Mexico and took roughly 15 minutes to get to. The restaurant is located on a narrow one way street so getting out of the cab and into the restaurant was a bit much.  Once we entered, we immediately noticed that it was an outdoor restaurant.

IMAG1403The restaurant had an outdoor-covered kitchen and most of the dining tables were located under beautiful trees with lights on them.  There was a covered eating area but it appeared that they preferred that you have the outdoor eating experience. This would prove to be problematic later. Once we were seated, I noticed that we needed to wipe down the seats to clear the red flowers, leaves, and other droppings from the above trees. My mother did not quite get the memo and ended up with huge red stains on her beautiful linen white pants that did not look all that flattering. It was quite disappointing but luckily we were going right back to the resort after the meal so she could change.

We started our meal with a round of their House Margaritas that were simply lime flavored with a few added citrus flavors and that familiar Mexican chili on the rim of the glass.  I very much enjoyed my margarita and the presentation was welcoming also. After a quick glance of the menu, I decided I wanted the lobster but the server quickly notified us that the lobster was not available that night and I was instantly disappointed. We started with two orders of guacamole and chips as I pondered on an alternative. The guacamole, chips, and even the salsa were all tasty.  There was nothing spectacular about it from what I could recall. They were all good nonetheless.

At the same time, there was a pretty loud but talented Mariachi band serenading the dinner guest which made deciding on a dish that much more difficult.  I really was trying to stay away from red meat and the other options did not look all that exciting to me. The band ended up making their way to our table later in the evening and we enjoyed their music and had great fun!

My mother, her friend, and I all decided to get the ribeye steak with refried beans instead of the vegetables that it came with. My steak as cooked medium as I liked it and my mother took a cut out of her steak to display that her steak was cooked perfectly as well. In addition, her friend also ordered a medium steak and was satisfied with the steak.  The steak was good but it definitely as not as good as the steak from the night before.  Each of our steaks was served with sautéed onions, peppers, and tomatoes. I found it a bit odd that the refried beans serving were so small but I enjoyed the flavors.

My friend had another round of green chili enchiladas of which she definitely enjoyed. She expressed that the sauce was flavorful and the cheese was pretty good. I cannot recall her comparison to the lunch at Maria’s the day before but I do know that I do not remember her wasting any of these leftovers. So that’s a pretty good sign. Our other party guest ordered the Mole chicken served with rice and beans. The chicken was covered with the mole sauce, of which I am not a fan, but she definitely enjoyed her meal and said that the flavors and seasonings were enjoyable to her.

Because we ordered at least 2 drinks, we were full and ended our meal with our cocktails.  I spent roughly $50 at this restaurant for my meal, drinks, taxes, and tip. Again, I had not remembered to photograph the menu so I cannot recall the exact amount of each dish ordered. I’ll get better at this later in the trip, I promise.  Overall we had a wonderful time at this restaurant other than the pants mishap at the end of the meal.
