Edith's Restaurant - Review
Posted 24 April 2007 - 10:57 AM
Edithâ€™s was just as I remembered â€“ upbeat atmosphere, on-point wait staff, and outstanding food. I made reservations a month in advance, and Iâ€™m glad I did. After being in Cabo over Christmas in 2006, we were unable to get a reservation the entire time we were in Cabo â€“ they were booked through January! So this time, I thought ahead and made sure we would be able to get in.
The restaurant wasnâ€™t too crowded when we arrived, we sat under the large palapa for the first time, closer to the kitchen. Our waiters were wonderful, always cracking a joke and very attentive. By the time we left at around 9:30PM, there was a line out the door waiting to get a table.
But the food is what keeps bringing us back year after year. Tortilla soup is always a great starter, and the shrimp bisque was decadent. But no matter what, I always order a steak at Edithâ€™s. In my opinion, it blows away any other steak Iâ€™ve ever had â€“ even the prime restaurants in the US. My chipotle steak was salty & seared on the outside, and just melted on the inside. The chipotle sauce was delicious, with a soft heat that complimented the steak perfectly.
I did try a bit of the catch of the day, sea bass, which was perfectly cooked. Prepared Vera Cruz style, the sea bass was flaky and moist, not overcooked like usual. The peppers and sauce smothered the fish for a wonderful addition.
For dessert, flan. Creamy and light, Edithâ€™s flan is one of the best.
Youâ€™re probably wondering why Iâ€™m bothering putting a review of a restaurant on this website. Edithâ€™s can only accommodate groups up to 60 people, so we canâ€™t use them for any of our wedding events (like the rehearsal dinner), so we have decided to take our parents, grandparents and siblings to Edithâ€™s the evening before our wedding guests arrive. This will allow us to say â€œthanksâ€ to our family for all of their support and let us enjoy a quiet, fabulous meal with our closest family.
My only complaint is this: Edithâ€™s used to have the best view of the sunset that I have known. Unfortunately, there is a condo/hotel development going up directly across the street which seems to now block the majority of the view Edithâ€™s once enjoyed. A minor annoyance at best.
But if youâ€™re ever in Cabo and have never been to Edithâ€™s, check it out. Itâ€™s one of the most expensive, but itâ€™s still my favorite. Oh, and they now offer online reservations, which is very convenient for planning in advance!

The website has a map, but I'm not much more help than that!
I know it's always either the first or second street on the left when coming from the Corridor, but I can't remember if it's the same street as Lenny's Deli or not.

Thanks for the review. Would you suggest us going there to celebrate our 1 year anniversary coming up? Or should we just go there one night with our friends who are also coming? How private is it?

I actually ate at Edith's once with my father (mom was not feeling well) and they put us near the wine room, and it definitely looked like we were dating, older guy with a young new girlfriend. People were staring...Gross!
I suggested it to two of my good friends while they were honeymooning at Las Ventanas (different times) and they both said they were so glad to get off the resort, that the food was out of this world and just made the honeymoon so special.
If you make reservations for later in the evening, it'll be dark, and mostly lit by candles. The entire restaurant is outdoors, like most in Cabo, and so you only get as much light as they provide! But it can be very romantic.
So make sure and let them know your special occasion and I promise you will not be disappointed!
