El Chilar, San José del Cabo

1490 Calle Juarez
San José del Cabo
Tel: 52 624 142 2544's insider take:

The Virgin of Guadalupe murals San José's not-so secret Mexican standout teeter on kitschy, but the excellent cooking and wine and tequila selection more than make up for them. Chef Armando Montaña uses chillies from throughout Mexico to enhance the flavor (without burning the taste buds) of traditional and continental dishes, coating rack of lamb with chili ancho and sugar-cane honey and boosting the flavor of gazpacho with habanero. The menu changes frequently, inspiring Montaña's fans to pack the narrow dining room and sample multiple courses while lingering over boutique wines and tequilas.

Open Mondays through Saturdays 4 to 10 pm. Credit cards not accepted.
