Family Feasts: 10 Best Kid-Friendly Restaurants in Los Cabos

Los Cabos has a wealth of dining choices for adventurous families–many area restaurants showcase a wide array of seafood dishes, and some feature eclectic international fusion cuisines–but there are also plenty of local restaurants that offer dedicated kids menus and simple fare like burgers and chicken fingers, not to mention Mexican comfort food favorites such as quesadillas and tacos.
