The More the Merrier: 10 Best Group-Friendly Restaurants in Los Cabos

Whether the occasion is family dinners, wedding receptions or other special events, Los Cabos has plenty of restaurants capable of handling large groups. Because of the size and service requirements for large-scale celebrations, however, the top options are generally found at area luxury hotels, at spacious eateries operated by prominent local restaurateurs like Tadd Chapman and Edith Jiménez, or restaurant groups such as Mi Casa.

Chapman has opened several superb restaurants in San José del Cabo, but the Canadian born restaurateur's greatest local achievement is undoubtedly Don Sanchez. It's the top venue in Los Cabos for large-scale celebrations, with first-class food and wine (including advice from the onsite sommelier, and take-out wine sales), and the capacity to host up to 350 guests for dinner and dancing.

Jiménez's namesake restaurant, Edith's, has long been a fine dining fixture in Cabo San Lucas, and continues to offer excellent upscale Mexican dining, with multi course options available from nine separate group menus. The Office, an affiliated eatery on Médano Beach, is another great gathering place, perfect for groups seeking fresh local seafood and gorgeous Land's End views.

The Mi Casa Group has five restaurants in Los Cabos, the best of which, from a group dining standpoint, are its signature eateries in each of the cape cities. Mi Casa in Cabo San Lucas is conveniently located across from the town square, Plaza Amelia Wilkes, and can accommodate up to 500 guests for traditional Mexican atmosphere and cuisine. Mi Casa in San José del Cabo, meanwhile, can handle groups as large as 350 people at its airy courtyard location in the heart of the city’s historic Art District.
