Flora Farms

“This was such a fun experience! It’s a farm to table restaurant that is located on a 25 acre property that also has a hotel, spa, cute shops, a grocery store, ice cream stand, a very fun vibe and really good food. We went on a Tuesday night, which is also fried chicken night. The chicken comes with banana creme pie, which my non-allergy daughter got and loved. We ordered a few appetizers for our table that my allergy daughter was able to have all including a really good Caesar salad, focaccia (that was amazing!!), and a burrata cheese and grilled bread—note they do also bring you bread for the table that they freshly bake which was so good—in the end, we had a lot of bread and 1/2 of us were too full for entrees (but not ice cream haha). My allergy daughter ordered a pasta appetizer and a cannoli for her entree that she loved! The food tasted so fresh! Highly recommend!”

Angler’s Landing

“This is a restaurant located right at the airport’s exit, which looks more like a bar, but we were able to get some chips and guacamole while we waited for our ride. It was a little challenging to communicate, but we know the tortillas were corn, and they freshly made the guac and pico—he kept saying no nuts, although I never got the exact oil for the chips. Tasted so good and the perfect entry to Mexico!”

Restaurant at Hotel Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas

“At the breakfast buffet, the manager walked me through to talk about my safe options. During lunch, they made me safe french fries that were nut and dairy free since the fryers had cross-contamination risk. The food is nothing to write home about and nor is the resort, but it’s a good option if you’re in a bind and looking for a party hotel vibe.”

“Menu is labeled with gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian items. I got a vegan kale and fried Brussels sprouts salad with tahini dressing. The food was amazing!”

“This restaurant is located at the Viceroy. It’s Japanese influenced and family style. We ordered several dishes and then shared my daughter’s allergies and our server responded that they would remove any nuts for anything we ordered—when I asked which items had nuts, he said actually none of them. Then we asked if there was anything else on the menu that had nuts since we thought we would likely order more food and he reviewed the menu and said that none of the food contained any nuts but that there was a drink that contained almonds—so nut-free food menu as far as I am concerned! Note that we didn’t see the dessert menu so not sure about that. We ordered from the raw bar a sampler called chirashi-don and edamame, pork dumplings, pork bao, fried rice (it was vegetarian) and beef skewers (not our fave)—we love the fried rice and bao!

The drinks including cocktails and mocktails are very good and fun! It’s STUNNING at night and pro-tip ask for a seat closest to the beach for the best view! Very insta-worthy and literally everyone was taking a ton of photos! Fun!”

“Our server literally turned to me and said ‘tonight I am her mother’. OMG this was an allergy moment for the books!! This is a newer restaurant that came highly recommended BUT truth was we switched around our dinner plans and we realized when we walked in that we had not looked at the menu ahead of time—they did have a few dishes with pistachios, which I might have actually passed because of, but we had one of the most caring servers I can ever recall having—and the food was really spectacular. We shared a green goddess salad and a mezze platter with naan bread. They also brought out a platter of focaccia. My daughter ordered a lamb dish—it was like theater they way it was put together at our table. We shared a deconstructed key lime pie for dessert, which was a special.”

“This was one of our favorite restaurants in San Jose del Cabo. We went on a Thursday night so that we could go to the Art Walk first. We found everything was amazing including the vibe, drinks, appetizers, service, etc. The menu does have some labeling like gluten-free, vegetarian, etc., but not for nuts. We ordered a bunch of appetizers to share including the artichoke salad, eggplant, grilled calamari, kampachi (raw fish) and bread. My daughter got the ghocchetti pasta for her main. All was DELICIOUS! The beet salad had cashews, which was clearly labeled, but the burrata had peanuts which was not labeled on the menu.”

Nicksan Cabo

“Nicksan was one of our favorite restaurants of our Cabo trip! Incredible sushi and wonderful staff. We were told the whole restaurant was completely nut-free! I also alerted the staff of my gluten allergy, and they adapted everything we ordered to make it gluten-free. We loved the spicy tuna cakes (so good!) and rainbow roll, but also had 2 other rolls that they changed to be gluten-free, which were so good! Highly recommend the misoyaki fish—it was one of my favorite dishes of the trip! There are 2 Nicksan locations in Cabo, I highly recommend visiting one if you have food allergies and are traveling to Cabo!”

“This is a restaurant at the Viceroy hotel that is reconcepting to be a taco spot and changing the name to Mercado this week, but they soft launched while we were there and hosted a New Year’s Day brunch and we LOVED it! They had so many stations including pastries and baked goods, and walked my daughter through everything that contained nuts, which was 1 muffin (not sure what kind) and almonds (which she is not allergic to) in an apple caramel cake. BEYOND impressed how knowledgeable they were on the first day they opened when I don’t think it was their regular menu. The vibe was very happy too!”

SUR Beach House

“Incredible sushi and helpful waiters. I recommend the wagyu dumplings and the Lydia roll, which are both dairy and tree nut-free.”

@morganromo who manages a tree nut, milk, sunflower and mustard allergies

Bar Esquina

“Our reservation included their American breakfast—coffee or orange juice plus eggs, potatoes, and your choice of sausage, bacon, or chorizo. I noted my allergies on our reservation and altered our waiter of my food allergies every morning before placing our order. They do have peanut butter as a topping on the acai bowls, which was not labeled on the menu. However, the smoothies and acai bowls are made in a dedicated area of the kitchen that is separate from the stove/oven. I would definitely avoid their smoothies if you have nut allergies, but I felt safe with the American breakfast. If you have allergy questions, I would recommend requesting the manager to ensure you are able to dine safely.”

Las Guacamayas

“Fun touristy spot for AMAZING tacos! Everyone speaks English and staff are very helpful with allergies. I had no problems eating here. It’s definitely more in the touristy area / downtown than other areas near the beach but pretty affordable and really delicious food! I got chicken tacos – I’m almost positive there are no nuts in the kitchen & felt super safe!”

@emsnutfreeeats who manages celiac and peanut and tree nut allergies

Burritos Yolita

“Totally nut-free burrito and taco spot in the Central Cabo area! They also have a ton of breakfast items (fresh fruit and omelets) and a bunch of other options. Staff helped with my allergies but didn’t speak much English. However, I reviewed the menu super carefully and there was nothing with nuts. Loved the omelets here and they also have great options for sandwiches if you’re not gluten-free!”

“A well-loved restaurant by tourists, Edith’s is a great place in downtown Cabo San Lucas for a fun and delicious meal. It’s a cozy spot with gorgeous colorful lights that’s filled with rustic charm and a friendly atmosphere. The menu is a love letter to Mexican cuisine, featuring a tantalizing array of fresh seafood dishes and traditional favorites with lots of allergy-friendly options. The staff at Edith’s are not only friendly but also super knowledgeable about the menu, and they’re more than happy to help you navigate through their impressive selection and cater dishes to your allergies. I felt very taken care of during our meal, and loved the fresh fish taco appetizer and grilled catch of the day. If you’re looking for a meal with a view, definitely book a table on the outdoor terrace. The sights of the water overlooking the shimmering Sea of Cortez are breathtaking. For a delightful and unforgettable dining experience, Edith’s is the place to be in Cabo!”

The Office on the Beach

“Proactive waitstaff, helpful and clearly labeled menu, and limited nuts.”

7 Seas Restaurant

“We had plans for a very fancy dinner the last night and we were all feeling less fancy and close—our original reservation was in Cabo which is about 30 minutes away from San Jose del Cabo, which is where we stayed and I definitely recommend, and we ate really late every night—we were considering room service but rallied! I asked a friend who lives in Cabo for something close to us and a little more casual, so she recommended 7 Seas. The service was fantastic, so kind. We sat on the beach with our feet in the sand, listened to the water and the view was so pretty. It’s was a pretty big menu and I did notice a couple dishes with cashews and one with walnuts. They seemed to fully understand food allergies and because I made the reservation on Open Table, they asked us right when we checked in. We shared appetizers including calamari and burrata and my daughter had grilled shrimp with plantains and rice. They did bring us from the chef a sample of ceviche and a watermelon and basil ice granita palate cleanser—we asked to make sure they were safe and my kids loved, although surprise food isn’t really my thing. Overall food was good (not great), service as very good and sitting on the beach was amazing!”

Cielomar Rooftop

“This is the rooftop bar and restaurant at the Viceroy Hotel. We came just for drinks to watch the sunset before our dinner plans. The view was gorgeous and lots of fun seating areas including a fire pit. They have cocktails and mocktails. I can’t remember the name of the drink that my daughter got but it was beautiful and we checked to make sure it was safe for her. I had the cielomar margarita which was so good. View is great too!”

Birrieria Los Paisas

“Birrieria Los Paisas was by far our favorite local taco shop of the trip! With tasty street tacos, consommé, and delicious quesabirria, this is spot you do not want to miss. While staff do not speak English, after asking a few questions in Spanish, I confirmed they do not use any peanuts or tree nuts in the kitchen. All their tortillas are also made from scratch using masa and are completely gluten-free. We had the pastor and pollo tacos and came back a few days later to try their quesabirria tacos, which were incredible! The fresh masa tortillas are so soft, and the cheesy birria is an absolute must-try! Birrieria Los Paisas is conveniently located right near the main tourist area, so it’s in walking to distance from the Marina and other well-known spots.”

Tres Sirenas

“First restaurant I came to in Cabo—literally walked right here from the airport haha! It was so good! Quite touristy but we were in a tourist area. The menu was very clearly labeled. They did have items with peanuts and tree nuts, but staff were super helpful in making sure everything we ordered was safe from cross-contact. They have good gluten-free options as well. Everything also came with allergy sticks! We weren’t too hungry but had the ceviche trio (so good!) and margs (they have dozens of flavors). Great ambience for a first night in Cabo (live music, everyone is super lively, great energy) and the food was great!”

Acre Resort Restaurant

“We ate at the Acre restaurant at the Acre resort. It was nice because it was NYE but a regular menu. They asked right away if there were any dietary restrictions—by the way, every restaurant in Cabo has asked us without fail, which is so so nice. We ordered a few appetizers for the table including cheddar biscuits, fried Brussels sprouts (had pumpkin seeds but clearly labeled), a beef wagyu taco and soft shell crab taco (the Brussels sprouts were amazing) and my daughter had the shrimp pasta and a fun cocktail (something called bitter and sweet). The only nuts we saw on food items were pistachios (we have seen at most restaurants but haven’t seen cashews really anywhere) and they also had a cocktail with peanut butter! Eek. That said, they were all over it asking about her allergies and ensuring us they would make sure all was safe and even walked through to point out a few appetizers that would not be safe for her. The vibe is definitely fun and it was bustling, probably because it was NYE, and we didn’t feel rushed at all on her allergies but it was busy. Overall, it was pretty expensive and we felt the menu was somewhat limited and the food wasn’t as wildly good as some other places or maybe it didn’t meet the hype as it came highly recommended. We might not have ordered well though!”

Los Tres Gallos

“Super fresh food and helpful waiters who were able to help make sure my food was allergen free.”

@morganromo who manages a tree nut, milk, sunflower and mustard allergies

La Lupita Taco & Mezcal

“This place came highly recommended for great food and super fun atmosphere with a live band—definitely need reservations. The first thing they asked was if anyone had any allergies which was great—I was surprised to see a few items with peanuts at a taco place. It’s VERY LOUD so I felt it was a bit challenging to make sure all was okay—all was safe but it’s fast paced and loud. My daughter safely had guacamole and a cheese dip and 2 tacos. I left before dessert came but we ordered churros which came with chocolate sauce, caramel and ice cream. My daughter and husband checked all (it was canola oil) but when it came the ice cream was sitting on a crumb topping and when they asked what it was, someone came back with a to go container, so she passed on the ice cream. All was safe but definitely a challenging environment to communicate.“

Casero Restaurante

“Ordered chips and guac by the pool. So so good but note it comes with a side of cheese for anyone with a dairy allergy. Also had breakfast here and my daughter had the avocado toast that came with a poached egg one day, and French toast, iced coffee and juice on another. The server was so kind and said he would personally make sure all was safe. We had lunch here too! My daughter ordered the shrimp tacos and started to ask about oil and they stopped her and said all of her food would be made in a separate area with their own pans and would be kept away from all other food. We didn’t see any tree nuts on the menu but did see something with tiger milk and peanut in the name but hard to figure out what it was?! Either way, they were so nice and helpful! Also a fun lounge area with games!”

El Wine Shop at Flora Farms

“We stopped at this shop when we went to dinner at Flora Farms (see my review!) and they sell wine by the glass that you can drink while waiting for your table. My daughter got an iced latte and the whole place is nut free. The only cocktail they have is an espresso martini made with tequila and I had one and it was TASTY!”

Jazz on the Rocks

“Located in The Cape, Jazz on the Rocks is the sister restaurant to one of the most famous restaurants in Cabo, Sunset Monalisa. We enjoyed dinner here on our last night in Cabo and loved the peaceful ambience and gorgeous views. Sunset Monalisa and all the other restaurants in The Cape are well-known for their phenomenal accommodations for guests with food allergies. All waitstaff ask if any guests have food allergies before walking through the menu. They do have a few dishes with nuts, but I felt extremely well taken care of. We enjoyed a delicious caesar salad (make sure to ask for no bread if you are gluten-free) and one of their gluten-free pizzas. Occasionally, they do not have gluten-free pizza dough in stock, so make sure to check with the waitstaff if you want to try their gluten-free pizzas. We liked the food but both felt like we had better meals elsewhere on the trip. However, it was great to find a safe spot, and the views were unbeatable! One tip: if you want to dine outside, I would recommend making a reservation on OpenTable at least three weeks in advance.”

Hacienda Cocina y Cantina

“Hacienda Cocina y Cantina is the world-famous restaurant located inside the Hacienda Beach Club & Residences. With an extensive menu featuring fresh appetizers, a variety of seafood, and delicious entrees, this was one of our favorite dinners of the week. The restaurant and bar is completely outdoors, so you can enjoy your meal with a beautiful view of the beach. Staff are extremely attentive to guests with allergies. Our waiter asked at the beginning of the meal if anyone at the table had food allergies and guided us through ordering safe options. We tried the chips and salsa, organic salad with cilantro dressing, pulpo san carlos (a delicious octopus and veggie appetizer), and the filet mignon. Everything was cooked to perfection and tasted amazing. They also have a gorgeous bar with fantastic drinks! This spot should definitely be on your list if you want an allergy safe meal in Cabo! A bit upscale, but so nice!”
