La Palapa at Esperanza Resort

“A casual restaurant at the resort that is right next to one of the pools. We had lunch here often and it was delicious. The fajitas and the guac and chips were my favorites here (and they don’t skimp out on the food)! Staff was very knowledgeable on gluten-free menu items and ensure my food was prepared safely. They do ‘themed’ nights here as well that is buffet style. There were plenty of gluten-free options and staff serving the buffet food was knowledgeable or were able to get a manager when I had questions.”

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!”

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!”

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.”

Cocina Del Mar

“The most beautiful restaurant at the resort right on the water. You hear the waves crashing as you eat and it is just truly a great dining experience. We are here for breakfast every morning (which was included in our stay). The breakfast spread is UNREAL with so many options. You also have the choice to choose any menu item. By the second day the staff remembered me and had gluten-free bread ready each morning. The dinner here is delectable. Many seafood options that were safe for me. Very fresh food. They brought out ice pops for us to celebrate our honey moon on our first night which was very sweet.”

Terraza Americana

“A quick, laid back restaurant at Esperanza that serves hearty salads, tacos, and sandwiches. The salads are delicious and refreshing. I really love the sirloin tacos!”

“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 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!”

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 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 and felt super safe!”

Burritos Yolita

“Totally nut-free burrito and taco spot in the Central Cabo area! They also have a ton of breakfast items (fresh fruit + 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!”

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 Estrellas

“This restaurant is on the side of the resort where the owners of the villas reside but is easily accessible by staff-driven golf carts. We dined here for lunch one day and shared a gluten-free pizza that was delicious. it was prepared on its own pan. We also dined here for dinner one night and enjoyed a meal that was more ‘American’ style. I had a gluten-free pasta dish that was excellent.”

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 was 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!”
