Edith's is a dependable choice for excellent, if pricey, meals in a gorgeous setting. Candles, hanging lights, and flickering flames from flambéed coffees illuminate happy faces in the jam-packed dining area. Tables are covered with vibrant red, yellow, and orange cloths, bright orange and turquoise walls sport paintings of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, and thick bushes and trees surround the enormous palapa-covered dining area. Waiters bustle about the upbeat crowd efficiently but demonstrate great patience with diners wary of Mexican dishes. 


The food can’t be faulted. Beyond-generous platters of Mexican favorites like carne tampiqueña, grilled chicken with chili relleno, and enchiladas are big enough for two, especially if you want to save room for the chocolate fountain, a melt-in-the-middle cake with vanilla ice cream. Splurge meals abound, from grilled lobster to rack of lamb or filet mignon. A hefty wine list has a few easy-on-the-wallet choices, and drinks are generously poured. Owner Edith Jimenez is one of Cabo's most successful restaurateurs and has a hand in The Office, a popular Playa Médano hangout, and Cervecería Ramuri. Reservations are a must, and if you want a water view, book an early meal.
