The Office on the Beach: a one-of-a-kind restaurant you must visit on your next trip to Cabo


The restaurant theme is office-based, with the boards suggesting that this is the only restaurant one should visit during a vacation. The hotel is famous for its seafood with octopus and fish burritos among the people’s favorites. This is a must-visit during a trip to Los Cabos.

On the Virgin Beach this palapa with its small kitchen and unpretentious bar, tended to the needs of locals and the few tourists we then had, offering simple fare such as ceviche, fried fish, burritos or hamburgers and the always-wanted margaritas, Cuba libres and beers besides the traditional water or coffee.

A local character, a gringo viejo —as the writer Carlos Fuentes would say— rented windsurf equipment on the beach and entertained his clients and friends in this same palapa, which was referred to by him and others as “the office”. The name stuck, and shortly after a blue sign with yellow lettering popped up identifying the place officially as an office… The Office on the Beach.
