Cardon Restaurant Location

If you’re thinking of booking a table at this acclaimed venue, it’s situated within the Costa Baja Complex, now known as Puerta Cortés, just a 20-minute drive from La Paz’s downtown.

The best dining in La Paz

Cardón Restaurant was created with one goal in mind: to compete in Los Cabos’ upscale dining scene. This emerging area of La Paz has much to offer, and this restaurant is certainly the first major endeavor—highly appreciated, indeed!

But, beyond the exquisite menu and wine selection, the breathtaking views, modern (yet warm) Baja-style architecture, and impeccable service are all the necessary elements merging to set the stage for a special occasion.

The menu

The food selection at Cardon is exceptional, with a focus on seasonal ingredients for freshness and originality. Its signature cuisine has dishes crafted to delight all the senses, blending aromas, textures, and pairings inspired by home cooking flavors with a touch of avant-garde found in luxury dining.

Another noteworthy aspect is the special attention paid to their breakfast menu, which typically doesn’t take the spotlight in most luxury restaurants. Here, breakfast has its own Mexican stamp, featuring a variety reminiscent of local dishes: chilaquiles, quesadillas, and eggs prepared in different styles.

Visiting this restaurant is undoubtedly reserved for memorable celebrations.

The wine selection

For wine lovers like us, there’s plenty to choose from. Primarily wines from Mexico, but there is a very good selection of foreign wines from the USA, France, Argentina, and Spain, to name a few. Whether you’re in the mood for a bold red or a crisp white, they’ve got you covered.

Some of our favorite wine brands available at Cardon Restaurant include Casa Madero (México), Heitz Cellar (USA), Grahams (Portugal), and Pingus (España).
