Yumana Kitchen aims to offer a new scope when it comes to “mindful”and “comfort” food by embracing the cultural notions of the millenary indigenous group: The Yumanos.
Located at the main Plaza of San Jose del Cabo and just ten minutes from Puerto Los Cabos, Yumana’s whole restaurant concept rescues the cultural tradition of this ethnic group and gives it a contemporary and modern approach.
The Yumanos resided all throughout the Californias with one of their most important aspects being their ability to adapt by subtracting elements from different backgrounds; this is the core of our kitchen. We believe food can satisfy both as body and soul, that is why we look for local farmers and producers to bring the highest quality in every dish.
Our kitchen is meant to be for everyone, so it is designed to provide options for a diverse community. Whether you are a seafood or meat lover, more plant based, or you just fancy a drink.
Been wanting to try this new place in SJD for awhile. This trip we made it our first stop from the airport. Miguel met us and was our waiter for the evening. He was courteous, prompt and spot-on in his recommendations. We split the cauliflower appetizer, each had an amazing taco and split the tuna entrée. All of it was terrific! We were so impressed we are headed back for lunch later this week.
Amazing food, drinks, design, and ambience. Service needs some work: we were made to feel rushed to order food and drinks, despite being only one of three tables the entire night. Then when we went to pay, it took forever to get the cheque, like they didn’t want us to leave...
We dined recently at Yumana, twice in the past week because we enjoyed it that much! The first evening was during Art Walk and we enjoyed a warm greeting and excellent table service from our waiter, Miguel, and savoured a series of tasty delights. Emphasis is on fresh, quality ingredients. If the fisherman's catch isn't up to chef's requirements, it's off the menu for that day. Personally, I appreciate that. As the evening went on, we relaxed with a coffee and enjoyed the live music -- a talented duo with an engaging presentation of modern favourites with a soft Latin current.
Our second visit was the highlight of our trip to San Jose del Cabo. As another reviewer mentioned, Yumana is an oasis from the rather touristy central plaza. Again, we were warmly greeted and had great service from Miguel. The menu items we selected this time were just as delicious, beautifully presented and just the right amount. The corn soup is a must-try! At the table next to us, I could see owner, Raul, speaking with a local baker who had arrived to present dessert options for the coming summer menu. My eye went immediately to the carrot cake! It looked fabulous. To my delight, after our dinner, Raul arranged for a piece of the cake to be delivered to our table. Honestly, I've never tasted such a wonderful carrot cake. It was moist, nutty, cinnamon and nutmeg in perfect measure, and topped with a whipped, not too sweet, creamy cheese icing. I know I won't be able to match this cake at home, but I'm going to try, and try!
If you're looking for a wonderful restaurant in central San Jose del Cabo ... this is the place! Enjoy!
Fabulous find in San Jose! Interesting menu with lots of flavor! The experience was unexpectedly delightful! I would highly recommend trying the lovely restaurant!
Thank you very much for sending your review :) We hope to see you again very soon so you can try more of our menu.
From not properly checking us in acknowledging our Open Table reservation does that I got a notification we had “stood up” the restaurant, to no service ( menus water etc. ) for first 20 minutes, no order taken for another 20 minutes, too many waiters- one asked if we were ready for dessert before we ever got our entrees, they forgot one of the orders etc. to another 15 minutes messing with the check.
That being said, the food itself was excellent. Unfortunately, the overall experience in my third visit there was disappointing...
We're very sorry you had to experience this situation. We won't let it happen again and, next time you're in town, please let us know!
After doing Ning for lunch, I invited my husband’s business partners to have dinner with us. The food was superb, the ambiance is perfect for any occasion and the service was delightful. Don’t miss this restaurant.
A great addition to San Jose del Cabo. Make sure you try the cocktails. Ahi tuna tostada is outstanding, as are the shrimp tacos. Black corn tortillas are made by hand daily.
Unusually cool weather, would have liked heat lamps!
Great food and ambiance. We enjoyed the evening. Highly recommend. The corn bread desert was amazing.
Great menu, great food. A wonderful dining experience.
Exceptional service and attention from manager Miguel and bartender Eric.
We had a great time with excellent service. Prices medium to high and we weren’t impressed with the margarita served in a bell pepper, but they switched out to glasses when we made the request. The food was delicious, fresh and inventive and the interior design sleek and contemporary.
Fabulous and fresh food with plenty of flavorful choices. Excellent service and presentation. Particularly excellent choices for healthy eating, vegetarians and vegans. Located right in the center of town on the main plaza. Beautiful private patio seating in the restaurant and a few tables right on the plaza perfect for dining and people watching. So good we went back twice in a week!
The atmosphere was really nice, the Design of the restaurant very refreshing. It is a nice additional for dining in downtown San José!
Creative delightful new restaurant
All great except I only drink plain water and because I only drink plain water I asked to for plain water from the house same thing I do everywhere I go and their water tasted like it came from the street, terrible! I have never had such bad water served to me from any restaurant, not sure what water filtration they have but I dont think they had any. The food was awesome, the Tortillas they served us did not feel like they where hand made, I eat them all of the time at home and those felt machine made for sure and they where not even the good ones from the ones we sometimes buy that are made from machines. The place is awesome and its located very well in the middle of downtown.

Not just one of the best meals ever had in Cabo but one of the best anywhere PERIOD! Delicious food. Wonderful service. A must stop when town.
Cocktails are excellent, great mixologist! Food was excellent!
Very nice restaurant. Great staff, great food, and great drinks too. Try the pasta and fish.
We loved the simple, but elegant atmosphere and decor, the service was wondering, and their food and cocktails were amazing! Everything is so fresh! The tostadas are a must!!
