Fabulous Brick Oven Pizza and Fresh Seafood in Todos Santos
What? Did you think you couldn’t get outstanding brick oven pizza and fresh seafood in the same restaurant? Think again. With lush, evocative outdoor seating, the atmosphere at Desertu is really the definition of Baja dining. Under the new ownership of one of Mexico’s top Chefs, the menu now offers some of the most delicious and imaginative dishes in town, never neglecting what they became famous for, gourmet brick oven pizzas. If you are in for a real treat, however, Jose (the owner and chef) is world renowned for the way he prepares local fish and seafood dishes.
The owners, a husband and wife team, have moved to Todos Santos, from Mexico City to escape the stress and headaches of running 5 large restaurants -including one of Mexico’s top 20 restaurants. The relaxed and creative life-style of Todos Santos is the ideal place to take a restaurant like Desertu (which has gone from hand to hand over the last few years, and was at time neglected) to the next level: a top notch spot for great food, great ambiance, and true Todos Santos hospitality. Those familiar with Jose’s work are flocking to the restaurant to meet the master in a low-key, low stress, setting. Who knows, maybe the R&R will inspire Jose and Carmen to new heights in Mediterranean cuisine.
