El Minero is located in the old gold and silver mining village of El Triunfo, in the mountains of Baja California Sur, Mexico. Filled with history, this charming village is only an hour drive from La Paz and Todos Santos, and a two-hour drive from Los Cabos. We opened our restaurant doors to the public in the spring of 2015.
Our menus feature a few signature items such as homemade sausages, fresh seafood, paella, artisanal cheeses, homemade condiments and old-fashioned draft root beer floats. We also proudly offer a selection of draft Baja Brewing beers, quality wines, tequilas, mezcals and house cocktails, including two types of margaritas.
Our large outdoor patio courtyard is a relaxing spot in the heart of the village to enjoy a meal and take in the serene views of the surrounding hills. Shaded tables among mesquite trees and other plantings offer a prime vantage point for admiring the 19th century Ramona and Julia Chimneys. In the center of the courtyard, the bronze sculptures of Sofía and Juan Matute (see photo below) bring local history to life and entice a surprising number of visitors to grab a traditional sombrero, climb into Sofía's saddle and have their photos taken.
We look forward to welcoming you to El Minero, and to Museo Ruta de Plata, our historical mining museum that includes a gift shop, a Victorian style tea salon, and a wine bar!
