We went on June 24th the day after Mexico won the game it was very busy and they only had 2 waitstaff on duty due to employees calling in sick. These two did an amazing job!!!! They were professional and personable! I wish I could have them in my own restaurant in the states. Great job!!!!!

Nice atmosphere. Slow disorganized service but if not in a rush you'll be fine. Nice quiet evening in the town? this is the spot.

We have eaten here numerous times and the food is exceptional. The ambiance is wonderful EXCEPT when the gentleman is playing the guitar and singing. He is much too loud for the space and his singing and guitar playing make it impossible to have a conversation and ruins the wonderful atmosphere. I would highly recommend this restaraunt except on the... More

Most of the food here is really good, very dependable options from them and when I was living in Rosarito for a while I was very happy they had rotating specials to keep things fresh at this restaurant. Staff was very cordial.

Talking about saving a date, with our horrible experience at the other restaurant (which did not honor our reservations made 1 MONTH IN ADVANCE and even confirmed), from which we easily looked up in our phone, well we called and reserved us a table. Our Feb. 14th date was somewhat saved and when we got there ahhh the atmosphere was... More

Enjoyed a table by the window for a romantic dinner. Waiter was very friendly and helpful. Menu is affordable and varied. Both the potato crusted fish and filet mignon were very good, and enjoyed the bottle of wine we ordered. Two main courses, one salad, one bottle of wine, and tip came to $50 USD. There was a note outside... More

Our pleasant waiter was from Oregon! That was a nice surprise! We were there early---I think the room would be very cozy after dark with the candles and the music. The wines on the list are all by L.A. Cetto---clearly they must have "subsidized" the list. Even the umbrellas outside were emblazoned with the name "L,A. Cetto". However, there are... More

The owner is french, of course, and had a restuarant in Mexico City before moving to Rosarito, where he's been for at least 10 years. So the food has a very continental flare but takes advantage of the local catch of the day and the very good wines of the region (there are 54 vineyards southeast of Rosarito in Valle... More
