Puerto Nuevo USED to be awesome! Now, like anything else it got hyped and so did the prices right along with it. The lobster is still good, along with the rest of the food and drinks, but this place was known for CHEAP juicy lobster! No way Jose. Not anymore. BUT, it is still cheaper than any place you'll get... More

Due to political and safety issues, we have stopped going into Mexico. A week ago, we bit the bullet and visited Puerto Nuevo for the first time in six years. We felt safe, but he biggest surprise is that after all these years, Puerto Nuevo #1 is the exact same as it was all those years ago. We all had... More

YUMMY!!! A long time favorite for many regulars servers who tend to remember former guest and their presences. A place you will want to remember and probably will remember you. Be smart and TIP to American high-end standards.

You will almost always be asked if you want your lobster Puerto Nuevo style. If you answer "yes" your lobster will be deep fried. While this is acceptable in Mexico, one never knows how old the oil is that is used for the deep frying. At this restaurant, we accepted an invitation from friends for dinner and, of course, ate...

Went on a day trip with the husband and some friends and we ended up in Puerto Nuevo. Drove around the entire complex only to find parking back in front of this restaurant. The long line made me think it had to be the place to eat. Talking to some of the folks in line they said it was worth... More

Puerto Neuvo is a must stop every time we visit Rosarito Beach. The prices are great, food is equally great and the location is nothing short of great. We love sitting out on the patio and just enjoying the view. The service is always good here, just sit back order and enjoy some lobster and beer. We have been coming... More
