If you love nature.. You'll love this place! You will be eating with trees, swimming fish, plants, birds, and the smell of wood surrounding you. The staff were super friendly. The food was good as well. I loved the atmosphere.. can be very romantinc.

The patio was nice & the mango margarita was good. Nothing wrong with my chicken & beef quesadillas - they just didn't excite me.

We stayed a week in Rosarito Beach and saved eating at El Nido for our last breakfast meal before departing back to the USA. The inside decor included high ceiling and lots of tropical plants in a large sunlit room. Our breakfast for four had generous portions of pancakes and eggs with a full pitcher of demicious fresh squeezed orange... More

Good Mexican food. The service was excellent and the restaurant was unique. We were seated by the lava rock water fall that has lovely green plants rooted on the rock. Altogether a pleasant experience.

This was a very nice and relaxing place to have dinner. It is more expensive than most other places we at but the food and tortillas are great.

This place is exceptional in it's food, appetizers, and drinks. The patio area is charming and the prices are reasonable. I don't go here as often as it deserves because most times I would rather sacrifice great food for an ocean view, which Nido's does not have.

This is a very popular location for a somewhat formal meal. The food is excellent, waiters speak English, and the staff is extremely attentive to your beck and call. They want to please you and make your dining experience the best possible. Unlike in the States, there is no attitude here, rather a very humble, loving staff. Please let me... More
