The atmosphere is delightful and we sat nearby a waterfall inside the restaurant. The food is delicious.

Being unfamiliar with Rosarito restaurants, we stopped at El Nido to eat because it looked look a nice place from the outside. The inside is just lovely. We enjoyed the ambiance and especially the great service. The food was pretty good. Portions were just right to leave feeling full and stuffed with Mexican food. Fresh homemade chips and fabulous salsa... More

Used Yelp and Trip Advisor to find a restaurant near the Rosarito Beach Hotel where we are staying. Its a very short walk from the resort. What great atmosphere! We ate in the back garden with waterfalls and plants everywhere. Very funky but romantic with all the candles and sound of the waterfalls - i could see the moon thru... More

Always a good experience and good food. The carne asada is very good, just ask for one less level of wellness you would normally request. The atmosphere is great and the service is excellent

Service is terrible, I visited this place on a Sunday. I came with my wife, daughter and son. My daughter being the youngest ordered a kids plate, and the rest of us got the prime rib. A plate of beans for the adults and nothing for my little girl, salad for the adults and nothing for my little girl, main... More

Another old Baja saying goes, “Where there are gringos, there’ll be an El Nido.” Opened in 1971, the Rosarito Beach location is the original and still the best. Much of the restaurant’s produce, fowl and game meats come from its farms just east of town in the foothills. One is Rancho Guacatay, which raises much of their free-range venison. El... More

The service is absolutely perfect and the atmosphere is so charming one does not want to leave. All meals are delivered to your table hot and perfectly cooked even though we are seated in an outside patio. Delightful and a trip back in time to the old world

Dirty, poor service, fair food at best? It use to be a favorite but has gone down a lot. Not worth it. September 2013 fair, April 2014 poor, September 2014 we just skipped it. Too many other places that have good food and service.
