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

This restaurant in the heart of downtown Rosarito has an indoor atmosphere of a small oasis with trees and high ceilings aplenty ! We ate breakfast with a pitcher of fresh squeezed orange juice, fresh Mexican coffee, tons of pancakes, eggs and bacon with fresh homemade tortillas. The four of us ate for under $40. This is one of the... More

We asked our front desk staff where we could walk to eat dinner (we stayed at Rosarito Beach Hotel). She recommended one near the entrance to the hotel or El Nido. We walked to the one by the entrance to the hotel around dinnertime but it was closed. And I am SO glad it was because otherwise we might not... More
