This restaurant seemed to be amazing from the outside. Awesome decor, looked busy, and very unique. My family and I went in after a long day, we were celebrating my sisters birthday and were looking to sit down and have a great meal here at El Nido. I knew the dinner would be terrible once our beverages arrived. Very small... More

Their breakfast is great, I have been eating at this resturant for almost 20 years. Their set up is beautiful and relaxing and the staff is very friendly. The flour tortillas are made by hand and the coffee is great.

This place is just so unique. I love all of the rustic brick and wood and romantic lights all over the walls. We sat in the front room closest to the street by the fireplace. Perfect. Had the quail appetizer. Such a tasty little bird (Tried not to think about seeing them running around in our neighborhood in Arizona!). My... More

The food was good portions to small. Really like the atmosphere here. Great bar and drinks. Would go back to give it another try only because of atmosphere and location downtown.

Great Americanized Mexican restaurant on the west side of the street North of the Rosarito Beach Hotel. Very good food, steaks cooked over mesquite wood and probably one of the best Margarita's in Mexico. lots to eat and the thick home made type chips served up free with there homemade salsa. Have to try this place and course the Rosarito... More

This place is the Mexican/Western version of the Rainforest Cafe. It is beautiful inside, the best hand-made flour tortillas I've ever had, and they're great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Impossible to miss since it's on the main street, and it's definitely worth at least one meal! (Add the shrimp to the steak meal - it's totally worth it!)

Great environment. Great mexican combination dish that fills you up. Also if your an American living in Rosarito and miss a good steak they have incredible steak on par with any place in the states. Ive been here at least 10 times. Its always good. If they are busy its slower service but that's normal almost anywhere.

Great value, great atmosphere, good service, convenient and good food. You'll like it! I had sea bass, she had filet mignon. Both nicely done with cocktails. $40, what a deal.
