I've been to Rosarito several times over the years and don't know how I've never dined here before. Quite possibly the best restaurant in the Rosarito Beach area. $20 gets a Filet Minon that's huge with all the trimmings plus bean soup (delicious) and salad. Cooked to perfection over mesquite and the smell permeates the establishment. My fellow diners had... More

I love this place for breakfast. I've eaten breakfast here many times over the years. Sitting inside feels very much like being outdoors. It has a very rustic look with plants, waterfalls and two fire places that give the place a slight smoky smell. The place is know for its exotic meats. I always order the venison Machaca and poached... More

The restaurant is large and has several different areas. Even though it is a steak place, the grilled fish was excellent. My husband got the wrong food and the situation was corrected without a problem, once we actually got someone to pay attention. Our waiter was hardly ever there and the place wasn't all,that busy. If the service had been... More

I've been there for dinner before and the food was amazing as well as the decoration and the several rooms the restaurant has. Our last visit was more like at brunch time, which was great. My bf ordered the surf and turf, ribeye with shrimp and I order some veggie omelette. Fresh hand made flour tortillas. Must visit.

El Nido's is a great place to visit. First of all the interior decorations are very unusual and make you feel like you are back in the western days with the decorative wood walls, the great smelling mesquite barbeque grills, and the many antique and historical western artifacts around the restaurant and bar. Great Food and a wide variety of... More

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
