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.

My wife and I visited the El Nido Mexican restaurant in Rosarito Mexico last weekend. This is our 3rd time to the restaurant, and every time we go there we see something different. The inside Antique architecture of the restaurant is so unique, that you feel as if you are in a different world. Their outdoor Patio area makes you... More
