It used to be a restaurant that served grass feed meat. No longer a good place to eat meat. I ordered a T-bone and it was hard as bitting an old shoe! Not a place to recomend! Crowded and slow service. Will never go back!

I was visiting Rosarito just for one night and I had read the review of El Nido which sounded good. So I turned up hoping to eat some good Mexican food. I was disappointed by the food which in truth I have had better in the US. I ate Enchiladas which were very ordinary - not the experience of Mexican... More

The food is great the decor is very interesting to see. The BEST part is the tortillas! Made fresh right there over an open fire oven! I advise you to order some after your meal take them to your room and add some butter and sugar heat them up and enjoy as dessert! Heck,heat them up the next day and... More

We are dinner there last night. Food was excellent. Prices were reasonable. The guacamole was not the best that I have ever has. The salsa and the chips were very good. That's it.

Breakfast, lunch or dinner you can never go wrong at El Nido! However I will admit dinner is my favorite time to go. The house thin cut carne asada is a winner. Grilled to perfection every time with the velvety smooth scrumptious guacamole on the side wow! Enjoy your meal with the best homemade flour tortillas and you won't even... More

Walking distance from most hotels. the atmosphere has that inside/outside feel with a great comfortable relaxed feel. The food and service are top notch. Just a fun out of the ordinary place to have dinner and make an evening out of it!

This place is very good and have been several times over the years but it is a bit pricey for what it is. There are plenty of other good stops that aren't so expensive but that being said, its a fun atmosphere and good food.

We've been here many times and always eat there when we're in Rosarito as El Nido combines a uniquely charming atmosphere with lovely service and great food. Their grilled items are superb. It's hard to pass up their steaks but how often do you get the chance to have quail? The walls are decorated with hollowed out organ pipe cactus... More
