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

A tried and true establishment. Quail, Carne Asada and deer are on the menu. Great decor and very nice. Not as cheap as others in the area, but a great experience.

This is a nice restaurant. close to the Rosarito Hotel and great old time ambience; however there is a newer sister restaurant down on the south end called Tampanco's. Their food and atmosphere are much nicer and we have grown to enjoy this place much better. The salmon steak dinner is delicious. Also, they have just opened a new outdoor... More

This place was highly recommended by a dentist in Tijuana....I had the tilapia and shrimp combo platter.. Very good quality, but a very small portion. The tortillas were excellent and the service was very good. My server felt bad about the portion and threw in a free dessert and lots of tortillas to go. If you go fill up on... More

We drank at the bar a couple of times, and the ambience was great. The staff were really friendly, and the snacks at the bar were yummy. For an up market venue, I was disappointed that they only served Sol brewery beer and not Corona products.

Whenever I'm in Rosarito and have the time, I make a point of stopping by El Nido for a little something to eat so I can enjoy homemade tortillas that are cooked on an iron pan over a real fire, and some of the fresh meat delivered from their ranch in Baja Sur. Unique decor and great service make it... More
