This is the worst food I have had in my life!!! Queso fundido not even melted... Hard as a rock! Worst service ever! Even my baked potato was rock solid. Your better off going to a taco stand...there will be the same amount of flies as there are at El Nido!

This would be my second time there. I went in June and returned in August for my wedding anniversary, if that says something in itself. Great food. We had the squid and carne asada, thin cut. The tortillas are enough to go for, no questions asked. The ambiance is lovely--little sparrows flying around in the waterfalls to the side. The... More

We had dinner at El Nido, hubby got the quail, I got the rabbit and my friend got fish tacos. The quail was excellent. The rabbit was over cooked, but I would rather have that then under cooked. The fish tacos were average. The tortillas were the best part of the meal, next to the tasty margaritas and boy were... More

the decor and ambiance are very cool indoor jungle. The is a large floor to ceiling bird sanctuary in the restaurant.. this would not pass any health code in the USA. trust me. But cool none the less and you can request to sit by the waterfall instead of the birds or in the large back area. Service and food... More

If you love nature.. You'll love this place! You will be eating with trees, swimming fish, plants, birds, and the smell of wood surrounding you. The staff were super friendly. The food was good as well. I loved the atmosphere.. can be very romantinc.

The patio was nice & the mango margarita was good. Nothing wrong with my chicken & beef quesadillas - they just didn't excite me.

We stayed a week in Rosarito Beach and saved eating at El Nido for our last breakfast meal before departing back to the USA. The inside decor included high ceiling and lots of tropical plants in a large sunlit room. Our breakfast for four had generous portions of pancakes and eggs with a full pitcher of demicious fresh squeezed orange... More
