I have only been here for breakfast. I always enjoy the Mexican style breakfast with home made flower tortillas. The coffee is good. Portions are not very large but sufficient, especially if you have some of those flower tortillas. Service was prompt. The server offered to show us a small chapel... read more

Although the service was exceptional and the location was beautifully decorated, the food was not great and somewhat over priced. I liked the scenery of the restaurant and appreciated the staff that was very prompt at all times. But, Menu needs a lot of improving.

Sat on the back patio. Very lush, lots of tropical plants, water and fountains with turtles swimming in it. There were also mariachis playing. We were able to get a table for all 17 of us but did make a reservation first. The food was very good except for the stale tortilla chips. We had to send them back and... More

It was a fairly good meal! The margaritas were really good. The service was just ok but that didn't both us. The prices were very much tourist prices. While the ambiance was neat, I won't be returning on my next visit to Rosarito

Went first to eat there, mmmm what a grilled fish I had, good wine, there where a couple of Mariachi singing and playing, the only thing maybe the service was a bit unkind. We came back the night after to the bar, excellent Margaritas, try the mango one, fabulous, but again the staff was not very kind, but after all... More

I've been coming to Rosarito for years as a tourist and pretty much stuck to pursuing the Puerto Neuvo style lobster but my daughter recently moved to the area so I'm venturing out and enjoying this area from the resident perspective. Went to El Nido because I wanted a steak and I was blown away by the total experience. Love... More

A must go when in Rosarito. Just north of the Rosarito Beach Hotel. Great ambiance and great food. Just a good place to hang out. Their steaks & quail are the best, all else probably right up there. There rustic natural ambiance makes you feel that you are in a very special place. Comfortable whether it's a romantic interlude, family,... More

First visit the Bar and Ask for an Margarita, its authentic with no sweet and sour, Sergio will hook you up! Next go with something different from the kitchen, maybe the appetizer Quail prepared in Garlic Butter, or maybe the Venison, or on the weekends the hole lamb roasted on the fire pit. All in a slice of unexpected paradise!... More
