We recently visited this restaurant and was more than pleasantly surprised with their breakfast offerings. A must try is the "cafe el potrero" it is delicious and you don't even need sugar because of the perfect balance in flavors. We tried several dishes and all were yummy! I had the chilorio ( shredded pork with spices and onions/peppers) accompanied with... More

The Family and I have been coming here for years! Great, quiet, restaurant that has delicious food. The dinners are good, but for me, the appeal is the breakfast menu. I usually order the steak and eggs and its not only deliciously filling, its inexpensive! The atmosphere and mood are dark and cozy- Try the "café de la holla". Its... More

I really loved this place! We were actually just passing by, and it seemed interesting. We decided to give it a try and it was a great experience! We manager received us at the door, and made a few jokes, made us feel welcomed, and the food was amazing, the meat was very tender! It was a great experience and... More

When my friends come to visit, we always take them here. We have never been disappointed. My wife loves the Nopalas salad and I love the steaks. My friends love Mexican food and they really like the flavors here. We eat here about once per month. Highly recommend.

Ate here on Saturday night and the food and service were both fantastic. I had the camarones costa azul which is shrimp wrapped in bacon and were delicious. They bring nice toasted corn tortillas, chili and a beef dish before they bring your food. It was all beyond tastey and the server along with the manager provided great service. The... More

I went there twice. Each time I asked for suggestions, the second time the guy ordered wayyyyyyy too much food for me probably to just generate business for the restaurant which was pretty scammy. I didn't even finish 30% of what he had ordered at his discretion and I wasn't eating too little or anything. Food seems likes its old,... More

The breakfasts are some of the best in Tijuana their red/green chiliquiles, beans and potatoes are excellent as of course are the many breakfast main courses they are served with. They may have ostrich egg omelette if you ask. For lunch or dinner the grilled selections are popular. I really like the ostrich fajitas especially with an Indio beer. Another... More
