My husband & I have returned a few times to El Viejo during our visit to Los Barriles... Excellent service (the lovely woman taking care of us was patient and helpful with my broken Spanish) & the salsa bar offered a variety of fresh toppings.. Wonderful!! We will definitely be visiting El Viejo next time we are here in Los... More

Breakfast at El Viejo is great. There's a broad choice of breakfast dishes, all fresh and tasty, even pancakes! I love going there for revueltos machaca and then loading it up at the salsa bar, especially the poblanos con crema. Simply delicious.

fish and shrimp did not seem very fresh but the condiments are really good. Hamburger was very average better to go to Barking Dog Corner hot dog stand or El Japonese in Buena VIsta for hamburguesas

Asked a local for a recommendation for the best tacos in town and without hesitation he said "El Viejo". We had the fried fish tacos. Lots of fish, lightly battered, not greasy, with a great condiment bar. The also had grilled fish. Will try it next time. The restaurant was very clean and attractive. Great food, service, and atmosphere...

Fun casual, good breakfast, great value, just don't go if you are in a rush, they will take their time to bring you the food. Try the shrimp tacos are a great option.

We spend the winters and spring in LB and try to go to El Viejo at least once a week. We've had visitors who insist on going for lunch every day. El Viejo was originally open for dinner. Terrific ribs. Wish they would reconsider and serve dinner. Breakfasts are great--egg dishes and pancakes. Know best for fish tacos--the fried clam... More

8 of us (4 adults / 4 kids) ate lunch here. Whether it was chicken, seafood or the various tacos, all of the meals were fantastic. The service was also top notch. Overall, a very friendly restaurant with food that is as authentic as one could hope. Do not go to Los Barriles and not eat here.

El Viejo is the best restaurant in Los Barriles. The fish tacos are the best ever and their omelettes and chile rellenos are fantastic!!
