Welcoming & 'homey' experience

I was welcomed by the lovely and sweet owner, she made me feel right at home. A look at their restaurant and outdoor patio made me want to stay longer. Great person, great service. I am sure I will return.

Food not anything great in my opinion. We got quesadillas and burrito; both of which consisted of too much cheese, some rice/beans, but VERY LITTLE fresh vegetable. Felt more like mexican fast food. Meat may be ok (did not get so not sure) but we were not impressed with vegetarian options. Outdoor upstairs ambience was nice. Salsa and chips were... More

Rolson's Restaruant is an upstairs outdoor/indoor dinning restaurant. The outdoor dinning is the best. Great lighting with a great view of the San Ignacio Town and surrounding town/villages view from the restaurants Upstairs view. The food is tasty with both a local and an international flavor to its menu... I would consider this restaurant more of a fine dinning place... More

This restaurant has great foods and a great selection of bar drinks. The owners visit each table to ensure that the customers are happy. The servers were friendly and helpful.

We ate here twice during our visit to San Ignacio. The food was very good, the staff friendly, the restaurant was clean and well appointed , and the location on overlooking San Ignacio was appealing. They have a diverse menu and with 3 of us traveling together we were able to sample several different dishes on the two visits, and... More

I choose to take a break and unwind from the hectic life. My favorite place to do this in Rolson, I love sitting in the verandah, sipping on a cold beer and order a few tacos of carne asada the onions are great. What more could you ask life for, the view and the breeze is priceless. If you are... More

We have now visited Rolson's three times in the last year...and only one time was the food above average. The Jalapeño Poppers are probably the best thing on their menu and certainly the best we've had in town. The view is definitely one of the nicer views in town. However, we have yet to enjoy any one of the "Mexican"... More

Visiting Rolson's Cocina Cantina in San Ignacio is a must-do for a lovely dinner experience overlooking a scenic San Ignacio as well as enjoying a margarita or perhaps some tacos or other Mexican cuisine. The proprietors are very friendly and will gladly share tips of additional must-see in the area.

Rolston's was one of our favorite places to get Mexican food. We loved the view as you ate the meal and looked out over the city. The service was excellent, the service was great and the food was worth the trip. The owner was almost always there and treated us very special. Several times we ran across the mayor of... More
