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

This was the absolute worst food I have ever eaten. It was my husband and mine 30th wedding anniversary and we love Mexican food so we thought we would try this restaurant, so sorry we did. I had Tequila Shrimp. The shrimp were about the size of a quarter and tasted like they were frozen. The "salad" that came with... More

On a quick overnight trip to San Ignacio, our friend took us to this little gem. Family owned & operated and clearly passionate about their food and the customer experience. The jalapeno poppers were incredible - like nothing I've ever tasted. The patio was a great spot to dine and visit and we even got a cool breeze that night!... More

Took clients here for lunch yesterday, and loved the guacamole ! Their shrimp ceviche is my favorite ! These folks have trained their staff to provide high quality of service, and their kitchen is spotless ! The food is very good, and do not miss their homemade stuffed jalapeño poppers !!! WOW !

This was such a nice treat! I wouldn't call it authentic Mexican food, but it really was delicious. The outdoor seating on the patio was so delightful and proved a perfect setting. The staff was great and attentive and catered to the many needs of our large group. I was so excited to see guacamole for the first time the... More
