Convenient and cozy

Wait staff were great. We opted to eat inside. Nachos were huge and delicious. Disappointing they did not serve hard liquor margaritas...only had "wine" margaritas. The flour chips mixed in with the regular corn tortilla chips were great.

We went there for lunch and indeed the food is excellent. Portions are almost enough for two but you must add 3$ for an extra plate if you want to share. However it may be the case only for lunch whee dishes are cheaper than fog dinner.

Went there on Friday night at 6PM and had no trouble getting an inside table. The outside tables were a little busier but most of the inside tables were available. My wife ordered the crab enchiladas and loved them. They came with lots of crab meat and a yummy red sauce. Her order was mistakenly served with re-fried beans instead... More

Margaritas are made with wine instead of tequila. The outdoor seating at the Columbia, CA is very nice.

Driving through Columbia Ca., You'll find the El Jardin on the right hand side of the road driving through town going south. It only has on street parking and no handy cap access. The walk way to the front door is pretty chopped up for people in wheel chairs. We heard the food was good. We decided to try breakfast.... More

We had lunch here on our trip to the Columbia park. It is outside the park, but very close by. It seemed like a low-profile restaurant. The food was good with large servings. I would come back when we visit the park again.
