I absolutely loved this restaurant the first time I can for dinner in 2011. I can't begin to express how far this location has deteriorated in terms of service since then. I almost stiffed the waitress she was so rude - slamming our food, not even setting our table, handing our check before we were finished, never checking up in... More

Went here for breakfast on 5th July. The food was good (I had the Mexican Rhino breakfast, my wife the fruit bowl & yoghurt) but service was very poor. I know the restaurant was busy but there was plenty on staff. All seemed very disorganised. We were virtually ignored for the first 10 mins, we were told our server was... More

We decided to give Rhinoceros Cafe a try for breakfast. Service was prompt. The food was served hot. It was tasty with plenty to eat and reasonably priced. There is a small outdoor seating area. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner although they are closed for a few hours in the afternoon and then reopen in time for the dinner... More

We had breakfast here today. We were served by Linda who couldn't have been more helpful. We wished we had found the grill earlier in our short stay as we were staying at a local well know nearby hotel where they have an in-house, well know coffee shop, which had crazy prices. We ate a lovely breakfast. They served proper... More

Rhinoceros Cafe and Grill are our go-to restaurant in Coronado. We have dinner there on a regular basis and recommend it to our friends. The food is excellent as is the service. However, today we had lunch with friends and were very disappointed with the service. First, the salads and wine were very good and worth going back for more.... More

The concierage at Loew's Resort, Kerry, recommended the Rhinoceros Cafe and, in particular, the cioppino. We booked a reservation in this relatively small cafe in an old, remodeled building on the main drag of Coronado. The setting is very nice, and we had attentive service from Victor. Kerry also recommended the lobster bisque and, since we're big fans of LB,... More

We have gone back 2 times to eat breakfast at Rhinoceros Cafe and Grill. Service is quick and the breakfast is delightful. A MUST is at least one of their "biscuits"....really a scone. It just falls apart and is yummy plain or with jam or butter.

Huge fresh healthy salad. Locals favorite. Service great! You'll come back again and again. The rolls? Well, they are unique and worth the calories.

I didn't want to eat at my hotel as the prices were crazy ($6 for instant oatmeal?), so took a walk down Orange Ave and found the Rhinoceros Cafe. Got 2 eggs, potatoes, a biscuit and some OJ to go and it was delicious. Very friendly staff, and very reasonably priced.
