This is a cute little place. Not a lot of seating. We were looking for a quick bite to eat before grabbing a flight. Great for this. Great location. Would come back again when wandering the area. Moderate pricing.

After spending the afternoon at the beach, we wandered around town and came across the Rhinoceros Cafe and Grill. The food was delicious and the service great. We enjoyed it so much that we made a trip back to Coronado Island specifically to go to Rhinoceros Cafe and Grill before heading to the airport to catch our flight home.

For a relatively small restaurant, Rhinoceros puts out a good meal. Seating is limited but service is very good. Prices are moderate. There are some unique salads and pasta dishes, but heartier fare is also available in the way of steaks, chicken dishes, and even ribs. Rhinoceros serves 3 meals a day and is centrally located on the Main Street... More

In yet another attempt to escape the overpriced food at the Del, we ventured out for a morning walk/breakfast and decided to try the Rhino Cafe. The service was excellent (friendly, local, professional) and the food was also very good. The portions are enormous; I could only finish about 1/3 of my meal. Coffee was good and frequent refills started... More

For a small restaurant located in a gorgeous building, I was thoroughly unimpressed. The server was rude and unprofessional, the menu small, and the food was lackluster. We will not be back.

It has been years since I have been here. It was a favorite of mine years ago when I lived in Coronado. I came to visit old friends and this was easily the choice for all of us. The atmosphere is very small and cozy but the food is fantastic! The wait staff are appropriately attentive. It was a wonderful... More

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
