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

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
