Our family has been regular customers since El Jardin opened. We love the fact that we can order the same dishes at different visits and know it will not be disappointing. The restaurant is very clean including the restrooms. We enjoy seeing the long-term employees, something that doesn't happen in other restaurants. Eating at El Jardin is like eating great... More

We loved our visit to El Jardin, a recommendation from our Airbnb host. Sangria was delicious - the grapefruit juice made it tasty bit less sweet than most. My burrito was amazing (chicken with red sauce). Husband was thrilled with taco salad made-to-order with grilled shrimp. Brother-in-law loved his shrimp fajitas. He also enjoyed a margarita and flan (he said... More

The food is fresh and the sauces are very flavorful. The restaurant was crowed but was able to get seated quickly. They also provided high chair for grandchild.

The food is always good here. When I have gone in the past the service was very bad. I hadn't gone in a couple of years, but my son took me out one day. Instead of the former rude female waitresses, we were waited on by a nice young man.

Small restaurant, often a short wait to get in, but definitely worth it. The flour tortilla chips are my favorite. You can order a delicious bean dip and their cabbage salsa is yummy. This places mosaic tile floor will make you fell like you're in Mexico. The garlic fish tacos are the best I've tasted.

El Jardin is a great place to eat with a nice quiet, clean atmosphere. The food is very fresh (no pre-made batches of beans and rice). Slightly more money, but well worth it!!!

A long time friend recommended El Jardin' s and we are glad he did. Most dinners $13.99 range. We both had chimichangas, and because they aren't pre made my husband could have 2 kinds of meat. Portions very large and great flavor. I can't handle spicy hot and didn't have to. We both had more than enough leftovers for another... More

We discovered this place a few years ago as a place for a break, driving from Berkeley back to Pasadena. We never miss now. The reasons are several: 1) the food is very tasty 2) huge portions, 3) quick refills on drinks, 4) delicious salsa 5) friendly staff and 6) a beautiful environment (even the mosaic tile floor is beautiful:...

Here on a Saturday 8pm, maybe 10 minute wait. Staff didn't have much personality, but that made us laugh, so didn't really hurt the experience. Food was very good, plenty of it, 3 of the 4 in our group took leftovers home. Chips and salsa tasted homemade (vs Sysco or other mass distributor). Good place, we'll go again on another... More
