What once was good....then went to adequate....and now is terrible. Young, untrained staff, no visible leadership, disorganized, poorly kept, just plain bad attitude....as for the food...in a word, awful...the Chile Rellano is made from canned chillies, awash is mediocre sauce and quite small. The shrimp cocktail (usually a wonderful Mexican preparation) is made from bay shrimp. Rice and beans were... More

We are locals in the area and have eaten at El Jardin on many occasions. The service and meal we had tonight was VERY disappointing. Our waitress was the rudest waitress we have ever had at a restaurant. There was no interaction, no smiles, the only thing she was good at was throwing are plates in front of us. The... More

We've been here several times over the last few years. It's not the absolute best food ever, but it's definitely good and also good for quick take-out. We really like their chicken mole and the Cadillac Margaritas are delicious. Would recommend!

This is our local Mexican place to eat. Can't say it is the best I've ever had but am totally satisfied with the quality, taste and presentation of the dishes ordered. The staff are always pleasant. I had a birthday party for family and they prepared delicious food that was not expensive - enjoyed by all.

El Jardin's is a great pace to have a quick meal, family meal, or just sit back and drink some wine and eat chips during the summer or all year long. Both inside and out side seating for everyone to enjoy.

We came on a Sunday for lunch. Food was great. Just the right amount for the price. No one was there to make my Margarita. Service really sucked.

We came here after we left another restaurant (the Prospector) and the contrast between the two restaurants could not be greater. The Prospector only caters to itself and basically tells the customer that he/she is not important, El Jardin went above and beyond in customer service. We had a great meal and really enjoyed ourselves at this restaurant. The margaritas... More

OOps accidentally wrote my review of El Jardin on the Little Cottage cafe instead. Still wanted everyone to know we ate here two days in a row while visiting Twain Harte and loved this place. The kids that work there are nice, friendly and helpful. The food and margaritas are great and the atmosphere was really nice.

This is a great little place. Good food, good service- and if you have a crowd, they cater to go! I love their shrimp quesadilla, and they make an excellent burrito (which is also available to go). They make a really good flour tortilla chip as well as their corn ones
