The staff were very friendly and the atmosphere of the wharf area is always inviting. The food was very good. I recommend the guacamole which was great and the fresh salt and peppered chips made it even better. The fish tacos were excellent and were a perfect blend of fish and other ingredients. Also, their mezcal drinks were very good.

Seeing the words Mexican Fusion can be a little scary but Diego's pulls it off and well. No stranger to Mexican food after years of California living I have high expectations. Diego's menu has a nice variety of meats, fish and vegetarian options that mix sometimes surprising ingredients. We dined on the Cauliflower Mushroom Quesadilla and the Lamb Burrito. The... More

Diego's has the best margaritas I have ever had. All of their ingredients are made fresh and they use quality tequila. They also have some original margarita flavors. The food is also excellent, we had the spring rolls and rangoon's with a Mexican twist they were both excellent. The service is outstanding. All of the employees are so friendly and... More

Delicious food, friendly service and a great atmosphere. Go for the nachos. Best I've ever tasted. Reasonably priced as well.

You had me at fresh salsa. Forget the name of mine, but it had three eggs, hash browns, bacon, salsa and sweetbread. I had the eggs over easy, in retrospect I should had had them scrambled. The home-fries were great and so was the bacon. My wife had the Texas stuffed French toast. Add a side of bacon and it... More

A late afternoon snack of roasted vegetable nachos and margaritas were perfect after a day of mansion touring! Do it! Good fresh food and strong margaritas. Gets crowded, go early.

How have I missed this place for 5 years?! Excellent meal and experience from the moment we walked in and were greeted with a warm smile from the guy setting up tables. I was there with my daughter and 8 year-old son and we had a ball. Salsa 4-Ways is a must. Each salsa it's only flavor burst and put... More

We love the Wharf Pub their sister bar so we went to check this place out. They have a great choice of highly complex drinks that are amazing. Worth the stop in! We heard the food is good but we haven't tried it yet. Next time!

My husband and I dined at Diego's on Sunday. We were enjoying a lovely spring day in Newport and decided on an early dinner. A little after 4pm we stopped into Diego's. I had been there previously just for a drink at the bar and wanted to try it out for dinner. I am so glad we did! The place... More
