Dog Friendly Patio with Great Food

My fiance and I had a great experience here. We went for lunch and sat on the patio. The food was extremely satisfying and delicious. We came with 2 corgis and were allowed to sit in the outdoor patio, with no problems. The drinks were the best of our trip. We will return here. Only slight... read more

This was our last evening meal in Newport and it was a BLAST! The wait staff rocked and the food was fantastic. The drinks were quick to come and strong enough to notice. The food was authentic Mexican and great.

After our last visit (just over a year ago) we returned because the owner asked us to give them another chance. We stopped by for lunch today and the turn-around was amazing. Lunch was wonderful from the second we sat down to the moment we left. Service was outstanding and the food was even better. We started with the guacamole... More

Loved this place, very good food friendly staff. Pricey, but no more than anywhere else and I don't mind paying if the food is fresh.

The problem with TA is people have no context for what they are posting. This is a seaport Mexican place that is open air(so no AC) in Newport, RI which is a pricey place. It has a good vibe and our waiter had a good attitude and was helpful. The food was excellent and the appetizer Guac was never ending... More

Mediocre at best, and that's pushing it! Ordered the Barbacoa Beef Burrito w/a side of guacamole ($3 extra for 2 tablespoons) & honestly, you can get fresher better tasting ingredients for 1/2 the price at Chipotle. The dinner came without chips & salsa, which is pretty standard for a Mexican restaurant charging these prices. It also came with a side... More

Nice place for quick brunch and lunch. Waitresses so pleasant, having much courtesy with the clients. I've tasted with my colleague either the "Baja" calamari and nacos with chicken. Good choice. Recommended for quick meals.

I had the Perfect Quesadilla, and it was well done. The servers were friendly, helpful, and timely. The setting with a patio was enjoyable. The only reason I am not rating this higher is: the guacamole clearly was not fresh. It tasted like the preservatives used in a store bought product.

Hi Guys, Glad to hear you liked our food but also bummed to hear you walked away thinking our guacamole was pre-packaged. Other than some hot sauces we offer at the table, our food is all made from scratch and most importantly, our guacamole which is our most popular appetizer for 6 years. We get 5-9 cases of fresh hass... More

If you enjoy Mexican food, Diego's will not disappoint. The loaded fish tacos are amazing with fresh ingredients & loaded with flavor. And the breakfast menu at Diego's is equally satisfying & yummy. If you are in Newport & love Mexican food, make sure you go! Also, the staff & service is excellent!
