had a late lunch at Diego's this week. The shredded pork spring rolls and spicy guacomole were great. The nachos with chicken (can't remember the name) were good. The creme on them was a little heavier than I antipcated (thought it would be more of a sauce). Had to pay $5 for chips and salsa. Never been to a mexican... More

Casual, open air, delicious, friendly staff and all around go back to over and over. Great guac, a super margarita and a flan to die for. All ages were enjoying the food.

Diego's is one of my favorite restaurants to go to. Not only do they have authentic Mexican cuisine, but they also have an incredible drink list. My favorite drink is the Santa Baya Margarita, which is similar to a typical margarita, but served with cinnamon. I also think their enchiladas are the best around. I have had the pulled pork...

Service was great and the food was tasty. The price was lower than what the quality and quantity would suggest, which was great. Margaritas' were strong and flavorful. The staff was helpful with suggestions and recommendations. This was is a definite must.

The patio is now open, and I recommend you sit out there. Market lights strewn all around, this casual spot is serving fresh Mexican cuisine with a modern twist. To start, we ordered the Braker’s Guac (made-to order guacamole served with freshly cooked tortilla chips with Salsa Fresca). This is the perfect starter, and the best part is, they refill your...

A friend and I had a light lunch before a sailboat ride on the Adirondack II and randomly chose Diego's because it is close to sailboat launch. Check Diego's out if you want Some unique mexican choices with seafood flair. The guacamole had shrimp, scallops on top and was so fresh and flavourful. Spicy tuna tostadas were excellent as well....

We stopped in for some appetizers and drinks. The menu and drink list have some new and interesting options that you won't see at the typical pub or waterfront bar. Try the grilled avocado and one of their many tequila cocktails. Looking forward to visiting again on our next trip to Newport.

Mexican Seafood in Newport. Yes! We were looking for a place on the water but "settled" for Diego's near the water. The outdoor seating was comfortable and shady. Our first meal was about 4:30 pm, so we didn't have a problem getting a table. We ordered a little bit of everything and sampled the food. We enjoyed everything from quesadillas... More

My husband and I frequent Newport a few times over the summer and go to our favorite restaurants. We were with family on this trip and decided to venture a new restaurant and cuisine - we were pleasantly surprised. The menu had something for everyone and happy to see small plates as an option. Warning - the nachos and salsa... More
