I come to Rosarito about three times a year, but I plan on buying down here one day. I have enjoyed El Nido for over thirty years, and they are simple the best. The interior gardens have waterfalls and plants everywhere. wood grilled, they have their own ranch for raising almost everything they serve. Yummm...! I can eat here three... More

When I visit Rosarito there is no way I would be missing one of el Nido steaks, their rib eye is one of the best dishes Ive ever had, like ever, and it is served with hand made tortillas, the ambiance and decor of the place are great!!,

Beautiful place service and atmosphere. However food was not all the hype. Had the quail, steak, calamari and beef tacos. Out of the 4 the calamari was best followed you the quail and tacos. The steak was sadly mediocre at best.

We visited "El Nido" restaurant on Saturday August 13 at approximately 2:00 PM. We were a party of 13 people and we sat in the back garden area. I don't recall the server's name (he wore glasses). At any rate, everything that could go wrong went wrong. 1. Server took 15 min to acknowledge and welcome us 2. Server had... More

We came early for breakfast about 20 minutes before they opened at 8:00am. The door was already opened when I peeked in a gentleman welcomed us in. He said it was ok and escorted us to a table in the "patio" area. I just love this place, in the covered patio area you get a feel of being outside with... More

This is an amazing restaurant that we plan to visit again. The service was terrific and the food was spectacular. Try the house shrimp and the rib eye steak melts in the mouth. Highly recommend this place. Decor is stunning and feels like you stepped into a resort.

Went here with local friends and was great! As you enter you feel like you're going into a cavern or grotto with green ferns and trees, especially on the patio. Food was fine, we had steak that comes with potatoes, guacamole and salad. Chips & salsa were ok. All for under $20. One of the better restaurants in Rosarito for... More

El Nido is a very popular restaurant that is crowded on the weekends especially and very Gringo-friendly. In fact, just about everyone who comes here are tourist visiting for the day or week and so for me it has a very touristy feel to it. The dining areas are done up in a western motif with trees, waterfall fountains, sticks... More

This is a high end steak house is the heart of Rosarito. The service was good and so was the food. I ordered the surf and turf option on the menu which came with a perfectly cook ribeye, some garlic butter shrimp and a baked potato. As well as three other starter course which consisted of chips and salsa, a... More

Having been to El Nido dozens of times over the past many many years is a new experience each & every time! The ambiance is extremely unique, and the food even better! I always order the best steak in town, and always ask for a side of garlic in oil to spread into your baked potato, oh yes! Dinner comes... More
