We were very happy to find this Mexican Restaurant right within walking distance of our hotel - The Best Western Redondo. There was a bright enclosed patio area in the front but we were unable to be seated there since there was a party scheduled. The inside area was darker but was also very nice as was the bar area...

This was one of those 4:00 p.m. non planned stops on Tuesday. You see, today was one of those days that spontaneous rules! I really do have few of those but they do happen. Anyway, we had just rejoiced in pleasures as we enjoyed our 2 scoop cup of delicious ice cream at Handle's Homemade Ice Cream. Of course since... More

You know that it's going to be a great experience when you see someone hand making flour tortillas. I got the tour of tacos and they were wonderful. Each meat on the tacos was tender and flavorful. The margaritas were great. It was decorated with a day of the dead theme.

The house margaritas have won awards, and deservedly so. The food was also delicious and very flavorful.

We found Ortega 120 next to our Best Western Motel in Redondo Beach. The menu looked interesting from the outside and we saw the reviews looked good so we went inside and enjoyed a great Mexican meal. We started with the brussels sprouts that were seasoned lightly with lime juice, salt, queso fresco and pepita's. The sprouts were delicious! Then... More

Brought my husband for his birthday thinking the reviews were good enough. The drinks and atmosphere were good but food was not. My over seasoned fish was served on a broken plate, plates were too big for small portions, seasonings and sauces were too overpowering. Not one person in my party finished their food. I just don't see how this... More

Saturday night with reservations: Seated on time, service was great. The cocktails are fantastic. House margaritas taste refreshing, a little citrusy and definitely not too sweet. My husband had the carnitas torta, I had the short ribs and the other 4 of my party had the steak and shrimp. We all loved our meal and will definitely be coming back... More

This restaurant was within waling distance of our motel so we took it in. Very cool place. The decor is amazing with a "day of the dead" sense. One wall is crucifixes of every size. Our server was very attentive, (and the girls in our party thought he was quite good looking) The food was very authentic and tastey. Each... More
