Waiter was okay, did not come off as super friendly. Good food overall, not the best we had while we were there. Was the more expensive place we ate at while we were there, but then again, neater, nicer looking restaurant we ate at, seems to have to floors overlooking ocean. We enjoyed it, drinks were good, some snooty neighbors... More

I went down to Puerto Nuevo on a Sunday with my Mexican family. We had to strike any thought of dropping by Popotla from our minds when we saw the long line of vehicles clogging the dirt road entrance to the village. The restaurant was quite full and where they seated us was very noisy as well. Sure we had... More

This place is always a go to whenever we go into Tijuana. About 35 minute drive in from the border. Best known for lobster, their famous views, great service & pitcher margaritas! I have been going here since 2003 and it's still good. Their menu changes once a year it seems. Their best pitcher to order is Pina Colada. Only... More

The best lobster place in Baja, with huge sides of beans and rise, giant flower tortillas, and fresh made margaritas.

I had a good experience asking for their specialty, the lobster. I have heard many tales about how good lobster were in Puerto Nuevo, and the experience with the food and the service was quite satisfying, yet I was not overblown. I picked the place after circling the town a couple of times because it was oceanfront, and had some... More

The tortilla soup was soo good and the lobster was tasty as well. Very fresh seafood. We tried the chimichanga appetizer as well. I loved the shrimp inside but it was loaded with mosty bell peppers which I hate, and just a few little pieces of shrimp. We stayed at Bobby's By the Sea and this restaurant was only 2... More

This restaurant is mighty tasty and would definitely come back again. The plates are huge and reasonably priced. They don't really offer breakfast, mostly fish plates. Their lobster is delicious! I didn't get a chance to try their desserts just because I didn't have room in my tummy for it :) Also this place sits along the beach so you... More

We have found Mexico to be about food - and great food at that! Our friends took ut to Villa Ortegas for a lobster feast and we weren't disappointed. Compared to almost anywhere else the prices were very minor and the platters of fresh Lobsters made for a terrific night! Great food - try it!

Thank Rob S
