There are many great restaurants in Newport and Diego's one of them. It is located on Bowen's Wharf but not directly on the water. Food is really good and the restaurant fills up quickly, so arrive early. Burritos are awesome.

This small but comfortable restaurant has established a strong following in Newport. I'd say its a "must go to!" The location is convenient walking around the wharf, the portions are generous. I'd say it's easier to be seated at lunchtime.

Best guacamole ever!!! We came here our first day in Newport for lunch with our well-mannered Husky who sat under our outdoor table, content with her own water bowl and people-watching while my son and I gorged ourselves on best guacamole ever, made fresh and not spicy for us, with little bay s allops and shrimp mixed in...were too stuffed...

The number of drinks is mind blowing. The homemade guacamole is great. Believe it or not the cauli/mushroom quesadilla is terrific.

I was here on a Tuesday night in August ants were recommended by friends to go here. We walked in and went to bar and has drinks ASAP. Great bartenders and service. They recommended drinks and we were very happy. Great atmosphere. Didn't eat but would go back to try food here.

We dined in the restaurant's outside area. The service was prompt and attentive. The food is "Nuevo" Mexican in that the restaurant does not serve traditional Mexican dishes. The food selected was good. The quantities were sufficient if not a bit large. The cost was 'reasonable' for the food selected.
