We came here for lunch and didn't expect much. We chose the place because it has a dog friendly patio and we had the pup with us. We were pleasantly surprised by how good the food was! Loved the shredded pork springrolls and Korean bbq tacos. The "perfect quesadilla" was not too special but good for picky eaters as it... More

Located in the Bowen's Wharf area, Diego's offers a funky Mexican menu and atmosphere. They have great drinks and the service was attentive. We were there for late lunch/early dinner, so it wasn't crowded at all. Chips and Salsa were good and the house Margarita was Muy Bueno...

We were greeted by a waitress who looked like she could barely be bothered to seat us. No recommendations for some of their signature items. Instead of waiting a second while the table decided what to drink she kept walking away. She left one pitcher of water and didn't acknowledge when it needed to be refilled. Shortly into our meal,...

Diego's is right in the middle of it all. Great Tacos and Margaritas. The atmosphere is great! Perfect place to people watch. Be prepared to wait on busy nights but it is worth it here.

Not a place to go when you are hung over. Spicy menu items and loud music. We were seated and then had to leave.

They have a great selection of craft cocktails and they are delicious! The menu has some interesting dishes very creative. The food was really good. The atmosphere is hipsterish and fun. They do have a separate gluten free menu.

We had a very satisfying lunch here while visiting Newport. Staff were another matter entirely. They paid little attention to us, some wore sunglasses while serving, and orders were delayed or forgotten about. Food did not arrive at the same time. Would recommend for the food, but the staff need to refocus.
