Fillet mignon was unbelievable, but pricey. but worth it. Charbroiled perfection. They own their own ranch and keep their own cattle.

After having breakfast at La Estancia, we drove around Rosarito and found El Nido at Lunch time. We stopped and realized the two places are very similar. I had a Filet Mignon, which was really good. I had the best carrot cake and the best pastel de arroz con leche ever in this restaurant!!! I will definitely recommed visiting this restaurant.

I love their family atmosphere.

This rustically decorated restaurant lives up to it's name: Nido or "nest". It's cozy dark with the delicious aroma of mesquite. The food is superb. Don't miss the quail or any of the fine steaks offered.

Nice enough surroundings. Really nice, actually. Outdoor patio out back. I had the Sea Bass sauteed with garlic. Small portion of fish plopped onto a plate with a baked potato. Totally Forgettable. Flan was blah. $6 house margaritas. The two of us were WAY happier spending $30 at Splash then we were spending $70 at El Nido. IT really seems like the "chef" at El Nido is just phoning it in. Walking out I noticed they only have one hot sauce, Tapatio, and ketchup. That says it all. The only saving grace is the lady in the corner making tortillas, but that is not enough to save this place. El Nido, perhaps I was there in mid-afternoon and the "chef" was on a break. I don't know. The waiters were good. We were one of only about three parties in the restaurant this afternoon, and we got good service. If you wish you were back home in the US, you might like this place I suppose.

The second you walk into El Nido, you know you are someplace different.The restaurant has many artifacts from a bye gone era. The front room and patio are engulfed with several trees, plants water falls and streams filled with large fish and turtles. Their steaks are tender and cooked to perfection.They also raise they're own venison and quail. If you want a snack, the fresh made tortillas and guacamole are unsurpassed and very satisfying. Before you leave, don't forget to visit the secret room down the stairs in the patio behind the tortilla maker. A meal at El Nido will surely be a memorable experience of your visit to Rosarito.
