The food was good and the price was right. The service was attentive but the best of all was the atmosphere. We sat next to the fire and listen to the waterfall. The lush plants made it feel secluded. A nice break from the hustle and bustle.

Went in for lunch while visiting Rosarito Beach. Service was slow and my meal was overcooked. I think it was a little overpriced.

I have lived in the area over 3 years and heard mixed things about El Nido, so I always passed and went to a different restaurant. This time we were being hosted by friends and so we went. I was pleasantly surprised with the service and quality of the food. The place is a little dark and old fashioned but... More

this place offers all kind options of wild game. they offer great steaks and it comes with so much food. It can get a little smokey in there but depends on how busy it is.

We had Sunday morning breakfast at El Nido. The decor is endlessly fascinating. The waitstaff is terrific. We loved the fresh tortillas. When we were there almost everybody else was Mexican families.

El Nido and it's sister location, Los Pelicanos, are two good stops to make for drinks and lunch fare. We did not have dinner at either venue. Food and service is very good although not remarkable as was Punta Morro in Ensenada. Parking is free and private.. give El Nido a try!

This is a large steakhouse restaurant with good steak, chicken, game, and seafood entrees. The menu is quite varied and contains the restaurant history, of which they're very proud. They opened in 1971. The beef is fresh, imported from Sonora, and the chicken and produce come from their own farm. The steak and seafood are very good. I had the... More

Heard about this place from our real estate agent and we were not disappointed. Breakfast was large and flavorful. Wife had the potato, egg, and chorizo burritos and at $4.00 she wasn't expecting anything to large. That was not the case. They were nice size and with plenty of flavor. I had the venison machaca with nopales, which was very... More

A very cool interior greats you when you enter but that's just the start. We found the service to be excellent and the food to be delicious.
