My favorite is the fillet mignon! Very very tasty and tender.
The service is very good and the quality ranch to the table is exceptional.

We ate here twice. Seafood (salmon, broilled seafood plate) both very good. Service is good. Tip: servings are large. It's possible to share (compartir), no problem.

The restaurant decor is charming and pleasant. That’s the only positive thing I can say of this place. It might have been good once but it’s terrible now. Food quality is really bad, Taco Bell in the US has higher quality (I’m being sarcastic to describe how bad it is). Not even the coffee was bearable. My in laws are local and my mother in law swore never to set foot here again. Service was so bad we almost left twice. Absolutely avoid this restaurant

Always make a stop at El Nido for lunch when in Rosarito. Great service. Excellent food and drinks. Five minute stroll down to the beach from the restaurant. Only challenge is finding parking, but eating at El Nido is worth the effort.

For many, there is probably no culinary aroma on the planet more alluring than that of prime meat roasting on a grill over glowing coals.

It is a smell capable of touching a primal nerve that harkens all the way back to the cave.

And, if the fire below happens to be made from quality Baja mesquite it will quickly become a naturally seasoned feast that will require virtually no additional condiments to bring out its full flavor.

But however simple that combination may be, El Nido, which is Spanish for 'the nest', has artfully used those two basic components to carve out a reputation as one of the finest and most popular steak and game houses in Baja California.

With locations in Rosarito Beach, San Felipe, and Loreto, El Nido, has also become one of the most prominent of such restaurant groups on the entire peninsula.

Owner, Domingo Perez, has been in the restaurant business for over 40 years. He and his family have always taken extreme pride in the high quality of food served at there restaurants.

In fact, they even have their own organic ranching operation that provides their guests with plump, tasty rabbit and juicy venison steaks (not to mention their specialty, quail, which might reflect upon the name 'The Nest') to help augment with tender beef that they acquire from top producers on the Mexico mainland.

*El Nido's warm and rustic interior features open grills and glowing camals

From the moment you walk into the dining room, the captivating aromas, subdued lighting and homey atmosphere sets the groundwork for a great meal to come.

You may even choose to kick start your private fiesta with a frosty margarita to go along with the crisp, freshly made tortilla chips and authentic salsa de casa brought to your table by a member of their attentive wait staff prior to the arrival of the soup, which is accompanied by a fresh plate of chopped cilantro, white onions and delightfully grilled serrano chilis. Want to see how tortillas are made by hand?

This is the place.

The generously portioned meals here are reasonably priced, and also include hearty, homemade bean soup, fresh green salad, baked potato and all the fresh tortillas and zesty salsa you can eat.

El Nido restaurants offer full bar service and if you like, the festive strains of strolling mariachis is also on hand to help enhance the dining experience.

This famed Rosarito eatery has the added advantage of being within walking distance of the Rosarito Beach Hotel, vacation rentals, and near a fun shopping mercado!

Be sure to arrive with cash on hand, however, because no credit cards are accepted.
