We were in the area looking for a vacation home to purchase and thought we would give Tapanco a try for dinner. We had breakfast earlier at their sister location El Nido and it was really good. Tapanco was outstanding good tasting good and well prepared. My mistake, I ended up with two entrees. I thought I was ordering calamari... More

We always go the places we always go, so we thought we'd try out a new spot. We'd been to some amazing places in the Guadalupe Valley and we always love Suzanne's in the Pueblo Plaza. So we looked this place up in the top 10 list for Rosarito This place was just ok. No real choices for people that... More

Food, service and drinks are great. We come here very often and loved it. They have homemade tortillas, salsa and guacamole.

We ended up having lunch here because we were in the neighborhood with some extra time, and hungry. We hadn't really planned to eat out that day, so I didn't come with heightened expectations and for that I'm glad. We enjoyed our food (Mexican Combination plates) and found it charming that the woman making tortillas was right next to us.... More

First time to Tapanco and overall an average dining experience. Our group chose steak platters and the consensus was the plates were good but nothing overly impressive. Service was good but at times wavered due to a few large parties in the main dining room. Did enjoy the salsa hand made table side. Would like to give Tapanco one more... More

First time at Tapanco restaurant. Food was average nothing special. We asked to be seated by the fountain but couldn't be accommodated so we sat by the entrance where it was dark and cold. I ordered a seafood combo which I regretted because my wife's filet mignon was much better. The baked potatoes all were dry (we were a party... More

Adorable and delicious restaurant near Rosarito Beach in Baja California. Had wonderful quail and lamb chop dinner. Don't miss the fried cheese appetizer. They make fresh salsa at the table and deliver a salad bar to you. We ate everything. Wonderful prices and wonderful quality. Can't wait to go back. Loved it so much for dinner we went the next...
