The staff here make the dining an event. Fresh salsa made at the table, waiters who remember you and call you by name and a great ambience make the dining great.

Making salsa to order in a stone molcajete at your table, serving handmade corn and flour tortillas hot off the comal, and delivering a lazy susan of salad fixings/dressings are just some of the special touches that make a meal at Tapanco so memorable. Add to that some great game -- venison, quail and local lamb, plus fine steaks -- and you have a very pleasant meal. The Mexican combo plates were only so-so, but the grilled meats were excellent. Love the ceiling lined with branches and the open ovens, as well as the dining patio. Great family place and great for overall dining in Rosarito Beach!

We were having a nice time - five adults and seven kids. The atmosphere was unique and the food was good, not great by any means.
We stopped having a nice time when we received our $180.00 (US) bill, which seemed a bit high, then discovered that they charged us for four extra salads, that us adults had simply shared with our kids, as well as charged us extra for tortillas and beans which are usually included in the meal and even said so on the menu.
It left a real bad taste in each of our mouths and made what was a nice time into a sour experience.
If hey can rip off the gringos, they will probably try at Tapanco.
