“Good Food”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Good Mexican food. The service was excellent and the restaurant was unique. We were seated by the lava rock water fall that has lovely green plants rooted on the rock. Altogether a pleasant experience.

“Best home made tortillas”
Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

This was a very nice and relaxing place to have dinner. It is more expensive than most other places we at but the food and tortillas are great.

“Why not? Por que no?”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

The skinny:

Parking- on the street if you can find it
Decor- rustic, check out wine cellar
Restroom- clean
Service- very friendly
Food- delicious
Coke Factor- in a glass
TIP- sit on patio by the water fountain wall

I have been to Roasrito 3 times and never miss a meal at El Nido. The waiters are so friendly and accommodating. We like to sit on the covered patio because the main restaurant is a little dark and the bubbling fountain is nice in the back ground. I love to order appetizers but if you order a meal, there is so much food, you won't be able to finish. Try the Chorizo Queso Fundido with the home made warm flour tortillas (the tortilla lady has a set up in the corner) - so good.

we ordered:
The Garlic shrimp- ridiculous amount of shrimp wrapped in a foil pocket swimming in a pool of garlic butter, if you love shrimp this dish is the bomb
Filet Mignon- tender juicy meat with a nice smoky flavor

these meals come with an iceberg dinner salad (get the dressing on the side otherwise its too much), bean soup (excellent) and a baked potato and fried zucchini

you will not go hungry and your belly will be happy

“El Nido's restaurants are always a good bet.”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

This place is exceptional in it's food, appetizers, and drinks. The patio area is charming and the prices are reasonable. I don't go here as often as it deserves because most times I would rather sacrifice great food for an ocean view, which Nido's does not have.

“Authentic Mexican Food/ Exterior & Interior Setting”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

This is a very popular location for a somewhat formal meal. The food is excellent, waiters speak English, and the staff is extremely attentive to your beck and call. They want to please you and make your dining experience the best possible. Unlike in the States, there is no attitude here, rather a very humble, loving staff. Please let me know your experience.
