“Our Go-To local restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

We have eaten here at least 10 times now since they opened and are very pleased with the food. It's probably somewhat mild for some peoples taste but I think they spice everything just right. If you are looking for tongue scorching Tex-Mex or heavy spices that will haunt you all night Fresco isn't for you. This is a true family business with a courteous staff, food arrives quickly, and the view of the bay is an added bonus. What impresses me is everything we've had was freshly prepared and not made from canned ingredients such as refried beans. Their Chile Rellenos are the best we've had in years and always made to order. Their Chile Verde is also quite good with a well balanced green sauce. Hopefully they will get their beer license soon and the place will be even better. In short we think it's the best place to eat in Waldport and are thankful they decided to pick this spot to open. Give it a try.

“Delicious. Mild and very tasty Mexican food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2013

This is a new Mexican restaurant in Waldport that opened late summer of 2013. I hope they do well!

Fresco is a small family run restaurant; open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week. Located in an old building, they've done a good job of freshening it up inside and out. There is a patio out back with a pleasant view of Alsea Bay and some of the inside tables also have a bay view.

We've eaten here several times and each time enjoyed what we had. I don't like really spicy food and appreciate tasting the food, not "hot sauce", so for me this is a great place as everything I've tried is rather mild, not spicy.

My favourite dinner has to be the Chicken Mole. Often this dish has quite a "kick" to it, but Chef Juan at Fresco makes it very mild so you can enjoy the wonderful chocolaty taste. We also like the enchiladas and tamales. My husband enjoys the Chicken ala Crema, which is made with a nice cream sauce and mild peppers.

The menu is not as huge as in some Mexican restaurants, but they have a good selection. They serve all the usual choices and also several kinds of 'full meal' salads. Full dinners run from about $9 to $12 and lunches are right around $7. Dinners include extra tortillas and they are always fresh and hot.

As of the time of this review, they do not serve beer or wine. It would be great if they'd get a license and offer Mexican beer and local microbrews! Service is always friendly and efficient.

We'll keep going back :-)
