Great vibe, simple menu, good food (though better restaurants around). Really lively and the new additions to the building are great. I have, however, stopped going because ok two subsequent visits members of my group got food poisoning...first my sister, and then two months later myself. Kind of ruined the charm for me, but maybe I'll be brave enough to... More

Highly recommend the Thursday night special They rotate the menu so you will have to check for that week I recommend you join their Facebook family and then you will know all the things going on. The food is good and the people are great. We go a couple a time a week just to have fun

lots of expats in this particular restaurant, i was very hesitant to go to this place, even after driving many times in my way down to Ensenada, but now I regret not visiting earlier. the food is really amazing, and it was nice to see the owner guiding and telling the servers to visit tables that needed help.

Friendly bar, very good food. The place is always busy. Says a lot about a restaurant and bar when there are a lot of cars in front of it. Jaime's a great guy. Great prices.

Super friendly Vibe, great cheap eats, excellent service. Probably the best all round neighborhood pub in the Rosarito area. After 14 years of living here, surprised I never stopped in before, but one of my new favorite places. A serious step up from your average taco joint. Super good flavors in every meal. Back twice in the first week. Thanks... More

Had lunch with a friend. He had fish tacos and I had a meat burrito. Piping hot with a perfect harmony of flavours. Great service with a smile and a great location too. I've been here in previous years and I've always been impressed. I'll be back and I will recommend it to friends travelling there. Well done again!!!

We went on a friday night for karaoke with Eddie. What a fun time! Best margaritas I've ever had and the food was awesome too. A must-do on any trip to Baja.

What more can you ask for here, Jamie the owner is as nice as anyone gets. There is a great party vibe on the weekends, it is close to the surf and the food is tasty and affordable!

Its good. A lot of gringos go here and they have a big repeat crowd, which is great to see. I found it a bit slow to get service and they weren't really that busy. All were friendly and food was good. Worth the stop but not mind blowing.

We go to this place about 4-5 times a week and why? 1. The food is cooked with love! Family cooking with love and care 2. Great service. 3. Ok let's be honest the drinks are great. 4. Good view from the deck in the summer time 5. My wife loves Jamie!!
