Came to breakfast here for the first time. It was delicious. Everything was prepared perfectly. Eggs Benedict with Chipotle cream sauce. Breakfast sandwich. Bananas Foster Waffles. Steak Frites. All scrumptious! Forgot to take pictures because I wanted to eat it so quickly.

45 dollars for breakfast for 2, huge portions and great service - this would be the summary of today's breakfast.

Camilo's has been on my list to try for some time, and finally made it over to the Eagle Rock neighborhood to give it a try for a Saturday lunch. There are two dining rooms and also tables out in front on the street - with a small parking lot behind the restaurant. I enjoyed the bistro burger - adding... More

Penne Chipotle a must have. Really smoky Padilla Chillies were the main flavor in this dish. A romantic and contemporary spot good for any time and occasion. You can relax. Owners were hands on.

The food was fine, exactly what you expect and what you pay for. My problem is, once again I'm afraid it seems to be a theme recently, the restroom. Now I can only speak for the Men's but why, oh why, can't the management of this establishment put a little effort in keeping it clean and tidy and spending a... More

We chose Camilo's because it was a couple blocks from our motel and our daughter did not live too far from there. We weren't too sure what to expect, but the motel recommended it and we got a discount by showing our room card. The menu and specials was way better than we expected. It was all prepared fresh; the... More

The food here is ok bistro food.Stay away from their bland hamburger and the tepid Caesar. However, the service has gotten worse and worse. I will not go again.

Great homemade food. Feels like I'm in some great, quaint place in Europe. Here for breakfast now. I was here previously for dinner. Both times the food was delicious. The service is wonderful. Great family run feeling. The decor is quite soothing and beautiful.

I love that they are so traditionally Italian. Their food is delicious and the waitstaff is great. The ambiance is nice and it is generally a nice place. It feels a little dated but it is not worth overlooking. Great for a lunch, date and business adventure.
