The Best Restaurants in ROSARITO BEACH

Just an hour south of the US/Mexico border, Southern Californians and Bajacalifornianos alike flock to Rosarito for its laid-back Mexican beach vibe, late-night spring break parties, and the typical, affordable culinary fare. Old Baja favorites include Puerto Nuevo style lobster, mesquite-grilled Sonoran steaks at Restaurant El Nido, and arrechera (skirt steak) tacos at Tacos El Yaqui. But a bit of exploration reveals a rich farm and sea-to-table culinary culture that’s growing as more sophisticated visitors begin to visit the region. Local farms, ranches and fishermen supply markets and restaurants with a bounty of fresh produce, seafood and meat. And at the end of the day, there’s always a beautiful sunset accompanied by trovador music.
