Once again we ate twice at Tapanco. We happened to be staying next door and it was real convenient to just walk over. Pepe, our waiter, was more than outstanding. We never wanted for anything. We had the rib eye and carne asada tacos the...More

For whatever reason, Rosarito has plenty of mediocre-quality "steak house" restaurants (El Nido, Pelicanos, El Encino, La Estancia), and this is just another one. On the plus side, service and the hand-made flour tortillas are excellent and the prices are fair. The food, however, is...More

Stopped to have dinner with some friends. Food is good, quick and priced very reasonable. Just remember you can never go wrong with Mexican food. Everything that was offered on the menu looked good.

Is their rooftop patio going to be open and serving for the 3 day weekend. We can't make it tonight but would love to sit up there tomorrow (Sunday night) if it's open. We love the upstairs! Fingers crossed - thanks!
