I have been here a few times and each time I ordered the same meal, Carnitas. It is delicious. The fruit flavored Margaritas are delicious (a little overpriced in my opinion but this is Newport so that is to be expected). I love the view, I love the vibe, I love the décor!! It is a very unique restaurant with... More

Okay let me start by saying my first taste of Javier's was in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. I was soooooo friggin happy with the yummy food. So when the word on the street told me there was a location in Newport I was soooo determined to get there. It was close enough to my birthday that I could pull the... More

Javier's is on PCH with beautiful ocean views. It is a great place to eat or just get a drink. Very nice restuarant! Highly rcommend their margarita's, chips and salsa. The dinner taco's are delicious. Very nice experience.

Great appetizers and great location. In place for cocktails with high energy later in the evening. Personally "manned" restrooms asking for tips is annoying.

I have had food at this place 4x and every si god time I had stomach problems for 2 days. Something must be wrong in the kitchen. Either the kitchen is dirty or the quality of food is bad. Don't eat here

My family and I have been going to Javier's for over 20 years, first in Laguna Beach and then in the Irvine Spectrum and Newport Coast. It is consistently the best Mexican food I had ever had! My favorite is the Steak Fajitas made with prime steak - nothing better!

I was prepared to dislike Javier's because of its prominent location in Crystal Cove, its prices and its noise level. However, the noise was primarily a holdover from the brunch service (we were there mid-afternoon) and a combination of an exciting Masters tournament. It calmed down as the meal wore on. The chips and salsa. The chips are delicate and... More

Here with a group for Sunday lunch. The view is fantastic and the food is OK. They could offer more choices. I ordered the prawns and they looked a bit mushy and bland. There was a lot of garlic but still no taste to my palate.

Every time we travel to Newport Beach, Javier's is a must on our list! My wife loves the shrimp enchiladas and I always enjoy the guacamole, chips and margaritas. The decor is really something to see with the large fans in the dining area, the bar in the lobby and the kind-of outside seating with protective roof. The service is... More
