This is a very nice neighborhood restaurant. I had dinner at the bar with my son the other evening. The food was very good and reasonably priced. The house chardonnay was not the best. The management went out of its way to make sure we...More

It doesn't look like much, back in a corner of a strip mall, but Taco Rosa has some of the best Mexican food in Orange County, CA. Their margaritas are huge. But the food is the big attraction. Favorites include: Lobster Burrito, Burrito Arizona, Chicken...More

Okay, you're in Newport Beach so be prepared to pay. I found the service good and the atmosphere very nice. My fish tacos were excellent. Next time I host a big group, we're going to Costa Mesa.

The best thing about Taco Rosa is the atmosphere and service. The food is pretty average although the menu is comprehensive and there are specials every day. We were satisfied with our orders and enjoyed the company of friends so not much focus was on...More

Have been to Taco Rosa for lunch and happy hour many times. The happy hour is a good deal but the food tends to be heavy and fried. The drinks were good but not great. The service at Taco Rosa in Tustin was always good....More
