We took a cab to Puerto nuevo to have lunch every one fights for you. We walked in went up stairs the service was great but you pay for it. It's pricey. The flower tortillas made fresh are to die for . We had the lobster ,rice beans and a soup great food . My only complaint the price you... More

I love to go eat here every year for my birthday the food is so good! The lobster and tortilla soup my favorite are the little rolls they give you with cream cheese and jalapeños! Not to mention the great view right on a cliff!

I love Villa Ortega's. I went about 2 weeks ago with family before we went wine tasting. It had been years since I had been to the restaurant and it was delicious. We arrived around 11am and it was not crowded. The large outdoor seating was beginning to get filled, but we were sat immediately. We ordered micheladas, ceviche and... More

Place was huge. Servers were great, attentive and helpful. Got a table to watch the sunset. It's a bit hectic driving to it. Just ignore the street valets trying to get you to park and drive straight there. Valet park once you're there. Tip a buck or two when you leave. More food than we could eat. Different size lobsters... More

We had a good lunch and the food was good, I used to to Puerto Nuevo many years ago , it wasn't as big , and the lobster was fresh , now is all frozen it does not taste the same, the thing that surprised me was that when the check came it had a tax of 17% and the... More

I have been travelling to Puerto Nuevo, Mexico since I was a kid. I had not been for quite a while so I was surprised how HUGE the area had become. Villa Ortega's is surely the Queen of the area. Very beautiful main hall with giant party tables everywhere. We were led about 100 yards to the farthest patio which... More

This place has been around since the 50's. Perfect spot for a date or round of drinks with the boys. Only one thing to order here and that is in the title.

Waiter was okay, did not come off as super friendly. Good food overall, not the best we had while we were there. Was the more expensive place we ate at while we were there, but then again, neater, nicer looking restaurant we ate at, seems to have to floors overlooking ocean. We enjoyed it, drinks were good, some snooty neighbors... More

I went down to Puerto Nuevo on a Sunday with my Mexican family. We had to strike any thought of dropping by Popotla from our minds when we saw the long line of vehicles clogging the dirt road entrance to the village. The restaurant was quite full and where they seated us was very noisy as well. Sure we had... More

This place is always a go to whenever we go into Tijuana. About 35 minute drive in from the border. Best known for lobster, their famous views, great service & pitcher margaritas! I have been going here since 2003 and it's still good. Their menu changes once a year it seems. Their best pitcher to order is Pina Colada. Only... More
