Our story

El Nido restaurant opened on august 27, 1971 one block south of its present location. At first, it was only a Bar because the landlord considered that a Restaurant would consume too much water.
On August 25, 1974 we moved to our present location and begun our restaurant service since, we grill our meats with wood, we cook the same beans soup and continue with almos our original staff members.
In 1984 we acquired a quail farm, located 16 miles South-East of Ensenada, at Valle de Guadalupe (the largest wine producers of Mexico), that i show quail was included in our menu.
On May 30, 1994 we acquired a lot of venison (Red Deer) from New Zeland with 98 female and 4 male; since then we serve venison meat from our own farm in our menu.
The quails and the meat of venison are very low fat products and cholesterol furthemore is fed naturally.
Groups majors of 10 people and with family, they can visit the farm, with previous appointment.
