    Rosa Mexicano is beautifully decorated place with a nice bar setting and DJ music. Ambiance and service were good but it is a restaurant and the food nor the drinks were on par with the service and the ambiance. Will not go back and can not recommend this place.

    My dining experience was incredible. From the valet parking to Frida, the incredibly friendly and patient waitress, to the special pork belly pineapple and scallop tacos, this place exceeded my expectations in every way. I would most certainly be recommending this restaurant to friends and I have already recommended this restaurant to family that lives on the island.

    The staff was better than any fine dining restaurant I have been to. We enjoyed everything we tried. The table fresh guacamole was a bit overpriced for just a single avocado for the two of us.

    Having experienced their flagship across Lincoln Center, NYC, this was a bad imitation. For starters, they could not serve their pomegranate margarita on the rocks....why? Because they had a frozen machine for that, and it tasted like acid lemonade. The menu was abbreviated leaving mostly tapas. I tried the soft tacos ceviche mahi mahi and it was like a tablespoon of salt in my mouth. The table side guacamole is the only thing that was reminiscent of the real Rosa Mexicano. What a pity, the place and location are beautiful.

    I would sum up the dinner as overpriced. The food had good flavor and there is plenty to choose on the menu, just simply over priced specially if considering we had kids in our party. Also make sure you understand what dishes are hot spicy as it took all four of us by surprise when upon the first taste of our food we realized it had a noticeable kick. I love hot and have to say it was the perfect amount of heat but others were not so happy about it and would have rather asked for something else. We also, upon arrival and within five minutes had to ask to be moved to a diferent table as the center tables in the middle of the floor are supe loud. The waitress was very diligent and quick to move us to a quieter table.

    When for the second time to give it the benefit of a second chance, but althougth the food is diferent and good in general at least the one in Puerto Rico did not impressed me. There are much much better places for the food, althougth the scenic view is great. If you go just to take a look and compare it is a nice place, but would I go back? Dont think so unless I just taking someone for curiosity.

    If you are searching for a traditional Mexican food, this is not the place. Services was fantastic, every single employee keeps prepare to help and answer your questions. Food was really good, but again, it's not a taqueria. As appetizer we order Queso Fundido with Chorizo sausage, a little salty. As entree I order a Pollo Pibil(Pibil chicken) lovely juicy chicken breast made at pibil's style ( anato/achiote paste and citrus), comes with ripped plantains and rajas. Awesome!!!! My husband order Pescado a la veracruzana, mahi mahi is tomatoes and peppers sauce, good but not outstanding.They include "family size" (normal size if you ask me) cilantro rice and refritos. Free valet parking included.

    Other than the noise level (very loud and had to shout at a table for 4 sometimes to be heard), the experience was great! Very good food, excellent, friendly service and a beautiful setting. The guacamole is exceptional and the short ribs melt in your mouth. Nice touch to serve a sample of the house Pomegranate Margarita.

    The food was exellent and the service was spectacular. Me and my mom went for lunch for the Restaurant week and we had a great time. The food was really good, we had the tortilla soup which has just the right amount of heat and the Cheese quesadillas. Main course I had the beef tacos and my mom had the salmon salad and they were both really good. The ending with some churros with 3 dipping sauces and a coffee dessert, they were to die for. Amazing experience, will be back.

It was a wonderful night. Food was a little expensive, but was money well spend. Only complaint is margarita's price $15.00 , $13.00 and they come in a drink glass.

    My husband and I had a long overdue date night here and had a great time. The tequila menu is awesome, had a very smooth reposado shot followed by a Suprema Margarita. The guacamole was very good as expected but the stars of the night were the churros. They were super light and crispy. The mahi mahi tacos with truffle oil were yummy. The only thing I would add is outside dining. With such a pretty view and ocean breeze, being able to eat outside would have made our night. The parking attendants were very courteous too.

    We were a party of four; my wife's birthday for which I got a reservation as it was a Friday night and I knew there would be many people there. I only had to wait for maybe 4 minutes for my table to be ready. The service was very good with the waiter providing ample details about the menu. He was very helpful in responding to the group's questions about the food and drinks' menus. The enchiladas with the tomatillo sauce were superb... I'll be back to try the quesadillas. The margarita was very strong and well prepared.

    Although the place and the food were good; the Host was terrible. No manner no courtesy. She didn’t want to engage in to understand that although at the time the claim didn’t have no openings, I booked immediately by Open Table and got a table in lest that 30 minutes. The Host was disappointed and furthermore didn’t want to acknowledge the reservation by Open table. We were finally taking care, but I had to reach out Open table to get my credits. But the food and the table service was good.

    The cheese fondue was too little for the price and the taste wasn't that great. We ordered the margaritas unicas and they were a letdown. First they wete served in a whiskey glass, not a margarita glass. They are ok but the size is too small for the $13. 00 we paid for each. We ordered a plate of flautas and a plate of fish tacos. The flautas tasted like the ones you get frozen at Costco. The fish tacos were little with a small piece of fish and not much more. The cost for three fish tacos, $19.00. Not a bargain. The only thing tjat we really liked were the churros we ordered for dessert. They were hot and crunchy. And came with three sauces to dip them in. Nice ambience but not the seats. Overall, not a great experience for what you pay

    Don’t expect standard variety. It’s just Mexican gourmet food. The margaritas are OK but expensive. You can get their prime entrée, Guacamole, in other places for less, notably On the Border. If you want regular Mexican food, there are other less expensive, same quality restaurants, in the island.
