Taco Rosa

2632 San Miguel Drive Newport Beach, CA 92660 | Newport Beach | 949-720-0980

Location Description:

It's not just the wide swath of Mexico-Mexico City, Oaxaca, even the Yucatan-that makes Taco Rosa one of the few truly successful gourmet Mexican restaurants. Taco Rosa succeeds because its few tweaks are Mexican-based and surprising. Ask for the aguas frescas, and instead of horchata, waiters will recommend a frosted, freshly squeezed cup of cantaloupe or melon--delicioso!
