Kids and Ollie
Tonight we went to Ollies brick oven pizza.
It's a great little restaurant just 5.5km south of us on the free road.

Ollie is a dog.  He hangs out at the restaurant.  (no health code violations south of the border...)
The Baja Explorers says it best:

Sometimes things are very different in Baja.  For instance, one of the best restaurants in the world is located in Rosarito and is "owned" by a dog.  Ollie is a Portugese Water Dog and his restaurant, Ollie's Brick Oven Pizza, was just awarded's 2013 Certificate of Excellence.  No, I'm not kidding. This prestigious award, places Ollie's Brick Oven Pizza in the top-performing 10% of all businesses worldwide on TripAdvisor, is given to businesses that consistently earn high ratings from TripAdvisor travelers.
SeƱor Sabrosisimo is well familiar with pizza.  He has enjoyed pizza at many of the top pizza restaurants in the US in cities famous for pizza such as New York and Chicago. Hands down, Ollie's is the best pizza.  Most ingredients are imported.  The cheese is special for pizza and made not to burn at the high temperatures found in a wood-fired oven, the flour is imported from Italy, as is the oven itself, it was imported from Italy.
Ollie's handmakes all of their salads and dressings, and desserts.  You will notice the quality the first time you visit.
The ambiance is modern and cozy.  Built in a rustic building that is over 100 years old, you will find free WiFi and starting in June 2013, airconditioning and heating for the hot summer nights or cool winter evenings.
