This restaurant is a little hidden gem. I was introduced to Ophelia from a friend who is from the Tijuana area as we were on our way to Ensendada. From the outside it doesn't look like much but once you get inside it's a very cool atmosphere. We were in somewhat of a hurry but the staff did a great... More

Great outdoor patio with personable service and good margaritas. The menu looked interesting, although we did not eat here.

Driving on the highway into Ensenada you'd never guess what lies behind the facade. It's the best meal I've had in Ensenada. Fantastic fresh fish. Roast pork to die for. Invention. Mexican food with Japanese & Chinese influences. Excellent wine. Polite service. What more do you want? Go go go.

Great combination between Atmosphere, great vibes, super great food/wines and superb service made Ophelia one of its kind in the sauzal area of Ensenada. Rosendo (it's owner) and it's crew are great hosts! Every time we come back, Rosendo makes the whole experience unique... Please ask him to recommend the food and wines, you will be always surprised!... Congrats to... More

I went on noon on a Sunday with four other friends. The back patio was really cool and comfy. We had some white wine and ordered queso de cabra con pesto, won ton de salmon, camembert frito, linguini and fettucini fungi. Everything was good except the mejillones al vino blanco which I didn't like. The service was fine. The tab... More

Arrachera: med-rare came out perfect, very tender and juicy. One of the best steaks I've actually had! Linguine Marinera: the garlic aioli sauce was delicious. Seafood was fresh! Oysters: served with a soy based sauce on the side. You dress your oyster with the sauce, Serrano, red onion and lime. This is now my favorite way to have raw oysters!... More
