This place was recommended by a local. We had walked by it many times, but never thought to try it because it is so plain from the outside. Now that we've "discovered" it we will never pass it by again. The food is fresh and beautifully plated, and each dish is an elegant treat. Our server greeted us warmly and... More

Had the fish ceviche which was really fresh and tasty-- it was almost more of a poke though but very good. The mussels with fries also very good. Staff is helpful and pleasant. Prices are good too!

It's a tiny little restaurant, that doesn't look like much, but it's right on the marina, and the food was absolutely worth the time it took to find it. I had the best ceviche of my life here, and that is saying something. Everything else that we had was also quite tasty. All of the seafood was ridiculously fresh- it... More

This small gem is located on the malecon in Ensenada - the service is extraordinary with seafood to match. My favorite is mussels served with crispy French fries., It is a wonderful place to take guests from out of town, and never disappointed.

From pictures I had seen I was expecting a nicer place, when I walked in I was somwhat let down, the restaruant is very small with only a few tables decorated very simply, just a notch above the fish tacos at the black market, the waiter was very attentive and insisted that we asked any questions that we had, the...

We read about this place on trip advisor, and I knew I had to try it. It took a little bit of wandering to find it, thanks to GPS, we finally found it tucked away at the end of the docks. It's a very small restaurant with only about 30 seats so we sat on the sea wall and enjoyed... More

Delicious sea food, we ate ceviche with some Victoria Beer´s and it was amazing, Chef Andoney García has astounding skills and imagination in the kitchen plus the view and ambiance are really good, prices are affordable and food definitely worth the price.

If you enjoy good fresh seafood, with a flair of non traditional, this place is for you. Located on the Ensenada water front next to town. Had the oysters, cebiche and their local Agua Mala IPA. Excellent food
