Fresh seafood

Just very fresh and very good seafood. We had oysters, clams, ceveche, calamari, and octopus. All well prepared and seasoned. Satisfying, and a great value.

After a short wait we were seated at Muelle 3, a little place on the Ensenada fishing harbor. Shortly before that, the chef walked in with a fresh tuna.....very very fresh! We orderd tuna sashimi, tuna tostadas, the soup of the day (sweet corn with clams), tacos and the risotto. The appetizers and soup were outstanding, could not have been... More

This is the best seafood in town. Fresh, deliciously prepared and a wide variety. The only reason why I am not giving it 4 stars is because it is quite difficult to seat and quite frankly a very basic dining environment for topnotch food.

This unassuming harbor side restaurant cranks out sensational seafood big on flavor. Tasty starters include spicy Pin Pon (grilled calamari and octopus), fluffy empanadas and delectable shrimp quesadillas. The creamy seafood pasta was loaded with succulent shrimp and bacon bliss. Muelle 3 is an Ensenada must.

I love this place, friendly staff, good service, I always feel relaxed here not hurried in anyway. Great view of the harbor, sea lions. But the food is the star, good quality, fresh, local cooked well, not messed around with, great flavor. I recommend this place.

I rarely review restaurants because the downside of eating at a bad place is small, however in Mexico the downside may be huge - getting food poisoning. Muelle3 is a very clean restaurant that inspires confidence in the food that few other restaurants in rural Mexico do. The food is also very well made and nicely presented - a touch... More

My wife had been in this place and had rated as very good. I say "lean and mean" in the most positive tone there is. The place is small ( maybe sits about 20 ) but there some original items in the menu. I am local guy who grew up enjoying clam cocktails in the street, my son is a... More

This small, cozy, and well managed spot on pier- pier 3, or Muelle 3- offers the freshest, best, seafood in Ensenada, for my money- and that's not a lot of money! Portions are large, dishes fresh from the sea, prices pretty dang good!. I've witnessed the owner purchasing fresh fish down the pier from my table. This place epitomizes the... More

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!
