Ensenada's seafood place, and a great new year's dinner

Barra Azu, an unassuming blue building on 11th ave in Ensenada is not only far from the tourist route, it is also out of the way for almost anybody in Ensenada. Nethertheless, this place is never empty, either regulars, like us, or newcomers from Ensenada, Tijuana, San Diego or beyond. The fish... read more

So unassuming from the outside and very far from the tourist area, it's hard to imagine what fabulous seafood is INSIDE! The oysters are perfect and the tempura oysters redefine perfection. You just cannot go wrong there. The last time I was there, my entree was grilled yellowtail with a fig sauce. Sooo good.

Barra azul is not your typical seafood place in Ensenada. Located away from the ocean, the locale looks simple, and decoration follows the same trend. While overall impression is not exciting, their food is to die for. The combination of flavors (like the seafood rice, tempura oysters and other dishes) is perfect to share. If you visit, you have to... More

The seafood is good, not your traditional Mexican, more gourmet with good size portions. Very tasty. The location is not the best. Street parking only. I would park as close as possible. The service is very good.

This is not a place I visit very often but every time I go we agree it is great. The food is super good and always fresh. Even if the neighborhood is not touristy at all, I do recommend it to several tourists that often ask me for recommendations. The place might need a bit of warmth but the food... More

Even though it seems hidden from the rest of the city, this restaurant gives you a great experience. Food is really really good. So far I would recommend the seafood pasta, the lasagna, and the burritos. The drinks are pretty good too.
