I have been going to the halfway house for 15 years now. Johnnie is an awesome chef and a very kind fellow. I am chuckling at some of these other reviews complaining about price. In my opinion, Johnnie is a world-class chef. He is trained in French and Spanish cuisine and also has taught other chefs. We consistently go there... More

We came here for lunch but just ended up getting beers and looking elsewhere. Really cool little hole in the wall right on the water, but the prices are average to high for the US. The complementary salsa was great. Most dishes are $10-20. They do have a kids menu.

The Fillet Mignon in wine and mushroom sauce is unbelievable. The meat was so tender you could cut it with your fork.

Half Way House is a historical landmark that unfortunately is deteriorating a bit, but Chef Johnny's great food, his congeniality, the Pacific, and LOW PRICES more than make up for that. Where else, even in Mexico, can one get a full meal, even lobster, with soup or salad, the entree, and dessert for $10.00? And Johnny himself, an excellent singer,... More

I have made two visit the halfway house and have been disappointed both times. The first was last winter to attend a musical event by an exceptional pianist.... too bad the food was exceptionally BAD and service worse. In addition the fireplace did not draft correctly and the dining room was filled with smoke. My second attempt was a bit... More

Chef Johnny is a very nice man but he has lost his touch where food is concerned. Has some good entertainment.

Had a great seabass dinner. Caesar salad was excellent. Chef Johnny sang for us after a concert with the guitar maestro Miguel De Hoyos performing during Christmas dinner. A good time had by all. Will make the Half Way house a regular stop.

On the border of Rosarito and Ensenada, overlooking the ocean you can find this delightful little spot. With both indoor and outdoor seating set your palate in gear for a culinary adventure in flavor which will keep you coming back for more. Not only is the food delicious and the ambiance warm and inviting, Chef Johonny comes out to talk... More
