Menu was good-looking, very Mexican names and sounded very tasty, it was good, well served with side chilaquiles and... More

The options in Chilaquiles are phenomenal, and the Omelette options are also very good. it's a little bit expensive, but is worth it. the service is also great :)

A small, well appointed restaurant where breakfast is excellent and lunch breaks away from the traditional Mexican, Italian, or Mediterranean cuisine now so prevalent all over town (known here as Baja Med). The service is very good and the food is served on time. The only reason I didn't give Marenca a 5-point rating is because of their limited wine... More

This past Sunday, my wife, daughter & I went to Marenca for Breakfast. Some friends recommended it to me. I have seen this place many times and it actually looks bigger from outside, it is really small. We waited for 20 minutes to get a table. It has a large parking lot, which is a plus in this area of... More

We dropped by this restaurant by chance. It's very well located in Zona Rio of Tijuana. The food was delicious, enjoyed our lunch. Service tried to do their best but at times was a little too much, it's seems most servers are really young and haven't been given adequate training. Prices were great. The restaurant doesn't have much of an... More

I had fish and vegetables and it was out of this world. Haven't had a dish like that in the States. My fiance had the steak and it came with the baked potato that was... More

My wife come here with all the school moms for breakfast. So one day decided to have breakfast together. They'll bring complimentary sweet bread (conchitas), we ordered green juice, which tasted very fresh. And had arrachera omelette and green chilaquiles, they were so tasty and portions are generous. Food temperature and seasoning were perfect, servers very attentive. The location Behind... More
