They would say you did me justice! The food here is all very good and well cooked. The duck tacos are my favorite! Ask for the house rattle snake tequila.

I've been to la Querencia many times and can't get enough of it. The duck and lamb tacos are out of this world. The oyster shooter is a must as well. It's a cool little place with one taxidermy after another (so it's not the place for you if you're a PETA member or a vegan; just sayin'). The service... More

I was in this restaurant with a couple of colleagues. We had gone from San Diego. It was kind of more expensive than what I thought I would pay in Tijuana but the food and wine were excellent.

The tradition of fishing and hunting is expressed in this restaurant. A fusion that reveals the BajaMed cuisine. Love the simplicity and the flavor of the dishes. Simply, delicious. As a Mexican, proud to find places like this one.
