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. I do not speak Spanish and so, I was not privy to the names but the fish melted in your mouth and... More

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.

I was taken by a couple of business friends to La Querencia for lunch and had one of the best meals I have ever had in the world and certainly the best in Mexico. Forget your idea of Mexican food being all burritos and refried beans. The BajaMed style at this place is wonderful. We started with a seared Ahi... More

The parking lot in front of La Querencia is a little tight, and is shared with the neighboring El Grill. You park yourself, although there is an attendant. There is a blackboard menu, where I always look first, since these are generally special items. Sometimes the service is good, sometimes it is NOT so good.

I've been here three or four times, the most recent to celebrate my birthday. Everything was great-they had a big table waiting for us (with reservations) and there was nothing but delight when the food was served-to all 15 of us.
