Chef Miguel Angel Guerrero has become an icon in Baja Med Cuisine. Trying new flavors, working ocean products in a very different way. Duck a venison are also great.

Delicious food from the appetizers to the main course! Most of the ingredient are from the owner's farm There is a variety of platees to choose from. The food is Baja Med cousine cooked by one of the creators of this new trend

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