“Great, Great, Great. Food, Service, Value.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

Hacienda Guadalupe Restaurant, situated on the hillside adjacent to the Hacienda Guadalupe Hotel, is another of the emerging gems in Guadalupe Valley, Ensenada's Wine Country.

The restaurant is owned, managed and run by a local Mexican family, with an outstanding group of kitchen staff and servers. The food is artistically crafted, and the presentation is outstanding.

Most of the serving staff speak a little English, and the menu's are printed in Spanish and English.

The food is more continental than Mexican, though Mexican dishes are on the menu and are very good. But it is the creativity of the Chef and her staff which make the dining experience worth it.

We are now a consistent visitor to this restaurant, which is in fact about one hour from our house. But with the quality it presents, along with the fact that it is in Ensenada's Wine Country, makes it worthwhile to visit.

The Chef is willing to work with guests on variations on a menu item (as an example, for us they easily substituted wonderful sauteed vegetables for the shrimp on the Lemon Pasta).

The major entrees are part of a three course meal; other smaller plates are served individually with the salad or soup and desert at an additional price.

The wine list is extensive and varied, with most of Mexico's best wineries represented.

Prices are excellent, with most full meals coming in at about $15 - $20 USD per person.

The view to the west and down in the Guadalupe Valley is in itself worth the visit. But when you put it all together, Hacienda Guadalupe is one of the best restaurant values in the Ensenada area.
