“old school”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

in previous reviews have already panned our hotel and to lesser extent, ensenada in general. however all our food reviews are glowing. this one will be no different.

its a few extra blocks out of the tourist centre but we had a vehicle so chose to drive instead of walking. restaurant is not much more than a covered driveway alongside someones house in a residential area. great by us as it had a decidedly local feel and everyone there was residents it seemed. went specifically for the shrimp tacos with chipotle cream sauce as was recommended to us. they were simple and delicious. the sauce was a bit runnier than we were expecting (was thinking drizzled from a squeeze bottle but rather shrimp cooked in runny sauce). this made things a bit messier but the flavour was wonderful.

“On a sleepy side street, great seafood tacos!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

Ensenada is one of my favorite Baja cities. One day a video came across my Facebook page about 5 great mariscos restaurantes in Ensenada by Rick Bayliss. We were staying in town for a couple of days, so I pulled up the video to try one of the places for a meal. We found the offbeat location on Avenida Rayon where, as expected, Marco Antonio was there to greet us as we began to fill our plates with the buffet selections for lunch. He and his staff graciously answered our questions about the various dishes as we attempted to try as many as gastronomically possible without being stuffed. I gotta say this is a place you will need to revisit as we did. Everything was excellent down to the cold horchata and the condiments array. So many combinations are possible! Open for breakfast and lunch closes at 2 pm.
