“One of the best in Ensenada”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

There's a good mix of Baja cuisine (which is terrific, the freshest of local produce & seafood which presumably comes from a few feet away!) and some Mexican classics. I'm not a huge fan of hotel restaurants in general, but we ended up eating here 3 times for one reason or another, and had really good food each time, terrific wines (good value, all Mexican, all delicious) and also good service. Nice view too, in stylish, modern surroundings.

“Ate here twice and it's kind of hit or miss.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

We had our boat in the Coral Marina and ate here twice with guests.

It's a lovely property and the service is excellent.

We had a variety of foods. Some were very good (steak, seafood). Some was terrible (Mexican dishes).

There is a $6.50 corkage fee for the wines they sell and inexplicably a tip was added to the bill for a party of 4 and nothing was said to indicate that this had been done. Hmm…...

It's not inexpensive and it's a taxi ride from downtown, but it's nice if you are staying up there.

There are much better restaurants in the area, from what we have been told.

“Large menu, great food and service every time.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

We are regulars here, I love this restaurant. The soups are all amazing. Burgers are spiced up and very tasty. Fajitas, fish tacos, and salads all great. This place is also known for it's great (and huge) Sunday buffet. View overlooks pool, marina and the ocean.
