“Fresh, unique-- delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Tucked away just off of US 52 in West Lafayette, is the delightful Baja Peninsula. This is one of my favorite places to dine. Chef makes everything from scratch-- even the polenta. I am always greeted cheerfully--and staff always makes sure I am well attended to. The food is SO GOOD. Nothing frozen or canned here. The salmon with the buerre blanc sauce is a favorite- but I have never had a bad dish there. Highly recommend for a special occasion, or just when you want to kick back and be treated like you matter.

“Cockroaches!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Don't go there! Our waiter reaked of alcohol, and as I went to visit the restroom I was greeted by 2 cockroaches walking from the kitchen! Will never go back! They do a pretty good job of covering things up..just not that good if ur paying attention.

“Great food and quiet atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Food was outstanding ! All 4 in the family thought this was a great place and all said we would like to return again. Nice to have homemade items and not canned food service entrees. This was a first visit but definitely will make it a family favorite ! Waiter was very pleasant and friendly.

“Better food than expected, you may be positively surprised”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

We went to this restaurant for sunday brunch, I must admit first impression was not so good, with outdated decoration and old style tables, not very clean environment, waiters with oily outfit not clean look at all, makes very negative setting, However the food was surprisingly good, everything we ordered was tasty and cooked to perfection. Service was fast and efficient. Waiters were with nice attitute. Good food was overshadowed by the rest! There is room for improvement. Worth to stop by...
