If you love ceviche, then please go here. It is expensive, but you get what you pay for. They sell ceviche by the 1/4 kilo. I suggest the Campeche which has jalapenos in it. It is our favorite. They also use grape seed oil in the ceviche which might be the trick to their ceviche almost seeming creamy.

This place is right in the middle of the main tourist area by the pier. They serve great versions of some traditional Mexican and International seafood dishes, I especially enjoyed their ceviche and their pasta with clams. When we visited the owner was there and came to every table to assure that everything was to our liking, which was a... More

Since this restaurant opened is has been a roller coaster of freshness, flavor and service. Never it has reached the status of exceptional, but some of their dishes, have been rainging from good to poor. It's worth a try, only if you are in the docks área .... hope for the best.

If you like cevice and fresh seafood, then this is the place for you! From shrimp to octopus cevice, each has its own unique flavor. Oysters Rockafelle were awesome and mussels were cooked to perfection! The restaurant is cozy and the staff very helpful and friendly. The menu is in Spanish, but fear not, you will be guided through your... More

Based on the Tourist Board’s recommendations, we stopped by at about 7:30 on a week night. The restaurant was almost empty with a group of about 8 celebrating that night. My husband had the fried lobster, along with a delicious clam chowder. This dish came with refried beans (delicious) + rice (terrible). We also shared a 1/4 of a pound... More

Our trip to La Cocedora de Langosta was a result of friends taking us to their "newest find". The restaurant, at the entrance to Ensenada downtown, is on an off street. It is easy to find on your own or by asking around. As starters the ceviche with avocado (you have to ask for the avocado to be included) is... More
