Excelent food. The snaks, the pastas and the fish. Everything is good. Too small the place. Almost always full. You have to wait. No reservation system.

Muelle 3 is by far the best place in Ensenada to eat seafood ans shelfish. Their ceviche "Muelle 3" which is a blend of fish, shrimp, clams and mussel ceviche is unforguetable. Their sea food pasta is also a good choice. As there are only 6 tables and they don't take reservations be by 12 or 12.30 or expect to... More

We saved this restaurant until the last day of our Ensenada trip...and we are very happy that we made it. First off, the reason we waited was because the address/map listed on Trip Advisor is deceiving. We thought we needed to drive/take a bus to get here, but in reality, IT IS SUPER EASY TO WALK TO FROM THE MALECON.... More

It is casual, great menu and good service. A must if you visit Ensenada. Share dishes so that you can try many of their menu. Make sure when they are open. I have been frustrated by not knowing.

I read the reviews from TripAdvisor and decided to try Muelle 3. We were not disappointed. Located near the docks, the outside the restaurant can be deceiving. We were told there would be a 45 minute wait as all of the tables were packed. After tasting our food this made sense. The seafood was fresh just like it was caught... More

I have been to la manzanilla and the food was great so I was red to try seafood from the same chefs. My brother in law and I tried the pulpo huitlacoche, almohaditas de camaron and d'harina. The pulpo dish was cooked perfectly with garlic and salsa that accompanied marched just right. The shrimp pillows were amazing. Shrimp sautéed with... More

I have been coming to Ensenada for many years and Muelle3 is my favorite lunch spot by far. They have the freshest seafood in the city and a nice selection of local wines to pair with. Be sure to try the oysters and sashimi!

Delicious food and wine. A little Gem tucked in Ensenada malcone. Fresh and delicious spin on fresh seafood. Clam chowder was light and creamy i could have just had that. But than we had the tuna sashimi that melted in my mouth. To finish the course with a delectable yellow tail cooked to perfection. Great wine and desserts as well.... More
