Good food, carefully and artfully prepared. Great wait staff. Started with cypress like tomato salad. Waiter prepared a tableside salsa. Had Ribeye and pork ribs, both great and smoked perfection. Fun spot under the tree canopy overhead.

We stumbled in on a Sunday around 7:30. Despite the fact that they were getting ready to close, they welcomed us graciously, service was great as was the food. Tortillas were made for us on the outdoor stove, the meats were superb, and the grilled vegetables mighty fine (as were the margaritas).

No review, they were not opened when their hours said they would be. September 15th at 4 O'clock. The stated hours are 1 PM to late. Those big doors in the photo were shut tight. My and my wife walked about a mile or two on the only day it rained in Ensenada in months, very frustrating. Get it together... More

Visited several times now. Slightly off the beaten path, but certainly worth driving a few extra minutes away from the tourist zone to find some AMAZING food. Each time, we receive great service and great food. The queso fundido and arrechera are always a treat. What brings us back (in addition to the great food) is the salsa and the... More

Don Oscar, the owner became a friend of mine - my first visit there. He introduced me to his wife, gave me a tour of the restaurant, poured me a glass of wine. The place is on 11th Street, downtown Ensenada and i'll just tell you - you won't be sorry. This place is really nice.
