This restaurant does not offer something new, you can find it in any restaurant including with a lower price. I paid 900 pesos for two meals and honestly was an average meal. sorry! Like other reviewers said, " had higher expectations".

I had heard great things about Manzanilla from my husband's friends and Tripadvisor. So my husband took me here on a Saturday for dinner. When we arrived, we made eye contact with a couple of ladies behind the bar. They didn't greet us initially, we had to ask for a table. They asked if we had reservations, we said no.... More

This restaurant is owned by one of the most well known chef's in Mexico. He is a TV personality as well. So we were expecting some of the best food that Ensenada has to offer. We were disappointed and found that the food was overly salted. Seasoning is something any great chef should have down by now. It was also... More

This place is very good but not great. Somebody in the Valle de Guadalupe recommended it and I must say, the place is cool, the service pretty good, the food ok and the drinks really good. We were sitting at the bar and the bartenders were very nice and never forgot about us. But, lets talk about the food: I... More

We were very disappointed, had heard that some good chefs were at this restaurant. They were not there the day we dined.

Benito Molina and his wife Sulange, are one of the best chefs in northern México. All of their dishes are simply outstanding and original. They created this new "mexico/mediteranian" style that is simply incredible, this is a must stop in Ensenada for anyone.

We went with a group. My wife ordered the Sonoran steak and I ordered the abalone. My abalone portion was small, although nicely presented. The meat was pretty tough. Since abalone is not commonly available, I have little to compare it with. However, I thought it was average at best. On the other hand the steak, which was huge, was... More
