Really good Mexican seafood, but it has slipped a bit

Whenever we are in Bend, my wife and I make a point of going to Baltazar's at least once because it is, or was, that good. Lately, though, it seems to have slipped in quality, which, I hope, was due to a staff shortage (2 servers and a line cook failed to show up for work, leaving the owner to... read more

I was really looking forward to dining at Baltazar's as I had remember the food being very good. Pros: Huge selection of seafood dishes. Chips are fresh, Nice atmosphere. The service by everyone else beside the owner is very good. Cons: The food is now way overpriced for the quality of it. When you spend $30+ a plate you expect... More

Wonderful ambience, OUTSTANDING FOOD, great staff, reasonable prices, margarita's to die for and Baltazar's is a dream. What more can you ask for? My favorite place to bring family from out of town and a great place to just have a leisurely, quiet and (unlike so many other places) non rushed dinner. I would highly recommend this restaurant, you won't... More

Had the chicken mole which was very good. Service was also very good. A bit pricy for Mexican food but it was worth it. The red salsa served with the chips was good and spicy. Beautiful decor

Balthazar is a wonderful seafood Mexican restaurant. The seafood is flown in fresh and the portions are large and DELICIOUS! The menu is large so it takes time to find just the right item to order. The service is good and the decor is modern and clean. The restaurant is off the beaten path for tourists but easy to find... More

Even bacon wrapped prawns were actually bad here. I would go elsewhere unless they make some serious changes.

Celebrated my husband's birthday here and the food was excellent and the service great! He loves fresh sea food and believe me he had a a wide variety to choose from, along with delicious margaritas. Our server was friendly and made us very welcome.

My wife had seafood tacos and I had the seafood rellenos - the tacos were good but similar to good fish tacos we'd had elsewhere; the seafood rellenos were very distinctive. Both were good-sized portions and the sides, while the typical rice and beans, were also above average. The menu overall is more expensive than other Mexican restaurants we've been... More

We live in the area, so being away from the ocean here in Central Oregon, we normally do not expect top notch seafood. We were pleasantly surprised. The shrimp were wonderful and HUGE and the scallops were fabulous. Everything we had was exceptionally prepared and tasty. We will be going back as often as we can!
