We were staying at La Jolla Real for the weekend and Ajenjo is just a few steps away. Not to mention it has gotten great reviews; all of which are clearly deserved. The place is deceiving from the outside, think "strip mall." But once inside the front doors that all changes. Staff is quick to greet and helpful. The food was outstanding. Not that it's important for "foodies" but the inside is super clean and decorated very upscale.
I had to get the lobster burrito based on all the positive reviews and I was not disappointed. My wife got the yellow fin tuna, which was well presented, flavorful, and cooked perfect. There were several items on the menu we will be trying in the future. We are building next door at La Jolla Excellence so expect to visit Ajenjo many times in the future.
As other's have pointed out Ajenjo can be a little more expensive than other locations. But you have to keep in mind this is Rosarito "fine dining" and not a taco stand. We had two very nice dinners and two cocktails. Plus, our waiter convinced us to try the tortilla soup, which was a great recommendation. The presentation for the soup was five star, not to mention it was large portions, and nicely flavored. For all that it was $48 including tip.
