“Excellent food”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

I was in this restaurant with a couple of colleagues. We had gone from San Diego. It was kind of more expensive than what I thought I would pay in Tijuana but the food and wine were excellent. I do not speak Spanish and so, I was not privy to the names but the fish melted in your mouth and the appetizers were great. I had Mexican wine for the first time and it was very very good. oh, and while we were there, we were serenaded by a Mariachi.

“Must try, when in Tijuana !”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

This restaurant has a variety of seafood and game combined and cooked in what he calls Baja Med style. Sofisticaded cooking and incredible new flavors paired with Mexican Red Wine. Yes Mexican wine, sometimes more expensive and as good as Napa Valley's best, the Baja wine country is only one hour away from Tijuana. when at La Querencia, the Duck tacos are a must !

“Wonderful”
Reviewed March 21, 2014 via mobile

The tradition of fishing and hunting is expressed in this restaurant. A fusion that reveals the BajaMed cuisine.
Love the simplicity and the flavor of the dishes. Simply, delicious. As a Mexican, proud to find places like this one.

“Another misconception shattered!”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

I was taken by a couple of business friends to La Querencia for lunch and had one of the best meals I have ever had in the world and certainly the best in Mexico. Forget your idea of Mexican food being all burritos and refried beans. The BajaMed style at this place is wonderful. We started with a seared Ahi tuna appetizer and a pate of quail meat, then onto the duck taco and a shrimp taco. I didn't pay so I have no idea on the price but I will be going back at the next opportunity.

“Overall Pleasant”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

The parking lot in front of La Querencia is a little tight, and is shared with the neighboring El Grill. You park yourself, although there is an attendant. There is a blackboard menu, where I always look first, since these are generally special items. Sometimes the service is good, sometimes it is NOT so good.
