“Sunny oasis in Carmel Valley”
Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

Had Sunday Brunch here and sat on the sunny deck/patio. Being vegetarian, we went with the sautéed vegetable serape in a whole wheat tortilla. The veggies were very fresh and numerous wrapped in cheese and tomato. Very tasty.

During our stay some live music started on the deck which added a nice ambiance to the place.

It's great to drive a short distance into the sun and away from the hordes of tourists in downtown restaurants. Would thoroughly recommend the Baja.

“Wish I could go more.”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

My favorite thing I love about this place is the decor! I'm a gear head and the pictures on the walls and items on the shelves are great. The food and setting also cannot be beat. It seems that every time I go in, a celeb of some sort is close by. Last night I had an Acadamy award winner sitting right behind me.

“Fun Place, Good Food, Nice place for Music on the Deck”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

I have been here for dinner. I have been here for lunch. I have been here for drinks and entertainment. In all cases it is a lot of fun. It is not too far down Carmel Valley Road from Highway One so that's good.

“Fun spot”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

This seems to be a good spot for some fun, people watching, hanging out around the fire, and having a good drink or two. We were slightly less impressed with the food, but it was ok. The chicken mango enchiladas were great, the bacon wrapped prawns less so because of all the heavy sauce.

“Atmosphere better than food and service”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

This was just ok Mexican food. The atmosphere and patio area (with heaters) made it a fun experience.
