This restaurant is the perfect setting for a romantic dinner and a pleasure for the senses. My boyfriend and I had the 8-9 courses tasting menu, local wine and a refreshing margarita frappe. Everything was tasty and the service spotless. It is possible to dine in the small wine cellar if you prefer more private surroundings or if you are... More

Visited for an anniversary celebration and I must say we where very pleased. The place is designed in a very modern concept, the menu interesting beyond belief and the 7 course meal was mind blowing. The chef creates culinary masterpieces.

A very good food with an open kitchen concept, so you can see how everything is prepared. Expensive but does not let you down.

Delicious Food. Great Service. Excellent Value For Your Money. Mexican Cuisine but not the traditional Mexican Food. This Restaurant has a High End Food.

Decor is nice, the wine list could improve with... More

In my opinion this is the most elegant restaurant in Tijuana... They contemplated every little detail from the architecture to the crockery... I recommend you go with the Chefs recommendations a 5 or 7 course dinner, if you put your self's on Manuel's hands you will not regret it.. Pricing is very reasonable (for a high end restaurant).. they have... More

Overall, I think the place is overrated. It isn't bad, in fact it is pretty good. Nice setting, good service, poor choice of music, a bit on the expensive side. They serve a la carte, but the chef can prepare a 5-6 course dinner for two upon request. Great fish, smallish portions: It's a place where you'll eventually come back... More

The food is very original and has lots of very high quality ingredients from the Baja region. Everytime I go I learn something new about all the rich ingredients that we have here in Mexico. I would really... More

Superb food; great service, espectacular flavors, and clean and modern locale. Will return! Try out the underground "cava" or wine cellar for a more intimate dinner or ocasion.
