Probably best dramatic ocean views in all of Ensenada. Nice ambiance. Friendly and helpful staff. However the food was just above average ... essentially paying for the location. The menu selections were dated and reflected very little of the Baja-Med cuisine available in the area.

This is a terrific restaurant to celebrate a Special Occasion. It is built right on the rocks and the waves splash against the window on a regular basis. Some nights they have romantic guitarists. It is a short drive north of downtown (TA map is wrong again), and plenty of parking. Linen table cloths, xlnt service, and beautiful presentations. The rabbit salad was delicious. The abalone in the Chorizo/Abalone salad was overwhelmed by the Chorizo but still tasted wonderful. We split the fresh-caught local Halibut, nicely spiced with garlic. The chocoate desert, Doble Fantasia de Chocolate, was scrumptious, and one of the best deserts we've ever had. For four drinks (two champagnes two wines), two appetizers, split entree, nicely split desert, our bill was seventy-five USD before tip. We plan to visit every time we're in Ensenada, if only to sit at the bar at sunset and enjoy the view and the ambience (and you should also).

Ate my birthday meal here at the best tBle in the house, waves lapping at my feet, rocky formations and sweeping coastal views were breathtaking. The fresh local fare was delicious, creative, generous portions, and featured Mexican-coastal cuisine paired with Baja's own spectacular wine. Attentive staff with unobtrusive and impeccable timing made it even better.

This is my favorite restaurant in Ensenada. My husband and I have a home in Cibola del Mar, Ensenada and sometimes we just want a place to relax and enjoy the best of Ensenada. Punto Morro Resort Restaurant is just such a place. We were there yesterday and were reminded why, with all the fabulous restaurants in Ensenada, we dine here at least once each visit. The restaurant is adjacent to the resort with spectacular ocean views. It has local and international cuisine and often has a seasonal menu. The staff will also sincerely welcome you for drinks and appetizers in the bar area just as you enter the restaurant. While I absolutely love the menu choices, the preparation, presentation and the taste, the service is excellent. Attentive, but not obtrusive. The wine list is extensive and somewhat pricey, but not unreasonable. You can get a decent bottle of wine for a fair price. The views are to die for. The pictures previously posted do not do the views justice so I didn't even try. If dining or making reservations for two, request the table for two in the right corner of the dining room. Saw some of the previous reviews regarding the prices, guess it depends on where you live. We also live in southern California so we find the prices reasonable. A final note, the restrooms are immaculate and regularly monitored for cleanliness.

This is the place that used to be great and went downhill from there. The food is Fort Lauderdale tourist quality with New York prices. Go to Sanos instead !!!!
