“Huge portions. Great food!”
Reviewed 8 April 2013 via mobile

Stopped here on my last night in Ensenada.
6 of us went, 2 people had eaten their before.
If you like seafood this place is a must. Portions were very large and they're generous in the amount of seafood in each dish.
My wife and I split a seafood combo cocktail (medio) and it was large. I was pretty much full after just my appetizer.
Next most of us ordered the linguine Michelle. Which was linguine with scallops and shrimp, the portion was so large a few people split it, again there was a generous amount of seafood in the dish.
With beer and meals it worked out to roughly $200pesos per person. Which is great considering you'll leave stuffed.
I would definitely go back and recommend Mahi Mahi

“Yum Yum food..”
Reviewed 28 February 2013

We went here while visiting Ensenada for a week. Decided to order crab and lobster. While they were delayed getting lobster (didnt follow why), it eventually came and was excellent. The chips and sauce are VERY good (coming at the start of the meal), then we got our seafood - mouthgasm! But when they brought out homemade flour tortilla's and bread, they were the bomb. We finished up sharing a piece of chocolate cake. Oh - and we had 4 sangria's, which tasted great. The main reason I did 4 vs 5 stars, was the issue getting the food, but honestly, they handled it very well and the manager came over to take care of it.

2 people, lots of food and drink, it came to $ 64.00 us. We got the most on the menu, you could eat for a lot less there. Oh - and the beans are really good as well. We come from Oklahoma where texmex and places similar are everywhere - this had a very unique flavor and would go back. My rating is a 4.5.

Its located downtownish, near pappas and the yellow taxi stand. Tourist area.

“Best place to experience local fare”
Reviewed 1 January 2013

Right in the heart of Ensenada, this restaurant is recommended by many locals for tourists. They food is very good. I would recommend the fried fish dishes which are fresh caught in Ensenada and the civeche. Moderately priced and good for the family. They also have a nice outdoor patio with a view of the downtown area and they always have a small Mariachi band who will play songs for a buck!
