This was my first taste of fish in Ensenada. Oh my goodness, this was the best fish ever! They said it would take 20min to cook but it was so well worth it. White fish cooked in aluminum foil with vegetables. A must go place.

A client recently introduced me to Mariscos El Primo Nava while in Ensenada. I had driven by this eatery several times but really never paid much attention as I thought that it was just another small cafe. We drove into the rear parking lot ... and as we entered the building i was "Pleasantly Surprised" to see approximately 150 people seated and enjoying their meals!
The very large and detailed menu offers every type of seafood meal imaginable! The food and service was FABULOUS. This will cewrtainly make my list as the BEST Mariscos in Ensenada!

Very friendly place, just a short cab ride from the cruise ship! Great food, especially the shrimp! Great for fresh food and good ambiance.

Filled with locals, not tourists. Fabulous cocktails--these are shrimp, scallop, octopus, and/or fish in a slightly spicey tomato juice. Order the small and it's the same size as the medium for a lesser price. The 'botanas' are large, almost a meal in itself. Haven't tried the fish dishes, but the seafood is excellent. Avoid the oyseter rockefeller and the baked clams - both are overly salty. Musicians wander through, but are not persistent or annoying (as in some other local places).
