“Abalone at it's finest”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

Excellent service with great food. They will prepare your abalone the way you like it. Not very cheap - but we all know that Abalone is a luxury food. Haliotis is the Latin word for Abalone. So if
you like this type of food - here is your place to go. Also you will find good choices of local and imported wines as well !
I would recommend a visit here if you want to splurge a little bit during your visit to Ensenada !

“Excellent seafood and ambiance”
Reviewed 8 August 2012

This restaurant is often called a "local's favorite" as it is off the beaten path (i.e., not in the tourista zona) but it is worth finding. It is somewhat formal (white tablecloths, very dignified wait staff who have been there a long time, etc.) but we felt comfortable in our usual tourist garb of t-shirts and sandals. The fried shrimp were the best I've had in years and the cilantro dressing is very good. They have steaks on the menu but we did not try as it is mostly a seafood place. Been there since 1976 which is a statement in and of itself.
