Its in a fenced yard at a corner with country decor. When the weather is nice its a good place to have lunch. Waiters are attentive, salsa is prepared at your table and corn tortillas are hand made. Lamb is very good. Food is served hot and portions are well served (almost for 2 persons), Expect to pay over $30US per person.

My recommendations are: 1-Bring more often hot tortillas to the table. 2- The flavored waters served from a plastic bottle look cheap and not fresh (make your own) 3- Remove the dirty plates from our table more often 5- Hide the 42" plasma TV and big speaker. 6- Play more suittable music at moderate volume. 7- Expand beer selection (include handcraft).

Had dinner there today. The place is a steak house with a country environment. Nice outdoor sitting. Not a tourist place more for the locals that can afford pricy food. The food was good but not great. The service is very good and there is good parking. The salsa was prepared at the table, and the bread was excellent. A good place to go with a group of friends.

Four of us went to dinner here last night, it was absolutely wonderful. The service was fantastic from the start, after getting our bottle of wine, our waiter came to the table and made a fresh salsa table side, what wonderful flavors, fresh bread with an herb butter, a salad for four that was really enough for six. Then our entrees came, two of us had Borrego (lamb) with a fantastic smokey flavor, then I had baby pig (lechon) was so tasty and falling off the ribs. Our last diner had regular pork and she said it was very tender and very tasty. I can't wait to go back and have one of their steaks, all of their beef is from Sonora. All in all a wonderful dining experience in a beautiful outdoor setting, in a rural neighborhood in Ensenada. The Fresh Salsa added to the meat really enhanced the flavors of the meat.

I am big on not going to a tourist restaurant. I want a neighborhood restaurant feel. So driving around, we found this place. A nice outdoor restaurant filled with locals. You could tell that some were regulars the way the host greeted them. The bread they brought to the table had olives in them. I imagine from all the olive trees you sit under. I had the grilled flank steak that came with grilled summer vegetables. The food is awesome and i will definately be back if i ever go to ensenada again.
