“Overall Pleasant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

The parking lot in front of La Querencia is a little tight, and is shared with the neighboring El Grill. You park yourself, although there is an attendant. There is a blackboard menu, where I always look first, since these are generally special items. Sometimes the service is good, sometimes it is NOT so good.

“Great service and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2013

I've been here three or four times, the most recent to celebrate my birthday. Everything was great-they had a big table waiting for us (with reservations) and there was nothing but delight when the food was served-to all 15 of us.

Excellent place for authentic Mexican cuisine. Loved the food at this place and would definitely recommend trying it if ever in Tijuana.

“Way overpriced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2013

The food here is pretty solid. Its probably some of the best quality straight mexican food that you can find in the area. The only serious problem is that the food is almost outrageously overpriced for what you are getting. I really have no reason to go here when there are tons of restaurants that are straight up superior in quality for the price or on par and way cheaper. Also, although the food is pretty good, very little ever is outstanding.

“One of the best restaurants in Mexico”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2013 via mobile

I have been several times at La Querencia, I would really say that it is one of my best restaurants in Mexico. Everything in the menu is cooked to perfection in a very unique way.
