Incredible food and fair price. Amazing place, bring a jacket when cold as it is a bit chilly (it is outdoorsy)

It's like an amusement park of delicious food: a taco truck with delicious carnitas + an upscale coffee bar + oyster bar + full on chef-driven restaurant, all open air under funky industrial corrugated metal roofs. The vibe here doesn't get better. Would easily take a daytrip from San Diego to enjoy this spot again!

Off the beaten path, rustic elegance in an open air dining room, excellent wine list. Renowned chef at the helm. Grilled octopus was exciting in a lime peanut sauce. Artisan pasta with house made chorizo was delicious.

Finca is located in the heart of the Valle de Guadalupe, the wine country of Baja California, and close to several excellent wineries. This is our Go-To restaurant when tasting the wines in the Valle. Outstanding views and excellent food choices. If available, get the grilled Brussel Sprouts....delicious!!

Finca Altozano is located in the heart of the Valle de Guadalupe. The owner, Javier Plascencia, is actually a well-renowned chef in Tijuana, San Diego, and Ensenada. He owns several outstanding restaurants; Finca is no exception. The food is creative, inventive, seasoned perfectly, and representative of Baja. Try the octopus, various tacos, cordoniz (Cornish game hen), shrimp, and pair everything... More

A small group of us were traveling with Baja Test Kitchen for Wine Tasting and then lunch at this restaurant. This was truly the highlight of the day. Very innovative food with great ambiance and energy. The service was very good as was the staff. This is a most "definite" place we will return to.

Just loved this place. Good for the soul. After a very long drive from San Diego and down a dirt road we found this amazing place. Loved the venue, the food and the service. It was packed with people, so obviously it has a good name in the area. I highly recommend it and will go back. Don't take the... More

We came to this restaurant at the beginning of our Mexican holiday and I loved it so much that I made sure to go back before leaving Mexico. The stunning view of the desert was so stunning that it moved me to tears.
