Finding this place is a bit tough, but it is right at the south entrance to the Port. GPS tried to drive us through the Port from the North, but we were turned around at the gate. Once we found the southern approach it is essentially the last thing before the southern gate, and not well marked from a distance.... More

It took a bit of finding to get to this place, but it was so well worth it. Just outside the entrance to the Port of Ensenada, it's in an industrial area with minimal signage, but look for the sculpture of an anatomic heart on the sidewalk on the north side of the street. That's it. The restaurant is spacious... More

This place would be remarkable anywhere, if you have a taste for fine food: fresh sashimi of rockfish with serrano peppers, garlic and raspberry vinegar; seasoned grilled quail with wild mushrooms, bitter greens and a smear of smooth potato; homemade tagliatelli with almonds and olives. This is not a typical Baja seafood joint, but a place to savor the work... More

This is a very complete and well done dining establishment. You feel as though you are entering a 1920's-30's era scene in old Mexico. From the decor to the variety of creative and delicious seafood offerings it has to be at the very top of the list for Ensenada area restaurants. The restaurant is located in a rather well concealed... More

Managed by top chefs Benito and Solange, Manzanilla is an excellent place to taste the great flavors of Baja Seafood. During my visit we selected the 6 course menu and it was delicious, all the dishes were well presented, cooked to perfection and the recipes are tasteful. Even though both chefs are now hosting a couple of tv shows they... More

more than 800 pesos for a six sample dinner that is expensive, no air conditioning in summer is bad too, I visited in summer and there were too many flies around our table.

This restaurant does not offer something new, you can find it in any restaurant including with a lower price. I paid 900 pesos for two meals and honestly was an average meal. sorry! Like other reviewers said, " had higher expectations".

One of the 50 best restaurants in Latin America. Food is mostly local and organic products. We orderd the 8 course tasting menu offered with and with out wine paring
