The map for this is wrong. It really is a drag to drive all over trying to find a place that is on the wrong place on the map. When I finally did find it the food was bad and the service was very very slow. I don't recommend this place.

I have been going to the halfway house for 15 years now. Johnnie is an awesome chef and a very kind fellow. I am chuckling at some of these other reviews complaining about price. In my opinion, Johnnie is a world-class chef. He is trained in French and Spanish cuisine and also has taught other chefs. We consistently go there as a group of 4 and spend about $100 on a meal with appetizers, steaks or fish and salads, or $25 per head. For the exceptional quality of the food, I'm not sure what price people are expecting.

Unlike some stuffy 4-star restaurant in San Diego, the atmosphere is relaxed and casual, but the food is every bit as good. The ocean views are stunning. This is the perfect place for a date, a family outing, or a group of friends to get together. The service is absolutely exceptional. I highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Northern Baja.

We came here for lunch but just ended up getting beers and looking elsewhere. Really cool little hole in the wall right on the water, but the prices are average to high for the US. The complementary salsa was great. Most dishes are $10-20. They do have a kids menu.

The Fillet Mignon in wine and mushroom sauce is unbelievable. The meat was so tender you could cut it with your fork.

I have made two visit the halfway house and have been disappointed both times. The first was last winter to attend a musical event by an exceptional pianist.... too bad the food was exceptionally BAD and service worse. In addition the fireplace did not draft correctly and the dining room was filled with smoke.
My second attempt was a bit better as there was no smoke, but the food and service were still very poor. I choose not to be fooled again!
