I eat here often, and the food is always good. Its directly off the main Ensenada highway so its very convent and has good parking. Price is comparable to other restaurants in ESN of the same level. The house wine Ophelia is good. Its produce by Roganto. The service is good.

I would be willing to drive from north county San Diego all the way down to Ensenada just to eat at this place. Everything was delicious. I tried a couple appetizers and two different entries, and everything was amazing. Great atmosphere. Private parking lot with security. definitely in the top 10 places I have ever eaten at.

Inside is nicely decorated, clean, great food, menu and service. We sat outside in the back. Very nice atmosphere. We will be back! We tried lasagne and seared tuna. Both were fantastic.

The biggest disappointments I have ever had. Start to finish. Supposedly an upper end establishment, but it's a no go for me. The house wine was the worst of any of the wines we tried by the glass, and the pour was pathetic, barely splashed around in the glass. We had a scallop appetizer and there was barely a trace...

Ophelias is one of the best restaurants in Ensenada, year after year it keeps its great cusine, the seafood is always fresh, their house wine is very very good. Ypu just cant miss their aguachiles, ahi tostadas and Portobello tacos, their pizza is one of the best in Ensenada. Their house red wine is very very good and not expensive.

This place is owned by a young couple who really try to do it right ! They not only serve great food and wine (drink the local wines, skip the Californias) but they actually built the place with their own two hands. And they did a fantastic job! Theres a very romatic outdoor patio. You absolutely MUST EAT the lamb... More

Ensenada has several Blue Fin Tuna ranches, mostly for export to Japan. Nethertheless a few restaurants in Ensenada have access to this most delicate fish. Ophelia's, a restaurant in El Sauzal de Rodríguez in ensenada gets this dish periodically. On our last visit we had both a sachimi and a seared tuan dish. The tuna had been filleted earlier by...

Since I came in I realized of the great interiors and cleaningness, we ordered and shared an entree of awesome mackerel sashimi, it was amazingly fresh. We also ordered the sealed tuna in sesame seeds with wasabi sauce and I also thought it was great, it came along with a basil and tomato salad and some backed in amandine potatoes.... More
