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. Around 100 pesos for a mojito that's expensive too and there is nothing new in the mojito. I have to say that the best sample was the... More

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".

I had heard great things about Manzanilla from my husband's friends and Tripadvisor. So my husband took me here on a Saturday for dinner. When we arrived, we made eye contact with a couple of ladies behind the bar. They didn't greet us initially, we had to ask for a table. They asked if we had reservations, we said no.... More

This restaurant is owned by one of the most well known chef's in Mexico. He is a TV personality as well. So we were expecting some of the best food that Ensenada has to offer. We were disappointed and found that the food was overly salted. Seasoning is something any great chef should have down by now. It was also... More
