We went with a friend of my husband who is from Tijuana. He recommended dinner to have dinner here. It was one of the best meals I have ever had in my life. We had a combo platter. The food was amazing and we had a bottle of local wine that was great too.

Very simply, food is excellent, service very good, the room is a bit noisy and weeding breakfast/brunch can get crowded with some waiting, but it is worth it.
