The good was great and the service was friendly and fast. I loved their take on a ribeye steak and their pastel de chocolate. The cactus salad and their mole were also fantastic. My favourite the coffee house - sweet (but not overly so) and flavored with clover. I so wanted to extend the stay in Tijuana just so we... More

If you go in the weekend be ready to wait for a table. The menu has lots of options, but if you are looking for authentic mexican food this is the place! All the food is delicious!

This place was great. The food was delicious and are server spoke perfect English. Would definitely recommend the birria as an appetizer. I thought it was a great value at $40 for two of us which included an appetizer, drinks and a shared dessert. It was a ton of food and all very tasty. The only negative we experienced was... More

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.

La espadana is a great restaurant to visit on vacation or just looking for something new. It is a short trip across the border, and great restaurant to finish a day of in tj. It is a family atmospher and not the typical revolution street food.

The food is great anytime you visit, they have great mexican dishes and the decoration is very authentic, the downside is that since is IS so good there is usually a wait depending on how late in the morning you arrive, but once you´re seated you're in for a great experience... Don't forget to order a coconut-pineapple cheesecake slice, to... More
