An excellent Italian restaurant helmed by a native Italian who left SF for Baja. Located a couple of blocks from the main tourist streets, the quality of food is impeccable and the prices very reasonable. Cash only. But note, the place is tiny....

A great go-to restaurants in Ensenada that serves until Midnight on Friday and Sunday, and 11pm on Wednesday and Thursday. It’s hidden away by the Naval yard, the first immediate right when you enter Ensenada. The food, wine and dessert are excellent and the prices are reasonable.

A roadside stall selling amazing Sinaloa-style grilled chickens, about 8 USD to go, cash only. On the ocean-side of the Libre in Primo Tapia, directly across from the large chain restaurant Pollo Asil. I tend to stop here on my way down to grab a meal to bring to the beach house.

One of my favorite restaurants in the world. Off the main highway at the southern end of the Valle, this is a rustic fine-dining barbeque grill overlooking a vineyard location, perfect for lunch or dinner. There is also a separate sushi restaurant, Baja Omakase, serving a premium sushi experience (at a premium price point).

A world famous street cart serving fish tostadas and cocktails; the cart was featured on Anthony Bourdain's tv series. They also have a sister formal restaurant, Sabina, but oddly the street cart is better, in my opinion.
