Went here with my two children to try real Mexican food. Great selection of small dishes, which allowed us to try a range of dishes. Great service, easy to get to and very good prices,

Overall I liked the decor, ambiance, the place is in the small side and the parking is not big. Good service and very nice open grill where most meats are cooked almost next to the tables. The quality of the food is very good and the prices are fair. The duck taco was very good. Recommended.

This was my second time @ La Querencia and my impression remains the same... It is the perfect place to enjoy Baja Med food style. Seafood, duck and steaks are found here in a different and artistic expression. Worth trying this experience when visiting Tijuana.

Eating at one of Anthony Bourdain's favorite restaurants normally would freak me out but this restaurant is mind-blowingly delicious!! The fish tacos (tacos de pescado) are to die for and believe it or not, they serve tequila that has a rattlesnake in the container/big bottle. Never seen anything like it. This restaurant is a must-go-to spot. If it's good enough... More

We had an absolutely perfect time eating here for dinner. The food was so fresh and delicious. The tuna tostada was one of the best appetizers I have tried and the Ensalada Querencia was outstanding, chocked full of amazing shrimp and octopus. We cannot wait to go back and try more of the menu.

Great display of culinary techniques mix to create extraordinary flavors. Enjoyed the abalone shot, beet carpaccio, oysters à la beurre blanc, octopus and the beef fillet.
