I was in Ensenada for a couple days and really wanted to sample different "Baja Med" dishes. This restaurant was recommended by locals I talked to on the main street and it turned out to be a great spot for lunch. It was the afternoon which is really the lunchtime in Mexico around 3 PM. I asked about the fresh fish of the day and the waiter explained it was Corvina. It was a white fish. I said OK and also ordered a glass of the local Valle Guadalupe sauvignon blanc. The fish was grilled to perfection in the mojo de ajo style with garlic and herbs accompanied by rice, salad, and fresh tortillas and chips with salsa. Although the first glass of wine turned out to be "corked", I told the waiter who understood and replaced it immediately. There are lots of locals here enjoying either family or business lunch. If you are hungry for excellent fresh seafood in Ensenada, go to Mariscos Bahia and enjoy yourself!

Mariscos Bahia describes itself as a seafood factory. It is spacious and had a lively atmosphere on a Sunday evening with families and young children. Service was prompt and efficient. The sea food was very fresh and simply prepared - you choose how you want it done. The soups were very tasty. My salmon served with a garlic sauce was delicious. Unfortunately their calamari ranchero was a bit boring, smothered in a tomato sauce. Again, as seems to be the case in California / Baja California, portions were generous and lacked finesse.

The service was good. We ordered a couple dishes (seafood) to try and it was just ok. They had an endless stream of free street entertainers, though.

We had dinner here on a rainy Sunday night, so it was pretty quiet, which is what we liked. The restaurant is located in the center of the tourist area. The staff were all very nice. The food is all super affordable. Obviously, the majority of the food options are seafood. We were with one vegetarian friend, and she was able to eat beans, rice, and quesadillas. The shrimp dishes were all great, we had a la diabla, al mojo de ajo, and breaded. One friend ordered lobster and it looked delicious! We left very satisfied.

This was the best food with excellent garlic shrimp and rice was the best we have ever had. We tried another place and was disappointed. This place delivered what we wanted.
