Wonderful roaring fire, good entertainment and service. The owners are lovely folks. But the food - that's another story. Soup and salad yummy but the main course was terrible. Worst french fries I've every had and the fish was inedible. To be fair, my dinner companions who had the lobster dinner were happy but my meal and my husbands were...

We visited the La Fonda Restaurant on a Cruise Ship Tour. We started with a great Margarita and went for a second one, accompanied with homemade salsa and corn chips. We ordered calamary and had plenty of time to enjoy the food and drinks and the superb view of the Ocean. A cosy atmosphere in a typical Mexican restaurant. There...

Checked out La Fonda on Sunday around 11 am and the place was packed! There was a buffet with all you can drink Bloody Mary's which seem to be the popular item of the day. My boyfriend and I opted for the regular lunch menu which was great! He ordered the lobster stuffed shrimp, I had the swordfish, an order...

We stopped for a breakfast here and it was very good and reasonable and the view was gorgeous. We are traveling with our service dog and had no problems bringing her out on deck with us. We even spotted a whale. Staff was great happy and welcoming would have no problem going back or even staying at hotel.

Service here is always first rate and i have never been disappointed with a meal here. If you get cold you can ask your server for a blanket. Again the...

Our friends wanted to stop at La Fonda on our way down to Ensenada. We didn't know what to expect. It turned out to be glorious. There is a small hotel built cliff side overlooking the Pacific and a very charming/romantic restaurant with a perfect view of the beach and the water. The day we were there was a Friday...

I've been coming here for a while now, and felt guilty for not giving Sarah and Dmitry props for the perfect little reprieve they've cultivated at the Original La Fonda over the years. If you are looking for a resort feel or get bent over little imperfections, please mosey on down or up the road, so the vacancy sign will...

This place is amazing for an evening dinner at sunset. The owner is a fantastic host, the food exquisite, the staff friendly, and the views magnificent. They had live music and dancing with a well stocked bar. Look forward to returning!
