I'm not a huge fan of fish tacos, I'm not a huge fan of seafood. But, for the past 3 days I have not been able to stop thinking about or talking about these fish tacos. I live in San Diego where you can get some pretty good fish tacos, but these here are so simple, fresh & delicious. They... More

Ensenada is famous for it's fish and shrimp tacos. In my opinion, Tacos Castillo makes the best Baja-style tacos I ever had. Definitely a must in Ensenada!

This place was a bit of a gamble as we just stumbled upon it. We had been on a cruise and was looking for more than just "cruise food." Luckily, the food was good (maybe even a "very good") and the service was nice, too. Price was cheap! I'd go back to this restaurant although the town, itself, is not... More

We had the fish tacos and the shrimp tacos and then had to go back and order more. They were simple and incredible. Their cabbage was perfect, the sauce they had was amazing and the fish was breaded and cooked fresh in front of you and was out of this world. A trip back to Ensenada would be worth it... More

This place serves great tasting tacos which we tried coming from San Quintin last week, October 30, 2015. I ordered three pieces of tacos and my friends ordered the fried fish which was big. I'll eat here again next time we go to San Quintin.

I recently spent three weeks riding my bicycle from Tecate to Los Cabos. I had fish tacos every chance I got, in many towns. El Castillo is the best I tried. They are simply amazing and I think about them often. The only downside to a visit to El Castillo is that other tacos seem a bit less delicious after... More

If you want good food, just ask a local where they would go. This place was recommended to us and just a 6 block walk from the cruise port. Our family devoured the fish and shrimp tacos, so good for such a reasonable price!
