Having lived in Ensenada over 8 years I have had the opportunity to patronize most of the eateries here from the streetside stands to the top restaurants... and there are many. When I want a quick but nutricious meal at a reasonable price without the frills of an elegant restaurant I always choose MARISCOS EL GUERO for the fabulous SHRIMP... More

A very popular venue for a good reason, the fish is fresh and you really cannot beat it. It can get busy, but the wait is worth it for the fresh fish.

I'm usually really picky with food, especially seafood but this place hits it out of the park every single time! I first tried it in December 2015 and I had some this past weekend and it was even better than I remembered. I had tostadas of shrimp ceviche with octopus... Best ever and the cocktails are to die for! This... More

I'm not a seafood person, but I eat fish regularly. So I only tried the fish ceviche tostadas, and it was really delicious!!! Highly recommended for a cheap lunch in a quaint street.

I first saw this stand and a crowd of people as we walked around First Street. I took a pic because why would there be so many people around a food stall. An hour and a half later we came back to get our car and the food stand was still crowded. We decided to give it a try. I... More

I found this on TA and we decided to try it. Eating street food can be tricky. Unsanitary or wonderfully clean. This was wonderfully clean. We got there about 15 min before noon, as I read there can be long lines for lunch. It was amazing to see the food they put out from this little cart! Piles of fresh... More
