I had the shrimp with cream and chipotle sauce. The shrimp were huge, and the sauce was absolute perfection. Highly recommend it. My husband had the shrimp with pistacchio sauce. Delicious.

I ate at La Morena the first time I visited San Felipe, and now that I live here during the winter, I come here frequently. I've never had a bad meal here and completely disagree with Ron P about the ceviche. I've had shrimp ceviche and shrimp and fish ceviche, and both were fresh and very good. I love deep... More

We visited La Morena every day during our trip. Sometimes even twice. The food was always very good, and very filling. Service was good. The owner already knew us, and our preferred table, by day 2.

Food was good ...the waitresses could be better in many ways. We had a bad experience with a hygiene situation with a waitress there not ours but she does or did work there. We did talk to manager and seems she was taking care of it.

I've never had ceviche so bad. It was watery and not fresh. The shrimp tacos tasted like they were cooked in bleach and were not edible. Too many places to go in San Felipe to waste time and money here. Nice view of the water and dog friendly

When I see a review like this the first thing I think is Hidden Agenda . I actually enjoy reading reviews, not all or great but are generally helpful. This Restaurant has won several first place ribbons in the ceviche festivals recently. When catering the one item which is asked for is the ceviche. That would not happen if the... More

The salsa was great but the service was terrible. Ate here once but 3 times at Mariscos El Guierro attached to the north and owned by another family member. Shrimp, octopus cocktail, and fish were outstanding at El Guierro. Service was excellent but salsa at El Guierro was too hot. The only thing better at La Morena was the salsa.... More

A perfect location on the Malecon...we had steamed clams,fish tacos, beef tacos and ceviche and if course Margaritas..Margaritas were good however not the best..fish tacos were wonderful and you can't go wrong with the clams. Beef tacos were okay..I think sticking w/seafood is best in San Felipe. The Cerviche was excellent. The mixture of fresh fish, shrimp and vegetables was... More

We visit San Felipe regularly, usually for about 5 days, and we always stop by La Morena at least twice per trip. It is a great place for breakfast, with the large open air patio giving a great view of the malecon and ocean. Very good food at reasonable prices, good service, great location.

We always have to stop in for a meal here when in town. The coconut fish fillet, chili rellanos and shrimp costa Azul were delicious. The enclosed portion of the restaurant is a nice place to get out of the cold weather and is a little quieter. Service was good and the prices very affordable.

Thank Dan C
