We went here for lunch last week and it was very good. I had the Duck with fresh fruit and it was delicious. My wife had the crab crepes and enjoyed it.

In Ensenada for a couple of days- El Rey Sol, has been around for a long time. First, service was excellent, attentive, without being intrusive.
Ambience- ate inside, an old dining room that is like a old country club. Warm, comfortable, subdued.

Food was very good:.

Aguacate con jaiba, good but not quite great.
Championes con vino, excellent.
Langosta thermador, was done well, nice cheezy, creamy sauce.
filete de pescado con slasa veracruz0 the sauce was outstanding, tomatoes, olives, chiles- a little picante, but not very.. However the fish didn't seem absolutely fresh. Not boad- just not as tasty as I would expect.
Both entries served with steamed vegetables. (Fresh well presented. )
Capaccino to top off.
A comfortable, dining experience- but not quite 5 stars. (Although again- I repeat, the service was outstanding.)

The food here was delicious. We ate there two separate days for breakfast. Coffee was delicious and the sweet bread is a must try. Prices are reasonable, staff was friendly.

We went for breakfast. I had the scrambled eggs with fish. I was a bit hesitant because the fish was stingray but my husband assured me it would be good. We could have split it because there was so much of it! He got the scrambled eggs with squid chorizo. I thought the squid chorizo was awful, but he really liked it.
