The Fillet Mignon in wine and mushroom sauce is unbelievable. The meat was so tender you could cut it with your fork.

I have made two visit the halfway house and have been disappointed both times. The first was last winter to attend a musical event by an exceptional pianist.... too bad the food was exceptionally BAD and service worse. In addition the fireplace did not draft correctly and the dining room was filled with smoke.
My second attempt was a bit better as there was no smoke, but the food and service were still very poor. I choose not to be fooled again!

Chef Johnny is a very nice man but he has lost his touch where food is concerned. Has some good entertainment.

Had a great seabass dinner. Caesar salad was excellent. Chef Johnny sang for us after a concert with the guitar maestro Miguel De Hoyos performing during Christmas dinner. A good time had by all. Will make the Half Way house a regular stop.

On the border of Rosarito and Ensenada, overlooking the ocean you can find this delightful little spot.

With both indoor and outdoor seating set your palate in gear for a culinary adventure in flavor which will keep you coming back for more.

Not only is the food delicious and the ambiance warm and inviting, Chef Johonny comes out to talk to the customers. When I was there over the christmas (with my Mom who was visiting me from Ireland,) Chef Johonny came out and serranaded us Andrea Bochelli renditions in Italian with perfect pitch.

It's a well known frequented spot by those who visit or own properties in the area. It is very reasonably priced and it gets my vote to be nominated for two stars in the Michelin Guide :D.
