Tres Valles, our favorite. Valle Guadalupe is an area of big, bold red wines, and a plethora of great food. Check out Vinas de Garza for innovative, new styles of reds, and Corona del Valle features a restaurant and play area!
Allegro. It's up a dirt road, and you'll think that you're lost when you try and go, but it's so worth the goose chase. Giant, gorgeous, all-beef burgers and homemade potato-wedge fries, and beautiful, fresh salads make this lovely restaurant a regular stop on our trips south.
Cafe Tomas. Besides serving on of the best Baja Mochas that I've ever tasted, they also have a play area! I swear, if this place were in San Diego, it would be a goldmine. Parents enjoy their coffee while the kids play? Genius!
The standout WOW restaurant from this trip was Sano's Steak House. If you live in San Diego, you may have heard of this somewhat legendary Ensenada steak destination. Let me say, totally believe the hype. Friday evening, we had one of the most memorable meals of my life here, with a beautiful filet mignon served with a creamy, decadent mushroom sauce; tender ribeye steak, a fresh classic Caesar salad and Argentinian sausage. With sides of crispy fresh vegetables (nothing frozen here!) and creamy mashed potatoes, we were positively stuffed when we finished.
La Bufadora, a fantastic blowhole that is something to see!
