food/research suggestions for baja/ensenada - por favor!!!!

Dear Friends, they are a lot of great restaurants in Ensenada, years ago el Rey sol was a signature place to go when then Cheff, Giles Lefort was at front in culinary mastery using the products of the region, hes now in Puerto Vallarta as far as they told us, where to Eat, El Olivo just before arriving to ensenada on the right side of the south bound road, also hotel las rosas has a grat buffet on sunday, la Caprichos next to papas and beer downtown ensenada, our Sanos 3 times you out try number 3 was the same, the place was like a chinese fire drill, lites where not well oriented, dead ambiance no back ground music, only once in a while trios playing table to table, menu not real, you order a porter house and you get a t bone, no garnish unevenly cooked,no care for attention.

enjoy ensenada

Best Coffee/Coffee Shop In SD

Dear Friends, some time ago in Little italy, there was a coffee house/gallery named Gargoyle, the espresso was THE Best real authentic espresso, one of the Baristas told me the coffee brand was Portioli from Milan, and that he got trained by the coffee company person in San Diego and o yes this barista was making drinks like a champ just like what i lived in Italy during my studies abroad.
