Picturesque Punta Morro Offers One of Ensenada’s Most Memorable Dining Experiences

Punta Morro

The picturesque dining room at Punta Morro Resort is located immediately adjacent to the pounding surf.

Situated on a rocky point near the northern end of Bahia de Todos Santos, the Punta Morro Resort has been considered an elite travel destination for decades. And, to compliment its reputation as a select property with picturesque accommodations and first rate amenities, Punta Morro’s onsite restaurant also enjoys the distinction of being a preferred dining venue that offers stunning coastal views and fine, gourmet cuisine served by an attentive staff.

The resort’s well appointed restaurant has been delighting the taste buds of discerning diners for decades.

The menu here is extensive, and features a tempting selection of classic as well as contemporary Baja-Mediterranean style dishes that are capable of satisfying even the most discerning palate. In addition to chicken, duck and locally grown quail, they offer a full array of red meats like quality cuts of Angus beef and New Zealand rack of lamb. But in this oceanic setting, one would be remiss to overlook their wonderful selections from the sea.

Of course a popular variety of fresh seafood such as lobster, abalone, crab, clams and oysters are regularly available, but one of their most lavish preparations is the Shrimp Stuffed with Cilantro-Salmon Mousse. Nonetheless, the grilled swordfish remains one of the quintessential favorites, and is regularly flown in from Cabo San Lucas at the southern end of the Baja California peninsula. Thick and succulent, the moist richness and lightly charred overtones of the fish are artfully offset by a mélange of petite garden fresh vegetables staged in a light and elegant wine sauce. A contrasting trail of brightly flavored raspberry puree offers the foil of fruity flavor, and adds to the decorative plating.

One of their specialties, the grilled swordfish, is a toothsome treat for seafood lovers.

The adjacent bar pours a plethora of domestic and imported liquors, premium wines and refreshing cervezas and offers a fantastic ocean view along with a warm, ambient atmosphere. On weekends, an extensive brunch buffet is on tap between 9:00 and 1:00pm and features authentic Mexican cuisine, which also includes a salad bar, omelets, pancakes, waffles, fruits, juices and an extensive array of mouth watering desserts.

The well marked exit for the Punta Morro Resort is located on the coastal Tijuana to Ensenada highway south of El Sauzal just before reaching the turnoff for the Hotel Coral & Marina. For additional information and reservations, call (646) 178-35-07.
