Lobster?
Puerto Nuevo. Many places.
However, they should have them in Rosarito. There used to be an Ortega's Restaurant in Rosarito...?

Probably best to go to Puerto Nuevo and a restaurant like La Casa de la Langosta if you're looking for a more upscale place.

There is Restaurant de Langosta la Guerita in Rosarito. Google this to see what it looks like.

I haven't had lobster in the Rosarito area recently, except in Popotla, which is more downscale.

I would choose Vince's over Blondies

Thank You for Your Input


Someone was strongly recommending Sandra's in Puerto Nuevo.

I have never been there, any comments?

I am fairly sure that this information is common knowledge. But there are only two families that own all the restaurants in Puerto Nuevo.

That is the reason lobsters and trimmings seem to taste the same no matter where you go. :bounce:

My personal favorite is Villa Ortega's because I like to sit on the outside deck and watch the waves break about 20' below me. (Villa Ortega's is the restaurant with the large prop and a shark at the entrance, and is the only one that actually owns a parking lot for their guests).

I didn't know this and never heard it. I was aware that there were connected family running different restaurants. I remember the old days when Puerto Nuevo didn't formally exist and a few humble places were selling cheap lobster tacos.

It's certainly true that the Puerto Nuevo style of cooking has produced a sameness in the restaurants in Puerto Nuevo. It's been phenomenally successful and been imitated everywhere, even in the US. There's a street hustle for customers that rivals what Avenida Revolución used to be like before the drug violence in Tijuana.

I've eaten at a number of different restaurants there over the years. I'm hard pressed to recommend any one over another for the first time visitor. Pick one out by the atmosphere. And if it passes the smell test, give it a try.

Lobster often tastes the same no matter who cooks it. In the typical fashion, can only vary the taste with sauces. And really can't complain about butter, garlic -- goes great with most any crustacean.
It's super easy to cook at home, so enjoy it at home and skip the crowds and over-priced same-old-same-old.

After vistiting puerto nuevo, I assumed that "Ortega" was local word for "lobster" :lol::lol::lol::lol:

El Rosario is kind of a tourist trap, I avoid it.

Ensenada fish market, stall is on on the east side, sold from a bucket on the ground you point at. (Shhhh)

Puerto Nuevo - 1956 is a dual kitchen restaurant, the southern one is more formal, their smoked marlin is GOOD. Same waiters there for over twenty years, they treat you like a Patron, Try the Mexican coffee for desert, they prepare it old school style

I agree, I always order "al vapor", or in English, "steamed".

Just to be clear, are you recommending Puerto Nuevo I or Puerto Nuevo II restaurant?

Butter. Because they really aren’t very good on their own!

There are better shellfish that don’t require sauces, condiments to taste good. For example, Dungeness crab, blue crab,...
The baja lobster are just so-so.
There are better foods out there, so don’t settle for dry baja lobster that requires butter to choke it down!

the pioneers of puerto nuevo have always eaten their lobster with mayonnaise rather than butter, not surprising, to me anyway mexican butter is plain awful!
