El Rey Sol

French in Ensenada

Set within an elegant building's sumptuous interior, replete with flocked wallpaper, chandeliers and stained glass, this landmark restaurant dates from 1947. An outdoor sidewalk-side patio area adds more Parisian flair. The cuisine is predominantly French (including escargot), but also includes Mexican favorites and pasta. This is a dress-for-dinner kind of place – don’t arrive in flipflops.
