This place serves great tasting tacos which we tried coming from San Quintin last week, October 30, 2015. I ordered three pieces of tacos and my friends ordered the fried fish which was big. I'll eat here again next time we go to San Quintin.

I recently spent three weeks riding my bicycle from Tecate to Los Cabos. I had fish tacos every chance I got, in many towns. El Castillo is the best I tried. They are simply amazing and I think about them often. The only downside to a visit to El Castillo is that other tacos seem a bit less delicious after... More

If you want good food, just ask a local where they would go. This place was recommended to us and just a 6 block walk from the cruise port. Our family devoured the fish and shrimp tacos, so good for such a reasonable price!

Without hesitation, he replied, "Tacos de la Castillo, corner of Juarez/Castillo..." 10 block walk, and there it was. Ordered half a dozen for 4 of us. From SOCAL,... More

I've lived in Ensenada for 7 years now, I visit this taco stand at least once a week, and I have never been disappointed. I take all my friends and visitors there, and I've never heard a bad word about it. Even from my friends who say they don't like fish. Give it a go you will not be disappointed...... More

Nothing is better than an Ensenada style fish taco from a sidewalk stand for less than $ 1.00
