Inspired by the coastal cuisine of Ensenada, Baja California, the new owners of Baja Bay Surf N’ Taco in Ventura Harbor Village are dishing up a fresh menu featuring savory  Mexican fare.  Entrees originate from their Mom’s Baja style home-cooked meals and her experience working in a fish factory in Baja, California where she shared her authentic recipes.

“We were inspired to open up a Mexican restaurant in Ventura Harbor Village because of our love and passion for cooking homemade Mexican food.  We dreamed of one day having our own restaurant which has now become a reality,” says Co-owners Rick Magana and his wife Christina.

Baja Bay Surf N’ Taco (one of 18 dockside restaurants at scenic Ventura Harbor Village) uses fresh, local ingredients in everything from the flavorful fresh fruit in their signature drink, Agua frescas, to the fresh catch of the day, including the eatery’s signature dish, delicious halibut fish tacos that are beer battered mix from a secret family recipe.
