    As soon as we walked in we were welcomed by the host, which is a new host, the most kind and welcoming woman. We had cazuela de barbacoa and nachos de pato as an appetizer, super good! Our waiter Oscar was beyond attentive. Chef Ruffo was greeting the tables and seem very nice and approachable. As main course we ordered a Ribeye ( it was cooked to perfection), GOLD RUSH (meat filet with mash potatoes) my favorite dish of the night, the meat was sooo tender and full of flavor. I went with my husband as a date, it was perfect.

    I was in town as a companion to my mother who was having bariatric surgery. I had it myself last year, so I look for places with healthy and protein filled foods. Oryx is an easy walk from my hotel, and was better than I imagined it would be. The service was excellent and I felt welcome and at ease. The cocktail was delicious and the dinner I chose was a perfect portion for me. As I left I said to the hostess that I wished I lived closer because I would eat here all the time.

    Oryx is a fine, if unimaginative, offering in the Tijuana culinary scene. I visited with a friend for a special occasion dinner on a Thursday evening, leaving time for a visit to the backroom, speakeasy style bar, Nortico. Prior to dinner, we had cocktails that were strong and tasty but lacking in nuance. With a drink comprised of at least seven or eight ingredients, I found that it was difficult to get "the point" of it. (Not to mention that the finely decorated Nortico is by reservation only. My guest and I, along with the other guests in the room, brought the total to four guests. That, plus the bizarre music, was annoying.) Dinner was good. Even though the menu was disjointed for my taste. I get that it's a gastropub but there didn't seem to be any underlying theme on a single page that had everything from suckling pig leg confit (my selection) to duck "bacon" pasta (my guest's selection) to lobster mac n' cheese. Huh? Nothing seemed particularly specific to Baja California. My guest did start with a flavorful, smooth corn soup. My duck tostada starter was a lot of duck. Her entree pasta was good, but c'mon bacon. My confit was presented taco style, greasy but good. Decent offerings but nothing mind-blowing. The service was unfailingly excellent. The hostess, efficient and professional, was a compliment to the whole operation. The decor was surprisingly unspecific, the same exposed wood and ersatz abstract art that litters most of Tijuana eateries. Oryx seems to have all the elements for success but intentionality. From my readings it seems as if Chef Ibarra travels a lot (indeed he's headed to a Michelin-starred restaurant in Italy) and that probably informs a menu with such far range. But, just because you can do something doesn't mean you should. Oryx is fine for a good dinner, but I can't help but feel like it's a lost opportunity as far as the Baja California gastronomy scene.

    Oysters were bad. When I mentioned this to the manager, they tried to argue. Instead of taking them of the bill the actually charged me for 3 oysters we ate out of the dozen. My girlfriend got sick right after the restaurant.

    great ambiance and great drinks! We got a bit later to our reservation and they took us in without any problem. I definitely recommend their Pulpo (whether it 's in a Torta or as an appetizer). There is a speak easy that is totally worth checking out as well!
