Last night four of us went to Sbicca for happy hour. The food was excellent and the prices low. It is the best happy hour menu I have encountered. My wife and I split a burger with sweet potato fries. We also had a spring roll and a crab cake. My Stella was three dollars.we sat on an outdoor deck... More

SBicca is located on trendy 15th St. in Delmar, CA. The restaurant is in an older, sea town building with a patio, bar, alleyway with small tables, a couple of dining rooms and a rooftop, tent-covered dining area. Every place is a nice place to eat but the rooftop allows you to watch the sunset over the ocean. Food was... More

Charming and cozy, however beware if you are seated outdoors along the left side/pathway. For those seated on that side of the table it is a bit like a freeway with all of the comings and goings and was very distracting to our conversation. A young couple seated across from us needed to get a room with their heavy handed... More

The concierge at The Grand Del Mar recommended this place, and it was spot on. Located about a block from Del Mar Beach, this Bisto/Bsr offered some great food. We had a mix of starters. My wife loves Brussel Sprouts and they offered caramelized brussel sprouts that she said were outstanding. Our adult son had the duck confit spring rolls... More

This place is great for happy hour. Excellent food and price is fantastic. Happy hour before 6pm. They have 1/2 price bottles of wine on Sunday and Tuesday. And the staff is great. Danny bartender super nice guy. I highly recommend this place.

An old-time friend of mine took me there for a Birthday lunch and it was a delightful treat. We ate on the rooftop patio, overlooking the ocean view. Our lunches were delicious, especially the desert - limoncello tiramisu - perfectly light for a warm summer day. Will be returning soon with another friend, who has never been there.

We only had a couple of starters as we were happy hour bar hopping but the fish tacos were amazing. Every place on the coast has them but both my wife and felt these for whatever reason were some of the best we've ever had. Huge portions. Sat at the bar and bartender was engaging and made us feel welcome... More

Had a great Happy Hour at Sbicca. Lovely patio and the bar and restaurant has a great ambiance. The view of the ocean is wonderful,as well. Service was excellent, the wine was perfect, and the warm brownie with espresso ice cream was to die for! It's a place I'll keep returning to.

Was in Southern Call recently on business and my business colleague visited Sbicca for dinner. The pork prime rib looked interesting, so I tried it. It was good, very good, but wish i had tried a fish dish since we were so close to the water. Awesome views, nice cool spot, and Del Mar is a little slower pace than... More
