Good Choice in Del Mar

Went for a casual dinner with family. The oysters were excellent, but the real star was the Baja fish tacos. The tacos are comparable to most dedicated taco shops. The burgers and sandwiches are also very good. Also a great view of the Del Mar race track.

A true gem tucked between Del Mar and Solana Beach. The food is fabulous. Service is great. The view is a bonus! Fresh seafood and unique local dishes always on the menu. Great spot for celebrations or a nice evening out. We've never been disappointed.

We always go to " The Brig" when we want fish, especially the swordfish which they do superbly. If you sit on the terrace, you have a great view of the Del Mar race track and fairgrounds.

Great spot for an afternoon bite. Even better during track season. Although the daytime activities here are awesome, a fine dining evening should not be overlooked.

A lot of people swear by the restaurant, but I thought that it was nothing special. Not only is parking a pain, but the food, service and views were limited to praise.

Lots of seafood dishes. I had a mix of fried fish, clams, scallops and shrimp and it was just the right size for lunch. My husband had the crab cake sandwich and it was really tasty too. Everything was fresh and well prepared. Plan on valet parking for $4 because there isn't much parking around.

Had some wonderful meals on our last trip to Rancho Valencia with 2 other couples including at Dolce Pane e Vino and Pacifica in La Jolla but my personal favourite was Brigantines.... casual, friendly, old California, comfortable. We had a great lunch including spicy fish tacos and beers and I would have returned for dinner but the ladies wanted to... More

We ate here last Saturday night, got there at 6:00 ~ missed their $2.00 tacos at Happy Hour but decided to stay for drinks and dinner. VERY popular place, as it was packed! We did get a table right away and got drinks & food quickly. The Napa Nachos are DELISH! I also had a 'Sparkling Pear' cocktail that was... More
