My wife and I have been to this restaurant before, but it has been over two years. To our surprise the restaurant has been completely remodeled. Very fashionable and electric. Fish tacos is a house specialty and according to my wife the best she has had since our prior visit. That is one of the reasons we keep returning. Restaurant... More

We have been to two of the restaurants in this small chain. This one and the one at De Mar. Until now we have always preferred the Del Mar restaurant, because of it's décor and layout . We returned to Escondido this year to find the Brigantine there had been completely remodelled. Gone was the old dark wood and massive... More

The Brigantine has ben in Escondido for decades and it had been about a decade since we have eaten there. We went last week for Taco Tuesday with two other couples and found the atmosphere incredibly changed--open, airy, and bright. They have really improved the environment with a nice dining patio. A friend highly recommended the fish taco, so I... More

You've gotta make it a point to visit Brigantine in Escondido,CA. The ambiance, food, service, YOU name it. I'm sorry I don't live in Escondido. Brigantine is sure a great hidden treasure. Ask to sit near the window, comfortable view.

Great oysters! Had 2 dozen blue points during happy hour for $36. So fresh. They have a large assortment on happy hour 2 make a meal. The swordfish taco is great, blackened or not. Large spinach salad was enough for 2. They were also accommodating on sauteing the calamari instead of frying which was delicious! Nice atmosphere, great drink prices~one... More

So far we haven't had a bad meal at Brigantine. We always go to the restaurant in Coronado Island but yesterday we had lunch in Escondido. Our waiter Pat was excellent, he explained the menu and checked constantly how our food was. We had the fish tacos with a side dish of blue cheese and bacon potato salad and coleslaw.... More

We are regular customers of the Brigantine. We always start with a bowl of their very flavorful clam chowder, and then we have the grilled, blackened fish tacos. So good! There is a Happy Hour and Patio / Bar menu which provides a good cost savings, so be sure to ask about that and to arrive early. The fish tacos... More

We ate here with family for dinner and had a wonderful experience. The restaurant just underwent a major renovation and it is a beautiful atmosphere. The food is outstanding and the service even better. Highly recommend for couples and family. Not too sure about little ones though. It is more of an adult atmosphere in my opinion. Go and enjoy!
