The service was outstanding. The food came out very quickly. The food was very tasty. My wife and I both tried the fish tacos. The cod and the prawn tacos were outstanding. We really did not need to get the guacamole with our tacos.

We found ourselves in Half Moon Bay driving down Hwy 1 from SF to San Jose. We were hungry but didnt want "fast" food. A quick check on Yelp showed this place with lots of good reviews. Lots of options on their menu and everything seemed pretty reasonably priced. My friend and I ordered an assortment of tacos. I had... More

The flying fish bills itself as an upscale "dive" and comes across as a very practical and well run fish restaurant near the half moon bay town center. Reservations were accepted. Ordered Meals were a shrimp skewer and gluten free swordfish. The Menu presented the swordfish as Gluten Free but the first bite revealed soy sauce. Upon inquiry the chef... More

beside reasonable prices, the food is very good. Drinks are inexpensive too compared to other places in town. Nice atmosphere in both the bar and the restaurant. We visit almost weekly

This is a basic cafe style eatery on the junction as you turn into Half Moon bay, it is simply decorated but don't let that foul you, the food is fresh, the fish fabulous and the portions enormous. Staff are cheery and welcoming. We had a great starter of fresh tempura Calamari, which was a good size for two and... More

The location is right in the heart of town so-to-speak. It is a nice place. Any place that advertises Fish and Chips demands my review! :) So, I meet the hostest and ask, "Is your Fish and Chips breaded here or is it frozen." She has no clue. Turns out, she refers me to a waiter or cook. Because, I... More

We decided to stop here based on other TA reviews and it did not disappoint! Fresh, large portions for the prices, and waiter, John, could not have been more precise in cheerfully delivering a combination of food that avoided my allergies. Great meal, really nice experience.

We may have to go back before our trip is over for the crab cheese bread alone. We were a party of six for lunch - the fish tacos, the crab chioppino, and the fish & chips were the best.
