Cevice on a plastic cup

Their grilled fresh fish tacos aren't as good as I hoped, but their special tacos were pretty good, and their ceviche was great! Very simple place, though - the ceviche comes in a plastic cup! I think that captures the spirit of the place: simple, but tasty!

Quick, cheap and delicious. I over ordered because I wanted to try a few different menu items and thought everything was great. Can't get food like that in NYC...

The meal was fantastic! We had the breaded fish tacos, the smoked fish taco, and the mixed fish ceviche. Our favorite was the smoked fish. The atmosphere was causal and funky. The service was a little rough, which knocked my review down to four instead of five. Overall, a great, fresh, cheap meal!

I was looking for some tasty fish tacos and I found it at Oscars restaurant. I tried the battered fish taco and grilled mahi ahi tacos. They were delicious and fresh. Cabbage, pico de gallo, and a slice of avocado on the taco was very good. I'm from Arizona so next time I take another trip I sure will stop... More

If you like Mexican food and seafood this is the place to be! The Grilled octopus taco and surf&turf taco's are excellent! All made fresh to order.

There is a point where Bird Rock in LaJolla meets Pacific Beach( gentrified meets yo dude)....in this wonderful area is one of San Diegos top contenders for best seafood taco. As this is a very tough category with some seriously delicious contenders, I can't definitively say this is the best, but it's darn close!.... As it's easy to drive by,... More
