Visiting family in Cali. This place is casual, a bit noisy (because it is SO popular). I had two fish tacos that were reasonably priced, well seasoned and delicious. The seasoning did not overwhelm the fish, so you could taste the freshness.

Good fish and chips. They also have their own line of bottled salsas. Be warned, some of them are HOT, but all have good flavors. Beer on draft, too.

Good fish, really friendly service for a crowded bustling place. Parking not great so if you're staying nearby, it's better to walk.

This place has the best fish burritos and tacos. it is close to the beach, which adds to the experience. The prices are very reasonable. Service is usually very efficient and quick. They serve beer now, which is a great add on. All the locals know this place and like it.

I like fish tacos. I try them everywhere. These were OK. Flour tortilla was a little stale and broke up. Fish was good but not much of it. Expensive versus some of the other places in town. Sauces are great but beware. Some are really hot. Little place with a counter and a dozen tables. Lots of locals as it... More

This restaurant is a couple blocks from my office so I eat lunch there often. Absolutely great fish tacos. Choice of fish, grilled, tempura, or other. I like it grilled. Sauce is remarkably wonderful. New outdoor patio is great on sunny days. Fast, friendly service.

My son and his best friend suggested Spencer's. Another good neighborhood restaurant, Our meal and a sample of dessert were very good. The service and staff were great.

Great fish tacos. I had the tempura, wife had the grilled, both were great. 2 minute walk from the beach and half a block from where we were staying. It is loud, as others have stated. We almost had to yell to hear each other from across the table. But that wouldn't deter us from going back again and again.

Right down the street from our hotel, a 3 minute walk, we decided to try it. It was packed. I had the grilled fish taco, my husband had the tempura fish taco. VERY fresh, delicious and for 12.00 we were full and happy. We will go back again.
