“The perfect spot for excellent, fresh food with a "California vibe"!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

We had lunch here during a trip to the La Jolla, CA area and just loved it. One of us had the fish and chips and the other had their "AWESOME" french toast, and both were amazing and delicious (we shared with each other). We had a "corner view" of the ocean on the patio, so the view was great, the service was excellent, and the food was fantastic.

“Wonderful seating outdoors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

The fish was very fresh including the fried calamari. The beet salad was very good as were the fish and chips. We also had a ginger peach drink that was very refreshing. Great food, great service and great view of the ocean.

“Great choice for a fresh meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

We ate lunch here while on a family vacation to San Diego. We based our visit on the positive TripAdvisor comments, and we were not disappointed. Arrived around 1:00 p.m. on a Saturday and only had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. My two teenagers had the fish and chips and loved it. I took a bite and the batter was excellent - light and crunchy - and the fish was fresh. I had the farmers market omelet and it was fantastic - very fresh and the flavorful. The potatoes that were served with the omelet were tasty. My oldest son had the fish tacos, which he found to be a little spicy (he likes his food mild), but good. The restaurant is small, but has a great feel to it. They have indoor and outdoor seating. We took the first available table, which was inside, and it gave us a chance to see the nice decor. Service was great and everyone was friendly. We highly recommend this restaurant.

great meal, nice staff, good location.
We enjoyed the menu selection. Music is way too loud for a beach view peaceful setting.
