I went with 2 other people and we all loved our meals. The service was also excellent. The Garlic Shrimp (on a salad and in a taco) was cooked perfectly. The only miss was the fact that the fries weren't crispy, but overall it was a happy experience. We will return next time we are in the San Diego area.

Heard their fish tacos were great so went to try them. Spot on! All four of us liked our variations. Can’t wait to visit town again. Will return!

Loved the fruity sangria, bowl of seafood broth (chock full of seafood!), and the $5 and $6 appetizers. The waiter gave me several ideas for enjoying oysters on the half shell. My faves: a squeeze of limon, tabasco, and horseradish. They were so fresh and lovely!

Excellent Ensenada style tacos. The Shrimp Diabla was intense. Don’t forget the shrimp cocktail either!

The smoked tuna taco is so amazing!! The shrimp ceviche tostada is also to die for. You also need to wash that down with a Tamarind Michalada!! This is my go to taco spot in San Diego.

TJ Oster is the place to go if you want to experiment the taste of Baja California cuisine. The ceviches are delicious and the variarity of seafood tacos is amazing!

My favorite is tuna fries. My husband loves the aguachile and the ceviches. The 7 seas soup is also very tasty. Wish they had better wine selections but not a biggie as a beer is always good with this food.

It’s a small place that’s pretty busy, but definitely good tacos. I had a fish, shrimp diabla, octopus, and seafood. The fish was underwhelming, but at least it was cheap. The other three were very good. Three tacos would have been plenty, four is a bit much for one person.

These are the best fish tacos: lightly breaded, great sauce, good garnish, still $1.29. This is where we go if the family is hungry and it is off-hours. Even though they are worth the wait, the lines can be long and the space crowded.
