Always a great experience. Very nice menu, with lots of choices. Virtually impossible to have a better experience than hanging over the water while enjoying great food with attentive service.

We went to the fishermans restaurant for dinner and it was great. We walked the pier first and talked to some of the fisherman on the pier. We watched the sunset and went back to the restaurant. It was a Thursday night and it was a little busy but we only had to wait 20 minutes for a table. We... More

This restaurant is located right on the sea above the beach with a great view. The outdoor seating (patio) gives a romantic touch specially during sunset time. Food mainly seafood is also good. Enjoy a morning (breakfast- they open at 8 am) or evening with wine and fish & chips. You will get refreshed.

Get onto the pier, take the right hand side for the more relaxed bar and snack side. we had a table outside looking out over the pier and pacific, watching a few surfers. Spent a good few hours people watching, enjoying a few glasses of Californian Pinot Grigio and a great salad

We sat and ate on the outdoor patio and were treated with not only spectacular views but also wonderful food. Service was phenomenal and answered our numerous questions and had some great suggestions for food as well as great things to do in the area. After lunch we walked the pier. Highly recommend.

This is one of our favorite seafood places, and when sitting outside, you can feel the pier actually shutter a bit as the waves hit the pilings right below your seat. You can also look down and see the waves crashing right below you, which is just fantastic. And the sunsets, just a fantastic View. I'd suggest putting your name... More

I'd buy their tartar sauce it's that good. And their fish batter is always hot and crunchy. One of my favorites. Well, that and the Dungeness crab half.

No trip through San Clemente is truly complete without a drive down to the foot of Del Mar street to an area known as the pier bowl. And no visit to the Pier Bowl is really complete without a stop at the Fisherman's - which sits on the pier! Restaurant on one side and bar on the other - both... More
