We decided to try this restaurant because of the Trip Advisor reviews! It was fun and the food was great. They offer a nice atmosphere and unlimited help your self chips and about 15 different salsas. The mango/pineapple salsa was my favorite. The service was good. We always had full drinks. I had the lobster enchilada and taco with chowder.... More

We popped in here to grab a drink before finding somewhere to eat (it was pretty late) they had free, help yourself Nachos and salsa and the staff were friendly and attentive. They were still offering food (but we opted for pizza instead) and the menu looked good and reasonably priced. Had we more days in San Diego we would... More

The seafood was fresh and the service was good. Was surprised that everything is fried. Had a blast and ate everything. The shrimp was a little greasy but the crab and lobster tails were good. The fish tacos are good as well.

We met up with some work friends after an event at usd. Ordered a bunch of apps & margaritas. Ahi poke was by far my favorite but others were also delicious. For splitting appetizers...I thought the prices were good. $13 for fresh ahi & avocado....that's a win for me! I do have to say the photographer was kind of annoying.... More

Went for lunch having no idea of what it would be like. Wow. What a surprise. This place was packed with locals as well as tourists. Really great Mexican seafood place with huge portions. Great friendly service in pleasant surroundings. Very busy, bustling and authentic type place, well worth a visit.

Rated 4 out of 5 and I can see why. The food portions were plentiful and the fresh. Try the fried Calamari, it was excellent and so was the fish and chips. We were a family not 6 and we ate very well for around $75 which is excellent value. The food portions are quite large so if you are... More

Stopped in for lunch when down at Old town walking around. We were craving seafood. The salsa bar is help yourself with a variety of delicious hot, spicy or mild salsas to choose from. The margaritas were great and tasty as well as the lobster tacos. Prices reasonable and service was great. Definitely return when in the area.
