Karina's is not original, in that there are other Mexican restaurants that do seafood. There are also other restaurants that have their waitresses dress provocatively, like Hooters. The difference is the food at Karina's is very good, to excellent. The service is excellent and the staff is is friendly. I've eaten in the restaurant 3 times now, twice with my wife. We both had fun, and the seafood is really top notch. (Last time there, she had the calamari steaks and I had prawns with garlic sauce. Everything was excellent and we left stuffed). There were mariachis playing when we arrived. They were very good, although too loud. We were relieved when they took a break. That said, we will definitely go back anytime we are in San Diego.
