“You shouldn't eat lunch anywhere else.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

Our hotel did not include this as a place to go, but it was rated number one on trip advisor. And now we know why. Everything was fabulous! Can't wait to come back one day.

“Beautiful relaxing view ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

Sit outside for the view of the pacific and La Jolla Cove. The food was unique and flavorful. We had the burger, fish tacos and the fish and chips. None were best ever but good food. The fries were a little greasy.

“best place for breakfast or lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Cody's had that small mom & pop feel to it. The food was excellent and the portions were very good. Indoor and outdoor seating is available, the wait can be a bit long. But id rather go to a restaurant that's busy than one that isn't. there's a reason it's busy.

“Fish & Chips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

Light tempura style battered fish, not one bit greasy. The hand cut fries were crisp and tasty. I wasn't crazy about the coleslaw, it lacked flavor. The tartar and sweet chile sauces were excellent. One order was plenty for the two of us and the kitchen split it nicely between two plates. The omelets served to a table near us looked wonderful! It's a bit tough finding a place to park in the area.
