Fodor's Review

This small, bustling fish market and café in the heart of La Jolla village has been popular popular with locals for its super-fresh fish for more than 30 years. Order the char-grilled, locally caught halibut, swordfish, or yellowtail on a toasted torta roll to enjoy in-house or to-go for an oceanfront picnic at nearby La Jolla Cove. Other delicious choices include seafood cocktails, ceviche, Dungeness crab and shrimp salad, and fish and shrimp tacos. Seating is limited during the lunch hours, and tables often are shared, but the food is worth the wait. Check the website for the current address; a move is planned across the street to a larger location.
