Fodor's Review

This low-key fish market and café in the heart of La Jolla village is popular with locals for its simply prepared fresh fish. Try a filet—maybe halibut, swordfish, salmon, or tuna—lightly grilled and perched on a soft torta roll with shredded lettuce, tomato, and onions. Other choices include ceviche, sashimi plates, Dungeness crab salad, sautéed mussels with sourdough bread, and excellent fish tacos. Seats are few, and tables often end up being shared, but the food

is worth the wait. Order fish sandwiches to go for a tasty oceanfront picnic at La Jolla Cove.
