Fodor's Expert Review Agua Verde Café and Paddle Club

$ University District Mexican

Baja California Mexican cuisine and a laid-back vibe define this casual spot that's done up in bright, beachy colors and has a lively deck come summertime. Regulars swear by the fresh fish tacos and mangodillas (quesadillas with mango and poblano chilies). Be sure to pay a visit to the salsa bar. We like to wash it all down with a salt-rimmed margarita. Waits are long on sunny days (reservations are only for eight or more), and hours vary seasonally, so call ahead. Agua Verde is perched waterside on a street surrounded by quirky boat-repair shops; in the warmer months, you can rent kayaks at Agua Verde and paddle around Portage Bay.
