    Swordfish sandwich is crazy. Highly recommend. Lemon butter halibut salad is also good but ask for sourdough slices or it's not filling.

    Their sandwiches are good, but a grilled fish was dry. Not impressed.

    Mussels are not good at all. Good poke. Oysters are good but too big and 30% of them were not well opened.

    Incredible swordfish sandwich but avoid this place at all cost when it's busy. First-come-first-serve doesn't work when you serve wine and beer. It's a disaster to find a table.

    Solid dinner spot right near the beach in La Jolla. Super fresh fish. Grab an early dinner and watch the sun set on the beach nearby.

    Amazing place! Choose your seafood from a huge selection in the open counter. They help you choose how best to cook it. Best tuna of my life! Seriously. Very helpful staff.

    Just-plucked seafood and unfussy, simple preparations make El Pescador a winner. Hopefully, none of that will change with the market and cafe's move and expansion. [Eater 38 Member]
