The mahi mahi tacos were really tasty, but seemed a little over-priced compared to restaurants a little further into La Jolla. Great patio, great service, nice view.

Even on a cloudy day this view is gorgeous. The staff is casual and friendly, the magi magi tacos are beautifully prepared. Stop here to catch your breath walking up the hill to the shops.
