We very much enjoyed our meal. The sizzling fajitas are great.

We were very pleasantly surprised. Live nearby and hadn't heard anything (pro or con) regarding this place, so we had just dismissed it as a "tourist trap". Not so at all. Food was delicious and unique, service was excellent. We will definitely be back and will be bringing our friends!

Best Mexican food for local beach
Went there for Easter Brunch. Fat Fish food is great. Very affordable. We are always seeking great Mexican food as we eat it probably 3-4 times a week. This restaurant changed hands from a previous Mexican restaurant. The food is much improved with a more tasty food menu.
The staff/manager was friendly and the food excellent. Even their chips/salsa were the best chips I have had anywhere. I will definitely go back for dinner and lunch and tell my friends about it.
They have parking in their lot if you get there early.

The Fat Fish Cantina Grill’s
The Fat Fish Cantina Grill’s own parking lot made it easy to park in an otherwise busy area. Walking through the front entrance we sensed an inviting atmosphere and were immediately seated. Our initial contact with our server was slow and getting our first drink order took about 15 minutes on what looked like a not to busy evening. When the food arrived, it was very good. We started with chips and guacamole which was good, but plain tasting. We should have opted for the one that you mix at the table and add your choice of ingredients. We then both had the Lobster Bisque and agreed it could be the best we ever had and the Carne Asada Caesar Salad was also very good. Overall it was a very pleasant dining experience and we'll return.

Tacos and margeritas
Tried both the lobster and fish tacos - great choice! Excellent margaritas - wish our waitress had been more attentive though, we had finished our drinks before the food was served and she did not come by our table so that we could order more. Very nice patio (but it was almost too hot due to the extensive use of gas heaters)

We had lobster stuffed mushrooms, sea bass, and the banana fritter with ice cream for lunch on Memorial Day and enjoyed every bite. The service was quick and the food was very good. The weather was beautiful for outdoor patio seating and although it is located by the beach, where there was a lot of hustle and bustle, we were able to have good conversation. We enjoyed our time at Fat Fish Cantina Grill!

My husband and I went to Fat
My husband and I went to Fat Fish in Pacific Beach on a Thursday evening . They had 2 men playing music in the outside patio area. We really enjoyed the food, service and the music. We will go again. Everything was very good.

A great last-minute find
We were looking for a nice place to get some good food for us and our kids for our last night in the San Diego area. Luckily we found some great reviews on Open Table and decided to try it. The seafood combo I had was excellent, while the grilled mahi was enjoyed by my wife. Overall, we were very happy with the Fat Fish. We'll definitely come back on our next visit to Pacific Beach.

Restaurant close to the beach
They had live music-jazz on the patio. Very nice. Get the Shrimp posole very good. Have their own parking lot a real plus.

Rude hostess but great food
Good food but service was a little spotty. The hostess walked by us 3 times before she offered to seat us. The food was excellent and made up for it.

Ate here while on vacation. Very fresh and tasty. Had the seafood sampler, kids had fish & chips from kids menu. A fun and attractive find.

Great food, awesome house drinks! Went here with my husband on a quiet Sunday night. Great location, parking lot (which you don't always find in that area), cool outdoor area with firepits, nothing bad to say.
