About the restaurant
O SEA — a seafood restaurant of time and place in the historic Plaza district of Old Towne Orange, recently recognized by the Los Angeles Times as the Best Seafood Restaurant in Orange County. Something fun, something different, something fresh — O SEA is where seafood is headed. Think salmon ceviche in coconut leche de tigre, tuna poke in gochujang dressing, crispy oaxacan hot shrimp, west coast oysters on the half with thai red curry and tajin’d lime.

Responsibly-procured, best-in-class products, served consistently and at a value, with deeply craveable and seasonal flavors — welcome to O SEA.

We can’t wait to serve you.

About the restaurant
Established in 2006, King’s Fish House is Huntington Beach’s choice for seafood. Located at Bella Terra, King’s Fish House features a large selection of fresh oysters, seasonal catches, sushi and live shellfish, including lobster and crab, on a menu that changes daily.

We’ve been in restaurants a little while – three generations, to be precise. A long time ago, we embarked on a road trip in search of the ultimate seafood experience. We traveled down highways and byways, pulled up a seat, put on bibs and soaked up the seafood experience: the no-name dishes with unforgettable flavor, the fresh-caught oysters and clams piled high, the hand-lettered specials on ancient chalkboards and the savory simmer of every combination of spices imaginable.

Welcome to the House that Seafood Built.

Come gather with us, celebrate, relax and enjoy a seafood dining experience of high quality, comfort, service and value.

The customer service was great! From the reception at the front hostess counter,to the waiter, the the manager who stopped by again to say hello, make several recommendations and suggest a couple fun cocktails. We are here weekly because the entire establishment is run and operated so well. Thank you again for a great dinner Lemon and your Kings Orange Team!! Chris & Melanie

I checked in for my reservation. I was offered a table a minutes after. I was served by a great server named Eric. He was great. The garlic noodles was delicious. I decided to try dessert. The ube cake and ice cream was also delicious. Both dishes are worth the money.

Overall, it was very good. The food, service, and ambiance were great. I ordered the surf and turf, and it was slightly colder when I received the food. Otherwise, the food was well prepared and tasted good. The restaurant was very clean.
