The Fish Market: "On The Border Of Solana Beach & Del Mar" Top 5 Page for this destination Del Mar Restaurant Tip by lmkluque

Del Mar Restaurants: 17 reviews and 31 photos


This is the third location for The Fish Market, a unique restaurant created by a sport fisherman, a boat captain and a gourmet cook. Which might explain the definite impression The Fish Market makes from the first moment one enters.

I guess, technically the restaurant is located in Solana Beach, but it must be just on the border, as it is across the street from the Del Mar Race Track--which is in Del Mar.

Not only a casual restaurant with a comfortable oyster bar, counter service and cozy cocktail bar lounge, it also has a full service retail fish market smack in the middle of the place.

I like their downtown San Diego location better because it faces the activity on the bay, but this might be a great place for you to stop after a day at the races.

Favorite Dish: Belly-Up to the Oyster Bar for a fun experience, is my suggestion.

Otherwise, seafood dishes of various types are the main offering here and they do serve chicken and meat as well. They will even create a vegetarian dish for you if asked.
