Cute romantic little bistro with a small menu. We shared apps and had salads with a nice bottle of Albarino. White wine choices somewhat limited, so better for red wine lovers.

After my third time at this gem I think it's tied with Nine-Ten as my favorite local restaurant. The menu is extensive, varied, and consistently good with generous portions. I had an inventive ahi special that I'm still raving about 3 days later. I've had...More

My wife and I (with our pet bird) make a point to always have lunch here when we go to La Jolla. You almost have to know where it is to find it, but the food is excellent (we both love the seafood louis salad).

This hidden treasure is so unexpected. It has a sort of English feel to it . The menu is wonderful and we have never been disappointed with our selections.

Had a nice lunch with a good menu - both starters and main - fried squash flowers stuffed with herbed goat cheese, frittata and the fitch's burger. A nice Sancere and lovely service. A good lunch.

Had a solo late lunch, sitting outside under cover on a gorgeous La Jolla day. And I got some work emails done thanks to their available guest wi-fi. What a treat. The lunch menu has numerous options and it was difficult to make a choice....More
