A limitless array of super-fresh fish and seafood fill this extraordinary market. The restaurant is crowded and is obviously a Santa Monica hotspot. Delicious seafood served quickly and professionally. Very good vibes with very good food.

I think the average of 4 star is pretty accurate overall. I would probably give it 4.2 stars if I could and here's why. Love the ambiance. It's low key, simple, clean with a hint of European like cafe sophistication. The seating is limited and...More

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
