Food, service, view, ambiance all 5 stars! Highly recommend this restaurant as it has a local vibe to it and is by no means a tourist trap. I walked from the Del Mar Hilton. I'm from Hawaii so it takes one heck of a view to floor me, this establishment has a gorgeous view.

Although not as delicious or spectacular (view-wise) as Jake's (also in Del Mar), this water view restaurant certainly holds its own. For a casual post lunch hour bite - sit at one of the high tops in the bar area overlooking the lagoon.

The Brigantine had the large table for 16 ready upon arrival. Great location overlooking the Del Mar scenery. Excellent service by three waiters. A diverse menu with something for everyone. Nice wine selection from inexpensive to OMG. Everyone in the party was pleased with the decor, food and service.

This place does an outstanding job of being trendy while still retaining some of the old standard menu items, all prepared well. We had fish taco plates, grilled swordfish and Caesar Salad with chicken, plus a variety of local craft beers. Everyone enjoyed their meal and then we devoured a Mud Pie wedge that was shamefully good. Plus, the Brigantine... More

6 of us arrived after a late booking and were warmly welcomed on a cold Saturday evening. Excellent service with full explanation of the various dishes. No starters but straight into mains. All had fish, Lobster, Tuna, Halibut were generous and all served with vegetables and potatoes and all full of flavour and not a morsel left on any plate!... More

We had a wonderful meal at the Brigantine in Del Mar. We have eaten here many times and never been disappointed. The fish is fresh and perfectly cooked. The restaurant and busy bar are always busy but the service is excellent and you never feel rushed. Glad they now take reservations so you don't have to stand in line. Highly... More

Every time I've been to the Brigantine, the food has been wonderful and the staff great. The views are just perfect, especially at sunset.

This is an awesome restaurant. Sit outside and have a view of the fairgrounds, enjoy well prepared seafood, drinks.... Don't forget to ask for their cheesy garlic bread - it's not on the menu but they will prepare it for you... YUM!

Thank ddinsd
