First time visit with friends, great atmosphere with outdoor dining. Fresh salsa bar, specialty non-alcoholic drinks and service with a smile! Fish in all shapes, sizes and dishes, mix or match, can't beat it! Great place!

great atmosphere, really tasty food. I had a very good shrimp salad, and my fellow diners enjoyed their white fish and shrimp skewers just as much. Will definitely be back on my next visit to Irvine.
