This place is "eye candy" from the minute you walk in the door. It's a surfer-type motif with tv's playing fun clips. The food is quite tasty and reasonably priced. The staff is friendly and helpful. This would be a fun place to come with pre teen boys who are interested in all things surf. This location is close enough to the beach that it would be a nice walk if you're on vacation (or live in the area like we do).

We had not really understood that the place is really one like Chipotle where you take your orders at the cashier. Apart from that it is really cool and the food was great with very fair pricing.

Love the Hawaii looks. Love their Koluo Pig Bowl. Value for money meal, less than 10 dollars. Friendly staff.

We stopped in because it was highly rated mid-price seafood joint close to us as we were wandering near the Santa Monica Promenade.

Everyone comments about the fish tacos, and they're right about them - they are delicious. Large fried fish filets with pico, lime-marinated slaw, and fresh crema. My companion ordered the spicy version, and he thought it was very well seasoned and not so spicy so as to overpower the overall flavor.

The order comes as either a 1- or 2-taco platter. Each platter comes with beans and white rice standard, but you can sub in extra slaw, side salad, or brown rice for an uncharge. The sides are good, but when I get a fish taco, I'm primarily interested in the fish taco and not the sides. For the price, I would have preferred the option of 2- or 3-taco platters with less of each rice/bean side. 1 fish taco is a kids meal, in my opinion, and should be charged as such.

Skip the chips & salsa. The salsa is more of a thick tomato sauce seemingly from a can instead of the pico that they serve on the taco.

Note: they did have a special where if you download their app, you can get a 1-taco platter for free.

Very friendly and helpful staff. The fish burrito's were excellent - fresh and well flavoured. It is well positioned and within walking distance of the main shopping area.
