San Diego restaurants

I moved to San Diego in August 2010 and I'm no restaurant critic - far from it - however I have decided to list out some of the good places I've eaten so that I can remember them! Back in Australia, when someone asked me what restaurants I'd recommend I kind of just go blank... I'd be lucky to think of more than three practical options, and even luckier if I could remember how to get there. :-)

I've created this page to help me remember which restaurants I like and a quick reference I can load onto my mobile phone for quick access to the phone number and address of restaurants. Eating out makes a nice change from cooking and there are a LOT of good restaurants around San Diego!

List of My Favourite Restaurants

Name Phone Location Type My Evaluation


Miami Grille (UTC)


Westfield Shopping Mall (Next to Macy's) 4353 La Jolla Village Dr. San Diego, CA. 92122-1203


Description: Enjoyed the food and nice relaxed restaurant. Every Friday at (I think) 9 they have salsa dancing I believe, but haven't seen it yet!
Open: Sun-Mon 11-8:30, Tue-Thu 11-9:30, Fri-Sat 11-11.
Cost: Mains: ~$15 +

Regents Pizza


4150 Regents Park Row #170 La Jolla, CA 92037


Description: My housemate Will described them as the best pizza place in San Diego, the second being "California Pizza Kitchen (CPK)". It's a pretty small and basic looking place, but they do amazing "Chicago style" pizzas. Went with Vijay and ordered their biggest size (14") of Chicago style with half chicken and half a vegetarian and was blown away (was enough for three people). Be warned that the Chicago style pizza takes 45 mins to make!! CPK is also fantastic pizza - New York style only, but unique in that many of the pizzas are made with salad on top... very nice looking restaurant, always full of pizza.
Open: Mon-Thu 11-10, Fri 11-11, Sat 12-11, Sun 12-10.
Cost: Mains: $10-25 (depending on size)

Sushi on the Rocks


1025 Prospect #250 La Jolla, CA 92037


Description: Good view over "prospect" area and adjacent night-club, but seemed fairly overpriced and VERY SMALL meals.

Cost: Mains: $18-25 + tip


Il Fornaio


1555 Camino Del Mar Suite 301
Del Mar, CA 92014


Description: One of first places I ate at - good view of Del Mar (if you get a window seat) and very romantic. The pizzas are delicious and the prices are pretty reasonable considering how nice the place is!

Double Happiness


1011 Camino Del Mar
