Outdoor Dining- San Diego Area

I'm visiting San Diego from New York City and am looking for a nice, relaxing outdoor dining experience. I'd prefer something on the water.
We have a car and don't mind driving.
Cuisine is open - sushi, seafood, italian...
Nothing crazy expensive - max $50 pp

Any recommendations?

  1. no view, but great food and atmosphere can be had at Jayne's Gastropub. They recently opened up their outdoor patio.

    Point Loma Seafoods is a very casual fish spot that's right on the water

    1. Lots of options with great views, but not necessarily the best cuisine. But good choices, maybe a little overpriced...but you pay for the view usually. Check out:

      Prospect Street in La Jolla, overlooking the Cove and the Pacific:
      --Georges at the Cove, and the upstairs, outdoor, more casual Ocean Terrace
      --Crab Catcher


      San Diego Harbor
      --Top of the Fish Market

      Others, of course...just a few to consider.
