San Diego - Fish Tacos near Marriott Hotel & Marina?

My husband will be in SD for 2 days for a conference. He lived there for a summer a few years back and grew to love fish tacos - especially the ones at Wahoos. But he thinks he might not be able to make it out to La Jolla for them this time. Can anyone recommend a place near his hotel (Marriott Hotel and Marina) that has fish tacos? Or even any great place, even if they don't serve tacos that he might like? He said it all looks fairly corporate.

thanks very much in advance for any help!

  1. It is fairly corporate. Tin Fish is within a 2 or 3 minute walk of the hotel, across the street from the convention center. They do fish tacos.

      Thank you so much DD. Are the tacos there good?

        Most people like them pretty well. There are a small number of people that don't. They aren't the best fish tacos in town, but they also aren't close to being the worst by any stretch of the imagination. They are very respectable fish tacos and will proably satisfy your husband's itch.

          Thanks DD. He's in the air on his way there right now, and may well stop by Tin Fish for dinner.

            I visit San Diego regularly and Tin Fish is a regular stop. Not great food, but decent enough and the ambiance is nice. patio, with lots of street stuff and plenty of action if the Padres are in town. I have had issues with evening hours, though; the place closes early and is not always open in the evening.

            Another downtown favorite of mine--no fish tacos--is Urban Bar. Definitely not corporate. Great pizza and a fun bar! I think it's just each of Petco Field, maybe on J around 10th. Easy walk from the Marriott.
