Costa Brava and Sea Rocket Bistro

Just returned from 8 days in Barcelona and adjacent coastal Spain Having severe tapas withdrawal attacks. I will be in San Diego (Gaslamp with car) in a couple of weeks. Looking for authentic tapas and very fresh inventive seafood. Non-touristy. Does Costa Brava in Pacific beach make the grade? Other recommendations for Spanish? Also, how is Sea Rocket Bistro?

  1. Costa Brava makes tapas-like dishes but if you look for something similar as you have eaten in Spain better lower your expectations very significantly. Unfortunately it is still your best option in SD for Spanish food.

    1. If you like Sushi (kinda falls into the sea food vibe) go to
      Akinori Sushi. Also the Fish House
