Sit down Mariscos in Chula Vista area

My old favorite, Mariscos Godoy has closed. Can anyone recommend a replacement - great food, margaritas, a place you would go for dinner tonight with out of towners? Has anyone tried la Perla Negra, the Mariscos Godoy replacement? Thanks!

    1. What's going on with CV....Los Arcos closed a few months ago as well....TJ Oyster Bar in the Bonita section of CV is a good suggestion...what about Karina's??

      1. I think there is a Negro Durazo in Chula Vista. I haven't eaten at that one, but I have eaten at the one in Lemon Grove.

        The seafood was good, actually very good, better than Mariscos Godoy. Service was spotty and it was a bit divey, not a lot of ambiance. Prices are very reasonable.

          I've eaten at Negro Durazo in LG as well, thought it was very good.

            We had some really good things, but the whole butterflied fish one friend ordered was truly espectacular. She ended up taking a lot of it home and her husband made a tortita out of it for dinner the next day.

              Last time I was there I had the Pescado Zarandeado, whole butterflied fish, outstanding.
