deckape- Red Sails Inn I actually never heard of before when doing my Chow research, so there's another one for the list. Thanks!

Thanks for all your help, Shannon. I wasn't planning to visit the actual restaurant in the hotel (I have an aversion for hotel restaurants, bad experience long time ago), but since you mentioned it's decent, I think we might just try it out!

Staying at Island Palms Hotel & Marina in San Diego- I had some questions

Hi, love these boards. Me and my wife will be staying for two days at the Island Palms to celebrate our anniversary, and I was wondering if anyone here could give recommendations for some really good eating places in the local area? Was specifically looking for good seafood/authentic fish tacos type places, as well as a nice guilty pleasure pizza type place, and also breakfast bakery type places. It will be a no dieting weekend! My wife works very hard (actually she's rather overworked) and rarely gets a vacation, so I want it to be perfect and I want to spoil her. I have done a little bit of Chowhound research and come up with a small list of places I was thinking about taking her- Mariscos German (for the marlin tacos), the Brigantine (fish tacos), Mama Testas (for potato tacos)- what do you guys think?

We will have a car, but would prefer it if the recommendations are near. How is parking in SD, since we have never been there before? Does anyone know of any really good food places (of any kind) within walking distance of the hotel?

Also, a friend recommended the area called "Sunset Cliffs" for the view, has anybody heard of this place, and is there any good food places in that particular area?

Finally, I might be wrong but it seems like Mariscos German has mutliple locations- if so, which is the best truck to go to (as we won't be visiting for long, and we'll probably only go there once), and is there easy parking available there?

Sorry for so many questions. Thank you in advance, I REALLY appreciate it.
