Stopped in for a late lunch with my family on a warm summer afternoon. Great food (fish and chips, cesar salad, ahi) and reasonably priced. The musician was a bit loud but would definitely visit again.

Our group of friends had approximately 20 women, and Beach Fire held three large tables for us on a Saturday night, even when part of the group was nearly an hour late. It cannot have been easy to serve that many people, answering questions and...More

Beach Fire is a great option when hanging out on Del Mar in San Clemente. It's less expensive than some of the restaurants in the neighborhood, but definitely has great food. The blackened Ahi tacos are superb and the Buffalo Cauliflower is an excellent appetizer....More
