Agua Verde Café


in U District

On the shores of Portage Bay at the southern base of University Ave, Agua Verde Café is a solid restaurant with incredible bay views and a menu full of fat tacos stuffed with lemony cod, catfish or portobello mushrooms, plus other Mexican-inspired favorites.

There’s usually a wait for a table, but you can have a drink and linger on the deck, or order from the walk-up window. Kayaks can be rented in the same building, in case you want to work off your dinner.
