This place was recommended by at least two people, but we happened upon it by accident. We were looking for another restaurant, and the owner pushed menus in front of us. Usually that is a turn off, as was the emptiness of the restaurant, but the menu looked promising, and it smelled really good. It's is nothing to look at,... More

This place was referred to us by two different local people. The food was good - especially the coconut shrimp, chips, quacamole and salsa. We were there for dinner on a Wednesday night around 6:30 pm. It was not very busy at that time. The service was great.

We stopped here after a long walk. It was around 2pm and we were the only people there. Two more groups came in after us. Waiter brought out salsa, guacamole and chips. Very good! He ordered grilled shrimp and I had grilled sea bass. Both were very good. Our meals came with rice, mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables. We'd like... More

Fish filet was a poor comparative value compared to other restaurants nearby. Not fresh tasting, poorly prepared and relatively expensive.

Terrific clams, octopus, coconut Shrimp and dips. Not fancy but you'll love the food and the price. Momma makes the food in the back and she knows what she's doing.

A MUST!!! We previously came when our cruise stopped in Cabo and it was delicious! This time we came with the family on a week vacation and we by far had the best seafood here! We ordered the seafood platter, grilled fish plate, raw clams in the shell & scallops cocktail. Total meal with tip 920 pesos!!!

Stopped by for dinner, based on a recommendation from a local resident. The seafood was very fresh and the preparation was absolutely delicious. We had lobster, shrimp, and ceviche. Service was top-notch and the food was fantastic. Highly recommended.

We have been to El Pescador several times and the owner and staff are always friendly and helpful. The fish is ALWAYS fresh and they will show you the fish before they cook it if you ask. As for ambiance....family oriented....very simple surroundings but who cares if the food is great. We had the pargo (snapper) with garlic. OMG it... More

This place is a hidden gem-- El Capitan the manager is phenomenal and the owners so warm. Great Lobster deal. We ended up eating there twice in four days. Highly recommend.
