I ate here with my family. We were seated right away and drinks and chips/salsa came quickly. The food was seasoned very well (abut heavy on garlic). All the food was just a bit over done, but still made for a lovely meal.

We decided to go in and try half the appetizers on the menu. The calamari is so good and the grilled octopus has great flavor. The drinks are pretty great also. There is a play area in the back for kids to enjoy.

Had dinner twice here with friends. You dine under a palapa with a sandy floor and plastic tables & chairs, but don't be fooled, the food is wonderful. Margueritas were terrific! Grilled fish and lobsters were consistently excellent. Also loved the grilled shrimp and pasta frutti del mar, a specialty. Limited desserts, but they were all good. Waiters were very... More

But if you not a fan of seafood, don't fret. The Burritos were enormous and tasty too. The kind of place where you can sit with your feet in the sand and eat like a king (but not too full, just delicious). Sold by the gram and I got a 250 g (8ounces) for $17 US dollars. Won't find that... More

Fresh fish and amazing unique complimentary appetizers, plus the welcome from Philipe is why we love this place. Plastic tables and chairs on the sand and gourmet marguerites add to the ambiance. The washrooms are always clean and there is a play area for the children while the adults socialize.

We actually ate here three times. It was literally 1/2 block from where were staying, and it was great, so why go farther? I got the catch of the day every time, and it was wonderful. Once we got the fried octopus ceviche as a starter. It was a lot, and one of my less favorites. I did get the... More

We needed a break from the all inclusive buffet so we ventured into town. So glad we did. The place we were supposed to go to El Merkarito - was full and we'd have to wait a half hour, so we decided to try El Pesquero. Just kind of stumbled into it. We liked the grilled shrimp - really tasty.... More
