“Food was good (not great) but felt rushed”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

We enjoyed our fish dinner at El Pescador which was served quickly and efficiently. There wasn't much atmosphere and the service was rushed and impersonal.

“Wonderful food”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

We were introduced when they cooked up our fish from fishing. Truly fantastic and simple. Our 10 yr old even raved about how good it was. We returned again for our farewell dinner and had the most amazing grilled lobster, calamari , grouper, shrimps and stuffed fillet. Truly wonderful food and the waitstaff are great. So attentive to your every wish. This is a local restaurant that the locals pointed us to. Always busy but never a wait!

“Great location and setting, good food”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

We can confirm... yes the margaritas are strong and tasty! The food is very well priced and while not the most amazing ever, its very very good. We would definitely recommend this place and will be returning on our next adventure to Akumal.

“Good seafood and margaritas”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

Seafood was good, although they did not have the whole fish when we were there. Margaritas were also very good. Very reasonable prices and good service.

“Great food, charming atmosphere!”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

This is quaint little restaurant in the village of Akumal. We are a family of 4 with kids ages 10 & 12. The food was tasty and all of us found something we liked. It made for interesting people watching, as many locals were there as well.
