We stopped in at El Pollito Pescador looking for a quick bite and got a lovely romantic dinner for a pretty good price. Overall prices were competitive with other establishments in the area. We both had the fish burger (one with french fries, the other with roasted potatoes). The fish was grilled to perfection and served on a soft bun with lettuce, tomato, cucumber and creamy sauce. The roasted potatoes were perfectly seasoned. We also had the chocolate mousse, which was light and rich at the same time.
Ambiance was great - soft candlelight with lowered lights, a great breeze coming off the ocean, relaxing music. Friendly and attentive staff and a welcoming owner. A great dining experience!

Maggie and her friendly staff continue to serve excellent food at very affordable prices. Located right the heart of town, where all the action is. The chicken is great in what ever manner served. Tonight I had the Filet Mignon as a special for less than $9. Very generous cut with lots of flavor.

I don't care if you're not a vegetarian, the vegetarian hamburger is absolutely amazing. It is not a pattie but rather grilled veggies on a bun and seriously to die for. The service isn't the greatest, be sure to hold onto your half beer or they will take it before you're finished so you order another. Also, if you go in just for the veggie burger and they claim they are out, just get up and leave and it will mysteriously appear!
