We had an excellent meal: pescaditos (breaded fish strips), pescadillas (fried fish tacos) and a shrimp ceviche (shrimps with lemon, onion and tomato), the large plate serves 2 people. The price was great, $350 pesos including tip and drinks. This is a place every tourist should visit for great food at the correct price.

Pescaditos is a small neighborhood restaurant close to Market 28 in Cancun. We would have had no idea it existed, were it not for two British girls that were on some of our trips and who recommended it to us. It took us more than half an hour to find it, not speaking any Spanish at all and having no... More

My kids and I went here for dinner and loved it. I got the shrimp/fish ceviche and it was fresh and so delicious. Big servings too. My kids got the garlic shrimp and said it was also delicious. It's a very small restaurant and easy to find (which is saying a lot). Service was wonderful. Would go back again!

I have been to Pescaditos three times now. The first two times the service was not very good, but we went back because the fried fish is very nice. This last time the service was just awful. We were completely ignored. We arrived and a customer sitting at a table with a friend greeted us. We later realized that he... More

We especially loved the chile rellenos and beer-battered fried fish. Huge portions for the price! The ceviche was a bit too salty for our taste, but everything else we tried was excellent. Great service also.

Loved the food, great fried calamari, only topped by the garlic shrimp. Staff very friendly and could not do enough for us. Got caught in flash flood, taxis off the roads. Great atmosphere in the restaurant and the owner arranged a friend to get us back to the hotel. That's what we call service! Dont miss this little gem

I took a business colleague here after reading the wonderful reviews on Trip Advisor. I have to say that I did not have a wonderful experience here. The service was inattentive and almost begrudging, not to mention slow. We ordered an appetizer of the aros de calamari, a version of fried calamari, before ordering any entrees. When they finally came... More

Someone at our hotel had recommended earlier in the day to check this place out. We were reluctant as we have always eaten at another restaurant down the street, family owned and operated since the '60s. To our disappointment, that establishment has closed their doors sadly to say. Ventured back down the street and thought we would check out Pescaditos... More

Easy to get to on R-1 bus from the hotel zone. Fun location, near local park with reasonable prices, good service and great food

This gem is tucked away behind the hustle and bustle of the bumping Cancun night clubs. The first time we came I had a seafood stew with a huge snow crab claw placed right on top. I've had seafood every time and it's been affordable every time! Be sure to check out their daily catch specials!
