portions keep getting smaller and the quality of ingredients keeps getting worse... the clientele has increasingly become chilango, young and noisy

We'd heard the food was respectable so we walked in to give it a go. At the entrance we walked past the large, prominently displayed sign announcing the restaurant was "smoke free". The hostess ushered us to our seat. As we got close to the table, we noted that wonderful stench and looked to see cigarettes burning away. The room... More

We had a very nice meal at Pescau. The restaurant has a typically (in San Miguel) understated entrance which opens up onto a nicely decorated interior courtyard with no ceiling, and with an artsy nautical theme. Nice bar, plenty of rooms between tables, at least one bilingual server, and a menu in English. We found the menu to be surprisingly... More

This place seems to have a Jekyll and Hyde personality. We encountered none of the negatives mentioned in other reviews. I had snapper, my wife had a rare tuna salad, and we ordered a reasonably priced bottle of wine. Service was excellent, ambiance was great, and food was delicious. The owner stopped by and was friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed it... More

The ambiance is wonderful, but the food is lacking. Bland and awful. The espresso martini cost 130 pesos!! I didn't order a top shelf liquor either...I didn't order any brand of liquor. You can read my full review at http://eatingtheglobe.com/somethings-fishy-pescau-restaurant-in-san-miguel-mexico/. There are plenty of other fish in the sea. You should go catch them.

It's a good thing that the food (Taco Pescau, Taco Estenudo, Coconut Flan) and the servers were excellent because the first impressions were so horrific that it was all I could do to keep my husband from leaving the restaurant. We arrived @ 3:30 on a Saturday afternoon and were told that we would have a 30-60 minute wait; OK.... More

Had lunch today at Pescau which is a local centro fish restaurent. The service was not great. Despite there being 7 waiters in and around the bar (and only 2 tables accupied) it took around 30 min for the food to arrive. The food was ok but not great. Last I was in this restaurent it was a much better... More

We found the service so attentive and the food so tasty that we went twice while on vacation in San Miguel. Extras were brought swiftly and various servers whisked things away unobtrusively. One of the best dinner experiences of our stay. We'd recommend it without reservation. I had a lovely octopus dish that was excellent.

The service at the door very poor, it took ages to have someone take our order, we didn't even get all the drinks until after the food arrived which was also so delayed that the first ones had already finished their fish when some of the appetizers arrived. The last ones were the children's dishes who were starving. The owner... More
