This restaurant is just outside the gates of Paradise Village, making it an easy walk for a nice dinner. The food is good, sometimes it is inconsistent. My favorite meal is the mista fritta or mixed fried seafood dish. It is the only one that comes with a salad on the plate, otherwise everything is a la carte. The breadstick... More

We ate here for dinner once while staying at Paradise Village. It is a lovely location and the service was excellent. We had lobster, shrimp and calamari. The food was delicious! We will definitely be back on our next visit.

I went here a couple times during my stay at Paradise Village. The food was always a delight! I would recommend getting the Spanish Coffee as dessert :) It is a tasty meal finisher as well as something to be experienced (they light the drink on fire and put on a small show for you).

The cuisine is Italian with a selection of seafood features. We've eaten in Il Pescatore several times and we got good food and good service. There is a full selection of wines (they have a Malbec that is nice). While you can sit outside and overlook the marina, we chose to sit indoors since we visited in July.

With an absolutely gorgeous view out onto the Paradise Village marina, the location is excellent. This is compounded upon by the incredibly friendly wait staff who are always very accommodating. Unfortunately, if you're vegetarian diners, your options are limited. Never fear, however, as what's on the menu can be adjusted if you ask and the various peppers and spices they... More

We ate here twice during our recent visit to Nuevo Vallarta. Both times, we had excellent service and outstanding, fresh-off-the-boat seafood with an Italian twist. This restaurant is part of the Paradise Village resort, and the dinner check can be charged to the room if you are staying there. On our first visit, my wife and I tried the Special... More

Five of our family dined at Il Pescatore on a Friday evening. This is a location off of the beaten path but alongside Paradise Village Resort, with which it is related. I understand that the resort owners personally dine here regularly. For our meal we were given the absolutely best service from the waitstaff in the Puerto Vallarta area. The... More

Highly touted, not too expensive, and thankfully so, as the food was just average at best. Service in the beginning was super, tailed off at the end. The portions not Italian enough. Selection not extensive. Was told by many to get the lobster, didn't have any.

Had a romantic dinner and they sat us overlooking the boats with candle light! Great service and food (recommend the feast for two). One of the waiters was even from our home city of Denver!
