Hidden gem

This place is a hidden gem in El Pescadero. And the trip is well worth finding it. Service was superb. The drinks were excellent. The sushi was creative. And I had the best crab ever for $130 pesos. Thumbs up!

Food is really good but too expensive Not the right atmosphere for the amount when the bill comes Drinks are creative and yummy but again too high priced to make this a regular spot to dine

We frequent this area once a year, and admittedly, we do keep coming back to Carlito's. The seafood is fresh, the flavors are good, and it's a delightful dinner - from the garden atmosphere to Maggie & King Kong, the resident Frenchie & Pug. We know what we like and what to expect, when it comes to the cost. It's... More

We were warmly greeted upon arrival to this lovely garden setting by the resident dogs Taco and King Kong followed by Andres and the rest of the staff. Andres provided wonderful service - he had great suggestions, showed us the variety of fresh fish he had to offer, and was on point but still gave us privacy to enjoy our... More

We enjoyed Carlitos so much we ate there twice in our brief stay in the area. Both times we let Carlito design our meal rather than order off the menu, and both times we enjoyed a creative and succulent mix of sushi and cooked fish. Don't miss out on the stuffed banana peppers! As good as the food is the... More

Ate here twice on our trip. Not the cheapest meal, but you get what you pay for. Quirky little location eating under the stars. Food was phenomenal! The freshest seafood expertly prepared and exquisitely served.

I just came back from a Sunday lunch at Carlito's Place. This is a special place. We were greeted by Andres Bedolla Duran who made the afternoon a delight. He guided us through the menu which is incredible. All the fish is fresh and right out of the ocean. He was assisted by Maria who was super friendly. The food... More

Not easy to find. Not cheap. Sushi is delicious! I can't remember the tolls that we ordered but the grilled shrimp on the side was soo good, they were also nice enough to accommodate substitutions. There aren't many rolls to chose from but the three that we chose rocked.
