Very nice

Brunch on Sunday. Our table tried 3 different kinds of Eggs Benny. No-one was disappointed in the least. Pan fried potatoes were really nice, and they pour a decent cup of coffee. Good, friendly service in an unpretentious setting.

To start off the staff is always friendly and welcoming. I am a picky eater but never have trouble ordering off the menu. If your looking for a great sandwich the turkey club is awesome, and the size is big. To top it off the turkey is real. Today I tried the ham and swiss Panini, I was surprised by... More

Every time I roll into PA, I froth at the mouth in anticipation for brunch at Pescadores. Depending on my mood and the time of day, I tend to go with breakfast. Huevos rancheros, eggs bennys and veggie breakfast burritos stuffed with bacon just seem to get me. If I order from the lunch menu, I ALWAYS go with fish... More

Had lunch with 2 friends and the food was VERY GOOD, we all loved it. The only thing that bothered me was the bathroom, it wasn't that clean, they had 2 glass containers on the back of the toilet that had non-descriptive items inside, one looked like a rotten potatoe and everything was covered with dust, it was quite disgusting....

One of the best places in Port for breakfast or brunch. The omelets are out of this world. The portions are huge, my daughter and I usually share brunch The prices are not too bad. Great service.

We happened to be passing through on our way to Torfino and stopped for lunch because of the quaint looking exterior. We were not disappointed. We were impressed with the friendly and professional wait staff and the quality of the food we ordered. We had heard the fish tacos were very popular and they were tasty (not New Mexico style,...

Stopped in for lunch and had the prawn taco with mexi-salad. Excellent choice, if a bit messy to eat! Prawns cooked perfectly and the mexi-salad was very good, lots of black olives and beans with cheese and tomatoe. Will definately have this again. Have also heard very good things about the eggs benny and plan to come for breakfast very... More
