Great place to have some local fresh fish

Great place to have some fresh fish. I had the dish that is presented. I must say in real live it is not as vivid in color but the taste is great and that is what it is all about.

This is a restaurant where everything is good. Only with the appetizers one becomes very well – all are regional specialties. The fish is really fresh and very well grilled. Don’t leave without tasting one of the great desserts. Enjoy!

Food was average and prices were a little high, service was unfriendly and it seemed like we were intruding into a local establishment.

We ate here as my husband was on a hunt for lobster. The food was delicious, perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. House wine was tasty too. Very friendly waiting staff. Worth walking a short way out of the centre for. English spoken, but attempts at Portuguese appreciated.

It's a very atmospheric place with nice sea-theme interior. The food is very good if you're patient to wait for it. We got the starter in 40 minutes and it was a cold octopus that didn't need a lot of preparation.

We took the grilled seabass, which was very good. With outstanding potatoes! We had a mixed salad to start with and a bottle of housewine. Perfect meal for a moderate price!

Went to Pescador during our golfing holiday to Vilamoura. They coped really well with our large party and I think everyone in the group was pleased with their meal. I had the Chateaubriend which was particularly nice but quite pricey. Definitely worth a visit.

Very good food and friendly service. Not too expensive. Other reviewers wrote about the quality of the fish not being the best. Still, the food was excellent.
