Although called a seafood restaurant, about half the menu entries are seafood. The rest are a mix of other foods, so the menu although small has quite a variety. The emphasis is on Caribbean and Latin flavors, and its menu items reflect this very well. We had their version of a Cuban sandwich, which was different than the usual and... More

First time at Pescados--and they set the bar pretty high. Excellent waitservice with a recommendation for the special--a pan-seared wahoo on quinoa. Meant to take a photo of the plate, but forgot as I dived in. Fish was just a bit over-cooked, but flavor and portion were tremendous. Best quinoa in memory. Chips and salsa were interesting--blue corn chips sprinkled... More

We've consistently had great food here. Fish tacos, chicken burrito (not on the menu) and enchilada acapulco are good choices - all tasty very fresh. The voodoo shrimp has an amazing combination of flavors...if you're up for a little heat. A little more expensive than other local restaurants so tend to come here on more special occasions.

Wonderful food! Every meal we have had there has been excellent. It is a no frills local seafood restaurant with the best in town. We have been there many times.

The three of us ate here one Friday night in late July 2014. We chose it because it was less than a mile from our hotel and had excellent TripAdvisor reviews. Our meal was delicious. We had their broiled calamari appetizer and it was savory. Everything we ate was wonderfully flavorful. Our service was also superb. This place looks very... More

A very small restaurant in a strip mall. But what a find. Server came quickly with menus and took our drink orders. I ordered the house Pinot Grigio and it was just OK. The server told us the special and I ordered it..a wild sockeye salmon. Had it cooked medium. It came with potatoes with arugula pesto which made them... More

Caribbean dishes that were better than what we experienced in Miami, on Caribbean cruises & even actual restaurants in the Caribbean! Presentation is great but the taste is even better. Have to wait for a table? You won't be disappointed; it's worth it!

This is our favorite seafood place in Richmond. We have been here multiple times and the food and service is always great. Be prepared to wait for a table on a Friday/Saturday night, as it tends to get very busy

Easily the best restaurant in the Richmond Metro area, especially for sea food. They have plenty of wonderful choices for non-seafood eaters as well!

Last month while I was paying the wonderful town of Midlothian a visit, I decided to stop by Pescados. I've heard much about this place and the only time I tried to dine at this place, I was told the wait time would be 30 minutes, so I decided to leave. But on yesterday there was no wait time and...
