We'd read the reviews. Seen the promise of exotic cuisine. Believed it was going to be a must visit place. And as we were local, excited. Always want a first class place nearby. And the result? Meh. It's was just okay, nothing special. Lots of mango in the dishes we had, so if you're a mangophiliac then rate it 5... More

We've eaten there many times. Just fresh, delicious food. Tasty cocktails. I highly recommend. So much better than your typical chain restaurants.

When you can depend upon a restaurant for its consistency in outstanding food, outstanding service, and outstanding dependability you have a winner. This was a remarkable week, one that required a celebratory dinner at the best restaurant in town. I knew before we left the house that Pescados would come through for us. On this visit my wife left her... More

While visiting the area a friend suggested meeting for lunch at Pescados. We have returned 2 other times & have not been disappointed. My husband loves the Grilled Caesar Salad & I recommend Voodoo Shrimp. Will dine there whenever we are in town,

Six kids and seven adults gathered for a special family dinner and were all treated to their seafood specialties, including one well behaved 10 year old who ordered a whole cooked Red Snapper. Our waitress and kitchen staff could have hardly blinked as they provided prompt service, including the special appetizers such as a tomato cumin dip with blue chips.... More

Not your typical seafood place. Excellent menu and the specials have never failed to impress. A little pricy but worth it. Lunch menu is smaller as are the portions. Top picks: Mahi or the enchilada for entrees. Mangoes for dessert.
