You couldn't do better, unless you were in Costa Rica. Probably not even then. Recipes updated constantly and consistently from Central American chefs. Enjoy!

I've been to Pescados about a half dozen times and find the food to be consistent and good. Last outing was for lunch with a friend and we both enjoyed our lunches. Did find the portions of potato patties and zucchini to be very small. two half dollar sized potato patties and two thin slices of zucchini. My seafood burrito... More

My 92 old Dad ordered oysters on a bed of chipolte slaw with Saffron potato cakes. The oysters were cooked to perfection. My daughter and son in law ordered the Mahi (or what us fishing folk call "dolphin"). My daughter thought it was too spicy, but my son in law took home her left overs. I had what they called...

We are very fortunate to have Pescados in Midlothain! The food is spectacularly fresh and the ambiance is perfect for being with friends. There are so many good things on the menu it is hard to choose. I had the fish tacos which were so very good with the pickled red onion. My husband had the mahi mahi in a... More

This is a small local restaurant that tries very hard to use fresh local fish and produce and they do a pretty good job with their short menu. Their whole fried fish is interesting and has a dominant presentation but is short on flavor. Service is OK. Not my favorite seafood restaurant but a good one to which I'll return... More

This is a yummy fine eating establishment. Although it is nestled in a strip mall, it carries a funky ambiance that works. The service is attentive and friendly. The seafood is flown in fresh daily. The chef executes each dish with care and the flavors mingle with imagination. It is more pricey than the average restaurant in the area, but... More

The servers were terrible/ immature. The bar tender who we found out was the owner was rude, disgusting, just acting like she didn't care about customer service or how her employees acted. Very unprofessional.
