Rabas!!!

Every time we visit laredo we come to el pescador for rabas (and beer). They are extremely good. They are tender with a crispy light coating...the best ive had anywhere. The views of the beach, especialy at sunset, make it a wonderful place to relax after a long walk on the beach. We ate in the... read more

Location is brilliant, if you have to be in Laredo. The Rabas were wonderful but not any better than good fried squid anywhere else. Smokers in the eating area was off putting as there wasn't enough ventilation, and closeness to the sea would be great if you could see through the plexiglass...

My wife and I visited Laredo for our anniversary after a good friend recommended El Pescador. It is situated along the promenade next to the beautiful long and deep beech. I have never ever been treated so well in a restaurant. The staff were attentive and very helpful in guiding us through the menu. We ordered the grilled Langoustines and... More

An excellent choice off the boardwalk: very fresh shellfish, seafood, and fish. The clams were tasty. The fish was very well presented – a bit too big a piece for me. The bonito (fresh or escabeche) is too good! The desert (if you have room), excellent.

Stopped off here more by luck than judgement, looking for a place to take a quick break on the way to Santander to catch the ferry back. Managed to find a car park space nearby that would also take our trailer so popped in for a bit of lunch & pleasantly surprised. We enjoyed fresh clams, octopus & good salads.... More

I enjoyed a good, unexceptional dinner at El Pescador in Laredo. The set menus were quite good, and the fish was fresh - which is, after all, the most important thing when visiting a seafood place! Travelers should be aware that the address provided by TripAdvisor is incorrect: the restaurant is located Av. de la Victoria, near Calle Camelias (and... More

There are a lot of places to eat in Laredo but this can offer you a large and nice inner dining room which is good for a formal dinner as well. You don’t see it when you are at the entrance of the restaurant as it is facing the other side. Just turn around the restaurant and you will see... More
