If these folks got their act together and made their space cleaner and fresher, El Pescau could be in the running for one of San Miguel's best. But, sadly, the place is in need of a thorough scrub down, from the awnings covering the roof openings to the chairs. Just feels a little icky. Some of the food, though, is... More

We've been several times to Pescau and it never dissapoints. It offers a wide range of dishes for both sea lovers and non lovers. The ambiance is great and the owner is always there making sure everything is on point. We loved the shrimp tostadas and the shrimp spring rolls. The bartenders have a lot of options for you to...

We were recommended this restaurant for its fish menu and were pretty disappointed. None of the fish dishes tasted really fresh. It's more of a bar, with a long bar table and blue lights and VERY loud music. Definitely not for the over 40s! its very centrally located though and drinks are good.

Ate here for dinner and service and food were impeccable. Ceviche of tuna was flavourful. Had the octopus and shrimp risotto in squid ink and the flavors were marvelous and the rice perfectly cooked. Service was attentive and I enjoyed it very much. Would definitely recommend for an evening out.reasonable prices and great atmosphere.

My husband had the Salmon - he is a salmon lover and very picky about fish dishes. Verdict: EXCELLENT! HIs dish was beautifully presented and cooked and he loved it. I had shrimp tacos (which wee very good) as I wanted to leave room for the flan. I was not disappointed - the flan was the best I have ever... More

Loved the Cocktail de Camerones, Aguachile de Atun, the Ceviche de Atun, and a nice bottle of Albarino. Great service, all delicious, and very well presented in a casual but chic atmosphere. Definitely recommend for a good Seafood dinner in SMDA.

Tried the octopus main dish and the Aguaschiles with tuna and the ones with shrimp. Outstanding! Margaritas al tamarindo. Outstanding. I grew up on the Italian coast, and I felt just just at home. Also, good lounge ambience with ocean theme. Want to go back!

mussels are tasteless, but everything else was fantastic. definitely give the aguachile a try, I could have eaten 5 plates. its obviously aimed at tourists, so you will pay US prices, but its worth it.

This is a low key, high end fish and seafood destination - communal tables and several TV's. You're here for the fish and the TV's

Been here often but tonight a cockroach appeared on our table. We mentioned this to staff and they promised action would be taken. Menu is diverse, we had barbecued octopus and barbecued shrimp and mixed seafood tacos.
