We have been to this restaurant several times, the last one with a couple of guests, and we have always experimented a great pleasure with their food. Fresh, great quality fish and seafood, mainly as its name tells, and an awesome way to prepare it. We recommend "arroz tamboril" (rice with monkfish, delicious) "arroz de marisco" (seafood rice, with lobster,... More

Yesterday we have eaten here. What a shame.......the restaurant was not full (15 pax) however de staff was fully equiped (4 cooks and 3 waitresses). The main course - monkfish with rice 27.90 euros for two persons - took a while. And when it arrived.... a big bowl with thick rice soup and the amount of fish was very disappointing.... More

Had a very nice mixed platter of grilled fish, mostly appeared to be local species. Plenty of food for two at Euro 32,50. Can only recommend this place if you are looking for good fish.

Excellent fish dishes, good wine, good service. A little more expensive than some places we went to but totally worth it. You can see the chef and his team busily working away in the kitchen in the back.

If your are looking for a good sea food and fish restaurant, "O Pescador" is a place to consider. The grilled fish is superb and the prices are affordable ones.

This is a restaurant where everything is good. Only with the appetizers one becomes very well – all are regional specialties. The fish is really fresh and very well grilled. Don’t leave without tasting one of the great desserts. Enjoy!

Great place to have some fresh fish. I had the dish that is presented. I must say in real live it is not as vivid in color but the taste is great and that is what it is all about.

Food was average and prices were a little high, service was unfriendly and it seemed like we were intruding into a local establishment.

We ate here as my husband was on a hunt for lobster. The food was delicious, perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. House wine was tasty too. Very friendly waiting staff. Worth walking a short way out of the centre for. English spoken, but attempts at Portuguese appreciated.
