If fresh fish is your thing...this is the place although the menu is not restricted to fish only. The food is well prepared in authentic Mexican fashion and the servings are always ample. Ask for the manager, Filipe, you will make a new friend who is fluently bilingual, knowledge of his menu and willing to go the extra distance to... More

Calamari appetiser, red snapper special , chilled white wine . What's not to like? Very friendly service . One street back from the front . Great value. Great experience. There's even a small kids play area at the rear.

Very nice very busy fish restaurant. Being so busy service can be a bit forgotten. The fish meal looked and tasted great as did the dessert. We went back to our hotel from here, couple of drinks and turned in for the night. Next morning we both got toilet problems.

My wife and I went again last night. We've been with large groups or as a couple. We went early and there were only Mexicans in the place--maybe six tables and a group standing at the bar. El Pesquero is a sand floor large palapa with standard white plastic tables and chairs and brazilian music playing non-stop. The service is... More

Small, beach bar styled restaurant close to the centre. Simple setting but fantastic food. Their chilpachole and ceviche are the best I've ever had, and in good portions. Downside is that their kitchen closes quite early, around 8pm

Simple, ground level, open air place that has supremo friendly service. Victor waited on us and commanded the attentive staff. You sit in modest white Walmart plastic chairs and basic tables. Takes casual to a new level....the feel and friendliness of the whole place. Like being invited over to someone's place for a cookout. The seafood was fresh and flavorful.... More

This place is a hidden gem. The staff and owner/manager are wonderful and very attentive. The fish is fresh. If you like ceviche, go here! I will be back. . . soon! Great traditional soups and stews and cold beverages. It's not on the beach, but is about a clock away. The food and servie more than makes up for... More

A great little find off of the main square. Fresh seafood at fair prices. Parking can be a challenge in their narrow streets, so you may need to park somewhere else and walk, but it is worth it. Note that they do close around 7:30 PM. They also accept MasterCard and Visa.

Having seen the good ratings on TripAdvisor, we went here for dinner one night recently. The appies (pico de gallo) were fine, and the grilled catch of the day I had was nicely cooked. Only place in PM where they have served a scoop of mashed potato as a side. The place did not have an authentic feel to it.... More
