Although recommended on Trappers List (Cabo San Lucas "best of list") as a good place for fresh seafood at a great price, of all the restaurants that we ate at, El Pescador (The Fisherman) was the least appealing. It was not bad, just not nearly as good as our new favorites.

We found El Pescador on Trapper's List and loved it! I had the shrimp combo (2 breaded, 6 garlic/grilled, 2 wrapped in bacon) with rice, veggies and mashed potatoes. My boyfriend had steak and lobster (the steak was awesome) and one of our friends had a whole grilled fish (head and all), which melted in your mouth. We ate there on Friday night and I am SO sad we couldn't get back there before our flight left on Saturday. It's a very simple place, but the staff is great...family owned and run and Diego is fantastic. Taxi drivers and locals will know how to get there.

Super place to enjoy seafood--lobster & shrimp or lobster & scallops combos for about $16, shrimp alone was 130 p, cokes were 20 p, and the octopus ceviche was 85 p. Have always had great tasting food there, and Diego is a wonderful host! Across the street from Sleepless Lobster (which we don't like as much as Crazy Lobster).

My wife and I found this place after researching trip adviser and Im so glad we did. It is a little off the path but that's a bit about what vacations are for. We ordered some type of captains platter that had an assortment of lobster tails, fresh fish's, 2 kinds of shrimp, rice/veggies, crab claws and some octopus. The meal was excellent and cam in around $50-$60. Before our meal was served the management noticed our legs getting eaten up by mosquitoes and brought us a can of OFF spray and then placed a electric fan to blow on our legs to help keep the mosquitoes away. The effort was appreciated and once the comfort factor went up, it made everything much more enjoyable.

Had an okay meal here of steak and lobster. Maro's was better for about the same price. The food was kinda "meh" - not good, not bad. There are definitely better options in CSL.
