“Still the best place for a romantic meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2014

We dine at Il Pescatore every year when we vacation at Paradise Village. It is our favorite restaurant, not only at the resort but in all of Nuevo Vallarta. Service is impeccable and the food is always perfect. Add a beautiful evening with soft breezes and gentle waves moving the boats in the marina, and the spot is perfect for a romantic dinner.

“Wonderful atmospher”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

Went last night for our annual dinner. We' ve been dining at Il Pescatore at least once if not twice during our trips to PV over the llast 13 years. This restaurant, their staff and food are consistently excellent. The wait staff is knowledgeable and ready to answer all your questions. Food is always good. Last night I had a perfectly seasoned sea bass entree, yum. However, my husband 's salmon was a bit overdone. We like dining in the romantic atmosphere of the marina. We'll be back.

“Excellent Place to eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

We ran into some local people who highly recommended Il Pescatore, we walk over made reservations for the next night, and wow, was it awesome. My husband and I had the surf platter for two, lobster, white fish, shrimp , and squid, the squid was a little salty, but other than that, it was incredible, you won't be disappointed, and right next to the marina. was a beautiful evening.

“Nice location on marina and good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

Nice to dine by the marina and boats. Good staff and food is good. A little pricey for many dishes but had scallops and then gnocchi and both were very good.

“Always a favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013 via mobile

We have eaten here every trip to NV for the last 10 plus years. We are never disappointed and yes by now we do have our favorite dishes. Mine is the salad and the veal. The veal is so tender you cut it with a fork. The sauce is delicious and goes perfectly with the fettuccine. My husband loves the octopus appetizer and the pesto salmon.
The setting is lovely. The service is fine. We always enjoy our ourselves
