Took a trip to Torrevieja with 3 friends and we had a meal here. The food was excellent as was the service. " of us shared Paella, 1 had cod and one had sea bass in salt. They were all excellent.
The waiter served up the food and it was good watching him fillet the sea bass in front of us

This restaurant looks as if it will provide good fish/seafood, cooked properly in an older traditional Spanish setting. Not so in my experience. We both had the arroz negro (black rice with squid). Not to everyones taste, but a favourite of ours and a dish we have had many times throughout Spain and Italy. What can I say. No flavour, portion size small, content minimal (7 clams in their shell and a few pieces of squid for 2 people). Total bill for this, a bottle of house wine and bread, 39 euros. The restaurant was quiet on a Friday night. Was this because it was the end of September or are customers voting with their feet?

Family owned Spanisch restaurant is always good to visit. We went 2 times in September. The only minus is that the outdoor seating is not so nice.

I am a regular visitor to the area and never miss El Pescador
The food is very traditional spanish with a great selection particularly fish
It is located very centrally just off the waterfront
It is very much a family run restaurant
The staff have very little english but this has never been a problem
In addition there is a great continuity in the staff from visit to visit
The cost is reasonable - dinner will vary in price from 50-80 Euro including wine and is great value at that price
