Description: Pescado Blanco: Mountain Mexican KitchenThe cuisine we are creating is not like the typical Mexican fare you may have had before. We gather our culinary style from a geographical region extending from Southern Mexico to Northern Montana developing a unique mountain Mexican fusion. All of our menu items are handmade from the fresh salsas to the hand-pressed tortillas. This restaurant is about using fresh,local, seasonal ingredients and blending flavors and the cultures.

“Mountain Mexican is Better Than You Can Imagine”
Reviewed January 31, 2010

This might be my favorite restaurant in the world. Traditional dishes are given Montana flair with pheasant and bison options. The salads are large and delicious. It is a little pricey, especially compared with most Mexican restaurants, but well worth it.

“Pretty Good Food”
Reviewed January 19, 2010

This isn't authentic Mexican food but in NW Montana it"s probably the best you're going to get. My wife had the pulled pork tacos & I had the carne asada tacos. Both were good but the pork was better. The surprise of the meal was a trip to the salsa bar. Homemade salsa's and hot sauces. Nicely done!

“Possibly the best Mexican restaurant in the world!”
Reviewed November 30, 2009

I love Mexican food but I've never previously encountered the quality of food on offer at Pescado Blanco. Some unusual dishes (pheasant enchiladas, bison spare ribs) as well as what one might expect (chicken enchiladas, beef tacos). Delicious. We had two meals in a week and loved them both. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable.

Pescado Blanco is a gem! And in Northern Montana! Who knew?

“Mexican their way”
Reviewed August 20, 2009

Montana is not a good destination for true regional Mexican food. Thus, Tex-Mex is the usual problem from one end of the state to the other. Too much fat, bad cheap junk cheese, stale leftovers, and no original ideas are the offerings for the traveler. Whitefish, however, has an original. Pescado Blanco has all the names we expect, but all the food has their own twist. All the salsas were very fine, fresh and we wanted more. We had a Chicken Quesadilla that was very nice. We both started thinking the food might fill us up too early, because there was plenty to eat. My wife got a fish special that she has been swooning about for two weeks. My Mole covered hanger steak was excellant. We had a couple of chocolate desserts. Everything was very good. Tecate on tap. NOT a cheap place to eat, we could have eaten cheaper. We thought to whole experience better than we expected. We will return. Those seafood enchiladas will be my next objective.

“Whitefish Mexican? Can you say "Pescado Blanco"?”
Reviewed July 23, 2009

Excellent big city food in a small town. Excellent local produce used in salsa, guacamole, tacos and seafood entree. Enough vegetarian/pescetarian options to allow multiple visits. Highly recommended.
