Cueva del pescador advertises "a you hook it, we cook it" policy on the menu. After a great day of fishing my girlfriend and I caught about an 8 pound barracuda and a 20 pound wahoo. As wahoo is a great tasting prize catch we decided to just have some wahoo at the restaurant and pick up a small filet for lunch the next day. Our guides were happy to take the barracuda home for themselves.
Long story short we were served barracuda at the restaurant, told it was wahoo, and had to insist we take a small filet home. Our waiter sneaked a filet onto a chair next to us as we paid the bill. One quick look at the filet and it was obvious that they were trying to scam us.
After paying 170$ US dollars for a package deal of fishing that included dinner at the cueva del pescador we forked out another 36$ total on drinks and an extra order of octopus. We didn't want to be cheap and always tip exorbitantly while on vacation.
Service - 0/5 If you want to flag down your waiter in between his shots of tequila to get another drink this place is for you.
That being said, the place has the best ajillo octopus ever, is cheap, and has an extra laid back vibe. Unfortunately we were left with a sour taste in our mouths and we wanted to let others know about the "you hook it, we cook it" policy of the restaurant beforehand.
