Nice ambiance, very attentive wait staff. Presentation of food was very good. Avocado and shrimp salad starter had just 2 shrimp which was a pity. Not really a seafood restaurant but more of a fish restaurant. House wine very disappointing and the white was warm not chilled.

Good cooking. Tasted very good. restaurants at Cabarete are on the beach/sand area. Stray dogs running and barking around areas. Price for food is not of good value. One thinks that a restaurant that pays Dominican wages can provide a better value or greater quantity of food items. There were rooms for rent on the alley way leading to restaurant,... More

Although there was a free menu if you paid extra you could have lobster for $32 which was so lovely and you get 1 1/2lbs fish

We are made to feel at home immediately when greeted warmly by Francis. Service at El Pescador is always excellent. The Lobster Bisque, Avocado and Shirmp Salad and the Calamari with Tartar Sauce are our preferred starters. For the mains we've tried the Mahi Mahi in Champagne Sauce, Fish Stew, Linguini with Clams and found them to be terrific. The... More
