We ate here twice. The shrimp tacos were soooo good, also the garlic shrimp was excellent. We are coming back in December and I have to get a burrito and the shrimp on a skewer (don't know what they were called, just saw them delivered to table next to us). I think everything would be good here. The bloody mary... More

Anytime that we stay in this area we make a point of eating at the Pesquero. It has been a pleasure to see this restaurant prosper from the original tent with a few tables to eating under it's beautiful palapa and seeing how many more customers can be seated. The Catch of the Day was a delicious Dorado that was... More

Best Garlic Shrimp and Seafood Mixiote (mish-e-otay)!!! Great atmosphere - sand floor, plastic patio furniture and the coolest faucet ever... Jammi was the best! She's from Venezuela originally. Practicing her English and was very good. Better than our attempt at Spanish... But I digress... Jammi recommended the Mixiote which my hubby, sister and bro-in-law absolutely loved. I had the Garlic... More

This is a great place to stop for lunch while you are walking around town. The bacon wrapped shrimp was delicious and all the sides were fresh and tasty. Everyone enjoyed! The beer is cold, the price is right, the staff are attentive and friendly. You won't go wrong here.

The food was great here. I had the grilled shrimp and my wife had the fish Mayan style. Both were great and we would recommend it to anyone.

Myself had some grilled fish that was bathing in oil, I dont honestly know how... More

We always come back to this place, marvelling at how good the cooking is, especially the shrimp. They do them so many ways - this time we had them in a cilantro sauce - creamy and perfectly prepared. This place serves the greatest salsa and chips, with an assortment of 5 sides, all complimentary. Two people can eat (with their... More
