Excellent food and super friendly staff. We were seated in a more of an outdoor space, unfortunately the dining room was filled with nothing but men. BUT the food was very delicious . Portions were great. The risotto with sea bass and lobster was wonderful. So tasty! Highly recommend the Lima salad with octopus and shrimp..just excellent. My friend had... More

Not only were there plenty of delicious dishes on the menu but... More

I recently went with a friend for my second time and it was just as awesome as the first time I went. Very attentive staff but not overly so. Delicious food, great flavors and combinations. I've always gotten a fish entree and have had the warm 'ceviche' appetizer in a great sauce. Pisco sours are good as well (but mine... More

It is some kind of fusion between Peruvian (actually my beverage was the Chicha Morada) and Italian, there is no mistake here! but it is definitely recommended Salmon or Tilapia!

The food was excellent. We had the causitas as appetisers and the tuna as main course. The food is a bit pricy but it is worth it. The waiter was very friendly and was checking upon us regularly. Definitely recommend it.

Decided to spoil myself one night and was no disappointed by Pescatore. Started with the Fantasy Ceviche which was sublime but couldn't pick an entree. The waiter said the tuna was fresh and recommended the Sauco Tuna with mushroom risotto and I think parmesan. WOW. Tuna was cooked perfectly rare and the sauce on top was perfect! I am so... More

Delicious. It's a must in San Jose. I strongly recommend focaccia, grilled octopus and ceviche a la piedra to start. Excellent main courses include the chaufa rice, aji de gallina and tuna. One of the best restaurants in San Jose with decent prices according to the quality.

People raved about this place and the first time I went I was not impressed by the food. It was just ok. I had the tuna tartare as appetizer and the salmon for main course. Both were ok but not great. Service was mediocre. My colleagues insisted I should give it another try, perhaps I didn't order one of their... More

Pescatore Restaurant is focused on providing recipes where creativity and originality are the highlights, fusing peruvian and Mediterranean cuisine. A truly new and unique experience. The restaurant is owned by Peruvian chef Regis Molina, Le Cordon Bleu graduate, with extensive experience in Costa Rica. Finally note the open kitchen, large windows and the ability to eat outdoors. Hope to see you soon !
