This place is always so busy! Be sure you make reservations! The food was really great and we had yummy cocktails as well. We ended up talking to some locals eating next to us and we had a fantastic time at this place!

friendly, good service, fun bar. Not crazy about the seafood cause it seemed like everything was con queso. So if you order mariscos, tell them sin queso. It'll probably be really good.

Looking for a place for a drink before going to a neighbouring restaurant for dinner we dropped in for a cocktail. Old building courtyard modernized with a cool bar, nice lighting (music too loud), good table seating, friendly service. Ordered two margaritas and one gin martini. A perfect martini with little ice shards, margaritas good. But, $155P for a martini... More

Even Though it's a seafood restaurant the menu offers alternatives. STICK to seafood appetizers and make a full meal of them. Octopus, shrimp and oysters are the safest bet. It is a mexican seafood restaurant that needs some attention by the owner. The food is pasable but the service is very bad. decor is acceptable. NOT a destination restaurant in... More

If these folks got their act together and made their space cleaner and fresher, El Pescau could be in the running for one of San Miguel's best. But, sadly, the place is in need of a thorough scrub down, from the awnings covering the roof openings to the chairs. Just feels a little icky. Some of the food, though, is... More

We've been several times to Pescau and it never dissapoints. It offers a wide range of dishes for both sea lovers and non lovers. The ambiance is great and the owner is always there making sure everything is on point. We loved the shrimp tostadas and the shrimp spring rolls. The bartenders have a lot of options for you to...

We were recommended this restaurant for its fish menu and were pretty disappointed. None of the fish dishes tasted really fresh. It's more of a bar, with a long bar table and blue lights and VERY loud music. Definitely not for the over 40s! its very centrally located though and drinks are good.
