Came here once, and came back. Best seafood in PM. Eat here, get their recommendations. Ceviche is delicious, loaded with fish. First night had the shrimp burrito with a mole sauce that is to die for. Second time got garlic shrimp (and ceviche again). Yum!...More

We stopped in after we got back from a day of sight seeing. The food was good although my Curried shrimp tasted a bit fishy for my taste but my husbands Lobster alfredo was super delishious.

As the title says - if you want seafood, head directly to El Pesquero! Sand floods and friendly waiters. Delicious fish cooked many different ways. Great burritos too. Will return!

Awesome food. Miguel served us like kings. The lobster was off the hook. Mojo de Ajo on the fish really hit the spot. Kids played in the playground - what a great idea to have this!

We were told to eat here by one of the locals we talked with. He sure gave us good information, this place is a local gem. Very nice people, great food in a casual atmosphere and fair prices. I can't wait to go back.

Nice waitstaff in a casual beach environment. We had good margs, a nice bowl of fish soup, and very good ceviche mixto made with just the right amount of lime. They obviously take pride in their work. We will definitely go back.

Can't speak to the lobster, but their drinks are excellent and very reasonably priced (we found all the food to be reasonably priced as well). The margaritas were SO good!!

Its about 5 kilometers taking the shortest route by road, which kind of winds along the ocean. Taxis are pretty cheap and its in the heart of the city. Its worth the trip into town to see everything and eat local.
