Hotel Pescador is close to Prainha, has a nice interior, and great service. We ate there twice, and although it's mainly a fish restaurant, the best meal I had was with meat. The waiters are friendly, there is a limited wine list, but the wine is fine. Reservations are not necessary.

We spent a few days in Praia and tried some different restaurants. Pescador was the best. Great food, atmosphere and service. Highly recommended.

The place is a bit impersonal and cold (also they are currently working on the building but don't let that discourage you) and they might try a bit too much to be a high end restaurant when they'd rather do a bit less. The food speaks for itself! It is absolutely DELICIOUS!! Fresh products, big portions, great seafood but also... More

I arrived early for dinner, so I had the place to myself. Excellent food, wine and above all, fantastic Portuguese-African service. It is a seafood place, but they offer a varied menu.

This is part of the hotel that I stayed at. Extensive menu with fresh fish on display to choose from. Very good local wine from Fogo. Chose the grilled fish and was done to perfection. Very good service.

The only restaurant I go to in Praia everytime I visit. Fresh fresh on offer everyday. The tomato rice is also a favourite for me. Staff are polite and restaurant is clean and well presented. Looking forward to next time!
