Fresh fish and local seafood well cooked in traditional style. Boquinete fish was really good! It's better for lunch or early dinner, they close the kitchen at 9 PM and afterward you can get only something to drink, which can lead you to find a lot of drunk and noisy people if you stay longer.

The tacos were okay . . . not as tasty as I had elsewhere. The beef quesadillas were very tasty and loaded with cheese. The prices were very reasonable.

This low-key restaurant in the middle of Akumal is wonderful. All seafood is of excellent quality and freshness. We went there many times, I recommend the mojo de ajo fish, the lobster, grilled octopus and the shrimp cocktail. The margaritas are great and very strong! Please be aware they do not accept credit cards; fortunately there is an ATM a... More

Our favorites were mixed ceviche, whole fried fish, and Langostinos. Great food, price, service and palapa & sand atmosphere. Loved it.

It's good food all fresh seafood, they make smaller portions for kids meals. Service was super and the menu is in English. I loved the musicians that came they and played a few songs.

Pescador is a great, albeit slightly crowded restaurant for a casual seafood supper. Expect to wait for a table around peak times. My wife had the mini-lobsters, and they were fantastic! I had the grouper stuffed with seafood, and it, too, was piping hot and memorably tasty. We would definitely come back. One extra note: we walked next door to... More

Menu is a bit limited. We have had quite a few meals here and they have all been good. The garlic and butter fish fillet was really nice.
