We asked our tour guide for a recommendation on a lace to eat. We had a rental car which is needed to get from one side of the island to the other. Parking was easy near the beach, the staff was friendly and understood english. I recommend the fresh local red fish (red snapper).

I order the Steak on a Rock which was deliciously sizzling. If you... More

Nice staff with good food advices. The fish was very good. The dish was top served and it isn't expensive. You can have a good meal, a coup of wine and a nice evening for a good price.

We had the most wonderful experience at O Pescador! Joe (the owner) and Sandra (our server) went ABOVE & BEYOND when we decided to host a member of our groups Birthday Party. On their "day off" they graciously offered to open the restaurant just for our 10 person group! Not just that, they decorated, provided a homemade cake, provided party... More
