A busy little restauarent, it was full by 7.30pm when we were there, so service was a little slow due to this. However the food lived up to comments from other recent reviews. Would return again.
The London Fish & Chips made with Mahi Mahi was VG.

My husband and I are foodies and with hectic schedules we don't miss an opportunity to dine out and enjoy each other's company as often as we can make it happen. What makes Mere Pescao a must try?!?! You walk into a cozy, vibrant, fun and trendy establishment. Staff is very friendly plus ambiance and food are great. House drinks are a twist to popular cocktails which end up being one of the unique surprises of Mere Pescao. Tried 4 out of 6, Picarita (very interesting flavors if you are into spicy drinks), Sangrimosa (Fruity sangria with a splash of bubbly), Cinnajito(mojito taken to another level,yum!) and Tamaisland (Wow, if you like green tea, ginger and tamarind this will become your new cocktail). We enjoyed all 4 and will be back to try the Coco Punch and El Wawi. Now let's talk food-main entries were Pad Thai (added shrimp) and the Street Batata (added shrimp), both good but not the entries I want to focus on. Instead, let me tell you about the appetizer we had, Steamed Buns with Tuna OMG....Now this was the star of the night and they are so delicious next visit I'm not sharing. Highly recommend and we look forward to another visit very soon!

Ordered crab cakes in a bun and they flavors in it were really unique (Asian-ish)! My bf ordered grouper kebabs and they were also good- great hot sauce with it (not too hot)!

Try the Pierogies and the soft buns filled with pork. Excellent fillers and delicious soft bread. The tacos with their special version of ceviche- escabeche were good. All fresh tasty ingredients and good sized. Pierogies includes 5 per plate, soft buns and tacos 3 each per plate. Nice colorful fish mural.

This place was pretty awesome. Had the coconut drink and it was delicious. The vibe is very relaxed and the place has a simple concept. Our fish tacos were fresh and delicious and the service was exceptional. Definitely will be returning. It's a small place but if you want to eat at a place not-so-touristy this is the place to go.
