Had an amazing dinner here. My wife and I had the Sea Food plate for 2. From the lobster tails to the red snapper...OUTSTANDING!!! Better yet was the homemade pasta. Loved it so much, we already made our reservations for our return visit. If you love great food, this one is a must!!!

This is our favorite restaurant in the area - beautiful setting watchin the ships come in at sunset. The staff is first rate and meals were beautifully presented. We always go there several times when we are in Nuevo Vallarta. Obviously it has an Italian seafood theme but there are other choices. Best tiramisu I've ever had and I've sampled... More

After a lovely day at the beach relaxing, we made reservations for a late dinner. First, after arriving at the appropriate time, 10 minutes later the hostess came and checked us in, then sat us in an air conditioned room to wait. The party of 4 behind us was seated at a lovely marina side table. Finally, after a wait... More

We have dined here many times since our first visit in 2002. We love Italian cuisine and seafood and this place has both. For those of us who stay in Nayarit (north of town) and are looking for excellent food outside our hotels or condos -- it's great. The waitstaff is very attentive and professional. And the value has never... More

Setting is outstanding I don't know who owns these yachts but I know that I don't, best I can do is an 18ft pontoon boat. Food is okay and wine is inexpensive by US standards, but the view makes up for any deficiencies.

We followed the waiters suggestions and first tried the Mexican wine. We sent that back. Our main courses were fish and steak. The fish was totally tasteless and the steak was thin, overcooked and difficult to cut. We did not send the main courses back because we had already complained about the wine and did not want to be ugly.... More

really, shouldn't a "signature" dish be better? I had the salmon "il Pescatore" and while the " base" of vegetables were cooked "al dente" and were quite flavorful with the balsamic reduction , the salmon was overlooked and essentially tasteless ( but for the balsamic on the veggies). Then after lingering a bit over my glass of wine, when the... More

This is a hidden away romantic spot. It is on Paradise Village property, next to the marina. We sat at an intimate table for two right next to all the boats in the marina. We found the service to be terrific but the food, while good, was not exceptional. I did really enjoy the panna cotta for dessert. It tasted... More

Every well made moment of the dinner at Il Pescatore is great. Sitting by the marina with Italian music in the back ground the bread sticks and bread basket start you off. The tuna was cooked perfectly the way I oredered it, couscous and mushrooms surrounded the steak. My fiancé had salmon Gorgonzola gnocchi in a beautiful sauce. When you... More
