We had dinner the other day at El Pescador. Fish and sea food -also sold for you to get home- was very fresh and very well cooked. We really enjoyed our dishes, the place was clean, the owner was a real gentleman, the service was as discreet and as effective as they should, and we left really pleased. No wonder... More

I went there and ordered a warm starter of a fried variety of fish and the main dish was like a mixed grilled fish with spinet and potatoes and the spinet was amazingly tasty, the place smelled bit not good in the indoor area and the restaurant's mood was not really attractive but the food was good and tasty

Every Time I am in town we have at least one meal here and it is always decent. Wine selection is good and prices are fair, too. I do not know the servers name but she is a nice lady from Macedonia, I believe, and she makes the meal also more pleasant. Very friendly chefs, too.

lthe fish was very fresh and person was very kind it is a restaurant very similar to fish shop where you can choise the fresh fish and then they cook it. It is not in center so there isn't turist but it isn't difficult to arrive. Only it is not possible to pay with credit card but it isn't expensive.

Delicious seafood, friendly service. Nice wine list with correct mark-ups and more than decent house wine by the pitcher, Unusually unexpensive not only for German standards. My only complaint: the bowl of bouillabaisse (better than in Marseille) was too small!!! I sjould have ordered 2 of them...

I ate there on a Saturday evening, on my own. Everything was good, food,service, drinks. If you stay in the area and think where to eat and you like fish, don't think any more, walk to El Pascador!

Wow fish at its best Western chose for shared dining and had the opportunity to eat a lot of different things. Staff is very friendly and prices very good for offered quality. One huge improvement is the wine list. We ordered 4 different bottles and all where lacking quality so an improvement to be done here

As one walks in there is an iced display of the fresh fish for preparing. The selection is phenomenal. The restaurant is always crowded and noisy-reservation a must. Service seems to keep up with the crowds,but always a waiting time. Our grilled octopus was lightly breaded and delicious but overcooked making it very chewy. Our huge grilled fresh fish was...

The fish quality is good. It is a bit expensive but for a fish restaurant in Düsseldorf I think is ok. The only thing is that they wanted to charge us one starter more (12€) and one bottle of water more (5,50€). So at the end I didn't like it so much.
