Enjoyed our dinner at cafe pescado. Kids had pizza, me and the wife had soup, potato and vegetables. Good music with warm hospitality. Nothing was wrong, but nevertheless nothing was extraordinary. A good place for dinner. Nothing more, nothing less.

An informal setting with a warm atmosphere, especially in the back part of the restaurant. Whilst the restaurant is unpretentious and maybe in need of a revamp, the food is always great and the faces always friendly. A popular spot for locals and tourists alike,...More
