“Francis And His Team Are Tops”
Review of El Pascador

El Pascador
Ranked #88 of 122 Restaurants in Puerto Plata
Restaurant details
Reviewed 13 March 2012

We are made to feel at home immediately when greeted warmly by Francis. Service at El Pescador is always excellent.

The Lobster Bisque, Avocado and Shirmp Salad and the Calamari with Tartar Sauce are our preferred starters.

For the mains we've tried the Mahi Mahi in Champagne Sauce, Fish Stew, Linguini with Clams and found them to be terrific.

The house wine is nothing to write home about so we either bring our own or buy one from the wine list. Prices are reasonable compared to what we would pay at home for the same wine.

Be sure to reserve early and often for El Pescador. You won't be disappointed.

There are always good desserts on offer......chocolate cake, vanilla cake, creme caramel, ice cream, fruit salad and profiteroles.

This restaurant is right on the beach along with the other open air restaurants so the location is nice. I think the prices were pretty average and the service was good enough. However, we found the food preparation to be mixed. The grilled mahi mahi was totally over done and I should have sent it back. The whole fish was actually surprisingly yummy. The other two entrees ordered were unmemorable. They were edible, but I think you'd have overall better luck with some of the other places on the beach. On the other hand, none of our dinners on the beach were so great that we wanted to return to that restaurant.
