Good, but not as extraordinary as the guide book promised. Did not see the Spanish owner present, so it may have been his apprentice in the kitchen.

Garlic shrimps and manioca chips. Simple, solid and delicious. And a very interesting soundtrack. Good value for money

Our boys were in need of a change of food (too many crayfish at the beach) and El Pescador offers great pizzas from a real wood oven, which the kids loved.
Paella and a mix of Italian and local style dishes lets everyone find their pick.
Friendly and fair prices.

We were a little late getting to dinner and our son was starting to lose it, so that is probably the reason the slower service that is typical in the DR really annoyed me. The mixed paella was delicious though, wow! Nice little restaurant, open to the street, mid range prices.

This has been our first time visiting The Dominican and we never go to an all inclusive hotels so we go it alone as a family of five fussy vegetarians. El Pescador is a perfectly nice restaurant. We had a relatively warm welcome and very decent food indeed, despite the fact that we really only eat pizza when we go traveling! The first time we ordered we ended up with Tuna on our pizza. This was not shown on the menu at all but they were very lovely and understanding about our vegetarianism and realised their mistake too. Honestly. I recommend this restaurant to all traveling in Las Galeras.
