The service was great. The meal I had was very good. However, my dining companion's meal wasn't great. We couldn't figure how some items on the plate were so cold?

OK service, if a little rushed. But good food quality and nice location right on the beach. It was busy when we went.

The wine was around £20, after around 15mins we were informed that they didn't have that particular wine but they had... More

Good cooking. Tasted very good. restaurants at Cabarete are on the beach/sand area. Stray dogs running and barking around areas. Price for food is not of good value. One thinks that a restaurant that pays Dominican wages can provide a better value or greater quantity of food items. There were rooms for rent on the alley way leading to restaurant,... More

Although there was a free menu if you paid extra you could have lobster for $32 which was so lovely and you get 1 1/2lbs fish

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... More

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... More
