This seafood restaurant proves the old truth that you should keep a block or so away from the sea front to get good food. We liked everything about it, the service, the food and the atmosphere. The salt baked sea bream can be recommended.

We spent more on a 3 course meal in this restaurant than any other during our stay in Torrevejia. Garlic prawns to start for both of us, we then had Swordfish steak, my partner had the apple flan for dessert, I had the creme caramel. All well cooked and with good friendly service. Recommended.

Extremely kind and service minded staff. They're not very good in English but compensate with a very big heart. We had an excellent Lobster Paella that was the best paella we've ever had, actually. Definitely something to return to and very good value for money.

I've been dining here several times over the years and every single time the fish won't shouldlet me down. I have't tasted anything else because the only reason for me to come El Pescador is the Fish. Dessert should eat somewhere else. Absolutely with to visit if You prefer fishdish!
