We are sorry that you have had this bad experience, it is usually not like that. But you forgot to mention in your comment that you just didn't eat the lobster and everything else ate and also the restaurant didn't charge anything for what was...More

Went with a group of 11. The restaurant was very accommodating in terms of seating arrangements. They also provided recommendations and organized a mix of dishes for the table to share. The food was very good, with lots of different fish dishes of course. Overall...a good experience.More

Had dinner there with my wife and her aunt. I am not much of a seafood lover myself and I have been to two other local restaurants that serve seafood either exclusively, or as part of the menu. Pescador is definitely a cut above the...rest if you are looking to impress your guests. My wife and her aunt absolutely sang its praises. My fish dish was excellent. And the service definitely stands out from the typical local service standards. The prices match the quality of the food and service...it's up there. You get what you pay for, and in this case it was well worth it.More

Service is great, the starters that they give you on offer super tasty and local, the beer is at the perfect temperature and the grilled fish is one of the best I have tried in Cabo Verde. Totally recommended!!

We booked what we thought was the finest seafood restaurant in Praia for Christmas day. Service was dreadful, more than 30 minutes before we even got a menu. I ask if the lobster is available and it is. We chose our meals then waited a...long time for someone to come and take the order. I ordered shrimp and papaya for a starter. We waited about another half hour when they came and said sorry no papaya did I want shrimp without or order something different. As I didn't fancy another half-hour wait I had it without papaya. We have our starter and the shrimp and lettuce was very sad looking. We then waited and waited then the waiter came to say the lobster was not good please choose something else, they offer some big gambas instead so I agree. Then we wait some more for it to be cooked. Finally the meal arrives and the gambas in tomato sauce are very good. The accompanying rice has been put over on the side so I go and get it myself rather than wait any longer for someone to realise it is ours and bring it. My husband had ordered the trilogy of fish but this arrived as a duo without an explanation or apology. We didn't bother with dessert as life is too short to wait even longer for service. The service was appalling - we had booked some time in advance so they knew we were coming. Some of the food was Ok but no I wouldn't want to go back.More

Good afternoon, we ordered unevenness for the inconvenience and for the poor service that this day the restaurant provided. Believe me it was an atypical day at the restaurant, which is not normal. But nothing justifies the poor service, we only have to moan and...More

Restaurant Pescador is located just across hotel Pestana Trópico, in Prainha, the residential & embassies neighbourhood of Praia. The restaurant belongs to 4* Boutique Hotel Pescador. Decoration and table decoration give the restaurant a nice ambiance. Beside the ground-floor restaurant you can also dine or...have a glass at the terrace on the top floor. The menu is seafood & Mediterranean. Staffs are friendly and service is adequate. We came on a weekday. The food was surprisingly well presented and tasty. We came again on a Friday to enjoy the life music at the terrace. The ambiance was nice and the food & drinks were fine. We recommend restaurant Pescador to anyone who seeks very good seafood.More

We had a tuna salad, pata negra ham, spicey Fogo cheese, octopus and shrimp dish and sterloin with 3 pepper sauce. It was al tastefull and well preapared. (medium sterloin, crispy octopus, etc) A European quality restaurant with the service of a Michelin star restaurant....Good chocolat mousse! The restaurant is part of an hotel and you don't expect this kind of quality from the outside. Not a local restaurant with typical Cabeverdian food but a place to have a good dinner. Prices are low for European standards if you compare it to quality restaurants in Europe, quite high for Cabeverdian standards. But the food and service is worth it! Mains around 2000 esc (18 euro)More

We ate here 4 times while staying in Praia. Each time everything was so fresh and good, especially enjoyed the tomato rice side dish. Had a great shrimp dish in a wonderful sauce, served over a roasted sweet potato - awesome! Can't recommend this place...enough. The service was over the top and we enjoyed the wine from nearby Fogo island.More
