    I live in the San Francisco bay area, and I recently went to Reno for a weekend getaway. I had heard of El Pescador from a friend, and they highly recommended it so I thought I might as well try it.
    Honestly, I would take a day trip, and drive three hours to eat this food. I haven't been able to stop bragging to all my friends and family about this place. I took a small to go menu with me, and plan on taking a trip back up there soon with some friends. They have the best fish tacos I've ever eaten, and the Camerones con Camisa (Prawns stuffed with cheese and wrapped in bacon) was to die for. Their horchata tastes like Christmas and the chips, salsa and bean dips were amazing. I can't wait to go back!!

    Oh my God, I love this place! I think that I am addicted to the Ceviche. I wish this restaurant was in the Bay area so I could go every day. I love the prawns stuffed with shrimp and wrapped in bacon. Some of my employees drive to Reno

    MY WIFE AND I HAVE TRIED THIS RESTAURANT A FEW TIMES IN THE PAST AND THE FOOD HAS ALWAYS BEEN GOOD, BUT THE SERVICE TERRIBLE. THEY OBVIOUSLY PREFER ONLY HISPANIC PATRONS, BUT MY WIFE DOESN'T SPEAK SPANISH AND FELT SHE WAS ALWAYS GLARED AT BY THE EMPLOYEES...BUT WE WENT BACK LAST WEEK BECAUSE SOMEONE MY WIFE WORKS WITH SAID IT HAS CHANGED. THE FOOD WAS GREAT! WE WERE GREETED BY A VERY ATTRACTIVE LADY THAT SPOKE ENGLISH!!! WE WERE DELIGHTED!! EVIDENTLY, THE NEW MANAGEMENT TEAM IS A HUSBAND AND WIFE AND I MUST SAY THEY ARE FANTASTIC!! THEY MAKE THE PLACE WORTH VISITING!! I CAN SAY WE SAW QUITE A CHANGE, WITH MORE NEEDING TO BE MADE WITH THE SERVERS, THE POOR GIRL SEEMED UNABLE TO HANDLE JUST OUR TABLE AND ONE OTHER, BUT I AM CONFIDENT THAT SINCE THE NEW MANAGGEMENT SIMPLY MAKES THE PLACE FEEL MORE WELCOMING AND POSITIVE THAT THEY WILL GET BETTER EMPLOYEES SOON! I WISH I COULD REMEMBER THEIR NAMES, THE HUSBAND AND WIFE, BUT IF YOU WANT TO FEEL WELCOME AND ALMOST LIKE YOU JUST WENT TO VISIT GOOD FRIENDS ASK FOR THE MANAGEMENT COUPLE!! THE LADY WAS SO REAL, LISTENED TO US AND NEVER ONCE ACTED AS IF WE WERE A BOTHER....SHE WAS FANATASTIC AND SPOKE ENGLISH!!!! GIVE THE PLACE WE ALL KNOW WITH THE BAD REPUTATION A WHOLE NEW CHANCE... HONESTLY, IT HAS FINALLY IMPROVED!!! NO LONGER THAT PLACE WITH THE GOOD FOOD YOU AVOID BECAUSE OF THE CRAPPY SERVICE AND UNWELCOMING ATMOSPHERE! GO IN LIKE IT IS SOMEWHERE YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN AND ENJOY.....JUST IGNORE THAT IN YOUR FACE MUSIC AT THE DOOR, IT IS TOO MUCH RIGHT WHEN YOU WALK IN, THAT GUY PLAYING, BUT OTHER THAN THAT YOU WILL HAVE A GREAT MEAL IN A COZY PLACE!

    Pros: Seems to finally have competent management and English speaking people

    Cons: Live music playing right when you walk in & too much Spanish spoken

    I wish I could have given this restaurant 5 stars because the food is definitely worth all 5 stars, but unfortunately the atmosphere created by the staff doesn't deserve such a high rating. The place truly has excellent food, I had family here from back east and we went to check it out, the decor is great and the prices reasonable. The only problem was it seems to be a place only for people who are hispanic. We were the ONLY non-hispanics in the place....including staff!!! We were stared at and by observing the way hispanic patrons were treated, we definitely were NOT given good service. The young woman that seated us seemed to not even speak English, or perhaps just didn't want our kind there...that is what it felt like. I am disappointed though, the food was very good, but I guess some people just feel certain places are for only certain people and make sure to let it be known. If you are hispanic, I am certain you will love the food and the place .......we are Italians and really did enjoy the food, but we were so clearly not welcome.
