Are you ready for a seafood adventure like no other? Look no further than Pescada, a gem nestled in the heart of Scottsdale. With an overall rating of 4.3, Pescada promises an unforgettable dining experience.

We recently had the pleasure of visiting this fine-dining seafood restaurant, and here’s our take on its ambiance, food, drinks, and much more.

Ambiance (4.5/5)

Pescada welcomes you with a warm and inviting atmosphere that’s perfect for a romantic dinner or a gathering with friends. The elegant decor and soft lighting create an intimate setting, making it a classy choice for special occasions.

Food (4.5/5)

Pescada’s culinary creations are nothing short of exceptional. The Andalusia Gazpacho & Smoked Trout Stuffed Eggs appetizer is a flavorful explosion in your mouth. The Gazpacho is a refreshing chilled tomato soup with cucumber, peppers, and chili oil, while the Smoked Trout Stuffed Eggs are deviled eggs mixed with trout, topped with trout caviar, and rested on a bed of avocado mousse.

The Portuguese stew, featuring rich Chilean seabass, peppers, tomatoes, and coconut milk, is a must-try. It comes with a side of saffron rice, Portuguese rolls, and lime.

The Short Rib Bourguignon, is a melt-in-your-mouth experience with fall-off-the-bone short rib, celeriac puree, carrots, cremini mushrooms, pearl onions, and Gremolata dressing. For dessert, the Blood Orange and Pistachio Panna Cotta is pure indulgence.

Drinks (4/5)

Pescada offers a diverse drink menu, and their mixology game is strong. While we explored different drinks during our visit, the Spanish Flair cocktail stood out, as recommended by our friendly server.
