As its name implies, Pescado Seafood Grill brings the bounty of the Gulf to the dinner table at this upscale restaurant located in the master-planned coastal community of Rosemary Beach. From the moment guests enter the door, they will be impressed with the impeccable white tablecloth service and trendy atmosphere, but most of all, they will enjoy the rooftop deck which provides views of the Gulf. Undoubtedly, Pescado Seafood Grill & Rooftop Bar is one of the best dining destinations in South Walton County.
On the Menu
In the kitchen, the knowledgeable chefs prepare a dinner menu that contains the novel idea of small bites followed by shareables, which are entrees designed for two people. For example, diners can start by ordering the Spiced Lollipop Lamb Chops and a Charcuterie Board, then share a Cantonese Style Whole Lobster, a massive 48oz. Tomahawk Ribeye, or an exemplary Paella Valenciana. In addition to a decadent dinner menu, the raw bar presents oysters, steak tartare, seafood salads and a chef’s ceviche that uses seasonal ingredients. Pescado Seafood Grill & Rooftop Bar also prepares a la carte options which include items such as Truffled Jalapeño-Mashed Potatoes, Butter Poached Mushrooms and Yakisoba, or stir-fried noodles. Nevertheless, the menu changes with the season in order to maintain a sense of sustainability in search of curated ingredients when they are at their best.
Behind the Bar
This restaurant has such a spectacular rooftop bar with wonderful Gulf views, even if you skip dinner, the sunset is worth the price of a couple of cocktails or bottle of wine. And to obtain that cocktail or glass of vino for the rooftop, the knowledgeable barkeeps will happily prepare it. The cocktails use a varied array of liquor. From tequila and Tanqueray to Calvados and Chartreuse, every menu item is innovative. The wine list is impressive; in fact, there is such a wide selection that it may take some time to carefully peruse them all. The selection of red, white and sparkling wines is well-balanced and they can be ordered by the bottle or by the glass.
