    Our story >

    El Pescador is a dream come true thanks to the support of our customers, the solid union of our family, and the principles that our parents, Carlos and Isidra Ortiz, granted us.


    Everything began in 1983 when Manuel Ortiz, the eldest brother of our family, had a dream of being an owner of his own restaurant. This dream became a reality in the city of Bell Gardens, CA. Manuel knew he could count on the support of his ten brothers and his father.


    Later, each one of the brothers would share the same dream and a new path would lead to each one’s destiny. They focus on always maintaining the union, the virtue, and the advice of Don Carlos along with carrying in their blood the good sense of entrepreneurship from Doña Isidra Ortiz.


    We are the Ortiz Family: Carlos Sr., Isidra, Manuel, Raul, Jesus, Carlos, Abel, Gustavo, Vicente, Horacio, Victor, Alejandro and Eliazer. We thank God and each one of you for believing in our family and our restaurant, El Pescador.
