Nice bar/restaurant with amazing interior

Nice big, spacious bar/restaurant serving fresh food - snacks or full blown courses. Staff are nice and friendly - even those who don't serve you, say hi or goodbye as you pass them. Nice and spacious but the real draw is the decor - the eclectic collection of stuff on the shelves / on the walls... read more

Great food, friendly and super efficient staff! Paco's has a wide menu choice featuring fantastic steaks, mexican and italian dishes. The portion sizes are always on the generous size! The staff are always trained to a high level and the efficiency is second to none, and they are always smiling and helpful! My husband and I visited for dinner mid... More

Didn't eat in the tapas part but the other side which had a very bizarre theme. The menu was of an Italian-American theme but the decorations were British-American with lots of other stuff thrown in. Food was tasty enough but nothing to write home about.

A colleague and I recently visited the tapas section of pacos. I can only say it was excellent. The tapas was unbelievable and it genuinely gave us a sense of dining in the continent. I herd both Spanish and French being spoken tonight which was nice to hear. The hosts name was James I think, well he was both professional... More

Lovely food as always. Lots to chose from on the menu. On every visit there seems to be a lot of staff 'training to be great' which isn't a problem, but feel they could do with some guidance at times (how to deal with food allergies etc). One of our favs in Perth!

Great place, excellent food and really attentive and polite staff. The obviously home made seafood spaghetti was a joy and I will be returning for that alone (and I live in Yorkshire!). After a few business visits over the past few years, Perth is one of my favourite places to be and Paco's adds to that affection.

But not quite very good! Tripadvisor really need to bring in an in -between rating! My wife and I ate here recently, the food was fine, without being spectacular, the service was okay. I wouldn't come rushing back to eat here, but then neither would I shy away from the place if I was in the area.
