Left Perth Concert Hall with my daughter and went straight over to Paco's because it was opposite the hall. How lucky for us! Beef chilli was delicious. Spicey, which is how it should be and full of flavour with chunks of beef. Apparently an unchanged recipe for decades. Their chef has been with them for nearly 30 years and you... More

Paco's is just yards from the hotel where we were staying and had a reasonably expansive menu so made the ideal choice for a place to have dinner. We'd originally hoped to have tapas but were told that this section of the restaurant, on the first floor, was for adults only due to its size (I think the man said).... More

Have visited this restaurant a couple of times in the past month. The food is good but the service lets it down. Also I feel quite pricey for this type of restaurant. The service is quick but there is no "customer care" On the two occasions I have visited nobody asked if we needed more drinks, whether our meal was... More

I had a pizza which was delicious! We ordered some cocktails as well which were lovely. The staff were very attentive and the atmosphere... More

I get so excited to try new places so when I heard a rumour pacos had opened a tapas bar - with two chefs from Spain I couldn't get down their quick enough. Was totally blown away! Sampled 8 different tapas dishes, and 2 sharing boards which all tasted sublime! Although will have to give a special mention to the... More

Paco`s has an excellent spacious Tapas Bar with good choice of dishes, friendly Spanish staff & authentic music. It is also almost opposite the superb Perth Concert Hall!
