After a rather poor experience last year I returned on a Sunday evening to give Pacos another chance. It was quite busy but not so packed as last time. I think this helped as the waiting staff seemed in more control, were more pleasant and professional than they were on my last visit. The Sea Bass was both large and... More

Always very busy, I find food too spicy for me so choice is limited. Friends & family all love it. Service very good.

Place was quite busy on a Sunday night. Service friendly and fast enough. Food was good and surroundings too. Was a bit expensive hence 4 instead of 5 stars.

After our meal instead of a sweet our group of girls fancied a cocktail, we all made our choices but when they were brought to us they were just in dumpy tumblers, very disappointing and not how you'd expect a cocktail to be served. There also seemed to be a lot of difficulty in us requesting to pay our drinks... More

A "must" on visits to Perth. The food is consistently good and there is an extensive children's menu. Prices are on a par with family chain restaurants, but the food and atmosphere are far superior.

This has to be the worst 'Penne Arrabbiata' I have ever had the mis-fortune to be served. I would suggest the 'Chef' buys a recipe book. The pasta was BLAND served with onions, no chillies or garlic and a tomato sauce that was see through, says it all really. 'Arrabbiata' literally means 'Angry' this was non-descript. I will not waste... More

Surrounded by lots of waiting staff it appeared to be very good on the surface, however full of clueless trainees and disjointed systems. Continually chasing them for something. Food quality was good in the end and decor in the restaurant is nice. Overshadowed by the service however.

Had a very good meal at this restaurant. The surroundings were pleasant. The staff were attentive and the food was very good. Would recommend this restaurant for a good night out.
