We had our first dinner during our visit to Alghero at Paco's, which is located on the edge of the historic center in Largo San Francesco. We had a 4 course seafood dinner here. The first course was a 3-tiered tower of 7 different appetizers (picture attached). It was very original and very tasty. Guy, the host, was very congenial... More

We went to Paco's as a large group (teens and adults) in July, the food was excellent, a great variety of local and national dishes for everyone all freshly cooked. The staff are all helpful and the owner is friendly and attentive. Most of the staff speak at least some English, but the menus have been translated. It's all well... More

Atmosphere is great, many group were having dinner, laughing. Paintings in the restaurant were cool. Seafood dishes were great, I liked Pecorino Cheese (goat milk cheese?) the most. Also very reasonable. I recommend this restaurant if you plan to have a dinner in the Alghero town. If you are lucky, you can meet a cute cat there in the restaurant.... More

Walking through Alghero on a Friday evening I noticed quite a gathering of people outside this restaurant. Tables were full and obviously people were waiting their turn to be seated. Checked the reviews here where many mentioned they returned time and time again. Nothing more positive than a returning customer and so I made sure we were one of the... More

Everything about our meal was perfect. The setting is beautiful, service excellent, and the food delicious. My warm goats cheese salad was the best I've ever tasted, and the calamari was fantastic. Well worth a visit!

Visited 2 out of our 2 nights in Alghero in September and had selection of grilled fish which is absolutely superb - seabass + squid + langoustinnes. Very helpful when I requested a 'finger bowl' because that is the only thing missing. Just beware, eating outside is fab but there is not a 'no-smoking policy' and so it is bad... More

We stumbled on Paco by chance on our first night and decided after our meal that we would go back on our last night and, despite having lovely food elsewhere, that's what we did. The food is very tasty and beautifully presented, the staff are friendly and knowledgeable and the setting is warm and stylish. Highly recommended

We enjoyed dinner at Paco’s three times during our stay in the area in September and we were delighted every single time. The restaurant is located next to one of the old towers of Alghero on a wide piazza and the outside restaurant is given a romantic ambiance by candles on the dining tables. All the personnel were very welcoming,... More
