The restaurant is in a pretty nondescript square on the edge of the Old Town. The area looks better when it gets dark and lights come on. We went following reading reviews on Trip Advisor. We only just about managed to get in without booking and the place was very busy all evening. On the plus side the boss spoke... More

Me and my husband found this place on day 3 of our week long holiday and had such a lovely meal we went back for our last night. Paco's is a charming place with an inviting terrace, a friendly greeting (not always found at other restaurants) and the food was fresh, tasty and plentiful. I was particularly impressed when advised... More

I see little point endorsing the positive reviews about Pacos, it is an excellent restaurant run by people that care what you think. I will endorse the baby squid with onion pickle which was possibly the best squid dish I have ever eaten!

My partner and I really enjoyed our meal here. The food was excellent and the setting in the north of the town was very pleasant. The owner speaks perfect english and was very attentive and spent time speaking with customers about their stay. The house wine was excellent; and the price even better! My only criticism would be the service... More

Paco's Restaurant is a lovely place with the possibilty of sitting outside and enjoy the sunset. The waiters are friendly and nice and the meals were excellent, varying and fresh-made. We went there one evening as we passed by accidently and we were coming back a few times afterwards. If you are looking for a nice place, this is what... More

I really enjoyed it here, good food, great service and good value. I had some amazing mussels here with good wine. I found each course was of a really good standard and my girlfriend said the same. In a town of great eating this was the only place we contemplated going back to. Highly recommended.

I visited the beautiful island of Sardinia and happened to walk into Paco's, attracted by the terrace. It was a discovery that led me to enjoy the rest of my lunches and dinners at this restaurant during my stay in Alghero...the friendliness of the owners and their staff, the delicious food, the atmosphere - it was all beyond and above...

We went to Paco after 5 days in Alghero and really noticed the friendliness of the staff (many restaurants don't seem so bothered about friendly service!) We were advised really well by the man I assume was the manager. The baby calamari was the best calamari I have ever had, the mussels were also great and we both had steak,... More

I've been to Alghero 3 times and never used tripadvisor to search for a restaurant but i'm happy i finally did because it made me discover Paco's. On my first day i was careful ordering my food so i started of with a simple mussel soup end a grilled seafood platter. The "simple" mussel soup revealed to be something fantastic... More
