We loved our trip to Paco's! We were the only people there initially (March is a quiet month) but some other guests did arrive later on. The food was delicious and the service was really friendly, although I think we were lucky that the owner was there at the time but is not always. He gave us some great advice... More

Overall it was the among the best restaurants e've tried in Sardinia. Sadly we only discovered it on our last evening on the island.... More

We dined at pacos two nights of the four we stayed in Alghero it was that good! We stayed in the apartment owned by the owner of pacos and he made our time in Alghero very enjoyable and easy. The first day we dined at pacos we chose dishes off the menu, and all of our meals were absolutely delicious... More

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!
