Very nice experience

I was craving "piangua" and was able to satisfy that (not as good as my mom used to make but hey) something that I will not find in many places. I got a huge portion, only complain is that it was a bit salty. Ceviche was also very good. Definitely worth the visit.

We ordered entries, taste was good but presentation was not the best. I asked for a "lulada" and they did not have. Hot was terrible, some fans helped a little bit.

Second time in Cali and took my parents out for lunch. We had a great meal but even though the restaurant was empty when we got there, the head waiter that seemed very experienced, gave us the menu and stood there without even giving us time to see it. When we were done, the check was brought without asking for... More

If you have plans to visit Cali don't miss Pacifico. If you are looking for traditional food from this area of the country, this is the right place to go to. You will find a variety of seafood, fishes, rices from the Colombian Pacific cooked with the very original recipes inherited from the ancesters. This is not a so fancy... More

With a good cazuela and average price this can be a good choice for travelers.. And it is not so hot.. Ventilated and friendly people.

In a nutshell you get real food from our pacific coast at a great price. Located in Granada next to other restaurants and places for nightlife. Make a reservation and remember that plates are quite big so go one by one. Can't wait to go back for the souls and shrimp platters

Enjoyed lunch at Pacifico. I loved the lulo fruit juice. It was a sensory experience. The presentation even looked wonderful of this juice, with floating fruit and seeds at the bottom. The Timbal de Mariscos, a fish dish topped with squid, conch, crab, was a lovely curry dish. Order it with rice instead of the plaintains to fully savor the... More

I came for lunch and had the cazuela de mariscos which was delicious, very fresh and not a hint of a fishy flavor. It was served in a carved coconut, which made it extra special. The only weird thing was that my friend and I were the only diners here! It must be more of a dinner place. Service was... More

This restaurant is a little pricey but worth it. It has great seafood from the Pacific coast. The ambiance and service is also great. Great location.
