Good stop in Calistoga

Food was excellent. Service was great up front then fell short at the end of the meal. Took a long time for dessert to come out and to get the bill. Margaritas are run of the mill and iced down. Cost is reasonable for food.

Excellent food in a charming old building. Large portions. You shouldn't leave hungry. Service was excellent also. Will definitely return when in the area.

Met another couple here a couple weeks ago when they opened at 11:00 am. We were offered either breakfast or lunch menus and we all decided on breakfast. It was a warm morning with a nice breeze and we chose the side patio which is nicely shaded. On a nice day, this is the way to go. Food was good,... More

Stopped at this restaurant after arriving in Calistoga for the day. Everything we ordered was tasty. Also the portions were large and very filling. The guacamole dip was to die for, all homemade. Went there for lunch. And wanted to go back for dinner but ran out of time.

We went to this restaurant on a trip advisor recommendation. We definitely not disappointed. The service was excellent and the food was great. The salsa is amazing. I had flautas with three different sauces (all great). My husband had pork carnitas and he couldn't say enough to good things. Don't miss this restaurant.

The food here is really good! I had their fish tacos combo and their chips and salsa were pretty good too. My husband had one of their tamales, some of the best we've tasted. We sat outside and enjoyed the atmosphere. Our waitress was SUPER nice and gave us great service. We really enjoyed out time here.

Great lunch, very fast service. And the food was a great TexMex. I highly recommend it. Portions were huge. My wife and I should have shares.

This restaurant has great classic Mexican food. They are family friendly, they have two separate rooms. The drinks are a little pricey if it's just two adults. But we have also been with a larger parties and if you are sharing pitchers it works out JUST FINE. Go on a date, or with a large party!!!

There are several Mexican restaurants in Calistoga, but Pacifico is the nicest. It's also in a great location, just a block off the highway down Lincoln. Pacifico has a very extensive menu offering items often not found in more pedestrian restaurants. I had the hand-made tamales (one each, pork and chicken), which were delicious and had plenty of meat. My... More
