If you are a vodka lover this is the place to go.

If you are a vodka lover this is the place to go. They have a list of hundreds of vodkas from all over the world - my new favourite is Crater Lake (from Oregon!!!) The beet salad was very good too!

We wanted to eat seafood so used the GPS to look for restaurants in our area. This came up and without any expectation off we went. We found it was on the first floor of a shopping area, with great views of both the busy street below and the mountains in the background. We asked for a seat outside in... More

There was a 20% off, promotional evening at Pacifica Saturday, Feb 6th, and as we have not visited since Nov 2015, we thought it would be time to return to this, our favorite seafood place in the desert.
