The food and service were outstanding. We had ceviche, spinach salad and snapper on raspberry chipotle with crabmeat.h The food was superb and the atmosphere relaxed with no table turnover rush. Sharing of appetizer, salad and entree was graciously received and beautifully wserved. The waitstaff was experienced and professional with excellent suggestions without appearing overbearing or intrusive. Comfortably elegant atmosphere.

I visited Rudy and Paco's as an out of towner celebrating my wife's birthday. The restuarant and service is 5 star. Food is original, tasty and well presented. The service is of the highest quality. Rudy and Paco's would be rated as outstanding in any venue. It is a star in Galveston. However, one must bring their wallet as this... More

Service was very good and food was good, but not as gourmet as I expected based on other reviews - and expensive.

The service sets this place apart. The food was delicious with a quaint atmosphere. The only complaint is the noise level when its full. Very popular place.

Great food, service was top notch. free fried plantains served with two sauces and complimentary bread from the owner. I had the salmon and she had the plantain crusted chicken, the empanada appetizer is a must. Will return next time on island. Used open table for reservations.

Reservations a must. Seating at a premium. No shorts, tee shirts or bathing suits if you plan to eat here. The atmosphere is very relaxing and the servers are on top of your every desire. Mostly seafood but pastas and meats are available on their limited menu. The wine list is extensive and you can actually rent a locker along... More

Very good food, variety, beautiful restaurant and excellent service. We went two days to eat because we wanted to try different dishes. The portions are big and the food is delicious. Do not leave Galveston without eating there!
