Luckily we had booked as the place was full. Very busy. The service was quick and efficient. We ordered different dishes and sort of mixed and matched. Both dishes were excellent. The lady serving was very helpful, adjusting the table, offering extra items if we needed them or ran out. We were sitting outside and it was unfortunate that later... More

I always felt the food and drinks were ok at El Pacifico, however I just couldn't stand the service! So slow, extremely forgetful and just all in all, bad! I stopped going after trying it out a few times...waiting for a bowl of nachos for 40min, is bad! Anyway, things seem to have changed! We went last week and wow!... More

Regularly come here with friends for dinner. The decor of the place is beautifully Mexican, with lots of colors, candles and pretty details. The food is very fresh and tasty (great guacamole). I love the tasty vegetarian options, especially the salad with grilled veg. Great place for a laid-back dinner in a vibrant fun place. Good date spot too!

Comfy chairs, friendly wait staff, well priced, amazingly tasty cocktails, great atmosphere in a great neighborhood... what isn't to love?! I went with a friend for a catch up over dinner and drinks. I love the atmosphere of the restaurant; kind of a Mexican feel but not comical and animated. We ordered the small nacho's to start, which were big... More

Had an early evening 'drinks & snacks' with my mother. We were on a discover the neighbor hood tour and this restaurant being close to her home is an ideal place for a very decent margarita or two & some Mexican tapas. Very busy evening with groups taking most of the tables, but despite being told to expect a wait... More

I went to this restaurant with my father to have a little "father-daughter" moment, and it was quite nice. We were here at the "happy hour" so the coktails were a bit cheaper, I took one without alcohol ( I think it was the "green pacific") and it was really tasty and fresh. The food was also very nice and... More

Going to El Pacifico is always, all in all, a fun and great experience! The decoration immediately takes you to Mexico: vibrant and colorful and the staff is super nice! The food is very yummy and the portions have considerable sizes. One of my favorite restaurants in FFM. Always have a blast when I go there!

I really enjoyed everything: decoration, music, food, service and of course the strawberry (frozen) margaritas!

Upon arrival was quickly seated, and the staff were quite friendly. The menu was large and reasonably well priced. However, the food was average at best. We ordered nachos with guacamole to start - guacamole was good but the nachos were bland, and not warm. When our mains arrived (enchiladas and a burrito) the presentation was not great. The enchiladas... More
