Place was busy and we appreciated getting a table without a reservation. However service was very slow, chicken mole extremely tough, overall our group of ten rated their dinner from not great to average. Prices very reasonable, but we wouldn't go back. In addition their mariachi band was so loud and played for so very long without breaks. They literally... More

Nice food, convenient location, good service, did not need reservations on a Saturday night even though the restaurant was mostly full. We wanted something easy after hassling with availability and expense at other restaurants in the area. I would go there again.

We visited Pacifico for dinner with another couple and the food was great. They have the best carnitas! The guacamole and the margaritas are delicious and the chips are warm and fresh. I am certain we will go back during our next visit to Calistoga!

We were hungry. It was getting late. We drove by and the restaurant was clearly open, so we decided to give it a shot. We were pleasantly surprised with the atmosphere, which could have actually been in any town in Mexico I have been to. The full bar and extensive menu provided many choices. The rice was fluffy and delicious,... More

We've missed this place despite visiting Calistoga many times. However we made two visits inside a week and were pleasantly surprised on both occasions with fast service, good food and good value. Would definitely recommend.

Stopped for lunch while touring local wine vineyards. Great food and Excellent margaritas!! Sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful California weather. Great location in wine country for a lunch break and Calistoga in general was a very enjoyable town to visit.

We went here on some recommendations of the locals and really glad we did. The food was really good - we had a beef burrito and a delicious prawn dish. Also great cocktails.

This place was one of our favorites in a week of dining, and I don't even like jalapenos or cilantro. ALL ingredients were fresh, delicious and very well prepared. I had tiger shrimp something-or-other and the creamy tomatillo sauce on top was absolutely delicious and highly complementary to the dish. My wife had the enchilada ranchera with shredded chicken and... More

We dropped by for a drink and some finger food. The service was very friendly and the guacamole was excellent! We sat on the small terrace and enjoyed the Calistoga scenery.
