Immediately after the graduation ceremony this place offered the place for celebration and relaxation with lots of cheers. Good stock of beers and wines with cocktails it offered a perfect lunch with Burrito and and Veggie Sandwich and Ensalada con Salmon with Cubano.

We are always looking for restaurants that can cook better than us. Pacifico has a great kitchen. The ropa vieja is amazing, and all their seafood dishes are great in this place.We are always pleased and happy with the food and atmosphere.
