What a wonderful find! Visiting Virginia Beach and did a search for tapas....WOW! Every selection was absolutely fabulous. We started with the Crispy Goat Cheese and Polenta Balls and the Potstickers and moved on to the Slow Roasted Herb Duck Leg and the Hickory Smoked...veal Short Rib. The flavors across the board were amazing. Hope to return soon and try some of the other delicious sounding dishes.More

We literally drive hours and get a hotel room in order to have dinner and drinks here. Chris is great and they have treated us like family even though we only make it down 5 times a year.

Went here for drinks with our family and it was very nice to relax here and have a few drinks and celebrate the holidays.

We found this place because of reviews, but when you drive up, it seems like it is not even open, not even a real restaurant, a real hole in the wall. But we went in and found a charming tapas bar, with great service and...great tapas. We started with 3, while we decided on which of the others we would add to the fun. When they brought the first 3, we ordered 2 more. The timing was great fun. We ended up ordering 2 more, and for 5 of us, we were filled just right. All the flavors were outstanding. My daughter had lived in Spain and said that this was the first time a place really knew how to do tapas.More

We are long time residents but had not made our way here until recently. Whoa, we have been missing out. This is a very nice find. Tapas based menu is across the board sure to please just about any pallet. Regular specials help provide additional...variety. The drink menu to solid. Try the oatmeal cookie drink...amazing. Sure you can sit by the cozy couches by the fire or at the bar. There is plenty of seating for different sized groups. However, the place to see the action is at the kitchen bar. These guys are on their game. A pleasure to watch them work and banter. Food is spot on. Seafood trio pasta special is amazing. The hot chicken is too good to pass up...and I didn't. I had it twice. Staff are friendly the place is very cozy.More

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner here. Loved all the tapas we got and the dirty martinis were perfect. Order the bread and butter - you won’t be disappointed. We had a really great time and I can’t wait to go back.

My son was out of town and sent me a last day gift coupon that was expiring that night, so I ordered a dinner sirloin steak and pork chop to go. I ate them over the next two days. Even though I reheated them, they...both came out delicious and filled me up. Really friendly waitress. This is a tapas type place and is a good place to spend some time talking and munching on some great tasting good.More

After trying to check out their sister restaurant, Crackers in Norfolk because they listed a Caramel Apple Martini, we went here because the other one didn't have the ingredients in the fall on a Monday. Complete waste of time for our rare date night. Pacifica...did not have that on their martini menu, but we called ahead to ask. The vibe was like a hole in the wall meets hip and relaxed. We liked the vibe of this very chill place. The greeter and waitress, Becca (I think) carried on that theme as well. She told us we could go inside, outside or back and forth. We only came for pre dinner drinks but the menu looked pretty interesting. They also had a huge list of martinis and most importantly for that fall night occasion we were celebrating, as they should, they had the ingredients to make them. The taste of my martini was just so so, but it was strong, so, good enough. My husband had some special Octoberfest beer and enjoyed it. Relaxing spot near the beach that we would definitely go to again for drinks and maybe dinner as well. Cheers!More

This is one of our favorite spots in Virginia Beach. The outside can be deceiving. My husband and I go for every special occasion. This past weekend we went to celebrate our first anniversary. It was the perfect stop as usual. Staff is always so...friendly. The lighting and seating leads to a romantic vibe. The food is constantly changing with the season but we always get the meat and cheese board and bread and compound butter. Drinks are always strong but delicious. We have recommended Pacifica to our family and friends.More

Discovered Pacifica a few years ago and it’s always a stop for us when in Va Beach. Unique dishes, great drink menu and great service. Always try something different and have never been disappointed. Reasonably priced and an overall good vibe.
