It offers a great vibrant experience, not cheap though. Very good to start your night with. Booking is essential if you are planning to dine there, and if you find a place by the bar then you are lucky

This is the grand daddy of pubs/restaurants on Monot Street. It opened just after the war (circa 1993) while all around it were ruins. In fact we used to walk through war torn buildings to get to it. And today it remains an institution. You cannot visit Beirut nightlife and not make a stop at Pacifico. The ambience is typically quiet and relaxed with outdoors seating in the summer. The bar is a nice place to catch a drink and the bar tenders a ver friendly. The food is tex-mex and is slightly above average

Dinner at Pacifico was very good. My husband doesn't like Mexican food that much (he says they taste all the same) but he was pretty much pleased with the food we had. We ordered this biiiiig starters with a bit of everything with some beer that was the best way to start the night. Main dish ok, ended dinner with some shots of tequila. Restaurant got full after some time and music was nice, not loud.

The food is excellent...it's has a mixture of Mexican food and others
They make the tastiest margarita :)
The music is wonderful,not too loud..while you can enjoy having a conversation and eat and the same time
the place is divided into 2, a room for seated tables and next to it a room for drinks
and a patio on the old beirut Monot street as u can sit outside
the atmosphere is excellent ...
i've been going there for quite a long time...they have the nicest service and the nicest friendly staff
the average value of pacifico is not expensive...it's medium prices
classy mood and classy people
i so recommend

Just got back from dinner at Pacifico and I came away satisfied but not over impressed. On the plus side, the first things you notice in places like this are the decor and service and both of these items are first rate. You really do feel that you're in a Mexican cantina. Another plus is that the food is very good, especially the Flautas Montezuma that I sampled. On the negative side, especially for those used to Mexican food in the US, the portions are small and the prices are high. This is something to be expected in a boutique restaurant but not in one that specializes in Mexican food. You'll have to order dessert if you expect leave here full. Look to drop around $50 a head if you include a drink and dessert with your meal. If all that is OK with you, then this place is worth visiting.
