Third visit to this super restaurant - earlier visits were at lunchtime - fairly quiet. Our visit on Sat was in the evening and the place was super lively - food fabulous, waiting staff super friendly. Cant fault this place - highly recommend!!
The food is amazing and service is good. Even though the restaurant is tucked away it's always packed but with a great atmosphere so worth booking in advance.
Great atmosphere and service was spot on. The nachos and guacamole were amazing! Only thing that let it down was one of the mains the chicken tacos were a bit plain just chicken and salad in them - otherwise definitely recommend - all other food was spot on.
We had a fabulous evening at Cafe Pacifico - our food was great, electric atmosphere, and exceptional service!! We will definitely be back for another evening.
Booking with Quandoo, via the website, was quick and easy. We visited Cafe Pacifico last Friday evening to celebrate my wife's 40th birthday. Our table was booked for 7pm, so we knew it would be very busy and it was heaving. The staff were fabulous, friendly, helpful, informative and quick, even pointing out the Margarita that was on offer for the same price as the ordinary one, using a particular tequila they had on at the time, it was worth it too, wonderful flavours. Despite every table being full we never had to wait long to give an order and our food and drinks arrived much quicker than I would have expected considering the number of people they were dealing with and we never felt rushed at any point to make way for more customers. The food was amazing, we all had fajitas - chicken and skirt steak and chicken - there was plenty of it, it was steaming hot, cooked to perfection and delicious, as were the accompanying dishes. Getting more tortillas was easy and quick too, the staff being very attentive and quick to respond. We finished off the meal with a shot of tequila, a delicious way to end the meal. Even though the restaurant was packed and everyone was enjoying themselves, the background music and noise level of chatter never intruded on our own conversation and made for a great atmosphere. Thank you Cafe Pacifico, we will be back!
Great food - extremely poor service. The waiting staff were rude to us - we booked a table of 8 for 19:30 and they informed us they would need the table back for 21:30. When we arrived the table wasn't ready - which is not so much of a problem, we could wait. Following this and during the night, when we asked staff who were standing around talking near us to take a drinks order - they said 'just one minute please' and then ignored us. We asked for the dessert menus and again the waitress ignored us and delivered these when we grabbed her attention 10 minutes later. At 21:40 we had to grab her attention to take a dessert order because apparently the table was required back by 21:30??? Anyway, it was a shame as the food really is good there and reasonably priced for central London - don't expect the service to be the same.
My friends and I had a good evening at Café Pacifico. Table was ready on time (very glad pre-booked as was very full) and the staff are friendly and helpful. We had no delays and the food was good, what you would expect from a Mexican, hearty and plenty of it. It was very noisy as so full, especially the bar area (it is Christmas time!) and the tables are very close together so you are very near your neighbours. Saying that the way the tables were positioned (diagonally where we were) meant you could get in and out without disturbing others and not be looking at each other. Not expensive and the Churros are great to share!
Cafe Pacifico is a must if you are in London such lovely food, quick service and great staff nothing is a problem for them. Easy reach off Covent Garden, always a must for us.
We booked via quandoo and unfortunately our booking was not in the system. However, the staff set up our table promptly and resolved the inconvenience -luckily the restaurant was not full. Service was good, our waiter was probably new but called some senior staff to answer our allergy questions. We were not impressed by the food though, I think there are better options for Mexican restaurants in the area. Amazing selection of drinks, although we could not drink on that night!
Cafe Pacifico has maintained its excellent standards for all the years I have been visiting (25 years to be exact) ; great atmosphere with matching food. Well done and thank-you to all involved.
