Live mariachi in Friday evenings! What fun! After dinner we went to sit at the bar to listen to the music. And the bartender helped me select some very fine sipping tequila. But the food: the signature chiles rellenos Pacifico. What a delight. Filled with nuts and mushrooms and raisins and covered in a creamy white cheese sauce. Coupled with... More

We were on our way for a massage and decided to stop here for lunch. We loved it. It's authenic Mexican. Everything we had was delicious. We loved the margaritas too.

The Margaritas are strong and excellent, the staff friendly. The pork carnitas the highlight. Highly recommend.

Good food. Good drinks. Good prices. Good service. What more needs to be said. An enjoyable break from wine tasting and winery atmospheres.

The restaurant was fairly empty on a Wed. for dinner. The food was typical Mexican- ok but not inspiring. It was fair- heavy with lots of rice and beans. I had the quesadilla appetizer and it was better than the dishes the other three people in our party had.

We had lunch here and found that it was good value for pretty authentic Mexican cuisine. I had tamales and my wife had a burrito. Friendly, efficient, basic service supported this food. Chips and salsa were house made and good. Ambiance felt like a bar with the football game the main attraction.

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!
