This place was terrible! We sat at the bar and ordered a couple of items for dinner. I ordered Nachos which were so horrible that I could only eat a couple of bites. My boyfriend ordered a fajita meal which was also really disappointing. The food actually made me sick. I love Mexican food and was really hoping that I... More

Great Mexican food, including pollo in mole sauce, and wonderful service. Special feature: Live mariachi music is free on Friday nights. A group of enthusiastic mariachi musicians plays song after song, creating a vibrant and joyful atmosphere. (Totally free, but you can put something in the tip basket on your way out. We did!)

The food here was great and the service was fairly fast. Typical selection of Mexican food items on the menu. I love Mexican rice and thought theirs was very good. I had a beef enchilada and it was not spicy, which was a good thing for me.

We were torn as to where to dine in Calistoga because there are so many good places and we only had one night. After much consideration, we decided to give Pacifico Mexico Restaurant a try. We were NOT disappointed! We started with a pitcher of the Millionaire Margaritas ($40.00)! They were fantastic and served in water glasses! (We walked to... More

Excellent food in a charming old building. Large portions. You shouldn't leave hungry. Service was excellent also. Will definitely return when in the area.

Food was excellent. Service was great up front then fell short at the end of the meal. Took a long time for dessert to come out and to get the bill. Margaritas are run of the mill and iced down. Cost is reasonable for food.

Met another couple here a couple weeks ago when they opened at 11:00 am. We were offered either breakfast or lunch menus and we all decided on breakfast. It was a warm morning with a nice breeze and we chose the side patio which is nicely shaded. On a nice day, this is the way to go. Food was good,... More

Stopped at this restaurant after arriving in Calistoga for the day. Everything we ordered was tasty. Also the portions were large and very filling. The guacamole dip was to die for, all homemade. Went there for lunch. And wanted to go back for dinner but ran out of time.

We went to this restaurant on a trip advisor recommendation. We definitely not disappointed. The service was excellent and the food was great. The salsa is amazing. I had flautas with three different sauces (all great). My husband had pork carnitas and he couldn't say enough to good things. Don't miss this restaurant.
