    Great restaurant but service was very slow. I could understand if the restaurant was really busy but there were only about another 8 tables in. So I would expect it to be a bit more efficient. We waited about 20 minutes for our drinks. Our drinks arrived just as the starters did. And at the end of our meal we tried to get someone's attention for the bill and gave up after several waiters walked by. Other than that, the food was great and we had a lovely night.

    We have visited Paco's often over many years with our three children (two of whom are now adults!) and we have genuinely never had a bad meal/experience. The service is always totally focussed and professional and the food is consistent and reliable. When the restaurant is busy, which is quite often, I find the atmosphere a little noisy for good conversation, but for a family meal out you really can't beat it.

    We enjoyed the satisfying hearty tex mex Paco's is famous for! The decor's not changed in years and it's great! The staff were trying very hard, but there was no atmosphere of fun! If it was my restaurant I'd be encouraging staff to relax and be themselves. Cocktails were a let-down.

    The fillet with jalepeno cheese sauce, cooked medium-rare is my favourite meal and I regularly partake in this juicy, delectable offering. In fact, i've been coming back to it for at least 12 years and it has yet to disappoint. I love this steak.

    We've been using Pacos since it opened, and this restaurant rarely disappoints. Service is friendly, food arrives in good time, and is good quality for the price. Good ambience, with a buzz when it's busy. One of the few non Chines/Indian restaurants where you can book a post show meal, as it's open until 11:00 PM (last orders 10:45)

    Had a lovely meal at paco's with family and was nice that they payed attention to detail in my online booking. Lovely greeting when we came in and staff friendly and attentive. We had a fair wait for our food and kids were getting tetchy. When it did arrive, all plates arrived at once and looked lovely. Only downside was the wraps for fajitas.. They were a bit undercooked and we could have done with a bit more salsa, sour cream etc. would def go back tho. Be great for a big party.

    Pre-theatre dinner (though we didn't ask to be served before a given time). Room very full, buzzing and pretty noisy. Pre-booked table in the corner fine and we could hear ourselves talk. Gave ourselves 90 minutes to eat but main course (beautiful to look at and eat) was slow to arrive. Had to rather rush - which was a shame - and didn't have the dessert we planned. Waitress very good - seemed a little inexperienced but did everything well so presumably good training somewhere. Bill came promptly when asked and we made the theatre in good time. Neither the noisy room nor the slow mains were an issue - next time we'll book an earlier table and check we're as far as possible away from the family tables!

    Service, pretty poor but the guy was in training. Food, well chips, undercooked, pale, unappetising, burger, ok but no sauce of any description offered. All in all pretty bland and a far cry from the interior look of the place would suggest what you were about to experience. Won't be going again.

    I enjoyed my outing at Pacos with a mate on Saturday. The food was deliciously tasty in my opinion, the drinks were good, prices are not bad, but can be expensive at some aspects. If you love burgers, steak and chicken nuggets. I highly recommend this to you, it's a good place for decent types of food and not just steak. It is also a good place for treating your family out for a treat.

    First time at Paco's, for pre-theatre meal. Didn't know what to expect, so allowed plenty of time for meal. Restaurant was very busy and clearly popular but service was very prompt so no concerns at running out of time. Food was excellent, with good choice. Reasonable range of wines. Altogether, good value, and an experience I will happily repeat.

    Very easy online booking and followed the request submitted. Noisy party left not long after we arrived so was quieter then. Good service and helpful staff - asked about portion sizes for children and was accurate what came. Thank goodness the menu has now changed a bit although still quite a lot on it. "Safe" night out in that you know what you're going to get and normally OK food.

    We have been visiting Perth for over 10 years and I used to work there. Paco's has always been our favourite restaurant in town, but the standard of food has dropped considerably in the past two years. Apart from the menu changing to a more Italian vice Californian choice (which was okay), my wife ordered a Fajita sizzler which arrived on a heavy metal plate, but without any sizzle (just not hot enough). Worse, were the vegetables that arrived for both of us - overcooked and sloppy. The rest of the dining experience was okay, but this pretty much spoiled our visit and we intend trying a different restaurant next time in Perth.
