Lovely food and pretty good service considering it was really busy. I do find it quite difficult to hear when it is busy.

An evening at Pacos is not just about the food. The atmosphere all adds to the experience. Great place to go with friends or on business. Just a great place to go, well done Pacos

A very pleasant experience, from the welcome at the door to the farewell on leaving. Young waiter was efficient, food was good ( Fettuccini chicken very tasty) and particularly liked that we were given choice of three sizes of 'wine by the glass'. Service was good too, as we were going on to the theatre just across the road - so no panic! Be aware though that the toilets are up two flights of stairs.

I didn't feel the restaurant was as good as it used to be. It was very expensive for what I would describe as average food. I used to rave about the restaurant, but was in the main, disappointed with the experience even although there was no complaint I felt was necessary to pass on at the time.

I'd recommend but not for a Valentine meal. No special menu or touches , kids running about, did feel like it was McDonald's. A shame because the food and service is great.

Lovely atmosphere and rustic family friendly place, food was tasty, Fettuccini with chicken was yummy, my son confirms the salmon version equally as yummy, loads of flavour and just the right amount to leave room for pudding. Salted caramel meringue was tasty, would have referred a bit of stickiness in meringue but tasty all the same, my partner loved the chocolate cake. Staff couldn’t have been more attentive, just the right level of interaction; loved the uniform of the trainees staying on rear of shirt ‘training to be great’...they are well on they’re way to great. You’ll not be disappointed with a visit.

First table offered was cold and draughty, taken up a few steps with disabled mother to a warmer area. Food was cold and baked potatoes were dry and had no butter in them. Coleslaw was dry not enough mayonnaise and salad had no dressing, asked for a sandwich with soup but served a toasted sandwich; overall wasn’t a good experience at all. Won’t hurry back.

On my second visit to Pacos in a while I left a little disappointed. I found there was a distinct lack of ambience, the restaurant was cold in temperature, had bright lighting and the music was too quiet. The food I can’t complain about, I had a lovely prawn tagliatelle and my friends food was nice too. We had a lot of cocktails and I will comment that they were not all the same. We would order one type then order it a while later and it would taste completely different, my recommendation is to have all the staff making them the same way because evidently that is not happening. I’m not against coming back, I just think for a place with a good reputation it could do with upholding this title instead of slacking off. The staff were wonderful and very friendly also.

Always a delight to go to PACOS, owner managed and the team are clearly focused on the customers having a great time; helpful, courteous. Avoid the run of the mill chains, go local!

Fantastic restaurant. Put in a special request for a corner table as I suffer from anxiety and struggle being in the middle of crowded places and even when we arrived they made sure it was okay. Service was mostly great. Main guy was spot on. Very cheery and chatted about everything. Excellent to find a fellow espresso martini fan. Had a girl bring us drinks though and her attitude stunk. Sounded like she was forcing the words out her mouth and didn't even attempt a smile. Food was amazing. Smaller portions than I was expecting given the price but cooked to perfection and absolutely can't complain. Very retro laid back restaurant with a massive menu and range of choices for everyone. Bit of a hike to the toilets though! Definitely be back.

My daughter (age 13) and I had a meal before an event at the concert hall. She had a plain cheese and tomato pizza, I had chicken with haggis and pepper sauce, and it was absolutely outstanding. I also had a couple of glasses of wine, and the Bill was very reasonable.

A good notch up from "good bar food" but still towards the fast food end of the market. Very handy for pre-theatre meals as it's just across the walkway from Perth Concert Hall (and Museum next door) and a few minutes walk from Perth Theatre. Service is fast, staff are very responsive and the menu is wide extending beyond burgers, pizza and pasta to include some regional ingredients (black pudding, haggis, local lamb etc.). Family friendly but there is a continual buzz of conversation not really noisy in the jarring sense just a steady background thrumming meaning there's little opportunity to whisper sweet nothings in a loved ones ear - they have to be quite assertive and well articulated nothings! but the food is good and the service is fast.

Arranged a meal for 3 friends coming together for a catch up face to face. We live so far away from each other now. Needed enough quiet to chat, nice drinks and a good meal.
All of the above was delivered on Monday night, service was excellent, cocktails were lovely and the food was great, very reasonable too
Would definitely come again

Had a great evening here the only thing letting it down was the waiter taking my plate away before getting a chance to say I was not finished eating, apart from that nice cocktails and great atmosphere.
