I wasn't as impressed as I had been wooed by reviews of how great it was. Outside seating is limited we ate in like a enclosed corridor which wasn't impressive at all. The light breaded shrimp I had was delicious but that was all that...More

Always a treat to go to Pacifica. Tuesdays are half price on wine. A treat in itself. The seafood dishes never disappoint. The staff are both knowledgeable, attentive and pleasant. We make a point of going to Pacifica every time we visit the desert.
