Cuisine: Gluten Free, Mexican, Vegan
Price Point: Mains from £10-£25
Ranked: #5 of 120 restaurants in London

Nestled in the middle of Covent Garden is Café Pacifico, offering you heart-warming Mexican food, a family-friendly atmosphere and of course, the best Margarita in town.

Whether you’re after a relaxed meal with the family or a boozy, tequila-fuelled supper with your mates, Café Pacifico caters for any gathering. It’s distinctly wooden interior, complete with neon lights and low ceilings keep the atmosphere intimate, friendly and warm.

There are plenty of Mexican favourites on the menu to fill your boots. Napkins at the ready; the nachos are a very hands-on affair and you might have to roll up your sleeves if you’ve been tempted by the sumptuous burritos, juicy fajitas or crunchy tacos. We didn’t say it’d be pretty! Luckily, the desserts are a neater affair. Deep fried ice-cream and churros can be eaten with a spoon after all.

Of course, there is tequila and margaritas aplenty, alongside an extensive list of cocktails with lots of variations on the classic mojito and some Pacifico specials for the more adventurous amongst you. Not content with just a glass? Get a pitcher in! And if you’re not a cocktail fan, there are plenty of beers and wines to go alongside your tequila slammers.

Reviews

Had a wonderful time at Cafe Pacifico last night, went out to celebrate fathers day with the family. The service was excellent even thought the place was busy. Food was delicious - would highly recommend the burrito and the quesadilla.
The homemade lemonade was very refreshing! Overall a great experience and I will certainly be returning.

Cafe Pacifico is one of my favourite places in Covent Garden. Vibrant, lively and energetic. Friendly prompt attentive staff. Fabulous food! Fajitas are my go-to item on the menu, love preparing my own warps and filling with sauces. Great cocktail list too. Highly recommended!

A great midweek meal at Cafe Pacifco... a great find with the huge amount of Mexican on offer in London. I had the chicken chimichangas which were delish but total food envy of my pal who has the duck and blueberry tacos. Would go back for sure!

Cafe Pacifico is one of my favourites. The food is always fresh and tasty. The menu is quite extensive so I’m still go though, trying everything it has to offer. This time I had chimichanga and fajitas (sizzling hot, my favourite). The place is big and the staff are friendly and attentive. Always a pleasure to return. Would highly recommend to everyone!

My friend & I had a very enjoyable experience at Cafe Pacifico. The service was excellent with the servers patient and helpful, especially as my friend is allergic to capsicum and had to ensure there wasn't any trace in her main course.
The food is exquisite. We both had tacos - I had the duck which I will definitely have again. I haven't tasted anything quite like it before! My friend had the vegetarian tacos which she enjoyed just as much. The only downside to hers - and definitely a huge plus for me - is that the duck tacos came with a side of sweet potato fries which I loved!
We had a mango margarita "mocktail" - it was terrific. Who needs alcohol when without tastes so delicious?!
We will return ..

We arrived for our table and were greeted right away by two lovely ladies; as soon as I gave the name of the reservation, it was confirmed as a First Table booking and we were led to our table.
Within a few minutes a lady approached us to take our drinks order. I asked what juices they had, and was offered a non alcoholic raspberry margarita, my friend opted for the original recipe! Both drinks arrived and were delicious- mine was tasty, had fresh raspberries and wasn’t oversweet.

We took time ordering our food (I don’t eat meat nevertheless I had a large choice). I chose the prawn and sea bass dish (without the prawns -no trouble changing the choice) and my friend had the cod dish. Both were delicious; we both thought the cod fish was enormous and could have fed two people, whereas mine was a perfect portion. Both deemed tasty. Had we realised the size of the portions we wouldn’t have ordered sides, but decided they sounded so interesting that we had to sample at least two, do ordered the mushroom and plantain sides. Delicious too but weren’t needed!
The restaurant filled up within 1/2 an hour of our arrival, and we watched other food being served. Everything looked delicious.
All the staff were very friendly and attentive; that coupled with a great atmosphere and really tasty food means that we both agreed we will definitely return. Thank you First Table for introducing this restaurant to us.

We had a great time at Cafe Pacifico! The food was delicious, particularly the duck tacos and the beef/vegetable fajitas - fantastic! This was my first time using First Table and I will definitely be using again - I needed to alter my booking from 3 people to 4, and first table responded to my email query almost immediately and rebooked the table for me to include the change, meaning the offer was for all of us. Thank you First Table and thank you Cafe Pacifico!

We were greeted quite quickly and shown our table. We ordered margaritas which they were amazing but can’t say the same for the food. Guacamole was plain and missing some taste and lime. The sharing mix platter was ok, but some came cold. My boyfriend ordered el pastor tacos, it was delivered in quite a funky way, but the meat was chewy and not tasty. I had to secretly take some out. The tortillas were dry and hard around the edges. I ordered enfrijoladas, it was good in all of them. We were asked at least 4 times if everything was ok, but I don’t like to complain. So all in all, I wouldn’t go to cafe Pacifico if I want to have a tasty Mexican food, but would only go for margaritas.

The food was lovely although maybe not the most authentic which is a shame as there seems to be a distinct lack of authentic Mexican food in London! The service was amazing and everyone was delightful from start to finish! Good selection of beers and the decor is very cool. Would go back as they seem to have a large selection of cocktails and the ambiance was awesome!

Cool venue with very tasty food and great drinks selection. The cocktail menu is extensive and not just your standard cocktails. The food as well was fantastic and a little bit different to a normal Mexican restaurant, we tried the duck tacos for example which were fantastic. Would definitely return here again and try other things from the menu.

Good place for the lovers of Mexican food aficionados, otherwise you won't enjoy. In regards to the food itself, I ordered tacos with the duck that was dry, with an excessive amount of greenery underneath. Mushrooms were again dry whereas you expected them to be succulent. But again - that's Mexican thing I assume. The way they do lets put it that way.

Cafe Pacifico is always a joy to return. Attentive and prompt service. Delicious food. This time we went for 2 sharing degustation plates - one from the starters and another from the mains. Both were very good. Will be back for more!

We had the chimichanga, duck tacos, seabass and prawn tacos, and jalapeño poppers. Food was fine, just nothing special. Also, all of our food wasn’t quite hot, felt like it had been sitting around for a while before being served. Service was fast and we were in and out quick enough to make it to the theatre.
