I found out about this restaurant from a Top 100 list, and I am so glad I did. The atmosphere is great, the food is delicious and the service was perfect. My only regret is that I couldn't have gone back the next night to try the items I wasn't able to try during my visit. I happened to be in Galveston for business, but Rudy & Paco is definitely worth another trip to the island!

I was meeting up with a friend of mine in her area, we hadn't seen each other in some time and I wanted an upscale restaurant, so she picked Rudy & Paco's.
In as much as we had a reservation, we still had to wait a good 30 minutes before being seated, but the hostess did a great job keeping us posted and I understand completely that some parties don't leave when they are expected and/or calculated to.

The server was attentive, she knew what to do and when to do it (a pet peeve of mine).

The food was incredible, the presentation was very nice and it was all very fresh tasting.

If I am in Galveston again and in need of a good meal, I'll definitely consider this restaurant again.

Always fun to come to R & P's. Great food and service. This time we had the crab cake and ceviche for starters - fantastic!! Wish the parking were better, but we always plan ahead.

Fantastic. First time at the restaurant for dinner. Weird there was no valet on such a cold night. Food and service made up for that though.

Caymus is not 10 dollars as it says on the menu however. 🤷‍♂️
