Rudy & Paco Restaurant & Bar Ratings and Reviews
This was a dual birthday celebration in conjunction with Mardi Gras. We were seated promptly, drink orders taken promptly and many dinner options were explained in detail. Food was hot and delicious without too long a wait.
We will definitely return to this restaurant. The food was awesome and atmosphere was was perfect for dinner conversation.
Thanks so much for a very special evening
It was my first valentines with my gf and we had an amazing experience. They went out of their way and even put together a surprise "Happy 1st Valentine's Day dessert plate" after I just added that info in the comment section. I highly recommend this restaurant excellent service and food!
Was treating my visiting mother-in-law to a Valentine lunch. Had reservations for 11:30 but had to wait for almost 30 minutes before seating and by the time we were seated several menu items had already been sold out. Also, I ordered a Cuba Libra (rum and coke w/lime) and the bartender sent me a rum and soda with a whole lime in the glass. The waitress, however, did her best to make up for it and apologized for the error. Still, very disappointed with the overall experience given all the other times that we have been to Paco's and had wonderful experiences. I will just assume it was an off-day and will return again. :(
I love R&P. It is consistently wonderful. Excellent food, excellent bar, excellent service, excellent ambiance. The only not positive thing I can say is that it is not easy to get reservations for the time you want (but that tells you something about the high quality of this restaurant).
Rudy & Paco's never disappoints. Very cool atmosphere and food is always fresh and delicious. By far, our favorite place on the island. Paco's presence is always a treat! Service is top notch! If you are in the area and looking for a wonderful experience, don't miss!!
One of our favorite restaurants in Galveston. We go as often as we can and especially when we have tickets to a show at the Grand 1894 Opera House next door.
This is a very high quality restaurant with the Owner being there to look over the food and service. Try it and you will love it.
We went out to dinner for my birthday. They immediately told our waiter, who wished me happy birthday as soon as he greeted us. The staff were so well organized and our plates were never left long. Whatever you do, make sure you try the calamari and Paco even came to our table to sing. Well worth the cost!
Food was very good but definitely overpriced. Tables are very close together. Too dark to see the menus. Service was good. Given the Number of restaurants I would certainly not make it a high priority. Black Pearl was excellent and a good value. Just as good of food
Paco has been present both times we have dined at Rudy & Paco's, and he is very friendly, approachable and inviting, with great sense of humor! His establishment's food quality and exceptionally well-orchestrated 5-star service makes our visit to Galveston complete!! He has done a fabulous job of keeping the quality over the years, as the last time we were there was over 6 years ago!! Well done, Paco!!
