Fantastic food, with a cozy, local vibe. Just like heading into your favorite corner tapas joint in Barcelona. Friendly staff, good TVs, great bartender and delicious food ... online menu is only half the show as there is also a healthy list of daily tapas options. Generous portions on the tapas too. Highly recommend.

Casa d’Paco is one the best - if not the best restaurant in Newark. Not only is the food consistently excellent, but also the staff are happy and proud of the work they do. It must be a great place to work because the spirit of the place is warm and inviting, like you are at a good friend’s home for the best night ever. I LOVE Casa d’ Paco. It just makes me happy every time!

We sat there for hours because waiters never came back to check in, initial drink order wait time was over 20 minutes. Our bill had items not ordered by us. Clearly they are not organized or have a strong floor manager. The overall experience was lack Luster. Even during checkout the waiter was clueless on how to charge and gave me 2 bills for 1 credit card payment. Bizarre dining experience

Of course they never disappoint. Food and flavorful and excellent you end up wanting more! Their flan dessert is excellent better than my mom’s homemade one. Service is on point and so friendly! You feel like home here. I highly highly recommend this place!

Brilliant find. Had a few hours to kill before taking off. A 10 minute ride found us at Casa de Paco. The servers were friendly. The octopus was some of the best I have had (including comparing it to Michelin star restaurants). From the drinks to the amazing food to the wonderful servers I could literally move to that neighborhood and eat there everyday!

Reservation was smooth. Place is okay.
Food served was okay, not great. Seafood in paella was over cooked. Tasted like reheated.
Overpriced.

Food was phenomenal as always. First time back post-pandemic. I did not know they converted the parking lot to outside dining. I had only eaten in the main part of the restaurant prior to COVID. We sat inside the new part- a little bit stuffy, but bearable. I love the intimacy of the original restaurant, it’s a different vibe in this larger setting. Still a great place, great food, friendly and accommodating staff and customers.

Awful experience tonight! We had a reservation for 9:30. When we arrived we were told the kitchen was closing in 15 minutes (So We had no choice but to order our food quickly. )Two dishes came out before our drinks and about half hour later the rest of our food still had not arrived. We asked the waiter where our food was and he came to tell us he forgot to put in the rest of the order. Since the kitchen was closed already we were out of luck. We left hungry and frustrated because it was supposed to be an enjoyable date night. The complimentary dessert didn’t help. Needless to say we won’t be returning.

Dined with my 23 yo daughter we ordered tapas... Chorizo, Pulpo and empanadas and Estrella draft beer. For the two of us that set us back ~$65 including tip.
The quality of food was good and the beer was fresh and ice cold. It was a hot day so that was a good thing. The waiters looked too casual to me, ours had wore a baseball cap, turned backwards.
I thought the food was good tho the Chorizo tapas was only one smaller sausage to share between the two of us.
The Pulpo was excellent, tender and seasoned as one would expect from a Spanish restaurant. The empanadas are of the mini variety and to me not one of the best options, too small and not enough meat.
The ambience at 4 PM on a Sunday afternoon featured booming house music (I'm a big househead!) but much too loud for 4 PM and conversation. The restaurant offers valet parking which is a good thing because the restaurant is on a residential street and finding a place to park can be a challenge.
I look forward to visiting again and trying other menu options
