Best restaurant on the Island. Unbelievable food and service. Paco is the ultimate host!
Edwin is awesome! Great dinner!
Always love going here! I’ve never had anything I didn’t like! Yum!!
Great food, friendly atmosphere. A bit too much of red snapper on the menu :)
One of our all time favorites! We love to come whenever we are in town!
Date night trying to avoid the Valentine's Day rush the next week, we chose an early sitting at Rudy and Paco. The food was excellent(a couple of snapper dishes), as was the crab cake appetizer. Service was excellent, similar to Commander's Palace in New Orleans. Only two notes, no wine by the glass, and the desert, a chocolate cake did not live up to the excellence of the rest of the meal. Everything else was excellent and we look forward to our next meal there.
Hands down, the best service and best food EVERY time. This is our favorite place to celebrate for lunch or dinner - HIGHLY recommend!
Excellent lunch specials!
Great food, great service (from Juan) and great ambiance.
Several different meals, two of the specials. All were excellent, especially the two Red Fish dishes. Rebecca was the server and she was terrific, very knowledgeable about the entrees and provided attentive but not overbearing service. She kept the water and iced tea full without our asking. First time experience, but will try to go back again--we live north of Houston, so it's a fairly long drive.
Paco was a very gracious host! Loved the ambiance, location, service, food and the Pear Martini was awesome. Will definitely return soon!!
Outstanding service, delicious food and wonderful ambiance. We always go to Ridy and Pacos when in Galvestion. It should be on everyone's top 10 list of restaurants!
Outstanding Service and the food with excellent! We will be back!
Our dinner was excellent. Our waitress, Katy, was very attentive and very sweet
Loved the evening. Will be back.
It was a wonderful birthday celebration! Thank you.
Staff are skillfully trained and are on point at all times. The food was good, however was expecting more with the flavor. I had the crab cake and it was full of crab, but sauce left some to the imagination. Husband got a chicken dish, and he was pleased. Drinks were very tasty. Ambiance was wonderful. Small, romantic, dinner lighting. Owner greeted us personally. This is one of those special places to celebrate birthday's and anniversary's.
We went for lunch. The portions were huge. Great value for an upscale lunch.
The food is good. The service is excellent. Paco is very good at interacting with customers. We consider this restaurant a special place and would highly recommend to others.
Paco's never fails to deliver in every way, beginning with Paco himself greeting everyone at the door with a "welcome home". Food is always exceptional.
This was our first time and certainly not our last. The food was delicious and service was top notch. Love loved our dining experience. What a special 31st anniversary. The anniversary dessert was yummy. Blessed by your team.
With thanks, The Fabling's
Great food, great service. We will definitely be back!
Rudy and Paco is the one restaurant that we visit every time we’re on Galveston Island. It always meets our expectations!
Favorite restaurant in Galveston
Very nice ambiance, very friendly wait staff, food was good and Paco came over to say hello and to see if everything was good. Great place to celebrate a special occasion or just a “ date night”.
This was our second time to dine here. We had an excellent experience both times. We will definitely be back. Our favorite date spot.
The service was terrific.
The Best place in Galveston. But can’t wait to try restaurant across street owned by Paco’s family
Was one of best meals we have had ever. The food was absolutely hands down 5 star! Perfect for our date night. The service was impeccable. Everything came out wonderfully! We will definitely make this a must do on our list of activities in Galveston! Very cozy atmosphere!
We went for a birthday dinner and enjoyed a wide variety of items, both on-menu and specials. Each item was beautifully prepared and delicious. Service is amazing. Each person at the table was served at exactly the same time. Our waiter was well versed in the specials, including the daily wine special (great deals on specific bottles each day.) Great options for dessert and dessert drinks, with some specialty drinks not to be found elsewhere.
Service is exceptional and food is delicious! Our second visit - the best of the best!
Everything was exceptional. Our favorite place to dine in Galveston.
Excellent food, excellent service. Always enjoy our time here.
Always a good evening. Service is at a level not seen in many restaurants today. Paco is so charming with his table visits.
Best restaurant we’ve been to this year. The service is remarkable, the people who served us Angela, Marisa and Reese made us both feel extra special, they are the reason this is a five star restaurant.
The food was definitely gourmet, and the wine list had everything we could possibly ever went.
When we come to Galveston we will alway come here!!!
The owner takes special pride in everyone being served at the same time. It’s amazing to watch and when several people have martinis they come at the same time with the servers shaking them in a parade that made us laugh, SPECIAL PLACE!!!
Always superb service and the food is absolutely amazing!
A delicious feast served with impeccable simultaneous service and surrounded by festive patrons of this unique dining experience!
Restaurant has well deserved top service rating. Food was exceptional. Atmosphere was perfect for an anniversary dinner. Would highly recommend for a date night with the wife.
Best Restaurant on the Island!
Amazing from start to finish...as usual! Never disappoints!
