Since 1998 we've spent about two weeks in the Mayan Riviera (Quintana Roo) so we are quite familiar with Mexican food. Right now we are spending three months in Thalwil, SZA with our daughter and her family. We been back and... More

We really enjoyed our dinner in the Restaurant Pacifico. The food was amazing and the cocktails as well. The service was extremely friendly. Especially the lady Petra which placed us on a nice table was adorable. When she passed by she was always smiling and asked if everything is good. We would definitely go again and having dinner at the... More

I was staying in the Astoria hotel and this is one of their restaurants. The restaurant is very nice. The food menu very good. I couldn't decide and the fabulous waiter Filipe made an excellent recommendation to have the fajitas. I was supposed to eat at the bar since the restaurant was full but Filipe saw a that people were... More

This was my third visit to Pacifico and as ever the food was pretty good. The main dish that was had (enchiladas) were very tasty but the tortilla wraps were stuck (burnt) to the iron pan (serving dish). Slightly disappointing. Quite expensive as well at CH36. We shared this dish and also a starter which was CH18. My wife had... More

If you're tired of overpriced fondues and raclettes, this place offers good TexMex fare at prices that are very reasonable by Swiss standards. It's a large, lively lounge with very friendly service and good food - the spare ribs were the best I've ever eaten. Definitely recommended.

If you haven't yet arrived in Switzerland be warned everything is expensive especially food. In comparison to otger restaurants the quality, quantity accompanied by great service were of very good value. The fajitas were delicious. Cocktails were typical of Australian prices so I would so very good value.
