Great food. Great cocktails. Good value for money. Degustation menu allows you to try a few different meals in the one seating.

We both had the 5 course seafood degustation dinner with matched wines and it was one of the best dinners we've had in ages. The food was spectacular, different textures and tastes.. and the wine matched expertly. We'd highly recommend Pacifica and will definitely be back next time we're in town! Service was also great and the atmosphere lovely! Thanks... More

Wonderful restaurant that only offers degustation. We ordered one of each to mix, match and compare with associated wine matches. Certainly didn't disappoint with great combinations. Extremely well priced and very attentive service.

Wonderful food in a very casual atmosphere. Not a lot of choices, but we went with the seafood tasting menu and it was great! I have a nut allergy, so we mentioned that and no problem. We'd definitely go there again!

Our cab driver recommended Pacifica, and we're so glad she did! Not normally 'degustation' types, we decided to mix it up and try something new. With your choice of seafood or mixed (seafood & meat), you get 5 perfect courses for $50. You can also add a beautiful wine pairing. The service is also spot on. Can't wait to come... More

Arrived in Napier and looked around for a restaurant for dinner. Walked passed Pacifica and decided to give it a try. The 5 course seafood degustation menu was superb. Beautifully prepared dishes with intense flavours. The menu was creative and interesting.

We loved this restaurant. The decor was a not great however you don't eat that! The food was really well prepared in a sophisticated way. The service was good although the two waitresses were kept busy with a full restaurant. We would go again for the food quality and recommend the restaurant especially if you are not too fussy about... More
