Who would have thought cactus salad would be palatable! The closest thing I can compare it to is long, thin green beans ... it's tossed with some tomato and olives; and with a few corn chips tossed in for crunch, it's a great combo -...More

Like all of the best restaurants, the entrance to this place looks dodgy... up a narrow flight of stairs to s solid door that doesnt look inviting at all... but from that, we knew it would be great!!! This place is like a night club......More

The drinks and atmosphere are excellent and the food is hearty and very filling - you do not leave the place hungry. Their orange and ginger Margaritas are fantastic. I would recommend this to everyone! We are regulars at Cafe Pacifico...

Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney,
Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other
suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and
1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret

Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues
feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning.
