I would definitely recommend this Restuarant for friends and couples. Every mouthful was a taste sensation. The service was impeccable and I loved that there were 2 options of menu for the non-seafood lovers. I hope to return one day. Thanks for a very memorable evening.

Called them earlier to book a table for 5. The person who answered wasn't friendly, citing she was busy. However parking was easy and the restaurant ambience was great. 5 course dinner was delicious. Kudos to the waitress who was very detailed in explaining each dish. Highly recommend this restaurant to all visitors to Napier.

We had the 5 course degustation. There is an option of all seafood or seafood and meat courses. They coped with gluten free without difficulty. The food was excellent and good value for the quality. We did not have the wine match, but there was a good wine selection from which we chose a bottle to share that we enjoyed.... More

Within New Zealand culinary circles a well-known, unpretentious gem. Small and quiet with simple but tasteful decor, the dedicated fish restaurant has superb food and is reasonably priced. True, the portions are small but with 5 courses we were well satisfied. Excellent wine list too.

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.

Jeremy selects top produce, he has has a skill of mixing and blending that is different. The restaurant has available a wine for each course (one glass) available for a fixed price.

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!
