Cafe Pacifico | An Authentic Mexican Cantina Experience

There’s an old Mexican proverb that goes a little like this,

“Cuando el río suena es que agua lleva”

Nice accent, Ese.

It means that if the river’s making a noise, there’s water in it.

Or, less literally, “if you hear rumours, there’s probably some truth to them…”.

Well there’s been a constantly-running stream of rumours about Cafe Pacifico for a long time, and all pretty much all good, since it opened its doors in Covent Garden almost 30 years ago.

Arguably less famous than its next door neighbours on Langley Street, Pineapple Dance Studios and the original Hawksmoor, Cafe Pacifico remains one of London’s most authentic Mexican Cantina experiences (albeit a fairly kitsch one) and a bona fide London classic.

Do a couple of shots of Tequila; enjoy a few Margaritas and then tuck into some, quesadillas, enchilladas, fajitas and Burritos (or one of many other menu items ending in -os or -as).

Just don’t take it too seriously….



NOTE: Cafe Pacifico is open daily from noon till late. You can find out more HERE.
