My wife and I went there by accident, and we were pleasantly surprised. The plantain was unique and the salsa served with it was great. We had seafood and it was fresh and the meal was served hot. Service was very attentive and a special feature is that when food is served, multiple waiters come out and present the food simultaneously at the table. 2 people or 8 - doesnt matter. Same when the table was cleared. Nice touch and the expresso martini was so good, we had another. Best overall dining experience we've had on the Island.

After being so highly recommended we tried it for a special occasion. The service was more than horrible and the food wasn't much better. Took us 20 minutes to get our first drink and it was all down hill after that. The food was nothing more than average if that. Paco came by our table and made a smart remark and that was very disappointing. Would I ever recommend them to anyone...NO

Average food and inattentive service, although there are some flavorful items on the menu, they are over priced. I recently had dinner and our large party split the check. Much to my dismay when my bank transaction went through, our waiter had added an additional $7 gratuity to a credit card transaction that I had already authorized. When I called the restaurant to speak with a manager he told me someone would call me back the next day and that it "must be a mistake". 4 days later, no return phone call. I will not return and advise you to be careful and save your credit card receipts.

Rudy and Pacos is located in downtown Galveston. It is a very small restaurant that you often need reservations for. One of the owners (Paco, I believe) is always there greeting everyone and walking around the tables making sure everything is satisfactory. This restaurant has a wonderful ambiance-it has low lighting and candles on the table (it's a great date place). They serve amazing fried plantain bananas with a special salsa instead of the average basket of bread. Also, this restaurant has a dress code, so if you show up in cut off shorts and a ragged t-shirt, be prepared to be turned away.

Highly recomended for outstanding service, exceptional food and a great time. Owner and operator makes everyone feel like a long tie friend when he is on the floor. The chef's specials are sublime. The Tuna w/ Japapeno Cream sauce is incredible.

We stopped in unannounced on a night when there was a show at the opera house. We were seated before we finished one cocktail. The services was outstanding... better than many of the VERY expensive restaurants in Houston. The food was better than I've had at such "recommended" restaurants as Aries. When you're in Galveston, this is one place you don't want to miss.
