Went to Pakalolo for dinner with my parents and fiancée. Ordered cocktails, fiancée got a margarita that was full of stubby hairs. Coupled with some mediocre-at-best Dorito-based nachos, this made for a reasonably bad night out.

Used a lot by people wanting free wi-fi who hog tables inside. Outside even in the non-smoking area you get the smell anyway. Food was good without being special. Staff attentive but all in all pretty unimpressive
