Review of Pacific Bistro - CLOSED

The view is amazing, beer is good but don’t go near the food. We visited during Easter weekend, made a reservation for 10 people a few hours before going to the pub. Yes it was a last minute reservation but they accepted it without hesitation and took my details. When we showed up there was no table for us and the staff did make much of an effort to rectify the situation. As people left, we gathered tables and chairs and assembled a table by ourselves. I ordered American style ribs, not sure what I got but I wouldn’t call it ribs (see photo - rib bone stumps doesn’t make it ribs!). The sauce on the ribs wasn’t very nice but the salad was good as was the small amount of chips. The rest of meals ranged from ok to pretty average, no one in the group was keen to eat there again during the holiday.

The "Iconic Fish and Chips" was revolting! It was black, oily and tasted like mud (i think mud would have tasted better!), the salad was an undressed mount of vegetation with what looked like tofu on top! Childrens chicken nuggets tasted like dirty rubbery fish. When asked what sort of Iconic fish it is the reply was simply "mullet".......need i say anymore?

Had lunch there - burger was ordinary - bun was stale. Partner's fish and chips was also disappointing. Both came with an undressed salad . For the price, this was a big let down !!! Taking advantaged of the amazing view - without this repeat business would not occur
