Rudy & Paco Restaurant & Bar
Rudy & Paco’s is a standout among the many seafood restaurants in Galveston Island’s historic district because of its authentic Latin American flare. As long as you’re not wearing shorts, this upscale corner restaurant will serve you options like Salmon a la Parrilla (grilled salmon over a mango habanero sauce), Filete de Pargo Simpatico (plantain crusted red snapper topped with crab and served over raspberry chipotle sauce), Carmones Diablos (gulf shrimp linguine served in a spicy marinara), and a 16 ounce prime rib-eye steak … it’s still Texas after all. Finish off your meal with a bang like Cuatro Leches cake or a dessert cocktail like Paco Espresso Martini. Pro tip: after dinner, plan to catch a show at the opera house next door.
