ALFRESCO dining and a good working relationship with your neighbours are key to success, according to Pacinos' co-owner Guy Pilcher.

Since relocating Pacinos Restaurant to the ground floor of Rockhampton's newest apartment building, the Empire Apartment Hotel, late last year, Mr Pilcher said trade had quadrupled.

"We have been doing really, really well since moving here," he said.

"People are just loving the alfresco dining experience and being on the waterfront here.

"Compared to our old restaurant in George St, we are doing a month worth of trade in a week here.

"The three of us - Pacinos, The Coffee Club and Ribs and Rumps - are busy every night. We have a good combination here."
