This restaurant has only been open about 6 weeks, and the tourist season does not begin for another few weeks, so it still has time to work out the kinks.
I did not eat here, as I was in town on my own, but stopped in to see it and asked my hosts at the B&B where I stayed. They said they have eaten here, but it is expensive and the service needs to improve; I think they said the waiters hovered too much!
Wood-fired pizza, Mezquite Grill, USDA Prime Aged Beef, Sushi
Air-Conditioned, with an extensive international wine list, free Valet Parking, private groups accommodated.
Without a doubt, the best restaurant in town, and one that would seriously challenge some of the best and far more expensive restaurants in los Cabos. The food is imaginative, well made, and delicious. The restaurant has a great Baja-Mediterranean style courtyard, open kitchen, and a very nice and well stocked wine cellar. Our waiter told us the food is Bajamed, a new concept that comes from the northern part of the Baja that we have never heard of, but all i can say its that you must try it, all of us locals are crazy about this new place. This restaurant is so special because it has Baja written all over it. You wont find pink chairs, moles, or mariachi music here, what you experience is basic Baja ambiance with food from the region prepared in very innovative ways.
Favorite Dish: Try the Roasted Lamb Burritos, they are to die for.
Hidden behind the La Perla Department Store, a block from the Malecon, is a street stand of the Brothers Gonzales. This looks unassuming, but is pretty world-famous for its fish tacos. Not just fish, but squid, octupus, and numerous varieties of fish. You drink agua fresca out of giant mason jars, a sort of kool-aid with real fruits. Top it with salsas of styles I have never seen before, and you have an extremely cheap meal fit for royalty.
Favorite Dish: For me, it's the "pulpo" taco, translated - octopus. Most octo I've had is chewy, but this stuff is deep-fried to perfection with only the mildest hint of chew. Mild, flavorful, and topped with this dark salsa which must be made of tomatoes and mother's milk. Ambrosia!
Located across from the malecon - the various seafood and tacos are very good quality. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Never thought I would eat seafood tacos for breakfast - but they were a great way to start the day.
Favorite Dish: The oysters were briney and fresh but the real treat were the various seafood tacos. Smoked marlin (20 pesos), langosta (50 pesos), oysters in chipotle (30 pesos), scallops (30 pesos), cameron (15 pesos), pescado (10 pesos). There are various salsa slaws and toppings to add - you can easily make a meal out of two.
This is a very unique, comfortable, open restaurant fronting right on the bay at La Paz on the northern end of town as you would drive north up the peninsula.
Owned and managed by an American woman who has had the same staff for eons and provides a wonderful meal every time we stop (over the past 15 years).
You can see by the photos that in addition to regular table set-ups, there are over-stuffed sofas and lounge chairs which are particularly nice for just having a drink and appetizers or light lunch. Unfortunately, I neglected to take a photo of the bayside, whch has a pool also, but as we were there for lunch, the sunlight prohibited a good pic.
Pam is usually attending and has built up quite a clientele amongst the ex-pats in the area, in addition to the local population. Adjacent, she also has several rooms for rent!
Live music Wednesdays & Saturdays from 6:30 pm until 10:30 pm. Sunday champagne brunch from 10 am until 1 pm. Closed Mondays.
Favorite Dish: Everythings we have ever had is good; of course fresh guacamole and chips, local fish and seafood, and if you need a fix of American style food, there are wonderful 'Club Sandwiches'!
Super Tacos has moved two blocks from it's original location. They serve all the standard seafood tacos and in various ways but the real treat is their salsas - about 15 types. I prefered Bismark Cito's preparation more but you can't go to La Paz and not eat here at least once.
The Palapa Adriana is one of the few restaurants set on the malecon. That's right, at bayside!
I'll go so far as to say they may have served me the best breakfast I ever had. While others excersized outside I sat down to a feast in an empty restaurant. I opened the window and let the sea breeze wash away my fatigue and stress.
I partially credit this particular breakfast with turning my trip into Baja around. The night before I was heavily burnt out and in need of refreshing after so many hours driving and several hours trying to find the right hotel in La Paz. I considered turning around and going back to the border. The many miles ahead to continue my trip overwhelmed me. Then, after a good nights sleep at the Nuevo Pekin Hotel, I walked the malecon and discovered the restaurant. Decidely after breakfast the trip was back on.
We ate at Chilly Willy's in Loreto, which was OK. This place is on the water on the north side of town.
Favorite Dish: I got the sweet & sour chicken fajita, which was quite tasty.
The food was good, but the margarita's needed some help. A shot of tequilla on the side helped to fix that problem.
We liked the nice atmosphere, the food and the beautiful wall painting in this restaurant. We had breakfast there one day and dinner another day. The prices are pretty darn reasonable, too. I don't remember the address but it's not far from the main square where the church and civic buildings are (not even 5 mins down the street, just ask the locals for direction).
This attractive restaurant has a prime location on the north side of La Paz' seaside malecon in the Plaza Coral. There is uncovered patio dining, covered patio dining, and inside dining. The wait staff was friendly and courteous, and most of the clientele seemed to be locals - you can always usually tell a good restaurant if the locals flock there.
Our meals were very good. The relatively inexpensive menu was varied and had a lot of exciting selections. The desserts were excellent! And the menu had the best selection of coffee drinks I have seen anywhere in the world!
This restaurant has a perfect location at the end of the Malecon. You can enjoy a beautiful sunset from there. It represents a slight attempt to offer something different from the typical Mexican cuisine but somehow it did not convince me enough. Waiters are extremely friendly for my tastes (to aimed to get a big tip I think).
Enjoy the fresh air on the restaurant at the street level of the Hotel Perla. AMAZING sunset and if you time it right (I went on May) the sun sets almost right in front of you, behind the "malecon" and the calm water of the bay.
Favorite Dish: I had a great fried fish with fresh vegetable salad.
This is one of the best restaurant in town. Very nice ambience, excellent service and high Mexican cuisine. If you are tired of tacos, it could be a nice (but expensive) alternative. Wines' list is also very wide.
Directly on the Malecon has a very nice ambience with a view on sea sunset, the food was not bad but nothing special and nothing to compare to Bismark-cito, in the same price range. I remember a very nice waitress.
Bismark Cito on the La Paz waterfront. I don't know why they named a seafood restaurant after a German battleship, but this was the MUST visit place for years in La Paz and owners are absolutely Mexican. Lobster potatoes; paella; seafood soup; imperial shrimp wrapped in bacon and cheese as well as stuffed clams are just some of the menu favorites. It was born as tacos stand (and it is still) but now offers much more. Full of locals as well.
