Restaurants in La Paz


Hi all, newbie to bajanomad here.

Does anyone have any feedback about Tailhunter, La Morante or Doce Quarento?

I normally eat street food only in Mexico as I’m often alone and/or wiped pit from the day but this trip I want to eat at some restaurants,

Any feedback or restaurant suggestions are very welcome!

Thank you and cheers!

Thank you Alan!

My quest this trip is to run into another gringo, for once when I am there, to get advice and knowledge on living in La Paz.

Is this Alan from the Espiritu boat trip?

I don't think so unless it was on my boat.

When are you going to La Paz? I'm headed down for a few days 5/13-18

Feel free to U2U me with any questions

Last time I was down I did the Espiritu boat snorkeling day trip and an Alan was our guide. American/Mexican man prob around 30ish, give or take many years,
I’m not going until the end of May, very end..May 29.

I normally am fine with doing my trip alone l but I was thinking it would be nice to talk to people that moved there by choice this time.

I don’t know what U2U is? Is it a messaging app or is it another way to say dm?

Tres Virgenes is a high end place, excellent food, owned by a Baja Nomad (JESSE) who was a chef in Tijuana previously. Mexican government people such as the governor probably the top clients? Best ribeye in the world! Splurge once here for a treat.

Ohhh nice! I forgot every word you said before and after rib eye, lol Haven't had a good rib eye in forever,
Was this chef written up in an essay in the New Yorker? I recall reading a story about TJ cuisine a bit ago and being a bit baffled as my TJ memories are driving to TJ or Rosarita(o) in high school and buying everclear and 151, barf

Tailhunter has a cool view but marginal bar food at best. I would stay with the First list and add Mi Casita and Maria California and my wife‘s fav for a time is Estancia Uruguaya.

TailHunter is so, so. Typical restaurant/bar on the malecon. They do have IPAs. TVs are old.

The best sushi in Baja is out near Costa Baja - Odayaka. Steinbecks restaurant at Costa Baja is pretty good as well.

Il Rustico is very good Italian. Haven't been to Tres Virgenes, but will definitely give it a try next time down.

We also like Maria California. I think it was mentioned in the other thread about restaurants, too. Just a block up from the malecon on the corner of B. Dominguez and Jaurez. They only do breakfast and lunch and close at 2PM, so don't count on it for dinner.

Dulce Romero - on Allende 3 blocks up from the Malecon has a great bakery and small restaurant.

You asked about Doce Cuarenta - it's a coffee shop with basic menu of things like muffins, quiche, etc.

There is also the Bagel Shop if you have a craving for a bagel - they do a good breakfast too.

Thread is really good. We go to La Paz a lot and I haven't been to many of these places. Will hit the Bagel Shop for sure.

What's the most reliable place to get IPAs? The large grocery is hit or miss. They have them in the little store near the Costa Baja marina, but are jacking the prices way up. Anywhere else?

Thank you charliemanson, I will add to my list. I’ve never had Uruguayan food.

Thank you JZ, I love sushi and will add the other restaurants as well.

Thank you bajalinda. I have been to the bagel shop before and it is good.
I love Dulce Romero, I always get a bag of pan dulce there to eat in the airplane. I will add your other suggestions as well.

Sortis on Revolution just past the cathedral currently has the best Sunday brunch in town complete with eggs or omelettes to order as well as a carving station.

Stopped here recently for breakfast. Food was good, latte greeat. Felt upscale from what I'm use to in Pesky. Lots of young, professional looking MXs. Place is popular.
