Dining in La Paz

fish-taco in la pazDining in La Paz Mexico is a treat. Although the restaurants on the waterfront tend to offer more ambiance, the ones in town should not be overlooked!  And lets not forget that you can prepare your own feast in your own kitchen at Casa República.


La Perla is classic ‘old’ La Paz. This restauarant has been a local institution for decades. Lovely patio dining facing the harbor and the Malecon. Popular Mexican cuisine, hamburgers, sandwhiches and seafood. Go easy on the giant and potent margaritas! Right smack in the the middle of it all, can’t miss it.

Bismarkcito is across from the Malecon on Abasolo Fish tacos, chiles rellenos, smoked marlin tacos, seafood soup, paella

Playa Pichilingue is at 18 Carretera at Pichilingue 612-122-4565

(Just a few clicks past the Ferry Terminal and before Balandra Beach)

Fresh seafood under a huge palapa on the beach doesn’t get much better. This restaurant has its own clam farm so you know the chocolate clams are the freshest around. Do not pass up the almejas rellenos (stuffed clams)!

Home Cooking

Dining in La Paz is truly a treat, but if you’re staying for more than just a few days its great to do some of your own cooking also.  Love seafood and want adventure? Buy fish at the fish market on Nicholas Bravo. It is the freshest in town. Prepare it any way you desire at your fully equipped kitchen at your Casa República unit.

There are several grocery stores in town to help you complete the meal. Aramburo, Ley, Chedraui and Soriana. Also, don’t miss the roasted chickens at Chedraui. Each unit at Casa República has adequate kitchen utensils to prepare breakfast, lunch or dinner. Delicious homemade breads and desserts can be found at Panaderia Pan DLes on Madero between Ocampo and Degollado.

Buen Provecho!

    Not sure why your comment is on our website – Grill fish is not a place that was reviewed – never heard of it in La Paz Mexico. Please let us know where this restaurant is. Did you stay in La Paz? If so, let us know what places you enjoyed eating at. We are always open to suggestions…
