My friend and I spent a week in La Paz. Tried a few other restaurants, but none matched either the quality of the food or the service at the Tailhunter. Especially recommend the fresh fish of the day. They were happy to prepare fish we caught as well.

When my partner and I sat down they said they had no English menu and seemed annoyed by us. After eating we both got sick. Hope it wasn't homophobia and poisoning. Cannot at at all recommend.

The absolute best way to end a great day fishing. Is to have the tailhunter restaurant transform your catch of the day to a great meal!

We ate at Tailhunter Restaurant for 6 days straight in October. We tried something new each day, and it was all wonderful. The price was great, my only suggestion was putting English on the menu, which they said was coming up on their next revision. Staff was friendly and quick to greet you and make you feel like family!

Nice fresh fish and shrimp tacos, guacamole and a cold beer and juice. The place is located directly at the malecon and offers very decent and kind service and good food. The place itself is a mist see and has nice ambience.

This place has a lot of good review and maybe that's why the expectations was set high, maybe to high. We started off with empanadas which was very good and yellow tail sashimi, I prefer the sashimi to be served very cold not room temperature which this was. After I had a cheese French fries which was ok and hamburger... More

Chips were stale, no flavor and overall, both food and service were poor. Meats were not a good quality and my husband got sick after eating here. (Not sure if it was because of the food here, but considering the quality and taste, I would not be surprised)

Me and my family booked a trip with tailhunter and ate at his restaurant almost for every meal! We went to a couple other places around town but in all honesty..... the tailhunter restaurant was simply the best out of all of them.
