Great location right on the malacon, there are 3 floors, the top two you can get amazing sunset views. The service is very good and all the waiters seem to know good English. We came here to watch the Canadian junior finals but they tried but we couldnt get the game! Another night American football was on and the place... More

This isn't fine dining, but that's not what you come for - the service was fast and friendly, the ambience was lively, the food was totally good - we went in for a quick snack and a beer and sat outside on the sidewalk and enjoyed ourselves immensely one day. Another day we came in for dinner with our son... More

Great joint on the water front in La Paz. We drove up from Cabo for the day to check things out and were pleasantly surprised to be able to catch our game on the water front of a beautiful crystal clear bay that looks like a post card. We had a few beers and some fish and chips. The service... More

Just had tortillas and guacamole and drinks. Great service and good. Cool atmosphere with rooftop patio overlooking the Malecon. We enjoyed it. They also had the fight on the tv for entertainment.

We had dinner here looking over the malecon. The fish tacos, and shrimp dinners were great. We couldn't sit on the 3rd level, but the 2nd level was great.
