We ended up here because we didn't know where to go for breakfast. The menu is not that big, we had chilaquiles and Scrambled Eggs. Taste wise, the food was really good. The only thing is that it seemed they had only 1 cook for everybody, so it took a while to get our food, but once it came to... More

The place was right next to our hotel and we didn't see anything that was better in the price range. Martin was very persuasive and he delivered. Food was well prepared and very tasty. Everyone enjoyed their dishes. However when it came time to pay we were informed that the credit machine was down. We had to scrape all our... More

Catrinas is by far thee best Mexican meals you'll find in La Paz and can hold its' own anywhere. High quality ingredients and a great kitchen crew makes for fine dining at reasonable prices. Matched with good service, a great location a couple of doors from the Bay and the Callejon de La Paz (called Restaurant Plaza on Google Earth)... More

We have had the pleasure to eat at Catrinas in La Paz. The service provided by Martin has been spectacular. He attends to any need any of the guests have. The food has been stellar I highly recommend the"mochahetes" it is one of their specialties. Anyone is welcomed like an old time customer.

No one likes being badgered a la TJ or Cabo when they walk down the street in Mexico, and you don't really expect it in La Paz, but our waiter here, Luis, was fairly forceful in suggesting this place to us. Since we intended to eat anyway, we gave it a shot and it turned out to be a good... More

Martin and Louis were manager and waiter for our lunch on Sunday. We were being pressured to eat at the restaurants beyond this first restaurant, which we fortunately resisted. We received the most personal service and delicious and freshest yellowtail, veggies, tortillas, bean dip... which is their specialty. The fish was extremely fresh!

We are a Mexican food Restaurant with inside and outdoor sitting. Enjoy our great specialty's, Mojitos and Margaritas. Don't be scared of our host "The Catrina" she's been here since Cristobal Colon discovered America and came down to Baja California Sur leaving her on the beach while she was collecting some shells.
