Went back to Stellas for the view and the convenient (for us) location. Huge improvement in service. Food was fine--we liked the salads and a filet. We will go back.

This is a lovely restaurant/bar right on the beach, even tables in the sand if you wish! Unfortunately, the service was terrible, from the waiter who didn't speak English and got our drinks wrong, (and never came back to check on us without being waved at or walked over to), to the food, which was pretty to look at, but...

The receptionist at our hotel recommended this place for salsa dancing and it was spot-on. Unfortunately, on Thursday nights, there is only a class and a little social dancing afterwards. It was all over by 11pm. So we returned the next night, as Fridays and Saturdays feature a very good live band that plays salsa, cumbia, bachata, and a little... More

Stella's is right on the beach, so it's a great place to people watch and get a feel for La Paz and the malecon. The service was good, the food was great, and there was live music setting up just as we left - looked like a lot of fun!

We stopped for an early dinner and enjoyed the setting on the patio, at the south end of the beach on the La Paz malecon (sea wall). Even the tables were lovely and seats were comfortable. Some of the menu items are pricey, overy 300 pesos a plate, but many are less expensive. We shared a kilo of white clams... More

Stella's is right at the end of the Malecon with a fantastic view from the patio. I've only had their pizzas so far. And, if you love thin crust pizza, you need look no further for the best in La Paz. The rest of the dishes I've admired being served look authentic and very delicious. I could tell from other...

The food at Stella's was good. I had a fruit and lettuce salad with some cheese which was great. I prefer US cheese, but am getting used to Mexican cheese which is quite different. The service was good. A bit on the expensive side by Mexican standards, but still a good buy at US prices. Dinners and 1 drink each... More

The food was absolutely delicious and they gave us really good portions. We love eating on the bay and there's usually live entertainment on the weekends with soothing music during the week. We really like it and we have returned many times and will continue.
