Had the shrimp tacos and marlin empanada. Super delicious!!! Lemonade was also fresh. Price was reasonable as well. Make sure you have pesos as the exchange rate is horrible.

The restaurant has ocean view, great location. However the dining experience was a negative. My husband and I shared an order of stuffed fish which was stuffed with shrimp, vegetables, cheese and of course fish. The meal was hot around the edges but cold in the center. The fish was raw in the center, the shrimp cold and the cheese... More

BIsmarck is a La Paz icon and the place on the Malecon is beautiful. The food was just o.k. and it's spendy for La Paz.

El Bismarksito is right on the waterfront, meaning a beautiful view. It's know for lobster and the lobster was outstanding. They're large: we shared one between two people, but someone with a bigger appetite might want a whole one. They're not the Maine lobsters--no claws. This is the place all the Mexican bigwigs go when they come to town. The... More

I came here on the recommendation of a friend... I am not a fish fan but this restaurant opened my palate a bit. The shrimp taco is excellent. Then I tried the marlin taco (based on my waiter's recommendation). That was off-the-hook good. The topping selections weren't impressive compared to many taquerias I have frequented but I was impressed with... More

Unlike many restaurants in MX, the Chile was mild, not picante. This allowed the fresh shrimp, mild cheese and delicate breading to complement one another instead of being blown away. During the week this has more business lunches going on than evenings or weekends when couples and families predominate. The setting is great with a choice of a view of... More

I have no idea where this place got its name. We stopped in here around 8:00 on a Sunday evening. We sat at a sidewalk table where we could watch the interesting traffic passing. The chips and salsa were really good. I had marlin tacos, four tacos, plenty of fish, very tasty. My wife had fish Veracruzano, plenty of olives,... More

Bismarkcito is basically a large family restaurant focused on seafood. It is successful at what it does and is usually busy. You are not likely to be the only ones eating there. The menu is large and varied. Some dishes are really tasty, others mediocre. The speed of service depends on how busy it is - sometimes it's very quick.... More

Fresh fish and seafood were delicious with a choice of sauces (some spicy, some less so), even the desserts were good. We shared a number of dishes and all were good.
