El Bismarksito is located right across from the beach, so the view and passing trade is always interesting. There are Mariachi bands passing though all the time, so you can always pay a few Pesos for a song or two. The restaurant is open onto the pavement, where there are more tables and chairs, and as is typical for these... More

It was really hot when we went to the Bismarksito. The service was very average as was the food. Maybe because the World Cup was on that made everyone less attentive, it was recommended by many expat locals so we tried it. Not very impressed.

The lobster and marlin tacos are great. We didn't try the seafood cocktails this time, but were very good and fresh the last time we had lunch. The flour tortillas are excellent but a bit on the heavy side. A must in La Paz!

Good service, good portions but nothing to write home about. There are better places to eat at La Paz.

The Bismark is a place where lots of locals eat and that is always a good sign. Also when it gets really hot the have fans that blow a mist of water thru them and they cool things down nicely without the chill of A/C I had the Dorado tacos and they were very good. Just note that they do... More

The El Biskmarksito is a must visit place if you're ever in La Paz. I was a frequent visitor to their parent restraunt The Bismark for years, which is located more in the central part of town as the El Bismarksito is located on the Malecon....the food was great...fish tacos to die for and because it is right across the...

Heard others talk about how great was. Service was slow and disinterested. (our waiter was much more interested in hanging out and talking with other wait staff than attending to our table. Food was good. Portions were small for the price.

This is our favorite Resturant in La Paz. Great ceviche, great assortment of seafood and a nice area in front of the waterfront for a walk after dinner.

Had lunch here while watching the World Cup and enjoyed the best margaritas in La Paz! Almost everything on the menu is seafood so if you are looking for more of a Mexican meal with rice, beans, and meat this is not the place to go. Seafood was fresh and they have many different ceviches to choose from. This restaurant... More

This is one of my parents' favorite restaurants but not exactly one of my own. I go there only when I have to for some birthday party dinner/lunch and I always have a hard time picking a dish to eat, because I don't enjoy most of them. The waiters and waitresses are amicable enough, they take your orders fast and... More
