Seafood you want?

Had the New England Clam Chowder which took a very long time to be served, about 40 minutes. The flavor however is splendid, the flavor actually erased my displeased demeanor.Also recommend the chocolata clam cocktail. Service does take a little while so be patient.

Wife had the lobster and I the Cabrilla (sea bass) and new england style clam chowder. The clam chowder was easily as good as legal seafood if not better. Served in a bread bowl it was a pleasant surpise. Great location across from the Malecon. Menu is extensive so there are lots of choices.

This must be one of the most popular restaurants in La Paz, with a very good location about halfway through the Malecon, facing the water. It was highly recommended to us by someone from La Paz. While we were there, there was a never ending stream of diners, both locals and tourists. The main attraction seems to be their selection... More

I just spent a week in La Paz and was using Trip Advisor to check restaurants that my wife wanted to go to. She's from La Paz, so I trusted her judgement, but I was curious to see anyway. When she said we were going to the Bismarkcito, I got a little concerned since a lot of the more recent... More

we went to Bismark Cito for Dinner. They did not offer the Tacos Pescados so we took a grilled fish and a filet. The fish was grilled far too long and on th ebottom side was dripping the fat. The filet also was more regular. In general not a bad restaurant but for me too high rated and too expensive... More

I have a hard time being in La Paz around lunch time and trying new places because I love Bismark Cito so much. Over the years I have never seen steamed clams cooked the way they do it....individually wrapped in foil...with tons of garlic inside...the most delicious way to eat chocolate clams! The waiters are always so friendly and helpful...and... More

Stopped twice on our last visit. The server suggested the fresh catch of the day. Great advice. Reasonable pricing 6 of us ate for under $200 US. this included drinks. The steak here is also very good. But the seafood is the best.

You may think you have had the best seafood of your life, at a reasonable price, with a view of the Pacific but unless you ate at the Bismark cito, you are just fooling yourself. My family and I have had great seafood at reputable restaurants all over the USA and Mexico but the meal we had at the Bismark... More

You get a lot for your money here. By the time we finished the ceviche we ordered as an appetizer, we hardly had room for our entrees. Great food and prompt service too.

We ate here twice in the last 2 weeks. Fish tacos were cheap- 12 pesos each - and included a good selection of toppings. Came for a meal off the menu after the Carnaval parade. We thought the food was good - and there was plenty of it. Great salsa with the chips!
