We visited Tailhunter several times on our recent family vacation to La Paz (August 2015). On one occasion, we had the Dorado, caught just hours earlier by my 12-year old son, cooked up for us by the Tailhunter Chef in 3 different, amazing ways! It was the best dinner of our trip! We were visited by Jonathon and Jilly, the... More

I hesitated going here in the past because this restaurant caters mostly to Gringo fishermen and US tourists, who, well, may be a little fussy and foolish at times. So I didn't go . . . until last week. When I entered and went upstairs I was greeted warmly by "Geraldo", who was authentic and sincere. I ordered the teriyaki... More

If you want the best service and view on the Malecon this is for sure your place. The beer is always really cold and the food is very good. Jonathan and Jillene are wonderful people.

The Tailhunter Restaurant serves fabulously prepared food from an equally fabulous menu. Service is great and the hospitality is unmatched. The sunset view across the bay with the sea breeze drifting through this open-air restaurant cannot be beat. This is a family restaurant with great local atmosphere where the owners, Jonathon and Jilly, will greet you at the door and/or... More
