I am SO thankful we stumbled across La Fonda on our recent trip to La Paz! In terms of culinary delights, this place saved our trip! We were only in town one week and dined here twice. The first time was on Valentine's day. then one night we ordered food to go but enjoyed the patio while we waited for... More

Starting with the ivy-covered garden, you know you're in for something special when you enter La Fonda. In business since 1999, everything is homemade to the highest standards. My girlfriend had a fish filet in cilantro cream sauce while I enjoyed chicken in mole Poblano. Both were excellent. This is not a tourist restaurant and clearly caters to locals in... More

Go see Racardo and ask for a recommendation. He won't steer you wrong. Decent prices and they have a fun little courtyard.

You need to remember La Paz is not a resort community so most, if not all of the restaurants will be catering to the local population. So with that in mind, "bone up" on your spanish...There will not be an english version menu (like in the Los Cabos area), and the employees might not speak english. We visited La Fanda... More

This is a fabulous find for Local Mexican cuisine. Delightful and affordable. Three of us had dinner for 370 pesos. The menu is not extensive and they were out of chicken and shrimp when we were there. But we all had fresh fish and it was fantastic. I recommend the pescado Veracruz which is fish with tomatoes, onions and peppers.... More

I believe it is spelled "La Fonda"? Great place, casual and probably the best bargain for good local food in town! Highly recommended by locals and Gringos alike!

La Fonda, yes spelled FONDA not FANDA, is one of the gems of local La Paz cuisine. Located at the corner of Nicolas Bravo & Revolucion downtown, this large place has both indoor & outside patio seating. When we ordered our lunch, we had no idea of the portions, which were huge. The Combination plate (plato mixto) included a tostada,... More
