I was in the mood for some arrachera before returning to San Diego. We first went to Rancho Cocina, but after a five minute wait for anybody to bring us a menu or something we got up and left. We have always good luck at Catrina's. Chips and a spicy bean dip were brought out immediately. My wife had the... More

We were looking for a local place with a lot of caracter and had a great bohemian night. We are vegetarian and found enough options to eat and loved the bohemian ambiance, location and service. La única cosa que debo decir es que la facturación no es rápida todavía no la he recibido.

We intended to eat at El Tupe but found it closed for reservations. So we were hungry when we stumbled upon Catrina's. Food was really nice with generous portions. Great fresh salsa and the guacamole is worth waiting for. Everything we had was fresh and well prepared, and the staff was really friendly (especially Diego). Colourful local patrons if you... More

Wonderful food and friendly waiters. Beware, the hot food here really is hot. We had a little trouble finding it since it wasn't seen from the street.

Our waiter, Martin, made the whole experience eating at this restaurant with excellent food enjoyable. The restaurant is just 20 yards on a side street off the main tourist section of the malecon. Ask Martin about tours in the La Paz area...he will set you up with very competitive prices depending on what level of comfort you need.
