We are a Mexican food Restaurant with inside and outdoor sitting. Enjoy our great specialty's, Mojitos and Margaritas. Don't be scared of our host "The Catrina" she's been here since Cristobal Colon discovered America and came down to Baja California Sur leaving her on the beach while she was collecting some shells.

Good food, good value

We ate here twice. It was walking distance from Posada LunaSol along the Malecon. The fish tacos are excellent as is the guacamole. And the service was friendly.

We took advantage of drink specials and a wide menu to eat here a couple of times. The waiter speaks outstanding English and give us a lot of tips about visiting La Paz. We came here a third time when all the tourists were out in force on an afternoon, and were ignored, so that sort of soured the experience.... More

We were visiting off of the cruise ship for the day and wanted some good local Mexican food and drinks. This restaurant was a great choice, the Margaritas were good, the second round was even better. Their guacamole was very fresh, the prices were very reasonable and the server was very prompt and friendly, what more could you want? Would... More

We ordered a hot pot fish and shrimp enchiladas. The appearance of hot pot looks colorful, but fish sticks are over cooked without much taste. The fish hot pot has a few fish sticks but two pieces of hot dogs and cheese sticks. What kind of mixes. The dip source for chips are very good.

We have eaten at Catrinas twice. The first time we had the specialty of the house which was four meats, cheese, cactus, peppers cooked in a big black pot. I don't remember the name of it, but it was GREAT! The second time we went there, we tried to order the same beef that was in the big black pot,... More

Coconut shrimp was great. The hot pot is something we did not try but meant to go back for. Atmosphere was great for friends. Nice little street setting. MARTIN was very entertaining. Would go back on our next trip.

Had the best meal of the week here. Nice outdoor seating in a pedestrian courtyard. They put big fans to help with the heat since there was no AC. I'd recommend the skirt steak quesadillas, though most of the other dishes on the table looked good too.

We walked along the main waterfront thoroughfare of LaPaz and came upon this small restaurant. We returned the next evening with our freshly caught cabrilla for happy hour. The fish was cooked to perfection so we returned the next night with trigger fish and they grilled the fish and prepared ceviche. Job well done. Now we have to go back... More

We were doing a day trip from a cruise ship and looking for a good lunch, margaritas and nice outdoor seating. We went to Carina’s because it was a bit less “touristy” and the owner said if we did not like the food we would not have to pay. We split a beef Mochete. This is a hot stone vessel... More
