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

We came upon this place while walking the Malecon on a warm afternoon. Martin greeted us with a promise of 3 Margeritas for $100 pesos or 6 cold beer for $120 pesos and promised our money back if we didn't like the food. We walked by and about 15 minutes later, after not finding anything else that seemed better we... More

We stopped by for drinks and stayed awhile, due to great drinks and friendly service! I had a virgin frozen margarita- huge and tasty. My husband had his margarita on the rocks and it was equally good. Staff was friendly and knowledgable about La Paz

We have always good luck at Catrina's. Chips and a spicy bean dip were brought out immediately. My wife had the... More
