Our first night in La Paz, my wife and I had dinner at the Tailhunter Restaurant. We had a great meal and the service was superb. The shrimp tacos were fantastic! The owner Jonathan and his wife Jill, came by to check on us and they stayed and talked with us for quite some time. They let us know all... More

The restaurant is situated on the malecon and has a very nice view of the water. The staff are all super friendly, and the owners good people. I've never had a bad meal. Considering that they also own and operate charters, the fish at their restaurant always seems to be catch of the day. They have a menu that fits... More

The owners, Jonathan and Jilly Roldan treat you like family, stopping by to check on you and your dinner. Friendly service by the wait staff as well. We loved the Pakalolo Ribs Platter. The tasty ribs came with a great cole slaw and very sweet corn. I enjoyed my piña colada and my friends liked their margaritas as well. It... More

The best thing about Tailhunter is its location overlooking the malecon. The food is fine but nothing special. It's not exactly authentic, as there's clearly a big business for gringos. Service fine and prompt, but v little ambiente.

We dined here several times. I even waited at Tailhunter's while my wife had her hair done next door. Excellent views on the second floor, and above. This is the quiet end of the bay of La Paz, away from the kiosk and hectic tourist areas. The shrimp dishes are tasty, and the beer selection is excellent. The owner/manager is... More

We had a great time at Tailhunters. Food was outstanding I had Short ribs twice! We were with 11 friends. Nothing left on plates. When does that happen? I liked the third story small cigar area with a great view of the sea. Chips and salsa :)

Had a wonderful dinner and excellent service at Tailhunter. It was our first time to La Paz and Tailhunter. The food was fresh and what an extensive menu. We sampled 5 different plates and they were all fantastic. The service was spot on and the waiters spoke perfect English and made wonderful recommendations. The ambiance is one you do not... More

After a long day of traveling Tailhunter is always the first place we stop, we like to pick up cold beer, and water for our room. We were greeted by the owners Jonathan & Jillian Roldan, super fun people, very informative. Went to the 2nd level of the restaurant to eat and watch the sunset. Food always good, and generous...
