Our annual fishing trip was looking a little sketchy due to the Covid19 pandemic, and we we're bummed out that Jon and Jill had to close the Tailhunter restaurant. We heard about the new FUBAR Cocina Cantina but were a little skeptical about trying it...out. Holy smokes were we pleasantly surprised! The food was amazing as always, service was top notch, and the seating right on the Malecon was an added bonus. Although the big restaurant was closed, Tailhunter managed to bring to the Cantina all of the quality we have come to expect, but also added a new wrinkle with the addition of a grab and go snack shop. As always we were impressed with the dedication to great service and awesome food that keeps us coming back to Tailhunter every year.More

Great location on the Malecon. With the new expanded sidewalk there is plenty of room and the scenery cant be beat. The food and service is outstanding. They offer superb cocktails and plenty of ice cold cerveza. From great seafood to the best beef hamburgers...in La Paz. Love It.More

Relaxing sidewalk place to eat that isn't a taco stand! Great selection of food offerings but with just getting opened from Covid closure many places were still trying to get the necessary supplies. Food prepared as ordered and beer was cold! Additional benefit is that...the owners are on site and treat you like family! Have been eating here for the past 7 years although this is a scaled down version again due to Covid.More

Although the dining is reduced to the downstairs cantina, the food and service are still what we've come to expect from Tailhunter. The tacos are great and the hamburgers are still the biggest and best in town.

Worst restaurant experience in La Paz. Basic Méxican pub grub menu unless you know about the off menu items... like fresh ceviche and guacamole. Drinks were from bottled mixers with minimal alcohol. Service was non-existent.More

We have eaten here many times over the years. Always outstanding. We had shrimp tacos and they were the best we have ever had anywhere. The Cantina is refreshing and Jonathan & Jill are the best.

My husband and went to LaPaz Mexico for his belated retirement and our anniversary! My brother and his wife also came!! We had a fabulous time! Food at Tailhunter’s was always five star!! Our first day out fishing they cooked up some of our fish...for us and it was delicious!! Even my sister-in-law that hates fish loved the Dorado they cooked!! Also my husband caught a 125 pound sailfish which I have to say was one big thing off his bucket list and a dream come true!! We invited our Captain Joel and his family to dinner at Tailhunter’s to have some of the sailfish and to celebrate our anniversary!! It was unbelievable good!! Everyone at Tailhunter’s treat you like family and let me tell you Mike can make you up some fantastic drinks!! Jonathan and Jill are amazing they do everything they can to make your trip memorable and fantastic! We really can’t say enough about them!! If you want to go on a great vacation and you love to fish it’s a must!! Give them a call you won’t be disappointed!!!More
