Have eaten here a number of times in the past few years. Always great. We told the owner we had family visiting from Canada and they put on a huge spread of traditional foods for us all to enjoy. From food to drinks it was amazing. The food just keep coming. The restaurant its self is very unique in its decor. Clean and inviting just like going to a friends place. Definitely would recommend this place

My mother went faithfully to El Zarape ever since the day they opened and until the day she died- every Sunday without fail. They waited on her hand and foot, the reward for being faithful. The food is original, unique and changes with the holiday seasons. Yes, it has been a while since I was last there, but the owner of the restaurant is the president of La Paz`s restaurant association so I doubt that anything has changed since my last visit.

The restaurant is nice enough and the people are friendly and courteous. The food seemed over priced for what you got. There are a lot of restaurants in town that have better food and much better prices.

Wonderful traditional food, all sourced locally. The owner is very gracious and delighted to chat and so enthusiastic about Mexico and her restaurant. The Frieda gallery is pretty neat too.

The servings are very large so we took some home and it was a lovely treat for lunch on the veranda of our condo rental overlooking the marina the next day!

We'll definitely return on our next trip to La Paz.
