El Bismarkcito

This well known restaurant grew from a small taco stand to one of the most notorious restaurants in La Paz. Located right on the Malecon, the restaurant specializes in Mexican seafood dishes.

Baja Seafood Inspired by a Battleship

Rating: 3/5

Even though the owners named this sprawling restaurant for a World War II battleship, the setting is actually quite peaceful, along La Paz’s Malecon and across from the shimmering blue water in the Sea of Cortes. Their massive menu includes seven different categories of seafood, and we managed to make a sizable dent. Chocolatas are local, brown-shelled clams that are especially fresh at Bismark-cito, and they squirm when squeezed with lime juice. Other highlights include Albondigas de Camaron, sweet shrimp meatballs that bob in a lip-tingling tomato and seafood broth. Crab tacos spotlight sweet pulled meat, and an aguachile touts silky sea scallops, which we gladly speared with toothpicks.
