We stopped for an early dinner and enjoyed the setting on the patio, at the south end of the beach on the La Paz malecon (sea wall). Even the tables were lovely and seats were comfortable. Some of the menu items are pricey, overy 300 pesos a plate, but many are less expensive. We shared a kilo of white clams in a delicious buttery sauce, into which we dipped bread. YUM! Then my lasagna came, but the chef changed the tortellini ordered from my wife from a mushroom -stuffed to stuffed with ham and other things she does not like. She did not want to dish so just had another beer. The two dishes we DID eat were very good, the setting is lovely. But if they change the menu items the menu should be revised. This is a dance club at night, with a full bar etc. Could have been a contender, but...

Stella's is right at the end of the Malecon with a fantastic view from the patio. I've only had their pizzas so far. And, if you love thin crust pizza, you need look no further for the best in La Paz. The rest of the dishes I've admired being served look authentic and very delicious. I could tell from other diners that that is an accurate description. The wait staff is extremely friendly, courteous, and always there when you need them; must be mind readers. Besides the great view of the La Paz waterfront, the patio is a great place for kids! If they get restless, they can step off onto a wide sand beach and run off that excess energy. And, no problem keeping an eye on them as you enjoy the rest of your meal. Go for the view! Stay for the food!

The food at Stella's was good. I had a fruit and lettuce salad with some cheese which was great. I prefer US cheese, but am getting used to Mexican cheese which is quite different. The service was good. A bit on the expensive side by Mexican standards, but still a good buy at US prices. Dinners and 1 drink each for about $28.
