Elegant La Paz Dining at Steinbeck’s Restaurant
We dined as a guest of La Paz
When staying at Costa Baja Resort & Spa a night at Steinbeck’s is a must. The elegant restaurant features one of the best chefs in Baja who is pushing culinary boundaries with his delicious creations. On our second night in La Paz, we made reservations to have dinner at Steinbeck’s, and it was one of my favorite meals in La Paz.
I had already snuck a quick taste of the chef’s talents when having a couple of appetizers after a full day at Balandra beach. The quesadilla that the chef made was mind blowing, and truly the best quesadilla that I’ve ever sunk my taste buds into. Plus, their signature cocktail, the blue coconut Curacao, is unforgettable.
Before taking our seat in the elegant restaurant, we listened to live music on the outdoor patio while basking in the beautiful views of Marina Costa Baja as the sun set on the horizon. I could feel the cool ocean breezes in my hair as all my stresses from daily life drifted away.
Our four-course meal began with a light appetizer featuring a cherry tomato, goat cheese, and a sweet pesto sauce. It was the perfect small bite to begin our epicurean adventure.
Next, we were served a beautiful shrimp and black bean soup that was delicious and flavorful. The soup had an exquisite presentation as we were served all the fresh ingredients and then the waiter poured the creamy soup slowly over the ingredients to blend the flavors freshly together.
For the main course, we were served a fresh piece of fish that sat on a bed of a creamy corn sauce. The fish tasted like it has just been caught the morning before being served and I savored all the flavors of La Paz with each bite.
Finally, our meal ended with a brownie and ice cream with a sweet fruit sauce. It was the perfect ending to our dining experience at Steinbeck’s.
All of our meals were carefully paired with wines selected by the chef including one from my favorite winery in Valle de Guadalupe.
Steinbeck’s also features one of the largest collections of tequila with over 400 labels where guests are invited to make reservations for a tequila tasting.
Don’t miss having a memorable dining experience at Steinbeck’s when visiting La Paz. You’ll have excellent service, delicious cuisine, and unique cocktails. Reservations are available by contacting the concierge at Costa Baja Resort & Spa.
