We had a dinner here and it was an amazing experience. Excellent service, fantastic food and - considering the quality - very decent prices. My lama steak here was probably the best I got in Bolivia. This restaurant is certainly a must in La Paz. A reservation is advisable, especially on the weekends.

Arrived at the restaurant, ordered a couple of bottles of water. Then the waiter disappeared. We then tried to place our order 3 times without success. Fourth time lucky, after sitting down for 30mins with nothing but a bottle of water. Let's be clear, the restaurant wasn't busy. We were one of 10 tables. When the food arrived it looked... More

Stayed at the Hotel Rosario and at at this restaurant. A great menu with balance of local and international options. Loved the trout and llama steak orders. Only seems to lack a good dessert menu

Tambo is an excellent restaurant where presentation is a signature expression. For dinner half the fun is watching everyone's places come out to see the amazing work don by the chefs. The dinner was great and staff very friendly. Breakfast for the Hotel Rosario is also served there and is quite tasty indeed.

This has to be one of the best restaurants in La Paz. Well, to be honest I ate here once and never went anywhere else after that because it was just such good food. The food is really well presented, well cooked, flavours are great, portion sizes are good and their desserts are just stunning and very yummy. And all... More

Excellent service and delicious food. Within the Hotel Rosario, so if you are staying there, you don't need to leave the hotel to get some of the best food Bolivia has to offer.

We had a loveley dinner here with a tasty salad to start off with and then Pasta Napoletana with eggplant. And the warm homemade bread with garlic butter is to die for!! The chocolate mousse is awesome, too!! The service was quiet outstanding! A must go in La Paz if you want something different than bolivian, Italian or Sushi!!

Just finished dinner from this gorgeous restaurant. The service was impeccable. If you're looking for a relaxing (and safe) Bolivian restaurant with a modern twist, you won't be disappointed.
