We're staying in the hotel and have visited the restaurant a couple of times now. The food is really high quality and the service standard is high. Definitely recommended (try the llama fillets and chicken broth)

Tambo Colonial is in the beautiful Hotel Rosario in central La Paz. They have a complete menu, specializing in traditional Bolivian dishes. Food is well-prepared and staff are professional.

We stayed at Hotel Rosario and ate at the restaurant several times. When we first arrived to La Paz we experience altitude sickness. We were grateful for the restaurant in the hotel and the ability to have soup brought to our room. The soup was delicious. We also had a light, late-night meal of just the stuffed avocado one evening... More

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.

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.
