Description: Cafe-restaurant Sol y Luna is a Dutch owned and managed bar/restaurant. Because we have 4 areas, we can cater for several occasions. When you enter the restaurant it might look small, and around dinner time fully booked, but we do have a bigger restaurant area at the back upstairs. Downstairs we have the pool area with the possibility to have some drinks or a meal on comfy couches. If you carry on from there you will find our non-smoking area. You can come in to watch some sport on the flat screen TV's, read a book from our book exchange, check the internet via our free Wi-Fi or plan what the next leg on your journey will be with help from our reference guidebook collection During big and important sport matches we will turn our upstairs area in to a real sport cinema with a beamer projecting the game on a massive screen and we get the sound through the sound system!!

Taken in by some Dutch friends as it is probably one of the only Dutch restaurants you'll ever find. Many Classic Dutch dishes plus a couple of popular dishes which are also popular in the Netherlands. Not the cheapest but not expensive either. Nice atmosphere and good food.

My boyfriend and I ate there due to recommendations of other backpackers in La Pas. As we soon find out- there was nothing to be exited about The atmosphere is nice and the beer is good.

Hey Rotem_zirler, Thanks for your respond, any review helps us to get our business a little better. I am sorry to hear that our arabic plate wasn't up to your standard. We always get a lot of good words about the falafel, hummus and the vegetarian pasta. Looking at your other reviews maybe your expectations are a bit to high... More

There is a great atmosphere in this restaurant. It is centrally located, just a couple of streets away from the witches market. I came here with a tour group of around 12 people and we didn't have to wait long for our food. They do great burgers and a good selection of cocktails. The candles everywhere created a nice warm...

Thanks for your review Jolyon, I really appreciate it when people take the time to write a review and give me some tips on how to improve the cafe-restaurant a little. The burgers you are talking about are normally not on the menu, but aslong as we have the right ingredients we can make it! Just ask for it. I... More

This place used to be better. I have been here quite a few times over the years. Nowadays it is not that good of a value for money, real gringo prices they charge. And food used to be better. For example the shoarma they serve, it is really oily and not that big of a portion. It is still ok... More

We had a late lunch/early dinner here when staying in La Paz an found the food to be very good. They didn't have most of the beers that were on the board advertised, but that's not really something that bothered us, although we had read that others experienced this in there too. The decor is nice and with the restaurant... More

We enjoyed the food at this restaurant/bar, and found the atmosphere quite comfortable, but were disappointed with the drinks prices and painfully slow service. We were told that it was table service, and waited (initially patiently, then a little less patiently) a long time for service... to the point where friends then came in and ordered take-away which they received...

I was surprised when I chanced upon this nice pub/restaurant and the menu turned out to have Dutch food and Belgian beer, what luck! :) The bitterballen, spekpannekoek and saté kroket tasted great and were exactly what I needed after six months away from home! The stella artois and leffe were reasonably priced and obviously very tasty. Homesick Dutchmen; here... More
