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!!

Very decent lunch Menu if you need a pause around the San Francisco Area. Don't miss the Craft Saya Beer. I even returned at night the next day just for another pint. The rest of the Menu I would consider it overpriced for La Paz, however a sandwich that my friend asked looked appropriate.

Eat here twice during my stay in La Paz. Once for an evening meal and then the following lunch. Evening meal was very good, nice big portion and great taste. The place was really busy but we managed to get a table. Service was good, after reading the reviews I was expecting it to be slow. Even though it was... More

Hallo colins5286, Thanks for your excellent review! I am glad you enjoyed both meals at our restaurant. 15 Min is indeed a really reasonable time to prepare a meal. Especially when you keep in mind that everything get prepared fresh, many people expect a soup for example to be ready within 5 min. That would be the case if we... More

The service was somewhat slow, but the food was absolutely excellent. I have never had better food in this price range. We decided to come back a second time during our stay in La Paz, and we were not disappointed.

Hallo Per Christian C, Thanks for your review, good to hear you loved our food and even returned for a second time! July has been extremely busy for us, unfortunely that makes everybody wait a little longer. Especially when everybody starts to order cocktails. Our bar is small so only 1 bartender can work on cocktails at the moment. I... More

Ate here for a dinner and breakfast and was impressed. Reading lots of reviews it seems people have very high (maybe too high expectations of food in La Paz) but we were impressed.

Hi Paul K, Thank you for your excellent review! The thing with reviewing sites like this is that people remember to write something when it was bad but tend to forget when it was good.

We went to the restaurant on the basis of the good comments on TripAdviser and as far as the food is concerned it was very good. I had an Indonesian dish with peanut sauce and my girlfriend had a caesar salad. At first she got a russian salad by mistake and it took quite some time until the caesar salad... More

I'm not dutch, so besides the "Hup Holland" banners around, it's not like the place screams "Dutch". It's definitely catered to tourists, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. The food is fantastic, reasonably priced (although much more expensive than the standard local restaurants), and they have great drink specials like 2x1 most nights. Very cozy atmosphere, and friendly staff... More

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.
