One of the oldest restaurants in Asuncion. Outstanding service. Quite a long menu but I can assure that everything that I have already ordered here was great! Always packed during lunch time, try to make a reservation or to arrive early.

This Classic Asuncion restaurant has a huge menu and the food is good. Portions are generous. We enjoyed sitting there in the afternoons where there are happy hours and many people.

Visited this restaurant on our first night in Asuncion on a Saturday before Christmas! The place was busy at 9pm when we arrived with tables set up through the street and a big music event occurring in the heroes square round the corner, within half an hour all tables were packed with all ages, and the menu reflected this variety...

An Asuncion classic. It seems that the Bolsi has been there since the foundation of the city... and it continues to deliver!

I spent a few days in Ascuncion and I ended up eating my dinners at Restaurant Bolsi because the atmosphere was lively, the comfort food a nice change for South America, and the service quick and friendly. I was pleasantly surprised to find this gem, and landmark I understand, in Ascuncion. As well, it was affordable.

We arrived in Asuncion with the night bus from Iguazu at 5am on a Sunday. The entire city was asleep and we reluctantly entered Bolsi, which is open 24 hours, but did not look very inviting. We ordered their breakfast special and were pleasantly surprised at generous portions, low prices and good taste. And even good coffee - a rare... More

This local restaurant is divided into two sections. One is a fancy sit down restaurant with waiter service etc. The other is a cafe style dining with indoor/outdoor sitting. The food is excellent and it's the only restaurant in the downtown are that is open 24 hrs. Their empanadas are delicious.

It's one of the best all around restaurants in Asuncion. Not spectacular, just good food. I enjoy the covered area on the street.

This year marked the 40th anniversary of my first visit to Asuncion and the Bolsi - then known as La Pergola del Bolsi - then already well established, is still going strong. Located in the old and now somewhat run-down but still vibrant centre of the city, the Bolsi, which is open 24 hours a day, remains a favourite, is... More
