Come before 12! Get there early.

We went in the morning. They had chicken and beef and they came out piping hot! The juice will burn your fingers or mouth so beware and use the spoon. The food was soo good that we wanted to get takeaway at 1:30pm but it was already closed! The only bad thing about this place is that it is... read more

Try the both types of salteñas the chicken and beef one. They were both delicious but I did prefer the chicken one ! They also have very reasonable prices 7-10 bolivianos for each salteña. The service wasn't the best but it could've just been an off day. I recommend getting a milkshake with your salteñas ! This was probably my... More

Go here for a saltena. Great flavours and textures. Full of locals... Therefore must be good. Try eat there if it's not too busy or bring your own spoon and go to a park.

If you are visiting Sucre and want to try the "salteña" experience this is a great place to do it, good flavor, the right amount of seasoning and perfect spiciness, made with good ingredients, great experience in a beautiful colonial patio.

A tradition throughout Bolivia it is imperative that you take 'elevenses' at a restaurant or cafe serving Salteñas. El Patio is a specialist! The Salteñas are hot and delicious with a suitably thin pastry crust. Drinks served range from coffee through freshly prepared fruit juices with either milk or water and with or without sugar (I recommend with water and... More

Empanadas are delicious. Whatever flavour you ask for, you will love it. Just remember that if you ask for take away, get a spoon!

I line their blended fruit drinks and love their beef salteñas. In my opinion they are the beef salteñas in town. If you want chicken, I suggest going to Los Pasos de Los Abuelos. They've got the edge on the chicken ones!

Salteñas (which some have compared to very big, Argentine-type, baked empanadas) might be the best fast-food in Bolivia. I have Bolivian friends living in Sucre, and I've been coming to this town for month-long visits every-other year for the past twelve years. My major complaint with Sucre is that they do not realize that there might be a demand for... More

Not amazing food. A little too much sauce inside the Saltenas. Really busy but worth at least one try to compare the empanadas in Sucre.
