The altitude and rich salty terrain in this part of the world has created the perfect conditions for raising free range lamb. It is lean and tasty. Nayjama makes the best Cola de Cordero (the lower back of the lamb) you will ever taste. A must try when you visit Oruro!

Very Bad service, as soon as we enter the place, the waiter chief shout to the kitchen about the only available menu, all the other diners were disturbed! Later a new waitress came to our table, she was quite rude when my mother asked the way on how a dish was prepared. The food was half of what asked for.... More

It was a pleasant surprise. We didn’t really expect to find such a nice upmarket restaurant in this little town. It’s not trendy and the décor is a little dated by western standards, but hey, we are in Oruro and there is really not much here, so coming upon this rather lavish building in the middle of the relative squalor...

On the recommendation of 'The Rough Guide', which claims Nayjama is the best restaurant in Oruro we went along. What a disappointment. We chose the vegetarian plate - an assortment of vegetables, a quinoa burger, and two pieces of fried banana. Lots of variety, but the dish was boring - to the eye and the palate - and a little...

Had lunch here on a Sunday, so maybe that's why service was slow. Waitress wasn't friendly. Entrées were large and most around $50bs. Close to the train station.

We stopped by on our way to resale plains, and the service and food where very good, Oruro is a small Rural town. I have to say for its quality this place does make a difference...specially listening to Celine Dion's Titanic song on highland instruments....^^

This restaurant was recommended to us by a tour company in La Paz - the lamb, which is their speciality was very good, although suggest on portion between two as it was massive. Service wasn't great but it was a good lunch stop before jumping on the train to Uyuni.

This place is alright. Portions are big though, so if you don't eat much, I would suggest you share. The place is nice, and the menu is quite varied. They also serve a nice salad- which is rare in this part of the world!
