We really liked this restaurant. The menu was varied, with some more unusual options than you usually find in Bolivia. I was very happy to find a vegetarian dish, ratatouille, and it was really tasty! There's wine from Bolivia or Argentina if you prefer that - the red Argentine wine was my favourite. It's a lovely place too, very nice... More

After a long day traveling fighting through potholes and landslides, our evening meal was the best we had in Bolivia. Sylvain was a wonderful host and the food was delicious, well-presented all in a wonderful setting. Definite yes

We were very happy to find this place, after a long drive from Santa Cruz it was difficult to find a good dinner after the holy weekend. Firstly the service we received was excellent, and we found the food delicious. The tabla de Mesa was great to start and we enjoyed their pastas. Also try the wines from Samaipata, like... More

Excellent food, great environment, friendly people. They don´t always offer it, but when they do, you must try their lasagna. It is fantastic.

We went here a lot as it was the only place in the village that had reliable internet. The food was good (but more pricey than other places in the town).

We enjoyed the food here except for the soup. The inside was dim and rustic in a good way and there was a nice fire in the fireplace to take the edge off the cool air.

The food was quite average. My steak was nice but a bit overcooked, quite small and served with fried potatoes and rice. I just don’t get rice and potatoes on the same plate. The brownie I had for desert was too dry, overcooked and served hot. The service was good while the male waiter was there. Then he went out... More
