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. Main courses were prepared well. We got soups for our 3 daughters. Not impressed at all. Bolivia sells little packaged powder soups and that... More

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

We went here every evening when we were in Samaipata. The food was good, the service was good, and there was WiFi. Also very cosy atmosphere. Not open for lunch.

We loved Latina Cafe. Ambiance is perfect. The food was good and well portioned. The service was attentive and friendly. For dessert we had a delicious brownie. So good we returned twice. Probably the best restaurant in Samaipata.

Overall this restaurant is good, but not excellent. This is a typical foreign owned restaurant, and also serving was not by Bolivians. The food was good but not excellent, and was a combination of local food with an international character. It is a little bit out of the way from the center of town - but still at a very... More

French ownership, same as 1900 Cafe on the plaza. Being a typical American I arrived early enough (7pm) to be the lone diner, although I think business is down everywhere in town, even later in the evening. Service was fine; I couldn't remember what the guide book said about tipping, so I didn't leave the young man enough -- please,... More

A little out of the way, unless you are staying in this part of town or are told by someone, this is probably somewhere you wouldn't discover. The atmosphere is good - soft lighting and good dinner music. The menu offers a good choice of options. The food is average but unfortunately not outstanding. The service is friendly, on the...

We ended up visiting Latina Cafe both nights we stayed in Samaipata. The food is delicious and the service very warm and friendly. They also had wifi which was helpful since our hostel didn´t!
