This was one of my worst eating experiences ever. First, after an excruciating wait to be served, even though the place was almost empty, the frowning waitress finally brought us 3 dishes for 2 people and refused to accept her error even though we're both fluent Spanish speakers. My partner's dish (pique macho with quinoa) was missing key ingredients and... More

This is situated in a Square of Potosi. The food wasn't great. Service was poor. Spent at least 10 mins working out the bill which should have been simple and running around the square trying to find change. Why does noone in Bolivia have change? Not really recommended, but haven't seen much better in this stopoff town to be honest.

We couldn't finish a single pizza slice as the cheese tasted rancid,the base was burnt, and the chorizo was off. Rockerfort pasta was just noodles with milk. Cappucino tasted like instant coffee with 99% skim milk. Very dissapointed. Stay away from this one.

One of the worst restairant experiences in Bolivia. Advocado in the guacamole was rotten and black , when we mentioned this they were obviously aware already but still charged us for the nachos. Chicken was raw. Portions ridiculously small for the price.

Average service, average food. Don't expect too much from this place. Price wise it is very comparable to other restaurants in the area, So I recommend walking around a little.

Limited offerings for lunch. Waitress with not even basic knowledge. Waiting time more than 45 minutes and we received cold food, and when we dare to complain about one of the dishes (hard to cut meat and raw portions), we werre warned not to even think on not paying for the dish. Not friendly people.

I ordered burritos and my friend chicken. Two other friends ordered pizza. We had to wait very long and the pizza arrived first. When they finished their pizza we still didn't have ours. I went to the waitress, but she only spook Spanish. After I complained. we got our food. My burritos were way to salty and the chicken of... More

Food was nothing special, very small portions and very overpriced. Service was slow and unfriendly. Tip: for tasty food at local prices, head to one of the barbecue places on the corner of Av. Potosi and Camacho.
