The restaurant is spectacular and unique. Made with all Bolivian products, their 5 or 7 course meal is guaranteed to be a one-of-a-kind experience. They have everything from llama steaks to cocoa butter, and they grow all their own herbs and vegetables. Each course also...came with an alcohol pairing :) The waiters all spoke English and were very knowledgeable about the food they served. It is definitely on the pricey side for Bolivia (I believe the 7-course meal was around $100, but I absolutely recommend it.More

Internatiinal standards food wine and service. A must do when in La Paz. If this was in New York or London you would pay 10 times the price.

Had the tasting menu and while not every dish wowed me there were some that were unique and breathtaking, such as the quail egg and amazonian fish.

Easy to make reservations online. Very nice decor- wouldn’t know you were in Bolivia. Polished. All ingredients were Bolivian. Menu changes roughly ever four months. Female chef!! Had starters which were great- especially the vegetarian starters. Did not love the alligator tails as others did....Too heavy on onions. Had the Trout and amazon fish- which was amazing. Wonderful sauce! The best fish dish I had ever had. Will not forget it. Desert was just fine- wish I had just ended on the fish. We ordered 3 starters. Two entrees. Two desserts and a bottle of wine- total was $90 USD. Definitely a must when in Bolivia. Also- cannot forget to give props to the lovely staff who clearly love their jobs!More

We eat out at fine-dining restaurant but to be honest, I can cook better than that and even remote cuisine that we had during our road trip in Uyuni was far better. Extremely disappointed for the price that we had paid for. Not sure they...squeezed into the top 50 Latin American restaurants? It’s ridiculous.More

I will start by saying I was utterly surprised by the excellent dining experience we had at Gustu, no this in not NY of Europe for that matter, but considering the context, I do give the restaurant and its founders a A plus. For our...party of 8 we didn't try the tasting menu but rather, individual plates which I think was a better solution and we got to try an assortment of plates all based on local ingredients, some more traditional and some, well, more edgy, like the caiman entree. The overall prices seemed quite reasonable for the kind of experience, lets not forget this is La Paz and not a US or European city, so definitely worth it! One of the most interesting aspects that few diners get to learn is that this restaurant and its culinary school is all an social responsibility project headed by a couple of Danish entrepreneurs: Klaus Meyer and Bertil Levin who are trying to raise the level of gastonomic culture to Bolivia, similar to what a few decades ago Gastón Acurio did in Perú. We got to meet and talk to Bertil who very kindly showed us the whole kitchen, lab, etc. Kudos to both of them, hopefully in a few years they will have consolidated this incredible endevour!!More

I am from holland and my hobby is to eat in nice restaurant, specialy with a michelin star. The ingredients are perfect, pure and special. But the taste is not on the level. To say short, totally not in balance, From all the 15 dishes,...only two were in balance, the rest, they all had one (of course every time different )heavy taste. So, not to compare with the level in europa. Perhaps you like it, but never compare it with the standard level of Michelin.More

La Paz was full of street protests - thankfully at the time peaceful - we took a taxi from our hotel in the centre - it is a long way south. Went for the tasting menu with wine pairing - it was a fantastic experience....Sadly I can't upload more than 10 photos so the 17 course tasting menu is cut short. When Bolivia gets back to being a safe place to go you must try this restaurant.More

Had the lunch tasting menu. I really enjoyed the overall experience. The dishes were well presented. Our waiter explained what each course was and how it should be enjoyed to maximise the experience. I'd say half of the dishes were really amazing. Half were dishes...that tasted nice but I had expected more (trout, pork belly to name a couple). The alligator with banana oil will forever stay with me because it was that good.More

Dress code is very relaxed in Gustu. When we went, we were dressed smart casual and that was absolutely fine. I didn't see anyone wearing a suit and tie.
