This is one of the best restaurants in downtown Asuncion, the river fish surubi is served here, and you must try it. Of course the nice meat cuts are delicious, and lunch can be finished with a nice cortado - coffee . The ambience is really friendly, can become crowded very fast, but it is second to none in the...

Pretty cool place with friendly staff opened 24h every day. The place is an old school one, it's been working since 1960. Surubi(sweet water fish) soup is so tasty, a good start. As main plate, a nice opition is the "Surubi na Teja(roof tile)". Good price also!

I like to visit this place because it has a secure outside dining area where you can enjoy your food from an extensive menu and watch the people walking by. There is something for everyone and my favorite is cuadril which is a nice steak.

We were walking a couple of blocks from our hotel on Estrella St. when we saw this restaurant with locals visiting it. We figured if locals eat there, the food must be tasty so we ate there, the next day and the next, until we left the city for our next destination. It's not fancy but the food is yummy... More

Excellent and inexpensive food with great attentive service. Old institution, with a variety of dishes that can please anyone. Always crowded with classy people and families. I was pleasantly surprised when I tried a local red wine made by Mennonites. It was very good and went down well with my perfectly cooked filet mignon and salad.

Thank Count-Mascetti
