The food was good but the prices are too much over the top. The owner seems to have forgotten he is in Bolivia.. and having prices as high as in Europe.. Service average. Place with decoration that need to be refreshed. Good to go for lunch tough, prices are more correct, but you won't deserved plates from the menu.

I had the bratwurst and it was perfectly cooked and came with a side of sauerkraut and potato salad. I really like eating here when I visit Santa Cruz. The atmosphere is great. They have this really nice patio with tables and also tables inside.
