We went for dinner, and the place didn't seem as nice or festive as described by other reviewers. But it was still a pleasant dining experience. The food tasted good (but not great), the prices are reasonable, and the staff was friendly enough. Our hotel (Cortez) was just a half mile away, and that's why we gave it a try... More

Casa del Camba is our go-to for local goodness. The main restaurant has a good ambience and great food. More often than not, though, we get it in the food court at our nearest supermarket. My favorite: Bife de Chorizo, 42 bolivianos. That's right -- a steak, chorizo, rice (cheesy, please), yuca, and 2 salads for $6. Can't beat it!

Excellent place to soak up Bolivian vibe. Traditional cuisine and very very tasty. Great value for money. Would definitely recommend.

Very nice place with great ambience in a very typical setup. It is the best place to try the very typical cuisine and the service is awesome. Try the gator chunks!!

I chosed the "buffet" and found many different dishes - different sauces, very spicy sauces too. A band performs some of the time. And there's indoor and outdoor seating. Has a ranch feel with waiters in white country garb. Very nice interior. Me Gusta.

people were served fast and punctual. Grilled meet is the "buzz" word here and must admit "parilla" was tasty. For the first time tried lizard (white meet) and spicy green beans. Excellent cold Pacena and that's it! Great choice of sweets.

Get what they call the "buffet" and you can try several unusual dishes very local in character - watch out for spicy sauces. A band performs some of the time, and there's indoor and outdoor seating. Has a ranch feel with waiters in white country garb.

I was there twice with colleagues and service was very good on our second visit , the mix Bolivian platter was ok but nothing special. The meat was too hard too bite.

Eleven of us visited La casa del Camba for lunch. Tables were quickly arranged so that we could all sit together and within 2 minutes everyone was served with their drinks and their starters. The food is a mixture of traditional Bolivian food with 'Churrasco' (BBQ) meats and chicken. Everything was served piping hot (not usual here) and there was... More
