We were told this is a famous restaurant in Santa Cruz. Many of the locals will come here for special occasions. While we were there a pair of famous Mexican singers showed up with an entourage of TV cameras so it must have a reputation. It is a bigger restaurant and was quite crowded when we arrived. If you care... More

Our first day in Santa Cruz Bolivia. We were told this would be like any typical Argentine restaurant in the states. It was to some point. Although I think I was a bit hesitant to try everything, because we were in Bolivia. Now that I look back on it it was pretty good quality. I definitely tried everything and left... More

If you want to eat typical food and be sure you'r eating things in good condition you must visit this place........ all the options are good but I recommend the “majadito de charque".... is really good... and as I told you always.... try it with a “Huari miel" beer...

A nice restaurant. A place that every tourist should no miss in Santa Cruz. Great grilled skirt steak. You will also enjoy very much regional meal, if you wish.

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!

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.
