I've been going to La Casa del Camba for the last 25 years. It's a very traditional steak house. Although it has lost a lot of its luster, and there's much better steak houses in town, La Casa del Camba remains a traditional place to go. It's a lot cheaper than most steak places. I don't care much for the... More

They have good food from the region. It is one of the only of its kind that you can go to safely as far as sanitation is concerned but have had times when eating at their Urubo location people have gotten sick. This place is in town and has long standing. Always full. They say they process 9000 plates per... More

You always know what to expect from this restaurant. The food is good and good for the money you pay. The quality is always the same and the service fast! Can't make a mistake going here. It's not as fancy as other places but keeps its standards incredibly well! Safe bet

Can accommodate huge crowds. Always bustling. Very fun atmosphere. If you want to eat with the locals and their cuisine, this is the place! They have several locations. Food is all good and safe. If you get the table side grill, my only suggestion is not to seat the children towards the end of the table. As well, remove the... More

My coleagues brought me to this place for dinner. The offer of dishes, they explained to me, was a great selection of local and regional cusine. I went for as many dishes as I could manage but I was unable to cover more than a small portion of the list. Chicharron de lagarto... great Pique macho....a must Majadito....very good Piqueri...?...

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

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
