Been going and inviting people from all over the world to LATINA CAFE for over 8 YEARS now, and although I never really rate things, I feel this just might be the RIGHT PLACE to start. Our entire lives' depend on TRUTH, at least for me, so here's what: LATINA CAFE WAS, IS and probably ALWAYS WILL BE YOUR BEST... More

Went there for lunch. It took a while to find the restaurant but after several asks, we made it. Beef steak was tender with good portion. Went well with the Argentinian house wine. When we were there, a local musician was playing some melodic Latin songs which enhanced the experience. A good place to go.

We really liked this restaurant. The menu was varied, with some more unusual options than you usually find in Bolivia. I was very happy to find a vegetarian dish, ratatouille, and it was really tasty! There's wine from Bolivia or Argentina if you prefer that - the red Argentine wine was my favourite. It's a lovely place too, very nice... More

After a long day traveling fighting through potholes and landslides, our evening meal was the best we had in Bolivia. Sylvain was a wonderful host and the food was delicious, well-presented all in a wonderful setting. Definite yes

We were very happy to find this place, after a long drive from Santa Cruz it was difficult to find a good dinner after the holy weekend. Firstly the service we received was excellent, and we found the food delicious. The tabla de Mesa was great to start and we enjoyed their pastas. Also try the wines from Samaipata, like... More

Excellent food, great environment, friendly people. They don´t always offer it, but when they do, you must try their lasagna. It is fantastic.

We went here a lot as it was the only place in the village that had reliable internet. The food was good (but more pricey than other places in the town).

We enjoyed the food here except for the soup. The inside was dim and rustic in a good way and there was a nice fire in the fireplace to take the edge off the cool air. Main courses were prepared well. We got soups for our 3 daughters. Not impressed at all. Bolivia sells little packaged powder soups and that... More
