Eating here is so surreal. This place is peaceful and clean. Food is excellent. You wouldn't feel that you are having a lunch in the chaotic La Paz.

The tables are in the garden with canopy. Ambiance and food are both great. Not too difficult to find and it is not too far away from the main road. It wasn't busy when I ate there, I was the first table and there was another one, probably some local businessmen or government officials.

As that place was not busy, the waiter took time to introduce the place and menu to me, and also helped me to take pictures. So friendly.

The food is some western / Italian with a local flavour. I like it.

It is not expensive at all by US standard.

The place is indeed a hotel, and you can walk up to see the rooms. There is also a little shop selling handicrafts and Bolivian products.

This small restaurant is open for lunch only in an adorable restaurant located behind the Ritz Hotel. Located in the old Panamanian Consulate building, the restaurant is very clean and airy (in contrast to the rest of the city). The grounds were adorable with landscaping and even a single seat swing! The hibiscus drink was the best I've ever had and the service was absolutely impeccable (our waiter was a complete gentleman)! We ordered the duck salad (could've used some dressing but still very delicious and light) and coq au vin chicken (koko de pollo). I would highly recommend this restaurant. It was one of the best meals we had in La Paz (which in general unfortunately didn't impress me in the food department).

Superb quality of food, presentation and service. It would be considered excellent in the US, and in Bolivia it simply is an incredible find.

I had one afternoon meal here and found the ambiance and food delightful. Peaceful setting for a frenetic city.
A bit difficult to locate, but near the Prado.
The service was very good as well.

The place is as cozy, well-kept and superbly-located as it has always been, but it badly needs a new menu for regulars. Tourists will probably find it more attractive. The building also houses a gift shop and a travel agency.
