This place is a must when visiting Asuncion. Food is always good, breakfast, lunch, dinner and merienda (mid-day and mid-afternoon snack). Very popular, sometimes you have to wait.

The food is amazing! I was so impressed with the entire experience because I didn't know that it was going to be so classy. The food looks like something you would see on TV. This is a great restaurant if you are looking for a very nice dinner or a quick pastry while passing through. This place is a must when visiting Asuncion.

This Place has really great food, and a really good atmosphere and parking very close by. It is a good place for a date, for a business lunch, and even for something more casual. It has an indoor fancy setting, a cafe informal setting, and even an outdoor casual setting where you can catch local sports.

This must be the best restaurant in Asuncion. The menu is extensive. The place is buzzing. I ate here twice during my 3 day stay, and my only problem was deciding what to eat. I watched how the staff severed seemly mouth watering dishes, and I kept changing my mind.

The restaurant offers outstanding value for money. A starter, a large steak main course and a litre of beer cost £14 ( €17, $23 )

It is extremely popular, and a wait may be encountered if you want a table for 3 or more. It may be worth booking ahead

I first visited the Bolsi - originally called "La Pergola del Bolsi" - during my first visit to Asuncion in 1974 and make a point of returning whenever I am in that city. Like the nearby Lido Bar and the San Roque, the Bolsi is something of an institution and is usually fairly full, even outside normal mealtimes. The menu is extremely extensive and includes both national and international favourites yet I have never yet had a meal there that is less than completely satisfying. I have already enthused about it in previous reviews and can only justify another on the fact that - unlike other establishments - it is always consistent.
