“Lovely steak for little price”
Reviewed June 20, 2011

Nice restaurant, attentive staff, great chateaubriand for 40bs! Shame about the side of frozen veg but the steak was a bargain and very good piece of meat.

“Good soup and steak”
Reviewed March 6, 2011

We ate here on a Sunday night. I was sceptical after reading other reviews but our hotel said only two restaurants were open on Sunday night and since it was raining, El Meson was closest. Both my husband and I had soup to start. The soups were very good. He had a steak and I had chicharrons. His steak was good my chicharrons were awful. If you go, order steak and soup and you'll be fine. The staff was friendly but a little inexperienced. The restaurant has a large menu but many things are not available, like a glass of white wine. They only had red by the glass.

“Very good steaks at a reasonable price!”
Reviewed February 21, 2011

My husband and I both ordered steaks, so I cannot say anything about the other items on the menu. The steaks were very tender and tested very good! The price was reasonable as well: 40 BOB ($5.74) for filet mignon with vegitabes, garlic bread, and french fries.

The service was evage but not bad as well.

Overall, it was a nice place to have dinner!

“A sad reflection on Potosi if this is the best in town”
Reviewed October 22, 2010

We ate here based on a recommendation in the Footprints guide. The service was laughably bad - candle on table lit half way through meal, warm bottled water and used starter forks handed back to us. The food was even worse - we ordered a Caprese salad which was more dry rubbery cheddar than mozerella and then steaks which whilst well cooked were served with just ten chips and a spoonful of soggy mixed veg. We cut our losses and decided not to have dessert. Wine was very overpriced at 700bs for a half bottle.

“The best in town”
Reviewed September 4, 2008

Very good cook. Service is good as well. The only negative point is the heat. The room is too hot! You have to pull off all your clothes till the t-shirt! But best place in town for the tipical cook. You have to go at least once before leaving Potosi.
