Satisfied or your money back!!! Our mission is to make Sucre the place most comfortable place, climate-environment-people-services … so you don’t want to leave us!

“Just o.k”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

Wasnt really anything special. Only ordered a salad and what was supposed to be a tuna sandwich....it was fish of some description but certainly not tuna?!? And as for the salad it was 90% just a plate of lettuce. Also the service was very slow considering the place was nearly empty! Probably better as a place to go and hang out and drink rather than eat!

“Go there!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

Movienights, free cocktails, free salsa lessons, free wifi, free maps of the town, good menu but a little bit on the expensive side.

“Great spot for a movie and a tasty bite!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

Spent 3 weeks in Sucre and spent about 10 of those nights in Joy Ride Cafe catching the excellent movies they show in their own mini cinema! Leather seats aren´t overly comfortable but the movie is good quality on a big screen. Nice to watch with a beer or a cup of tea and sometimes a bite to eat. The food is really tasty here although I think overpriced for Bolivian standards. Try the patatas rellanas on the veggie menu, soooo good! The wings and chips weren´t bad either. Good atmosphere with candle-lit tables and efficient service!

“Poor service and disappointing food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2012

We booked the bus to the Tarabuca markets with joyride. The bus never showed up and the 2 guys in the office spent an hour messing about while we waited, until they organised that we all pile into the back of an uncomfortable van to get there on the bumpy, dusty road, I know sometimes things happen but a bad attitude and no apology is unacceptable when running a business. We had eaten in the restaurant the previous night where we got more bad service and cold food. The only plus is the movie room which we liked.

“Cafe playing movies every day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2012

We did not eat in the cafe, but we could enjoy a free movie (the agency gave us some free tickets). They have a pretty good list of movies, among which they play every monday and friday, the "Devil's Miners" movie, about the Silver mines in Potosi. Very sad movie but very interesting. I think this is a very good way of attracting tourists with interesting and cultural content.
