This was always our go-to restaurant for great steaks and fish. Not quite like it used to be. Our yuca frita was mushy and not fired well. My ojo de bife was rare on one end and well done on the other even though the thickness was the same. Sitting outside is pleasant, however the quality of food has gone down over the years. Have been coming here for over 30 years and sad to say, it is not the same. Waitstaff is ok. Some friends said it is the place to go for trucha, but my mother-in-law had the trucha and it was good but not great, a bit dry.

We had a delicious lunch today at La Estancia. It came highly recommended and did not disappoint.

The restaurant has a pleasant ambiance and nicely decorated tables and stitched napkins with the restaurant’s name.

We started out with the salad bar option, drinks, bread, and awaited the steaks! Deliciously prepared, good-sized portions (I took part of mine home) along with terrific service.

Recommended!

Rightly one of the best restaurants in town and also one of the best steaks I've eaten in the world. The meat is cooked on a charcoal grill in the middle of the restaurant. Even vegetarians do not starve: there is a good salad buffet. The wine selection is also good.

We go pretty much every week, usually Friday night, and ALWAYS have a fabulous experience. I get trout, wifey gets chicken, we both get lemonade and the salad buffet, sometimes with a side of fried yucca. We love it and highly recommend it to anyone wanting great food, service and ambiance at a fair price.

Our boss took my friend and I out with his family to La Estancia on our final night in Cochabamba. We had a phenomenal meal. The service was good and the food was tasty. There was a large salad bar.
