Just wanted my husband's family to enjoy some good Cochabamba hospitality and cuisine. Got there because the place was well located and looked nice. Looked up on Facebook and reviews are disabled, first red flag. They couldn't handle a half empty restaurant on a Friday night. Our table of 8 had to wait over 2 hours for food and everything came cold except one plate. Drinks came 15 minutes from one another. Different dietary requests were not met (vegetarian, no pork, etc.) The vegetarians got sick the next day even though they couldn't finish their oily and bland dishes (pasta). When the owner was approached because we refused to pay the bill he said he just got surgery and was understaffed (hope he gets better but don't really understand what one thing has to do with the other, HIRE HELP) the prices were not cheap and the service was poor. The place is freezing cold in the winter! They tried to make us pay for the drinks, not a joke! Someone actually chased us outside the place for it! Bottom line don't go there. Even a burger on the side of the road will taste better, cost less and service will be a hundred times better.

I don't know where to begin... The restaurant is well located and open on Sunday which is great since is really hard to find an open restaurant like this in Cochabamba. That's where all the good things end.

The Service is badddddddddddddd, very very bad. The food? Well, I was lucky enough to received some cold but burnt bread pieces and a "salad" after waiting for almost an hour.. it was supposed to have grilled paprika and mushrooms, and a Dijon mustard vinaigrette, but, no, it just didn't. I called the managed and asked him to fix the issue, the left with the salad and returned with "all the ingredients personally made by the chef"... The salad was below average, then I waited for another 45 minutes and never received my chicken risotto ... so I asked the waitress for my bill, when I asked for a personalized invoice, they couldn't do it because "they ran out of paper".... I mean what???

At the end and after complaining they gave us some kind of personalized bill. I got the change to see the chef and see how he interacted with the manager, and believe me! what a joke of a chef he is...

Horrible experience, the worst in my life! save your time and do not go...
