Couldn't fault the food here - we came here two nights in a row. A reasonably varied menu including traditional dishes and Tex Mex. Dishes are simple but very tasty. Prices are B$25-40 for mains.

The room is simply decorated with Frida Kahlo prints and multi-coloured tablecloths. Margaritas are excellent, and the service is attentive and friendly.

The food here, I have to say, is absolutely outstanding. I have eaten more than my share of good Mexican, having lived in southern California for 13 years and lived with an excellent Mexican cook for 8 months. I am also a bit of a foodie and I know good food, and the food at Chile is hands down the best Mexican food I've ever had at a restaurant. It compared with the tastiest home-cooked meals made by my Mexican friend's mother, who has lived her whole life in Morelia, and speaks almost no English. The style of Chile's food is Oaxacan, and although I can't specifically comment on it's authenticity when compared to other Oaxacan cuisine, I can absolutely guarantee that you won't find better Mexican food anywhere else in Bolivia (although there is a place in Cota Cota (a suburb just south of La Paz) called Girasoles that is almost as good). You'd be hard pressed to find Mexican food this good at these prices almost anywhere in South America! I had the pollo en mole, which was phenomenal, and my friend had the pollo en crema de chipotle, which was utterly outstanding. The margaritas are also very, very good. We were informed that they do a buffet lunch on Sundays, but I didn't have a chance to go back to check it out. You can be sure that I will do that next time! My only negative comment is that the service was a bit slow, but all things considered, that's not much of a problem!
