Eli's has a sit-down restaurant (think diner style) across the street from their pizza take-out location. It's old Hollywood-themed and offers a very good and varied menu even on weekends. I almost always order the "Paila de lomito", which is basically meat and potatoes in a stewy onion and bell pepper sauce with eggs on top. Delicious and heart-warming on... More

Arrived no greeting, ordered pizza was average, went to pay, waited for the manager to finish on the phone, started to take payment then stopped to take another phone call. Clearly don't cause customers and as pizza average suggest you go elsewhere.

Eli's has been around for a while and used to be a descent choice for a family or business meal. However, it is disappointing their prices have gone up while their quality has decreased. Their food is now mediocre (their meat was hard and didn't taste fresh), service could be better, staff is a bit incompetent. Not returning there no... More

Second visit to La Paz and to this restaurant – great food and service - ice cold bottles of Coca-Cola. Small location in downtown La Paz – not pretentious, but nice, clean, good food and reasonable pricing. Make sure you are hungry if you order the jumbo or interminable size – both are huge. My understanding is the original owner... More

The Restaurant Eli's has been around forever. They have great dishes and desserts. Their portions are very big enough to share if you like. Perfect for families

US diner restaurant, popular with locals. But food is a little bland although portion size is epic. Great value. Don't be tempted by the yummy looking cakes though, as will most desserts in South America, they were very dry!

In spite of announcing that all come with double cheese, the one we ordered had almost no cheese at all, and spite of listing in the menu all the vegetarian ingredients, it only had few of them and in very low amount. This is actually one of the worst pizzas you can try in La Paz you better turn to... More

Our family's favorite spot to eat. Many of the employees have been working there over 30 years. Harry, the owner, passed away just two short years ago, and we remember him fondly and were saddened to hear this news. Sajta de Pollo, Milanesa, and lots of other Bolivian dishes are standard fair here. Love them all. Don't miss going downstairs... More

Bolivia didn´t have an Italian immigration. Nor do Bolivians know good pizza because they´ve never had it! (one exception: Minuteman Pizza Uyuni). That being said, no matter the location Eli's Pizza Express is fast and cheap. These are it´s only good points. PreBaked crusts will never make the grade in a pizzaiolo´s (pizza expert) world. Best go to Uyuni or... More
