We had a wonderful dinner at el vagon del sur. The steak stew wasn particularly good as were the fried trout fritters. Service was excellent. It´s not in the heart of the business district but not far from the green teleferico.

A nice and very clean restaurant! Our party had a reservation and they had a nice table indoors for us. The food was good as was the service. They did not offer vegetarian dishes as advertised.

By far, this restaurant serves the best Bolivian cuisine. Granted, the dishes are pretty big (specially anything with steak) but their flavor palette and balance is always on cue and their customer service is always ready to help and very polite. If you like good...More
