Spectacular menu, lots of choices for vegetarians/vegans. Actually been a long time since I needed so much time to make up my mind what to order.

I went there for a very late night dinner. Food was delicious. Atmosphere is great too, it is a very popular place (rightly so).

I went with a colleague on the recommendations of many who live or have lived in Asuncion. Absolutely fantastic fish stew (and tremendous bread basket). Great service, and nice ambience to boot. Their empanadas make a great lunch option, as well!

Normal local restaurant, Polite and quick service but only in Spanish A great place to watch the city go by and close to the exchange house which gives great rates on Sterling & Dollars.

It's open all the day and the night, 24 hs. It's a classic place where you could ate a traditional food and another plates. It's full of people and very fanny

Bolsi has three parts - a fine restuarant - the go to place for Business Lunch; a u Shaped counter, And an outside dining in the sidewalk. I think it's open 24 hours and it's an Asuncion institution. The cafe serves standard Paraguayan dishes, empanadas, Milanesas,micros etc. It's a bit pricy, but it's high quality. I eat the beef empanadas... More
