This restaurant not only had fantastic food but also, service which was above and beyond the call of duty as the host went out of his way to accommodate our requests. Highly recommended.

To be sincere, there's not to much in Potosí, which looks save (on food) and clean. This place is one of them. Good food, clean, and great service.

Low key and quiet place with a nice owner that brought us an extra heater. Cheap and well prepared food, vegetables baked in the oven 👍

The food was cheap, authentic and very edible but I couldn't grade it higher as it was all rather scruffy and the building needed some repair. The tablecloth and utensils were clean. The owner was happy and tried to help us with the menu.

We ate here twice during our stay in Potosi. The gentleman who runs it is the friendliest man that we met in South America. He was welcoming, he tried to bridge language barriers to explain things to you, he was simply amazing. The food was also good. We had soups on our first visit. Spinach soup, i hadn't given spinach... More

A very cute little resturant run by a gorgeous Bolivian man. He runs the entire place buy himself being waiter and chef. He is very engaging and funny. Food is good with mostly soups and some BBQ meat and pasta. Due to his one man show which I applaud service is slow. Unfortunately a large group had come in and... More

We enjoyed our meal here and the owner was welcoming. It seemed like he served and cooked everything single handedly so things did take a while to arrive. I had some tasty beef (although I wasn't keen on the soy based sauce and would have preferred something simpler) and my husband had a freshly made pasta dish. The garlic bread... More

We arrived just before a large group of tourists ordered and were worried that the food would take forever, however the owner/waiter was kind enough to serve us our food just before the large group received theirs. That was a very nice touch. Otherwise he was extremely friendly and chatty despite being very busy. The menu is relatively simple, but... More

The food was decent but the portions a bit small maybe. We really loved the spinach soup. As others have said, the best thing about the restaurant is the extremely friendly owner.

We were not sure if we could enter because the place is for sale at the moment we went. It seemed the owner has troubles with his bank. It would be a shame for the place to be gone. As the food was nice, ingredients fresh and the owner is very enthusiastic and honest. If you don't speak Spanish it... More
